It’s All About the Sweets!

By: Amy Atlas, in Behind The Scenes

After a few years of pondering whether to leave the field of law, I finally decided to listen to family and friends and tap into my creative side by starting an event planning company. Since I have always had a sweet tooth and love to come up with unique ways to bring the “wow factor” to a party through desserts, I am specializing in high-end dessert bars. After all, who doesn’t like desserts? Through word of mouth, the business is growing faster than I would have ever expected! This blog not only showcases some of my recent sweet tables, but is meant to inspire others to come up with sweet ideas as well! I hope you enjoy looking at the sweets!

    Oh, How I wish I could start up a business such as this. I have a passion for this type of thing but where I live there really doesn’t seem to be a demand for it. I would love to hear about your journey of running your own business and the steps you took to get where you are. Have a nice day! Daisy~
