Today I bring to you more Pink Lemonade décor.
I hope you aren’t sick of me yet…haha!
These things are super easy to make. I did however forget to take pictures of me making it, but I’ll tell you what all I did. Did I mention it is super cheap? I had the plates on hand, but they were from the dollar store so, $3 plus the candlesticks that I got at a thrift store was I think $2 and I had the paint on hand. So technically I spent like $2 : ) Oh yeah!!
Now, the cookies on the other hand were a big fat FAIL! Have you ever made the cookies with the cool whip and box of cake mix? Well normally they are quite easy to make. Well… when you are in a hurry that turns from easy to “I can’t read” they still taste fine because I think some people actually make them this way but I usually use 1/2 of a cool whip container and I used a whole one. So they usually are these cute little balls of deliciousness but these got huge and flat, and I had to cook them a little longer so they look a little burnt. Of course we still ate them!
At least I didn’t do this for Addison’s party… good thing I decided to do a test run!
I’ll be sharing the CORRECT recipe soon too… once I make them right first. : )
Spray Paint Primer
Paint of your color choice
Spray paint your plates and candlesticks with the primer. I did two coats to make sure I had a nice smooth finish. Let dry.
Spray paint the plates and candlesticks the color you picked out. Let Dry.
Find the center of the plates and glue the candlesticks to the plates. I used super glue because that’s what I had. I honestly wouldn’t suggest it because well it’s just not as strong as the E6000 glue. Whenever it falls apart I will fix it with that. lol.
I’m getting more and more excited about the party reveal! Then, no more pink lemonade party and onto the quilts I plan to make!
Have a beautiful day!

Love the yellow in there!
I was wondering if the paint was food safe?
Cherished Bliss says
No I don't believe it's food safe. It's just regular spray paint that I used. I don't plan on putting food directly onto it except maybe the cookies. I will probably use it for cupcakes and such that already have the liners. : )
I have always wanted to make one of these! This is sooo cute, I love it. Your latest follower, Tanya :)
