Red & ‘Chocolate’ Sweets Table

I was recently asked to do a Sweets Table on short notice (like 3 days!) for an after-school birthday party. With an autumn color palette of red and chocolate brown, here’s how it turned out.

I printed the labels provided(free) by Creature Comforts.
I found the backdrop fabric at Walmart(it’s actually a fabric shower curtain).
Put my “milk bottles” to work, filled with chocolate milk.
I stocked up on favor boxes(on sale) a while back, from Michaels.
Scrapbook papers from Michaels were also used to wrap Hershey’s Miniatures, and the favor boxes.
Red straws from Ikea.
A little Bling adhesive gems added to labels and wrappers.
