Nature Lover Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
We are loving this garden party styled by Kris from K & S Styled Events for her nature loving niece’s 7th birthday.

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
This “Around the Atlas” was sent to us by Intan from Dreamflavours Celebrations in Jakarta, Indonesia. She created this beautiful table for a little girl’s birthday party.

Garden Party Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
This Garden Party dessert table was sent to us by Louisa Shippman of Lou Lou Events down under.  Louisa created this table for a 50th birthday party.  We love how the trunk of that beautiful old tree framed the dessert table.  Louisa handpicked rustic desserts like honey spiced sponge, dusted truffles, and cannolis from local vendors and found lush hydrangea to complement the outdoor space.  Adding a few hydrangea to the top of the sponge…
