Boy Bash on a Budget Challenge

[Boy Bash] Construction Truck Dessert Table

By  | Last Updated:  

Every Tuesday till early September we’re going to be featuring a budget themed dessert table or tablescape from the talented women who have graciously volunteered to take on our Boy Bash on a Budget Challenge. And we’re even going to throw our own work into the ring from time to time and follow the same budget confines. Every participant gets the Spaceships and Laser Beams Collection of their choice + $50 for a dessert table or $20 for a tablescape. They can also use anything they are able beg or borrow, make themselves or already own.

Tuesday’s Boy Bash on a Budget Challenge submission was a gorgeous construction themed dessert table from Ali of the blog Jen and Ali. Well, being the overacheiver that she is, Ali created an outdoor version of the table. With its location and homemade treats, it is the perfect counterpoint to her slick interior version. Budget breakdown at the end of the post!

Stephanie is in love with a boy named Sam. He has taught her that it's okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots. She hangs out here blogging at Spaceships and Laser Beams and at our printable party shop on Etsy.
