Well, my kids loved it so much that I had it memorized. This book just makes me want to tell my story like the book, just because it's about a tray. Not a pizza tray, but a serving tray.
Anyway, this is the tray that Dacia bought...
I needed a white serving tray for this baby shower and I just couldn't find one that wasn't expensive, so I thought up an idea while I was at Walmart.
I saw this Better Homes and Gardens serving tray from their Spring line and it was perfect except it had orange & green flowers and such on it. I looked at it and thought, "Now that would be perfect if it was white."
I figured that I could change the look of the tray with some great paper and some awesome MOD PODGE. And since it was only $6 I figured if it didn't work out, it wouldn't be too much money down the drain.
I bought the tray and some scrapbook paper and went to town on this tray and this is the result. I absolutely love it and it worked perfectly with the decor and theme.
All I did was tear paper, cover it with Mod Podge and stuck it to the tray. Once the entire inside of the tray was covered, I Mod Podged over the entire surface.
I bought white wood letters from Michaels and used paper, Mod Podge, rub ons & ribbon.
I glued the letters to a piece of masonite, so I wouldn't have to worry about them falling over.
I wanted to share these because they are about to change as we're changing the colors of the girls' room.
For 3 years in a row now, during the Christmas season, some friends and I have thrown a girls' night cocoa party. It's perfect because we live in a COLD, snowy place and it's a great time to get together with the girls, have a cup of cocoa and have a good time. It's so fun to decorate too :)
You've always got to start with the invite.
This is the cute invitation and if you couldn't tell, the theme is snow. It's a little snow globe if you couldn't tell :)
A few of the party details...
These branches were a lot of fun to spray paint. We sprayed them with the fake snow while we were standing out in the snow!
We had to place them out of the way because every time you touched them, the snow would fall everywhere! If you're thinking of doing this, spray paint them white instead :)
The spread. In the center is our pile of snowballs. Those were fun to spray snow on too :)
Donut holes that were supposed to be powdered sugar donut holes. We ordered them from the store and they were glazed, not powdered sugar. We had to roll them in powdered sugar to get the snowball effect.
