My newest hobby is throwing parties. I’ve been collecting party plates and trays and dishes of all sorts. Some would be in the kitchen, some in the large closet, some in the hutch with our fine china. I couldn’t always find what I was looking for right away, because I had to check so many places to find it. As Hubby and I often do I was daydreaming about our perfect house and features it will have. I told him how I would love to have a pantry, just for my party supplies. To this he replied, ‘why don’t we get you a hutch for your supplies?’ Genius! We don’t have a lot of space where we’re at now, so a hutch would be a great idea. I searched Craigslist and found a hutch that would work great, nice size, good cost and it was only a few blocks away from our place.
In the top part as you can see is where I keep all my dishes, sorted by color. In the drawer I keep my candy/ice molds and sprinkles. In the bottom I store my cake decorating kit and the 20 boxes of cake mix I got on super sale. As well as bags of things I’ve collected for parties. Gumballs for C1’s birthday, I have 5 bags of candy for a “POP” party, all sorts of stuff. I love having it all in one place. Well, that’s not entirely true, I still have some stands and the sodas I bought in the large closet, but most of my party things are all right together. Thanks Hubby, a great solution. Now, I’d like to paint this thing to make it look a little nicer.
