I solemnly swear that I’m not trying to totally kill your work out routine with the constant photos of dessert and heavenly sugar covered things this week.

I’m just really excited to share the goodies we used to make our dessert table come to life.

Luckily, I know some really talented people.

And by know, I actually mean that I stalk them on Instagram and then try to convince them to hangout with me.

These things happen to the best of us you know…

One of those people just so happens to be Lisa Chow, the mastermind behind all things pretty, illustrated, and in this case, watercolor flags.

I’ll be sharing another project we worked on together soon.

But for now, here are the DIY printable flags we dreamt up for this pastel party…

You can always use fun phrases like “There’s always plenty” like the cupcake up top!

My favorite little shop in OKC, Plenty Mercantile, uses it as their slogan and I’ve been in love ever since.

I really love the way the adhesive dots make the flags pop on the front of cake stands don’t you?

They’re the perfect little size!

If you use any of the flags for you Easter table (or even just for sweet nothings), be sure to tag #mysugarandcloth so I can see what you’re making!
