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.
This Tuesday’s Boy Bash on a Budget Challenge submission is firmly rooted in the overachieving category. Not only did Ali of the blog Jen and Ali agree to participate in our crazy boy’s budget challenge, she did two versions of her construction truck themed dessert table: one set inside where she bought all the treats and one set on a construction site where she made all the treats! Today we have the indoor construction themed dessert table. Tomorrow I will feature the outdoor version. Ali has a fabulous story about how she came to have two tables (one that speaks to the challenges of trying to deal with chocolate in the middle of a heatwave, which I am sure all of us can relate to), so I have her own words in italics below. There are several items from this table that I am completely in love with — from the way the white boxes are styled to the juxtaposition of the cookie cake and dump truck — but the element I love most is the banner. It’s probably not surprising since Ali says it was inspired by something I pinned recently. LOL
Here’s more about the indoor and outdoor table in Ali’s own words!
(I’ll have the budget breakdown for the exterior table tomorrow – Stephanie)
