Sweet and Salty {A Simple Tastes Exclusive}

I created a table exclusively with items from my wonderful sponsor, Simple Tastes!

We put our ideas together and came up with a wonderful theme that can be used not only during the fall season but also on a lighter color scheme for birthdays and baby showers.
Notice the main colors here are teal, orange and brown; but you can use the blue to create a boy's first birthday, or orange and white for a little girl and Simple Tastes customizes the products for you.

In this theme we are featuring the handmade banner, lollipop favors, cupcake toppers and bag toppers.  I used extras to add to the granola bars wrap I made with scrapbook paper.

I also made water bottle wraps with the scrapbook paper and added white twine.

The colors reminded me of sweet and salty food, here we have trail mix, granola bars, crackers, peanuts and banana pecan cupcakes. 

Some items under this collection are already listed on Simple Tastes Etsy Shop :

Contact Angilyn at Simple Tastes if you are interested in any of the other products used here and find Simple Tastes on Facebook.

Thanks to SaJa Angel Memories for taking our dessert table pictures!

We proudly helped raised our goal of $100 and I managed to host a stand with no expenses other than the ingredients to make fresh lemonade....
