starts tomorrow!!! After taking a year off (which, frankly, was a good thing for my pocketbook since we never manage to emerge from there spending under $50), the big white tents are pitched again.
If you need any cake decorating supplies (including this really cool spray-on food coloring that is great for backgrounds on cakes when you're doing something like water or grass), it's the place to go. I don't think I ever see any real sales on Wilton in the stores, so the discounts at their tent sale are unbeatable. Of course, it helps if you live in the Chicago metropolitan area. Wilton is located in Woodridge on 75th at I-355.
We'll have our tribe traipsing through there in the next couple of days. I'm not sure that we actually need anything, but it's such an incredible kitchen smorgasbord that it's hard to stay away. A Musing Dad is just as big a fan of the tent sale as I am (maybe even more).
Now that I think about it, I just might pick up one of those cool cupcake trees. Or maybe a portable container for cupcakes. And then if I get one, I'll have to whip up a batch of Magnolia's goodies...
Note on Tent Sale dates & hours: Runs May 29 to June 16. Hours are 4:30pm-8pm on the 29th, then Saturdays and Sundays 8am - 6pm and Mondays through Fridays 9am - 8pm.
