By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
Are you all ready for a rockabilly party?  Gillian of Crumbs of Comfort Cake Design styled this fun themed party for her daughter’s 7th birthday.

Strong Man Carnival Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
This party was styled by Whitney from Bon Fortune for two special boys. The little brother has overcome a neurological speech disorder called Apraxia. For this joint birthday party, the family decided to give back to the speech center that helped him instead of accepting gifts. We love how the theme of the party was a “Strong Man” themed carnival party to celebrate the strength of the boys. Sweet treats on the dessert table included…

Each guest received a brown bagged lunch of a croissant sandwich, salad in a container, a cup of fruit, and alphabet cookies.

Vintage Baseball Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
Jennifer of BellaGrey Designs styled this vintage baseball party for her son’s birthday and we think it is a home run! Jennifer used astro turf and duct tape to turn a simple table into baseball diamond. We love the peanuts in their shells and how she brought in baseball equipment like gloves and balls for decoration. The little sluggers snacked on hot dogs, cotton candy and Cracker Jacks. Jennifer also had candy waxed bottles, pinstriped…

Little Rascals Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
This party was definitely a nod to nostalgia for me. I LOVED the Little Rascals. I remember sitting in my living room and laughing at Stymie, Alfalfa, Spanky and Buckwheat and all of the the trouble they got themselves into. And then there was Darla. How great was Darla? This party was styled by one of our readers, Michelle, for her 4 year old son! Michelle was inspired by the original “Our Gang” of the…

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…

Ice Cream Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
Catherine from Serendipity Soiree styled this vintage firetruck dessert table for her son and husband who have birthdays just three days apart. Since ice cream is a treat that can span the generation gap, Catherine mixed a vintage truck theme with an ice cream float bar for her “men.”  She kept both the party and the dessert table small. You don’t have to create a huge table to make a GIANT statement. We love the  …

Glenda from Dressy Designs sent us this pretty vintage candy buffet that she created for a wedding. Glenda shopped at vintage stores to find props for her client. The table was made by Glenda’s husband out of a door and four legs that they found in the vintage stores. They painted the door blue and then distressed and glazed it.

Whimsical Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
It is rainy in NYC today and this dreamy shoot from Aleishia from Pretty My Love is cheering us up. To create a whimsical feel, Aleishia used a vintage desk for the sweets table and a Pepsi crate for the favors. She filled apothecary jars with candy to give the table a light and airy feel. We love the pretty pink lemonade in the apothecary jar dispenser.  Sweet treats included cake in a jar, coconut…

Vintage Circus Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
We’re not the biggest fans of circus parties, but we think this French vintage take on the traditional circus theme is pretty chic. Michelle from Social Event Planning Co used red and black to show off thick striped and polka dot patterns. Sweet treats included circus staples such as red candy apples, cotton candy and lollipops, as well as donut pops and Bakerella-inspired cake pops. We love the popcorn topiaries and think they were the…
