Recently, Jennifer of The Party Teacher and her daughters held a special bake sale. It was special because (1) it was really pretty and (2) the proceeds were generously donated to charity! The group that benefitted from the bake sale is The Confetti Foundation, which provides birthday party kits to children who spend their birthdays in the hospital.
Jennifer used cooking theme printables from my shop to decorate her party table, and purchased or made coordinating decor to keep with the aqua and red color scheme. The result is a bake sale setup that no one could resist! (Love this look too? Jennifer offers a step-by-step tutorial on her blog on how to plan a bake sale, including decor, shopping, recipes, advertising, and more.)
A printable sign let shoppers know that their sugar rush was for a good cause. : )
A “bake sale” banner was hung on red ribbon, which matched the adorable red pom pom table runner trim!
The “bake sale” letters were made from paper mache letters (you can find these at craft stores).
Jennifer printed 50 bake sale invitations and put them in neighbors’ mailboxes.
The bake sale treats included peanut butter cup cookies, dark chocolate brownies, lemon cookies, Oreo popcorn, and salted caramel cupcakes. Each item was labeled with a buffet card.
