Two Bite Tuesday ~ Presentation is a Gift

I get the biggest kick out of making guests feel like they are part of something bigger than a small gathering and including small touches like cute labels that identify the dishes and desserts give it that "certain feel." That's why I love these two great finds.

First Bite ~ I saw these at Pier 1 a few weeks ago and thought they were great as the photo holders they were intended to be. However, I like to find more than a single purpose for things when I can, and I thought these would make great label holders for a dessert table, so today I stopped in and was surprised and pleased to see that they were 20% off...woo hoo.

You may recall that a few weeks ago I made several desserts for my friend, Candace's birthday gathering. While I have a nice assortment of service ware for my mini desserts, I was having difficulty finding something interesting to present the mini cheesecakes on. That's when I remembered these inspirational little gems that I found over at Kind Over Matter.

Second Bite ~ Freebie printable affirmation circles

I placed a single cheesecake on each unique circle and it turned out to have a much bigger impact than I had planned. Candace loves quotes, affirmations, and positive messages so it was a kick to have each of us read our affirmations out loud and then to make comments about how they applied to us personally. This particular affirmation set was a collaborative project between four generous souls.There are a total of four sheets to the collection with 12 affirmation circles on each sheet. Below are the links for each of the sheets.

I stuck this one on the refrigerator :-)))

It's kind of fun to think about the possibilities of using different little circles as a sort of alternative fortune cookie under your favorite mini desserts. There are some wonderful designers throughout blogland more than happy to share their creative genius with us. ~ Enjoy, Janet
