Yesterday, we had a bake sale for our local animal shelter. My friend Glenda and I were the "decorating committee" Smiley. Here are a few pictures from the day:

Here's the whole room completed and ready for the sale:


Closeup of the window:


I made chocolate dipped marshmallows:


Glenda made "nut jars" - they're frosted, with clear hearts and the gold tags say "I'm nuts about you"


We also did 3 different kinds of tags:
Large tags for Cakes/Pies/boxed cupcakes:


Medium tags for individual cupcakes, breads, cookies, and homemade doggy treats (pictured here):


The smallest tags are just text (we used those for the nut jars pictured above)

The sale was a HUGE success! Yesterday was the coldest day we've had this winter, so we were really worried that people wouldn't come out, but we had a steady stream of customers and raised over 600 dollars to help lower adoption fees on hard to place animals!  Thanks for looking!

I am in 100% agreement that is one of best bake sale setups I have ever seen. I love a good bake sale. I would have spent a small fortune, especially for fur babies. Smiley
