I threw this table together this morning with mismatched china I got at goodwill a while back, pink heart cookie cutters to add to the romance, and a few other vintage items I already had like old books and an old camera.

I also put these pastries together last night and froze them.  Then just popped them in the oven this morning.  Easy peasy.
