Prairie Pastry Shoppe-The Bake Sale

Every year our school has a big carnival, and this year I wanted to try a bake sale for fun.  Mostly because I like to pretend I have my own store that I can dress up.  It’s my adult version of playing dress up I guess. The end result was a gorgeous boutique bake sale and it was a huge, huge success.  We had over 800 items for sale and we sold out. We hand wrapped each and every one of those items, thank goodness I had a fantastic crew of bakers and packagers.


Of course I had a chalkboard!


Homemade jam and incredible gourmet cupcakes.





My Martha in crime Anne had this adorable piece to add to the shop, which we filled with smore’s pops.  Anne is so much fun to work with, she gets me, she helps me take my crazy schemes and turn them into a reality.


I made the homemade caramel corn oh so yummy!


Chippy old ladder shelf.  See the car from Roger Rabbit?  Prince Charming and his dad made that when they were kids, he was perfect for some carnival atmosphere.


Tallulah is rocking our hand sewn mommy and me apron set.



When as the sun started to fade we turned our little lamps on, adorable don’t you think?  It was my my favorite part!!

It was a ton of work but so worth it, we took in over $500.00 and the families had so much fun coming in and shopping.  One sweet boy bought a cake for his grandma’s anniversary.  I hope they let us do it again next year!
