Life before kids?
(I'm kidding. I totally remember they years when I thought I was in charge).
Luckily I have some darling newlywed friends who remind me to be blissfully in love, super snuggly, and incredibly thoughtful of my spouse. I recently got to be a part of one of these sweet moments.
Elease messaged me a month before her husband's birthday, saying she wanted to plan a special surprise for Joel's birthday. She wanted to bring a treat into his work, but wanted it to be something unique, something he could easily share with his co-workers and of course, something he'd like.
We decided on cake pops.
Adorable, right? How sweet are they?
So instead of having a cake to write happy birthday on, I decided to make a custom cake pop stand to write happy birthday on. I pretty much did the same thing as I did on my halloween stands, but used a wider board so I could fit 3 rows.
The cake pops cover it up a little, but as they get eaten, the birthday message is clear!
I wanted this pop stand to be manly, rustic and beachy. Totally different than my polkadot ones.
And for the pops, I went with an ombre look. I used blue candy melts, then for the next batch, mixed blue and white, then for the next batch used even more white. We made the stand fit 40+ pops because that is the number of coworkers she wanted to "treat."
Isn't this just a sweet story?
Doesn't it make you want to go spoil/surprise your spouse?
Elease and Joel are some of my favorite people! You can get to know them on their adorable blog: http://www.thelittlelovebirds.blogspot.com/ Their blog inspires me to treasure life and most of all, love.
