My Creative Space - Dessert Bar



I was actually VERY busy creating this last Thursday (bar the pom pom's & circle garlands) but couldn't share it in 'my creative space' as I didn't want to spoil the surprise.... you can read all about it and see more photos here.



I didn't make these delightful cookies or cupcakes either - Elizabeth of pARTy cakes did but I just had to show you the close up photos of them.





I did make these simple food signs that reflected the shop branding and helped tie the theme together (with a little help from clever hubby).



I also made some Almond Crescent biscuits which I am glad I didn't taste before I took them as they were way more chewy than they usually are - typical when you want them to be just right! Being a bit of a perfectionist, had I tasted them I probably would have left them at home... a silly pride thing really.



Lastly I made myself these hair pins to wear on the night!



1 week to go.... I am hoping to not be creative spacing with you next week in the nicest possible way but holding a new bub instead! We'll see!! See what everyone else is up to here.

Hey Ros,
it's nice to see that you start with an initial sketch...or mud map. Being a visual kinda person myself, I always have to draw little sketches of the items, and not just use a list of words.
You can be rightfully proud of this delightful opening night. I'm glad it all went so well for you. Hope your coming project goes very well also. Can't wait to see what you name your new family member.

Looks amazing! .... my daughter, sitting on my lap while I was reading, pointed at the biscuits and licked her lips while saying "yuuuummmmmmmmm"!

Good luck with the hopefully-not-too-far-off birth.

The goodies all look wonderful.

Just thoroughly enjoyable & all round perfection, plus your happy smile, 9 month pregnant belly & all round beautiful nature.

Ohhhh....you made my heart beat beating so fast...1 week to go!! For me, I will be offline (for confinement month) which lasts for about a month when Peanut is born mid May.

WHAT? My jaw just hit the floor when I got to the end and realised that you have other RATHER LARGE ISSUES AT HAND! It all looks fab, but sit down and sip on a cup of tea will you. And think calming thoughts. And all the very best for the perfect birth.
