Spooky & Sparkly Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
We love this spooky sparkly Halloween party that was sent to us by Ashley from Eye Candy Event Design.  The purple and orange palette has become very popular for Halloween and it definitely works for this table. Sweet treats included cupcakes, two-toned macarons and ghost peeps. Popcorn boxes are the perfect way to house sweets that aren’t “candy”. The guests washed down their sweets with Genuine Elixir cocktails. For another glittery and colorful Halloween party,…

Halloweekend Countdown: Thriller of a Party

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
Halloweekend post number two is a “Thriller”.  This submission was sent to us by Jenny from Bloom Designs. She created this glam Halloween party for her daughter’s 10th birthday. Jenny wanted to incorporate her daughter’s love of dance without making her party feel too theme-y.  Who better to find inspiration from than the King of Pop? She decided on an apple green and rosey pink color scheme. We love the wreath that she made from…

Halloweekend Countdown: Horror Movie Madness

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
One of my earliest memories ever is the first time I saw a horror movie. Well, it was just a preview of a horror movie, but it was enough to get me scared out of my skull.  I was about 4 years old and ready to watch a more kid-appropriate movie with my parents and brother when a preview for King Kong came on.  I can remember yelling so loud that my dad had to…

Sweet treats included linzer cookies, cupcakes, white chocolate covered oreos and cake pops. If you like the printables that Jess used, she is offering them for free on her website.…

Katie used dark blues, yellows and greys to give the table a vintage feel. To make the table spooky, creepy elements like owls, spiders, rats, cauldrons, and test tubes were used. Wizardly treats included items like wizard’s teeth, magical wands cauldron…

Halloweekend Countdown: Counting Crows

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
Nicolle from Libby Lane Press sent us this Birds of Feather shoot that she styled to showcase her new printables line and we loved the unique twist on a halloween theme. Those little crows look so ominous, we love it. Nicolle’s inspiration came from feather trees that she found at Home Goods.

Halloweekend Countdown: Haute Halloween Guest Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
In continuation of our Halloweekend inspiration, we are featuring this “haute” dessert table from Stefanie at anna and blue paperie. Not wanting to stick with the traditional orange and black color palette, Stefanie went glam using purple, white and black. We love non-traditional color palettes. Her inspiration came from that beautiful candelabra that she found at Michaels. What a perfect vessel to display her cupcakes! Using the candelabra along with pieces she found in her…

Halloweekend Countdown Inspiration

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
There’s nothing like the chill of autumn air, except maybe the chill of Halloween. This dessert table created for M Magazine was sent to us by Karla Randolph of The Card Lady. The table, or gothic styled mantel we should say, features classic candy pumpkins, candy corn and jelly beans from Powell’s Sweet Shoppe. But for a real spook, witch fingers and skeleton cookies from Cookie Xchange adorned the setting. The table was softened with…

Halloween Friday

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
It is hard to believe that Halloween is only 6 weeks away. It has always been one of my favorite holidays, and I love it even more now that I have kids. My boys and I snuggle in bed and go through countless ideas of what we are all going to be. There is something about dressing up and being somebody else for the day (or hour) that makes you feel like a kid again.…
