My step-daughter recently turned 18, which gave me the perfect excuse to drag out all of the adorable serveware gear I had left over from our wedding and allowed me to use, some for the first time, a few wedding gifts that we received. I was finally able to put to use the chocolate fountain and drink dispenser I got from my wedding registry along with some adorable appetizer/dip bowls a friend had given me at my shower. Combine those with the silver trays leftover from my centerpieces and the 3-tier dessert stand I made with old china from Goodwill and I had a pretty cute little setup for this peach, gold & Tiffany blue dessert station.[caption id="attachment_48059" align="aligncenter" width="500"] 6" Platinum Square Ivory Plastic Plates[/caption]
Hannah, my step daughter specially requested a white chocolate fountain for her party and I was happy to oblige. I used wrapping paper as a quick and easy disposable table runner that not only looked cute and reflected her musical talents (she plays violin) but protected my buffet from dripping chocolate.
I created hand-made paper fans and strung them from the ceiling with fishing line in front of a Tiffany blue curtain that I hung behind our buffet.[caption id="attachment_48057" align="aligncenter" width="500"] 12 oz Fluted Plastic Glass Party Tumblers[/caption]
I created an antique serving tray chalkboard sign with some cheap silver serving trays I picked up at Goodwill and chalkboard paint.
We created an indoor S'mores and marshmallow pop station using a steno in conjunction with the "pink" white chocolate fountain. Guests could make marshmallow pops or chocolate-dipped s'mores.

I used wrapping paper to create a DIY birthday banner in our entry way. I used the same wrapping paper as a table runner on the dining room table.
I created a wine bar using an old nightstand, pulling out the drawers and hold the wine glasses.
