[B]If your interested- mage was kind to post some photos I sent of my Mothers day buffet mentioned above. I wanted to show you how I used the bags and boxes, then tied the whole theme of "presents" together (at least- I tryed with my cakes). HTHhttp://cheftalkcafe.com/forums/showt...highlight=mage
for anyone who would like to see the pics, go to the link above (if the link doesnt work then cut and paste)
Scroll down to the middle of the posts to see Wendy's Buffet Bag and Box Desserts. I love the shoe/shopping theme.
Great work Wendy - I cannt post any pictures for the next 3 weeks or so but will try to sneak sometime in to do so asap after that. Totally booked for the next 3 weeks with out of town business, so wont even be home.
Just a thought, but try putting something like a very shallow plate (eg a few monkey dishes) under the boxes to pitch them foward just a bit. It showcases the interiors a bit more. Just be careful that it stays balanced and not to much of an angle.
I have some mini shopping carts that would make cute accents for your theme- I think I bought them in one of my closeout stores but I have seen them around look under gift basket items. That is another good source for decor.
