Superhero Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
We were stoked to see this superhero party from our reader Amra Valentincic of Australia. Amra created this fabulous party for her twin boys 7th birthday party. Amra combined five superheroes, two which were comic style superheroes and three which were modern age superheroes such as The Dark Knight and The Man of Steel. Amra displayed cupcakes and cookies in separate superhero categories. We love the backdrop, the signage, and that SUPER cake! Scroll down…

Using an old garden bench, spray paint and a  piece of MDF board, Belinda created a tool bench to display the sweet treats.

Down Under Dad’s Day Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
Father’s day was celebrated on September 2nd in Australia this year and we received some great Father’s day inspiration from our friends down under.

Free printable beach bag tags found on The House of Smiths were used as food tent cards, cupcake toppers and favors. Sweet and salty treats were combined on one table. For the sweet treats, there was salt…

While mothers are often touted as fashion inspirations, fathers seem to get stuck with the short end of the stick.
