Sunflower Soiree – Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions

After the rainy weekend we had in New York City, we were so happy to see this little ray of sunshine we received from Kelly Lyden of WH Hostess. Yesterday, we featured this dinosaur party that Kelly and Joanna collaborated on for Joanna’s son’s birthday.  This table was created by Kelly for her mother’s 60th birthday.  Celebrating her mother and the last bit of summer that was left, Kelly chose a crisp yellow and black color palette. With that palette, you can’t go wrong with sunflowers. Guests received a black box with chocolate covered sunflower seeds and a custom invitation that she created. Sweet treats on the dessert table included cake pops by Flour & Iced, sunny sugar cookies that incorporated both the sunflower and all of the coordinating patterns, chocolate cakes topped with fondant flowers, and color coordinated candy.  Allyson Jane created the hand-iced sunflower cookies, as well as the “60” cookies (she also created the cookies for this fab party).  Guests were sent home with a striped take out food box filled with sweets. This table can brighten anyone’s day.
