Last weekend we were lucky enough to spend the weekend in Mandurah (a beautiful seaside town) with DNo 1 and her family. As usual we hit the shops - Spotlight to be exact and we picked up the pack of 4 cupcake plates for $10 - wow!! We both bought a pack so we have 8 between us to share!
They really inspired me to do some baking so it thought the most obvious thing to bake would be...
chocolate muffins!! While out shopping we also purchased some lovely Robert Gordon patty pans in a cute blue floral print. Just perfect I thought!
I had puchased a length of brown fabric with blue polka dots on it for the cloth (think the dots sent my camera funny cos the pictures aren't too good!) so used that with some pale blue napkins. I used my very old brown cups and saucers from our wedding (33 years!!) and they matched perfectly. I still have the complete set with no chips. To frill things up a little I used a small white doily under the cup - these I 'borrowed' from my sister's coffee shop. I had this gorgeous cottage garden book that we browsed through as we had our cuppa.
The Donna Hay sugar sticks are my favourites - I don't know what I will do when they run out! They come in a container with four different colours - all pastels - pink, green, blue and a creamy colour.
I am still using my old camera while my good one is being fixed so I'm sorry the photos aren't too flash - I thought they looked better cropped!!
