Madeline Parisian Birthday Party

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
We love the story Madeline and this Madeline party by Kirstin at Kojo Designs is fantastique! The party was for Kirstin’s daughter’s birthday party. How sweet is her daughter dressed as Madeline? Scroll down to the bottom to see. We adore the cleverly designed favor display which mimicked Madeline’s dress. Other great details are the signage, french postcards on an oversized framed backdrop, and mini paper Madelines and Eiffel Towers on globes by a Madeline…

A Visit with Maison Kayser {& Eclair Vlog/Recipe for National Eclair Day!}

We were thrilled this week to get an exclusive peek into the kitchen of Maison Kayser in Manhattan. Parisian baker Eric Kayser already had 80 locations around the globe, but it wasn’t until last year that he decided to open up his first bakery in America. Lucky for us, he picked a location on the Upper East Side, just a block away from our studio. Since then, we’ve been spoiled with Parisian breads, financiers, and…

The girls wanted to go to Paris and since they couldn’t make that happen, Sarah brought Paris to them!  The girls love the Eiffel tower and they have…

Sweet treats on the dessert table included mini lemon curd meringues tarts, golden caramel macarons, brownie pops with golden edible glitter, and coconut chocolate…

Amy Atlas Moment: French themed baby shower

When Grace from Grace Happens shared with us her “Amy Atlas Moment”, we fell head over heals EN AMOUR.

Happy Bastille Day & Sweet Origins: Macarons!

By: Amy Atlas, in Sweet Origins
Happy Bastille Day! Today is French National Day, a commemoration of the storming of the Bastille in 1789. Festivities include fireworks over the Eiffel Tower, a parade down the Champs Elysees and a picnic of 10,000 people dressed in white at Versailles. We say, where there’s a party in France, there must be the beloved macaron! In this “Sweet Origins,” we explore the history of France’s favorite dessert. Macarons are delicate round cookies made with…
