I have missed a dessert trend of epic joy: make-your-own mini push-up pops. I even found the plastic empty pops for 90 cents each online at Garnish.

Are you with me on this one or what? I might even be tempted to have a summer dinner party . . . except not really. This is my summer of slacking chez moi.

Garnish is a new-to-me source for pretty party food containers. These ripple cups would make excellent servers for ice cream, butterscotch pudding, soup, chopped salad, etc. Even hot chocolate in winter. (Ha. Hahahahaha.) 30 cents each.

I like these little plastic cups with trimmed-down striped straws:

Boxes with sweet labels and Sprinkles-style wooden forks attached:

They even sell those famous Barefoot Contessa deli containers.
