Last Saturday night, my son's school held its annual Trivia Night and it was a lot of fun!
As well as being alot of fun, it is also one of the majot fundraiser's for the school for the year. One of the majot draws is a silent auction filled with wonderful prizes - this year we had a luxury car drive day, city food tours, fitness memberships, shopping expeditions and a highlight for me was the Uber Party Package Prize! Leanne from Sweet Style kindly donated a dessert buffet with printables package (prize in itself really) and included with that was a Blissfully Sweet cake voucher donated by moi! What a prize!
The night was Hollywood themed and so we wanted to find a fun way to dress up for the night and to make it unique and fun - no red carpet outfits for us!
So, along with my cake voucher, I made a display cake to showcase what can be done and to also match the theme of the night.
The "cake" is fondant covered styrofoam. With a little more time up my sleeve, my hubby had a brilliant idea to have Marilyn or Elvis juming out of the popcorn box (great idea, unfortunately idea was presented about 10 hours before delivery!). I think the end result was eye catching!
Then there were costumes - our table decided to go in the Wizard of Oz theme! I was a munchkin and Larry was the scarecrow - a very handsome scarecrow I have to admit! Although he drew the line at getting his face painted! :}
and our table - the Wicked Witch, scarecrow, munchkin, Dorothy and Toto, the Lion, the Tinman, boy munchkin, Glinda the good witch, an elf guard and the Wizard!
Such a fun night and alot of money raised for our school - good news all round!
