Laduree Inspired Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
Laduree recently opened in New York City. There are always lines out the door and if you have ever eaten one of their tasty treats, you would understand why. This Laduree-inspired photo shoot was sent to us by Azar from Principal Planner. To pay homage to the mecca of  macarons, they tied in elements of the luxury brand by bringing in look-alike cookies, pastries, and of course, macarons. We love the gilded frames against the…

Linen & Lace Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
We received this beautiful Linen & Lace dessert table from Alexandra at Avie & Lulu. There are so many pretty and feminine features in this table.  We love the heart shaped cookies and the baskets that are reminiscent of bird nests. The mood and tone of the party was inspired by the beautiful invites Alexandra found from Little Paper Pantry.  The highlight of the day was a giveaway teapot gift in the “Guess How Many…

Whimsical Tea Party Guest Dessert Feature

We are loving this whimsical tea birthday party that was sent to us by Rachel of Rachel Richter Photography for a special four year old. We love the cherry blossom theme and the soft color palette. Isn’t that location breathtaking? Sweet treats included cupcakes, home baked gingerbread men, fresh strawberries and fairy bread. After the guests enjoyed their tea and treats, they flew around the forest sprinkling fairy dust everywhere. We think this is so…

Warning….this post may start the waterworks.  Natalie from Half Dozen Designs sent us these photos of a table she created in memory of a little girl named Ava. Natalie somehow stumbled upon the website Ava’s Tea Party and felt compelled to do something. Ava was a little 3 year old princess who tragically died way too soon.  You can read her story here...but again…warning…get the tissues.  Ava and her mother always talked about having…

Tea Party Guest Dessert Feature

I love this pretty tea party guest dessert feature for a baby shower from Effi and Anna of Le Petit Party. Effi and Anna incorporated a shabby chic floral fabric, and used it to create ruffled flowers for the invitations, the jam jar and goody bag covers, and the tulle canopy that hung over the client’s heirloom crib {pretty unique, right?}  The sweet treats included that pretty buttercream cake {I love the technique that they…

Alice in Wonderland Guest Dessert Feature

I’m back with my 3rd guest feature of the day!  This one comes from Kasey Buick, who created a beautiful Alice in Wonderful dessert spread for her daughter’s 8th birthday. I get A LOT of Alice in Wonderland submissions, but this one stood out from the rest.  I love the layered vintage lace linens, the gorgeous chandelier and props, and the “eat me” printed bags.  The paper flower and butterfly garland, birdcage backdrop, and wonderland…
