Alice in Wonderland Guest Dessert Feature

I’m back with my 3rd guest feature of the day!  This one comes from Kasey Buick, who created a beautiful Alice in Wonderful dessert spread for her daughter’s 8th birthday. I get A LOT of Alice in Wonderland submissions, but this one stood out from the rest.  I love the layered vintage lace linens, the gorgeous chandelier and props, and the “eat me” printed bags.  The paper flower and butterfly garland, birdcage backdrop, and wonderland…

Bee Inspired Guest Dessert Feature

I’m back with the second guest dessert table feature of the day!  Mary of Very Merry Events in California sent me pictures of a bee inspired dessert bar that she created for her very own little honey’s baptism. There are so many cute details about this dessert bar..where do I start?  I think I would dive into this hive dessert bar if I was there.  I’m loving the use of craspedias, sunflowers, and large yellow…

More S’mores

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
I know, I know…I already posted about s’mores yesterday, right? But just because it is no longer National S’mores Day doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy this fave treat. I received so many emails about s’mores ideas after yesterday’s post that I thought the s’mores party should continue {at least on this blog!}  Lisa of Moore Minutes sent over a s’mores bar and I had to share. See s’more {I had to} ideas at the…

National S’mores Day

By: Amy Atlas, in Recipes, Sweet Styling Tricks
I’ve been nibbling on graham crackers all morning. So it was no surprise to me when I saw a tweet from my blogging friend Thoughtfully Simple that today is National S’mores Day! Yes, I had it on my calendar and yes we just did a s’mores dessert bar for a client {sorry I can’t share that one}, but somehow I forgot it this morning. I guess it was a subliminal message when I felt myself…

I think I feel pretty close with all of you readers at this point. Do you feel the same way? I take the time to share lots of tips with you and I’m wondering if I can now ask a favor of all of you?
