31 Days of Decadent Desserts {Day 18} Giveaway #3 - Fall Baker's Party Pack


October's Party
~George Cooper

October gave a party; 
The leaves by hundreds came - 
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples, 
And leaves of every name. 
The Sunshine spread a carpet, 
And everything was grand, 
Miss Weather led the dancing, 
Professor Wind the band. 

The third and final giveaway of the month, is something that I've put together for one lucky winner.

Now that we are in the midst of autumn, the weather has turned crisp and those sweaters that were in hiding during the summer months have finally made their way back out. Fall is a perfect time for patio parties, hay rides, and bonfires. And any party wouldn't be complete without desserts.

When you are thinking about Fall desserts what do you think of? Apple pie? Pumpkin cake? Gingerbread cookies?

Even desserts that aren't particularly "Fall" can take on the hue with a few easy changes.

Plain cupcakes can be enhanced by using autumnal cupcake liners and flags or colored icing. 

Spice up an ordinary cake with a cake banner.

And those cookies could go from simple to stellar by using fall cookie cutters and sprinkles.

My hospitality tip: Even the simplest of spruce-ups can make your guests feel special.

Now we come to the giveaway part. To start you off with your own collection of Autumn dessert enhancements I am giving away:

Turkey cupcake papers (25 pack)

Twenty-four autumnal cupcake flags

Autumnal cake banner (fits on any size cake)

Oak leaf cookie cutter

Four pack of assorted fall sprinkles

This giveaway is open to readers in the US only. Sorry international readers! The giveaway will stay open through next Wednesday. If you leave a comment on this post you are automatically entered into the giveaway.

Thanks for linking up, Kati! You sure do go the extra step to welcome people into our home! I wonder how I'll ever do it when you are no longer living here...but you are going to be an amazing hostess in your own home someday! ♥

Your giveaway is so sweet. But don't include me in the draw since I live in Canada. I'm popping over from Cheryl's hospitality tips party.

Kati, I am not great at doing all those little extra touches -- I'm still trying to implement all your mom's tips from her LAST 31 Days! Throw my name in too, these are things I don't tend to buy for myself:)

Mrs.Rabe said...

Those little touches make something basic into something special!

What fun items!


Katherine said...
