Spring party: dessert table

For my sister's graduation, my family hosted a big barbecue at a local park for family and friends.  Lara normally makes a special cake for the party (aka life-sized basketball shoe, waterbottle, trombone in case), but she had a better idea for this one.  Stephanie loves all things vintage and girly, so Lara decided to create an adorable dessert table with many different options.  She made button cookies, confetti, orange, strawberry, and lemon cupcakes, Neopolitan rice crispy treats,  Eiffel tower-shaped almond cookies, chocolate and mint fudge.  She used sewing and picnic baskets, vases, plates on stacks of vintage books, and cake stands to display all the treats.  The table was decorated with flowers in snapple jars (painted white, with the "S" painted in yellow), coffee syrup jars, baby food jars, and whatever else we could find!  Enjoy!:)
