As you can see I have temporarily set it up with a cute "dip" bowl on top and I think it matches the Garden Tea party theme perfectly and would look cute with crackers or veggies etc... This is how Honey and Ms. Thang have voted on how I should officially glue it. Here is a closer look at the little frog detail:
I LOVE it! I got this little bowl at Trade n Treasures for about a dollar. (Oh and see that plastic bag on the counter? It is full of potatoes that my grandma used today to make me super delicious jumbo homemade french fries. I love her a little more now than ever before lol)
So what is my dilemma if I have 2 votes for the frog dish and it fits the party theme? Well...I like the look of the plates so much I want to keep it for other future parties and if I set it up with the frog dish, it wouldn't fit other themes as much, although it would still look cool in my kitchen. So here are some other options I came up with.
How about skipping the glue and just setting the dish on top with dip?
Or how about this (my personal favorite) but it would have to wait until I found a similar plate because I am NOT gluing my Fiesta ware on here, no matter how cute.
I also have this other flower bowl which looks a little more plain without the frog, and something about the frog in a non-garden party setting grosses me out. Imagine the frog with queso and chips ..kinda eww right? Not that I couldn't use a skipped chip or two.
I could glue it up higher on the candle stick too, I just didn't bother with that for the picture. I also have to add that I don't like the sides of this bowl as much as the frog one. It looks more like a jaggedy topped white bowl than a flower in profile.
So what's the verdict? Make it more compatible with other party occasions, or keep it perfect for the theme of Cutecumbers 2nd birthday party which was the plan for it all along. Speaking of her, how cute is this?
Oh, and almost as popular as the candlestick/ plate cake stands, are the candlestick/cheese dome cloches and I made another one yesterday.
I plan to use them at the party also, filled with cute little cookies or finger sandwiches. That pear and peach set inside are made of marble or some type of heavy stone. The Scientist is intrigued by them and I hope curiosity doesn't get the best of him.
Here is a shot of the little dude today, doing what he does..
That's all folks!
