Party Like a Rockstar Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
We are going to “Party Like a Rock Star’ with this fun party that was styled by Justine of Sensationally Sweet Events for her son’s birthday. The dark colors and graffiti gave the table an edgy vibe while still maintaining very youthful. Notice how that graffiti backdrop kicks up the dessert table to the next level. Sweet treats on the dessert table included a cake with a white painted microphone, equalizer cookies, layered jelly and…

We are feeling sentimental today because it is our intern Lauren’s last day since she is heading back to college. School is almost in session again so we’re sharing this cool graduation/starting college party styled by Seri & Michelle of Little Miss Party Planner. The graduation party was for a guy who is headed to Emory College, but the design is great for a tennis party or back to school party as well. We love…

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
This school-style party was styled by Jennifer from Sweeten Your Day Events for her friend’s baby shower. Each guest received a brown bagged lunch of a croissant sandwich, salad in a container, a cup of fruit, and alphabet cookies. A dessert table included sweet treats like peanut butter and jelly bars, mini apple pies, cookie and milk parfaits and a naked cake. We love the “#2 is on the way” flags on the #2 pencils!  …

Back To School Guest Dessert Feature

We know that many kids have started school already. Our kids don’t start school until after Labor Day, but this Back to School dessert table really got us geared up for the school year ahead. Dina from Deliciously Darling Events sent us this table that she styled for her kids. We met Dina at our Atlanta Williams Sonoma Book signing and she was just as cute as this table. Dina loved the rice krispie watermelon…

This submission put a big smile on my face. It was sent to us by a reader named Jane and it was executed perfectly. Jane has a clown business in Australia called Home Made Parties so she styled a clown themed party for her daughter’s 9th birthday. Fourteen guests were sent to Clown School where they all received matching book bags complete with their own magic tricks and joke cards. They also decorated their own…

Back to School Roundup Part I – Our Faves

Above:  We loved everything about this table from the chalkboard backdrop and linen, to the school inspired snacks. This party was created by Leoni from Just Call Me Martha for her daughter’s 4th birthday. Yesterday was the last day of camp for my boys.  Whenever camp ends for them, I get a little nostalgic about my kids starting a new year of school.  During the summer, they are completely carefree.  While school is not serious…

School Days Guest “Dessert” Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
How great is this exclusive faux dessert table that was sent to us by the ladies at One Charming Party?  All of the “treats” are school supplies.  Can we say BRILLIANT?  How fantastic is that pencil rubberband cake?   We love the Elmer’s glue dressed up as a beverage, the eraser treats, the composition table surface, and the lunchboxes filled with scissors and highlighters.  This party would be perfect to send your little ones…

Back To School Guest Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
We’re on to our third school related post of the day.  I know that school is starting for some of you in a couple of weeks (for us, not until after Labor Day), so when I saw this I thought it was the perfect time to share. One of the things I love my most about my “job” is that it allows me many opportunities to give back.  I have always been a big…

We can’t get school off of our minds today. Earlier we shared a fun, DIY project that we created for Disney Family Fun while kids are out of school.  Here is our second submission of the day brought to us by Monica of The Creationz Studio.

Back to School

By: Amy Atlas, in Recipes
My older son is starting Kindergarten tomorrow and to say that I am emotional would be an understatement. It seems like just yesterday that we welcomed him into the world, and now he is a confident, smart and sweet boy. We walked by his school today and he said to me “Mom, you don’t have to walk me in tomorrow, the teacher can do that.” Needless to say, there will be many tears tomorrow! As…
