Falling for Autumn Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
We hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We had a wonderful time with our families and we’re already counting down the days until Thanksgiving next year. Even though we started sharing winter inspiration, we’re still not quite over the fall. We think this fall dessert table from Marie at Sweets Indeed is perfect to bookmark for next Thanksgiving. We LOVE how Marie used baking tins as vessels for the desserts.  Clever, right?  We also…

Can you believe that we’re already talking about Thanksgiving? We love the Thanksgiving tabletop ideas for the kids table in this “Eat, Drink & Be Thankful” shoot sent to us by Deanna from Mirabelle Creations. Deanna placed simple kraft paper over her linen on the kids table and then bordered the paper with orange polka dot ribbon.

Behind the Scenes: Crafting with Michaels on Anderson

A little about the segment…I’m sure many of you know, but Anderson Cooper has a new daytime talk show and it is fabulous. Anderson had a Thanksgiving special…

Fall Feast Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
This fall feast was sent to us by Cris from Crissy Crafts. She threw a small Thanksgiving get together for her children and their friends. In Chris’ native Brazil, corn is a big part of celebrations. To embrace her heritage, “corn” was part of many of the sweets and decorations. Corn husks were used to dress up the water bottles and as a vessel to serve the food. Sweet treats included caramel and kernel popcorn,…

Amy of Sugar Chic Designs created this dashing “Monsieur” dessert table for a stylish gentleman’s birthday party. She gave the display a masculine feel by incorporating deep colors and elements from nature, such as the animal hide runner, succulent plants and the birchbark containers. This table could easily be translated for a Fall party by bringing in acorn cookies, pumpkin flavored desserts and pies.  The hexagonal chandelier hanging above the table compliments the masculine theme,…

Time stands still on Thanksgiving weekend and my family and I eat, talk, eat, talk, and eat and talk some more well into the night! For me, the holiday evokes memories of marshmallows bubbling on sweet potatoes, my mom’s amazing…
