The Pink Peach "Sweet Booth" Wins Best Booth at the Fall Festival!
I think the word is spreading that I have a sweet tooth and can't say no when it comes to being around them. When I was asked to help with the Sweet Booth at the school's Fall Festival I envisioned candy corns, caramel apples, cotton candy, and cupcakes. I do believe she had me at "Sweet Booth" and resistance was futile. Plus, when you add the fact that tons of kids will be made happy and getting to see their squishy little smiles...
Sadly, it didn't take any arm twisting and I was done, baked and ready to serve!
For the front of the booth I simply wrote out the letters with a marker and used construction paper to make a banner.
Thank goodness for the amazing moms who help me to coordinate these events for school! They are so creative and always willing to lend a hand. Whether just purchasing the items (which is huge) I need or helping to create what I have envisioned. My friend, Caryn helped me with creating these owls. They were made out of store bought star crunches, sticking on candy eyes and candy corn for a nose. For the pumpkins, we used orange toole purchased from Walmart and a pipe cleaner for the vine. Now, there were some "honorable mentions" if you are planning a sweet booth and wonder as I did "what will be great sellers?". The extra large pixie sticks by my friend Charity were a hit! Seriously, what kid doesn't love just straight sugar? Also, the gluten free cupcakes by my friend, Kimberley, were amazing. Everything she makes is delicious. It was so surprising to find out it was a gluten free cupcake because it tasted even better than a regular cupcake. I had to tell everyone who came up to try them! You know since it was gluten free, the guilt factor was not present and I probably ate about three of them! Just the perks to running a sweet booth!
The fall festival worked on a ticket system. Everyone purchased tickets and bought food, drinks or the ability to play a game at a booth. So this explains the tag on each of the items. Each ticket was worth a quarter.
The kids went GAAHH GAAHH over these homemade lollipops by my another mom named Kimberly. Aren't they just amazing? The cutest idea ever!! She made them with lifesavers. Yes, I did mention the moms at this school are just amazing, didn't I? They definitely all make me look good! But I have to tell the truth of the matter happily.
My sign was just perfect! Another mother volunteered to make the signs and she made mine to match our theme of Candy Corn! I loved it!
