What a great site. How to choose? Each one I look at gets my creativity sparking. I am involved with ladies ministries and also young children. I can’t wait to plan our next event with some of these ideas and more!

I like the not your typical buffet. Pretty much everything is disposable so it’s easy cleanup but still looks cute at the same time. the cone cups are such a great idea!

I love the Irish set! As someone who just threw her first St. Paddy’s day party, I wish I’d seen these earlier!

Love all their stuff! The typical buffet, the soup swap and sweet treats are a few of my faves. I always like how the barefoot Contessa has containers like that. Now I know how to get them.
Hope I am chosen!
