Behind the Scenes at Amy Atlas Events – Prepping for Nautical Event

By: Amy Atlas, in Behind The Scenes
I’m back with another behind the scenes at Amy Atlas Events.  If you saw our posts here and here, then you know we have been working on a nautical-inspired dessert table for a special client.  This event took place at the American Yacht Club in Rye, NY.  It could not have been a more beautiful weekend for an event.  The idyllic view of the Long Island Sound filled with yachts set the tone for this…

Behind the Scenes at Amy Atlas Events – Peek into Upcoming Event

By: Amy Atlas, in Behind The Scenes
We’re busy bees at Amy Atlas Events, but I thought I’d share with you a behind the scenes sneak peek of what we’re working on.  We’re crafting away and creating a lot of fun items for a party this weekend.  I also brought in some talented folks to create some items for the event.  Above is a picture of the staff at Baked Ideas creating some specialty fondant pieces for us (excuse the poor phone…

Behind the Scenes at Amy Atlas Events

By: Amy Atlas, in Behind The Scenes
We’re swamped today, but I thought I’d show you a little sneak peek of our day yesterday.  Yesterday was a BUSY day at Amy Atlas Events {who’s kidding…when is it not?}.  First, we had a fun day propping for a special project we worked on.  More to come on that in a few weeks. Then we headed over to the New York Gift Show and I had a chance to meet with some of my…

Behind the Scenes at Amy Atlas Events: Vlog #4 – Making Candy with Papabubble

We recently trekked down to Little Italy to visit one of my favorite candy shops in NYC called Papabubble. We had a chance to make some candy with owners Chris Grassi and Fiona Ryan {scroll down below to see vlog}.  Papabubble is a vendor of mine and we’ve worked together several times to create gorgeous candy for my dessert bars. This is not just a candy store…Chris and Fiona are serious candy artists!  Below is…

Back to the Basics: Baking

By: Amy Atlas, in Behind The Scenes
Many people get confused about whether I’m a caterer/baker or a stylist/event planner. I’m really a home baker, but a stylist for my event business. When I first started creating my dessert tables as a hobby at my own parties, I was baking, crafting, sourcing the props, and putting it all together the day of. My friends out there reading this will remember it well because I’d ask them to help out. Well, maybe I…

Our First Vlog!

By: Amy Atlas, in Behind The Scenes, Videos
{Scroll down to see video} I’m back today with our first vlog ever! Okay, a few things to keep in mind before we start… #1 – We’re not production people so this is not our expertise so bear with us as we show you behind-the-scenes vlogs! Yes, the sound wasn’t great at points, but we’ll master that soon enough. #2 – This was taken while propping around yesterday. We did this completely on a whim…

Behind the Scenes at Amy Atlas Events on Martha Radio

By: Amy Atlas, in Amy's Latest, Behind The Scenes
I’m back with some behind-the-scenes at Amy Atlas Events. This morning, I had the chance to talk about throwing an ice cream party on Martha Stewart Radio. Last time I was on Martha Radio, it was a blizzard in NYC on Valentine’s Day and we were talking about chocolate hot cocoa. Today was all about ice cream. I know some of you are ice cream-ed out with our InStyle story and the toppings bar for…

Behind the Scenes at Amy Atlas Events – The Design Phase

By: Amy Atlas, in Behind The Scenes
Today we’re working on the design for a special client. I thought I’d share some behind-the-scenes with you on how we start our process. When we start designing, our first step is to speak with the client about general aesthetic. Then we start our design process by studying our pantone books to nail the colors right for the design. We then build an inspiration board for the event and then we start to build the…

Behind the Scenes at Amy Atlas Events with InStyle Magazine

By: Amy Atlas, in Behind The Scenes
This week seems to be the Magazine behind the scenes week, doesn’t it? Yesterday I took you behind-the-scenes with The Knot Magazine and today I’m here with a behind-the-scenes of our InStyle Magazine shoot. A couple of months ago, I had the pleasure of working with the editors at InStyle on a fabulous ice cream story. InStyle Magazine (who doesn’t love it?) + ice cream! Can this be a girl’s dream? Well, the editors sent…

I’m here today with another behind-the-scenes at Amy Atlas Events. Today we had a shoot with The Knot for their magazine issue next year. We took a lot of sneak peek photos, but I can only share a few for now since the story isn’t out yet. I’ll share the rest of the photos when the issue hits the stands next year.

Behind the Scenes at Amy Atlas Events

By: Amy Atlas, in Behind The Scenes
I’m back today with some behind-the-scenes pics of us getting ready for an event. If you were here on Friday, then you saw us propping around Manhattan for some last minute items we needed for our party. We picked up some great cupcake wrappers, ribbon, and paper for the event. Tomorrow I’ll be back with pictures of the finished product {from the very talented William Brinson}. If you want to see a sneak peek of…

Behind the Scenes at Amy Atlas Events

By: Amy Atlas, in Behind The Scenes
I’m back with a behind-the-scenes peek at Amy Atlas Events. We’re getting ready for a few projects and I thought I’d give you a glimpse into our world again. I know I have not shown as many behind the scenes lately. I will do my best to bring more behind-the-scenes posts to you, I promise! We’ve been working on some projects that I can’t quite reveal yet so it has been hard to share behind-the-scenes…

On the Road with Amy Atlas Events

By: Amy Atlas, in Behind The Scenes
We just came back from an amazing event in Carmel Valley and I’m here today to show you some behind the scenes pictures from our sweet journey. Out of respect for the client, I am not showing event decor details of the wedding or the dessert table, but I know you all love the behind the scenes shots. Being on this trip was somewhat like a reality show. I was there with Lisa, Eric and…

Behind the Scenes – Constructing a Dessert Table

By: Amy Atlas, in Behind The Scenes
Last week, I showed a little glimpse of a table we were working on for one of my clients. The event was for a young girl’s Bat Mitzvah and the event decor for her party included a zebra pattern and bright citrus colors. We incorporated the pattern and colors from the event decor into the dessert bar. I’m back today to show you some more behind the scenes shots of what goes into installing a…
