Shabby Chic Breakfast

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
We’re continuing our shabby chic features this week {be sure to check out earlier posts if you have missed} and the next one up is a shabby chic breakfast submitted from Margherita of Le Chat de Sucre in Florence, Italy.   Margherita was inspired by early spring wildflowers, and she included recipes infused with lavender flowers, rose water and essence of violet.  All of the food was prepared following old country recipes. We love the limonata…

Easter Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
This morning we shared this pretty shabby chic table, and since we’ve been getting a ton of shabby chic Easter tables in our inbox, we’re sharing some more.  This one is from Jenny of Jenny Cookies. Jenny’s party setup was initially inside because it was raining, but she quickly moved it outside when it stopped raining.  The table looks great in both settings. Jenny made Easter egg cookies, bunny cookie cupcakes, Easter egg nest treats,…

Vintage Red Wagon Guest Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
Elissa from One Stone Events sent over a vintage red wagon guest dessert feature packed with fun details.  My kids had red radio flyer wagons when they were younger and I have fond memories of wheeling them around so this table caught me eye.  I love the red wagon cupcake wrappers, cookies, old fashion apple pies, retro red drinks, and red wagon goody bags.  I’ll bet the birthday boy had the ride of his life…

Sweet 16 Guest Dessert Table

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
So Thanksgiving is over and I thought I’d give you all some pretty pictures before we swing back into holiday mode.  Isn’t this guest feature from Jessica of Where My Heart Is from Brisbane darling?  This party was for Jessica’s daughter Paris’s sweet 16.  The tabletop and dessert table are so simple yet so lovely.  It has an anthropologie vibe.  Jessica balanced out both tables very well with a clean white background and small pops…

Vintage Party Printables

By: Amy Atlas, in DIY and Templates
I’m loving the designs and color palettes on these printables from Vesna of My Little Jedi.  The vintage party packs come with an invitation, Happy Birthday banner, cupcake toppers, food/candy jar labels, party favor bags, water bottle labels, cupcake wrappers, and party hats.  Vesna designed these for kid parties, but I think many of the items in this collection can translate for an adult party as well.  Check out more of Vesna’s beautiful work here.…
