Green Halloween Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
We’re continuing with the Halloween fun with this green and black haunted dessert table by Allison of Wild Rose Sweets and Styling. Since Halloween has origins in the lush green hills of Northern Ireland {see fun fact below}, it makes sense that Allison chose to do a green Halloween! We LOVE the shimmery painted haunted house fondant cake and the printables on the drinks. Other sweet treats on the dessert table included chocolate covered Oreos,…

Halloween Candy Corn Bar

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
Jessica of Party Pants sent over this fun Candy Corn party and we love it. When the little guests arrived, they changed into candy corn striped tutus and embellished their hair with adorable candy corn clips. They then headed over to a candy corn dessert table to fill their trick-or-treat bags. A candy corn cake was the Pièce de résistance and was flanked by apothecary jars with 10 types of candy corn! There were also…

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…

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.…
