So I have offered to provide centerpieces for a trivia night to raise money for St. Jude. The theme will be Halloween (it's the weekend before) and i am trying to come up with some ideas on what i can provide.
I would like to provide mini cupcakes, sugar cookies, and rice krispy treats. I have two issues, 1) I can't think of anything else to provide 2) How do i display these? I have some 10"x10" plates that i was thinking of just putting everything on, but i'd like to give it some height.
I am also providing a gift certificate for their silent auction so I would like to try to keep the price of the non-edible items down.
Any ideas are appreciated!!
What about cake pops to match the theme or colors of the event?
Also to provide a little height under the plates you could always glue a glass (upside down) to the bottom. I did this for my daughter's birthday party treats with a black plate and a clear sundae glass and it looked really cute. It's also really affordable.
You can really do wonders with just a few plates and ribbons and boxes.
You can buy sundae bowls (tall/narrow, short/wide) at Wal-Mart and clear plates - or check the halloween isle for some festive ones. You can stack them or as TheSpottedCake said, glue them togehter (and then stack?) for height. Works like a charm and each piece is less than $3 (in fact I think the most expensive one is $2.50 here).
