If you have a bake sale coming up, you are likely getting more and more excited as the big day approaches. There are many ways you can prep for this event so that everything is in place. If you are the one hosting the bake sale, your responsibilities will be different than if you are a participant. However with these basic tips, you will be well on your way to having everything you need for the big day.
Buy cellophane bags ahead of time
One of the main supplies you will need for your bake sale is a few packages of cellophane bags. These cellophane bags will be used to wrap around your finished baked treats to make certain that they are presented well and look their very best. If you want to add some extra flair to your baked treat goodie bag, then you can wrap some curling ribbon around the neck of the back and twirl the scissors along to curl it so that it looks decorative. Once all of your baked treats have been properly wrapped up, make sure to store them in an airtight container so they can keep well for the following day.
Gather tables and supplies
In addition to cellophane bags, you can also gather together tables and supplies such as tablecloths, signs, and centerpieces. If you will be using a cash box to accept money and to make change, then this should be on hand as well. If possible bring at least $20 worth of change in dollars and coins so you can easily make change for your customers when they make a purchase from you. Folding chairs will also be nice so that bake sale workers don’t have to stand on their feet the whole time.
Cellophane bags, tables, table cloths, chairs, cash boxes, and signs should all be gathered together in one area. Make sure that you have all the supplies you need on hand and ready so you can have a fully successful bake sale.
