Bubblegum Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Uncategorized
This soda and bubblegum guest feature from Leanne of Mrs. A in the Cove of Australia brings the kid out in me.    It reminds me of Hello Naomi’s table here.  Leanne created the table for her daughter’s birthday party.  The gumball machine cake, soda bottle cookies, and gumball cookies from Blissfully Sweet Cakes are incredible.  Leanne chose the cheery color palette from the “gumball looking” bon bon candy she used on the table.  The table…

Batter Up! Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Uncategorized
Suzanna of Mon Tresor stepped up to the plate with this batter up! baseball guest dessert feature .  I have a family filled with baseball lovers so this kind of party would be a huge score in my home.  Since Suzanna’s son just finished the baseball season in Australia, she chose a baseball theme for his 7th birthday. Suzanna incorporated some fun details like a batter up! baseball score board, green grass for the tabletop…

“Boy or Girl?” Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Uncategorized
I like to think you can always find a good reason to throw a party.  This party idea is so creative, I love it.  I have been hearing a lot recently of couples having “gender reveal” parties. Bettijo and Aimee of PagingSupermom threw a little party to reveal the gender of Bettijo’s unborn baby to her close friends and family.  The ladies used Bettijos cravings as the theme of the dessert table and the color…

Striped Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Uncategorized
We are in the middle of book craziness.  However, I saw these pictures and knew that I had to share them with you. Naomi of Hello Naomi sent us these photos of a table that she created with Nathalie from for Nathalie’s son’s sixth birthday party.  Naomi and Nathalie have a meticulous eye for design and I always get excited when they send over pictures of their parties.  They always capture great photos with…

Fun Fondue Guest Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Uncategorized
Sarah of Lil Hoot sent over this unique fun-tastic feature for fondue {and cow} lovers!  Sarah’s husband Chris made fondue for their first Valentine’s Day and now their lucky friends are invited to an annual fondue party.  Clearly, Sarah and Chris host this every February, but this theme can be for any fondue party throughout the year.  I love the fun-do-mentals sign, the moo cones which held items to dip in the fondue maker, the…

We’re seeing a lot of classic nursery tale themed parties popping up in our inbox lately.  This Goldilocks and The Three Bears party guest feature from Paula of Frog Prince Paperie is “Just Right” as the famous author Robert Southey once wrote.  Guests were invited to the party with a Goldilocks board book and “Bear Mail” bookplate/invitation.  Paula created a bear house vibe for the birthday party.  She used a painted bead board…

Safari Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Uncategorized
This wild animals guest dessert feature from Leanne of Mrs. A in the Cove shows that we all really can create simple and cute boy parties. I always love seeing boy parties executed well since I have two boys of my own.  Leanne’s design is simple, yet really cool for a boy and is perfectly age-appropriate.  The bamboo/thatch backdrop, snake and tiger cupcakes, wild snake juice, and possum tail candy give the table a safari…

Rainbow Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Uncategorized
This rainbow birthday guest dessert feature from Suzi of Alannah Rose is absolutely precious.  You may remember Suzi’s daughter Alannah’s 5th birthday party last year when we featured it here.  Everything about this table brings out my inner six year old child.  When I was younger, I begged my parents for any unicorn and cloud satin mobile I could get my hands on.  There is something about rainbows, unicorns, and clouds that are so dreamy,…

Tea Party Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Uncategorized
I love this pretty tea party guest dessert feature for a baby shower from Effi and Anna of Le Petit Party. Effi and Anna incorporated a shabby chic floral fabric, and used it to create ruffled flowers for the invitations, the jam jar and goody bag covers, and the tulle canopy that hung over the client’s heirloom crib {pretty unique, right?}  The sweet treats included that pretty buttercream cake {I love the technique that they…
