food for thought

my birthday party with my best friend is in little under 2 weeks! i'm so excited, but now that everything is ordered and organised, there's nothing left to do until the last couple days before, which will consist of setting up, decorating the room (so excited), making all the food and baking and icing all the cupcakes. i'm keeping my fingers crossed for gorgeous spring weather.
while the savoury food (think cous cous, pasta salad, roasted veggies, etc.) is going to be served up in big bowls on each table for the guests, we're thinking about having a sweet little dessert table with a few cake stands on it that we can put on the tables when it's time for something sweet (along with a speech i'm dreading by mine and my friend's mutual school friend, who has a penchant for bringing up everything embarassing you have ever done!). so i thought i'd share some of the dessert table inspiration that i've dug up over the past couple days (and lo and behold, another use for a cupboard!)

i think we're going to go with something simple. while i'd love tons of flowers and bunting, we're already near the end of our budget. but the table we are going to use is to tiny, i can't imagine much more than some perfectly iced cuppies will fit on it anyway! and maybe a couple balloons sneaked in for good measure :)

also, today's lunch:
