Great Finds: Elegant Easter

By: Amy Atlas, in Great Finds
Easter is almost here and we have some great ideas on how to throw an elegant Easter soiree. We love the idea of using soft colors on the table and complementing it with bold colors with what you wear. How great are those bangles? How are you guys spending your holiday?  Do you have any Easter or Passover traditions? Any favorite recipes?  We would love to know. PS – We are halfway through our trip…

Up In The Air Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
How awesome is this airplane party styled by Karolina from Karo’s Fun Land for her son’s birthday party? We think the design works for both adult and kid parties. We love how she mixed diagonal, vertical and horizontal stripes. Her use of different stripes plus other patterns like chevron and dots works here because she also brought in a lot of white to give the eyes a little rest from the much pattern.This is a…

“Round” Of Golf Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
We’re seeing lots of people incorporating geometric shapes into their dessert tables and parties. Suzanna at Mon Tresor combined color and shapes to create a hole in one for this golf party! The mint, yellow and black palette is gender neutral and we love it!  I spoke a lot on the book tour about not only using color to inspire a table, but using shapes as well. You can see that the round shape was…

Colorful Chevron Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
Flavia from fete-a-fete created this colorful chevron patterned dessert table for her son’s first birthday. The theme was “Time Flies” playing with the numbers 1 through 12 representing her son’s age in months. Clocks were made a focal point on the wall and the chevron pattern created a happy atmosphere. We love the DIY crafts on the table from the balloon wreath to the food card holders. Our readers often ask about styling food and…

Chevron Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
Chevron pattern was a big trend this year. So much so, that is one of the elements on the cover of my book. This party was sent to us by Helen from Kiss My Cakes in Australia. She styled this party for a little boy’s first birthday. We love the color palette. One of my sweet styling tips is to limit colors on the table to three or four (at most). Helen used four, but…
