For a Strawberry Shortcake Party:
submitted by Dionne Ramdeen of Jamaica W.I.
Use green bamboo sticks (the thin branches) or any stick of the same nature and attach plastic strawberries with a glue gun to make long strawberry looking plants. Place in a tall vase that is not too slim at your entrance table or any side table in the room where the party will be. I will be using this at my cousin Paris's 1st birthday party on July 3, 2005.
Also I printed strawberry shortcake and her friends of all different sizes, including Marmalade and the lady bugs on a colour printer which i have cut out using a pair of scissors or a stencil knife. These will be pasted on a large wall using tape and used as a backdrop for the table.
I will be making a stawberry wreath with a big butterfly attached to give it a different look from just using strawberries, leaves and ribbons.
Here is a cake that Pam submitted for a couple's wedding reception. They wanted to have it be themed Jeep/4-wheeling. They also wanted to use bright colors. It turned out beautiful and the couple were very happy!
