There is a great reason why I am not trying to make my living off making party craft/decoration items anymore, and yesterday I was reminded of why.
Let’s face it people. Wal-Mart has me beat.
For less than $6 I was able to purchase a fair amount of absolutely adorable napkins, cupcake papers and party picks (from Wilton.)
Who can compete with that?
You should have seen the adorable banners they had for $3-$5. I mean seriously.
For the record, I do not begrudge them at all. And I happily bought their picks and napkin.
I will pair them with homemade banners and other vintage and thrifted/restored decorations, and put together a ghoulish table setting even a time-stressed-Mummy could love, and on a budget The FEP can afford.
And right now, that is worth the trade.
Of course if Wilton wants to hire me to design cupcake picks, well that would be a whole ‘nother story…
