CAKES CAKES CAKES

Oh MY!  Four very lovely and very talented ladies pooled their amazing cake decorating skills and designed the most fabulous dessert table as a celebration of Mother's Day!  Using the same color palette of pinks, blues, and whites, each decorated cakes and brought them together for one STUNNING display!  These cakes would be welcomed at any celebration at any time of the year- they are gorgeous!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

I think family photos are so sweet to have and to look back on.  I wanted to share this beautiful image with you for Mother's Day- shared with us by Molly White.  

This photo was taken almost 30 years ago and yet looks timeless as it shows the special bond between a mother and child. 

And so this Mother's Day, remember to step from behind the camera and capture sweet moments with your children, mothers, grandmothers. 

You're not supposed to be doing any of the work, anyway~

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY from The Party Wagon!

 


Thank you, Molly, for sharing your sweet photo!

COOKIES AND CREAM~ Simple Mother's Day Dessert Idea

We all know moms love flowers and purses...and COOKIES!  So, why not put them all together for a simple but pretty and delicious dessert!

These gorgeous cookies were baked by Ginger of GINGERSNAPS CUSTOM COOKIES in Athens, Ga!

Ginger bakes custom orders one order at a time so everything is fresh and delicious~

GingerSnaps Custom Cookies helped us add a little pizzazz to our Mother's Day desserts.  I love how the children can do this one and serve it to their grandmothers.  They feel soooo special getting to be in charge of the dessert.  They scoop the ice cream and then decide which adorable cookie to place on top.  EASY!!  Oh, and just add sprinkles as requested by the kiddos.

Place in a pretty dish and the moms, grandmoms, aunts, and sisters will feel very special!

GINGERSNAPS CUSTOM COOKIES offers a big variety of choices.  These are some of my favorites for summer.  What a great addition to a party or idea for a hostess gift or teacher gift! 

AND SOME MORE OF MY FAVORITES...

Ginger serves the Athens area.  Please order 2 weeks in advance.
