Every month during the school year, a parent brings treats to the teachers lounge at my daughter’s school to celebrate staff birthdays.
When it was my turn, I decided to go the extra mile and prepare a mini-brunch.
Complete with flowers and decorations.
On the menu was coffee cake (a knock off recipe of Starbucks that I found online), chocolate croissants (similar to these…only I used dark chocolate and sprinkled a bit of sea salt on the egg wash before baking) and Bakerella’s Mini Maple Pancake Muffins –
served with real maple syrup.
Everything was delivered is a large wooden baking crate (similar to a old pop bottle crate, only much larger and without the dividers). The serving dishes are just some pieces of my enamel collection. I used a flower frog to hold the menu. The syrup picture, the vase, and the table cloth were all purchased second-hand.
There were only 2 male staffers (1 teacher and 1 janitor), so I figured flowers were in order.
Everything looked beautiful, tasted great…
and was very much appreciated by the teachers and staff!
