Parties by WH Hostess: Francesca’s Bake Shoppe II

I hoped you enjoyed the details of Francesca’s Bake Shoppe birthday party this morning!  I’m back now with all of the yummy details of her “bake shoppe” cookie dessert table.  First, let me start off by saying that when I initially helped Francesca’s mom come up with the concept/plan for this table, I never imagined it would turn out THIS CUTE!  The stand itself was made by Grand Soirées Event Design & Coordination, with a custom stripe fabric awning.  The front was decorated with a coordinating pennant banner that said “bake shoppe”.

Gallon cookie jars were accessorized with coordinating paper liners, cookie jar tags and ribbon, and each held a different type of cookie.  French macaroons, chocolate-covered {with pink polka dots} oreos, sugar cookies in the shape of “1”, jam-filled cookies and more…..  Wooden tongs were placed in front of each jar for easy serving.  To give the back row of cookie jars a boost up, and give the table a new dimension, a moss-covered riser was placed in the center and held both the jars and a DARLING tiered cake.

Guests went home with take out boxes full of cookies and the kiddos also took home a tin of bubbles {accessorized with a custom label}.  I love how she tied in the moss from the dessert table by lining her lucite trays with it!

  • It is so hard to say what I would make with this. It does so many awesome things. I would like to make party goods, appearal, paper goods, scrapbooking, etching somethings would be cool and vinyl letters. I have been wanting this machine for a very long time. I would be SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy to be the new owner of the Shilouette! I promise to share my goodies if I am the winner. :) Thanks, Ashley

    Likewise, I have pinning for one of these for a while, of course love the vinyl decorations; but I can well imagine that our clothes are going to take on a “new look”! Thank you for all the inspiration you have offered over the years. AM loving the new magazine.

    Hi – I’d probably start with a card of some sort to break myself in. And then who knows! So much potential. I really like the etched glasses. Thanks, Maureen (jnomaxx at hotmail dot com)

    PS. For some reason the site took me to the cake comments rather than the Shilouette comments. Hopefully this comment here counts. Thanks!

    I absolutely love throwing parties and making the crafts to coordinate, and the Silhouette would really take all of those party crafts to another level… They would start looking more like the awesome events Kelly puts together! Thanks for your blog, magazine, and shop, Kelly!

    I loved the pink elephant baby shower in the new ezine! I give a lot of parties and I’m also an elementary school librarian so the Silhouette would be used for all kinds of decorating. I probably would start with a banner to welcome students back to school.

    I could do so much iwith the Siloutte. It would be so helpful for my wedding. I especially love all the paper crafts I could do.

    I would love to use the Silouette to make items for my home, crafts with my kids and lots of great things to use with my preschool kids I teach. My own kids are old enough and creative to use it themselves and help me learn to use it.
