End of July I took a leap and hosted my first craft night out at Opal 28. The attendees and I painted trinket dishes using paints by Plaid Craft.
All that crafting at Fizzy Party Trop Fest can make one hungry so lets get on over to the dessert bar and load up our plates.
First stop, the bar for a drink. We're going to need something to wash down all those tasty treats. Being a tropical themed party your drink would just be boring if you didn't dress it up. Dressing up a drink doesn't have to be expensive. Flamingo straws and palm tree stirrers from Oriental Trading are inexpensive and add a lot of fun to drinks.

Let's dish up. Thank goodness for Instagram because when I saw Pink Poppy Party Shoppe post these napkins I knew they were perfect for the event. Love when that happens. And I had so many attendees ask me about these great plates from Create Ur Plate. Small Moments created the graphics for me. The great thing about these plates is that you can peel off the graphic underneath and save it for the next party.
So, I might have gone a little overboard on the dessert bar ;) I have quite the sweet tooth after all. Lux Sucre who I met a few years ago at a wedding show made all the delicious baked goods.
As much as I love baked goods I'm all over the sugary treats. Jelly Belly jelly beans have got to be at the top of my candy weakness list. I can't tell you how many scoops of jelly beans I ate that night.
I should have saved one of the pineapple candy kabobs from Sweets Indeed because they went fast! Marquee Design PDX was all excited about them. I think she's my candy sister soul mate.
If you're into gourmet popcorn you would have ignored the dessert table and headed straight to the big bowl of Poplandia Popcorn . Coconut on one side and NW raspberry on the other. The honeycomb balls from Shindigz complimented the popcorn perfectly.
None of the attendees could resist these stinkin cute pineapple shaped strawberry filled macarons that Delectable Baked Goods created for the event. I pushed her macaron skills by asking her to create pineapple shaped macarons. I'd say she gets an A+
Strawberry meringue's dipped in chocolate and dressed in pink sprinkles.
Rock candy is so fun, comes in so many great colours and just says, PARTY!!!
I don't know about you but I'm stuffed.
