you’ll BEE in love ~ Sweet Designs

I received an advanced copy of Amy Atlas’ new book Sweet Designs a week or so ago. I knew it was going to be wonderful as Amy is a true creative soul, and I wasn’t disappointed. It’s full of lovely photography, crafting ideas, baking tips, styling inspiration and much more.

I’m honestly impressed with the organization and the amount of DIY detail. I’m a DIY girl. Don’t just show me a pretty picture. I want to know how to recreate it. And Amy does just that! Each chapter includes:

  • Bake It: Recipes for making cakes, cookies, pies, mousse, truffles, popsicles, ice cream bars, drinks, and more.
  • Craft It: Instructions and directions for templates to create her signature popcorn cups, candy bar wrappers, paper pinwheels and more.
  • Style It: Designer secrets for arranging sweets, choosing patterns, mixing textures and colors.
  • Shop It: Pick up sweets from the corner store to pair with home-baked desserts.
  • Display It: Serving vessels and display touches to create the whole dessert table or make a single treat stand out.
  • Switch It: Creative ways to swap the desserts, colors, or platters to better suit your needs.

I’m just in love with the honeycomb backdrop for her Honey, I Love You dessert table. It’s adorable and totally doable! You’ll be amazed how simple it is to make and she reveals all the DIY steps right in her “craft it” section.

Oh, and take these little bumble bee favor bags. Yet another, simple and creative idea that will have your guests buzzing!

You can find Amy’s book (352 pages with over 270 never before seen images) in stores tomorrow, April 24th, in the cookbook section and on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. And you can read some of Amy’s two-year behind the scenes journey on her blog, Sweet Designs

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake and create!

dark chocolate coconut banana bites

I whipped these dark chocolate coconut banana pudding bites up for my latest post with Kellogg’s Snackpicks.com. And let me tell you, it all sounded yummy in my head and then I made it. Oh my!

This might be the best “sophisticated” dessert I’ve ever created. You did know that putting any dessert in a small tasting glass makes it sophisticated, right? Just wanted to make sure. {wink}

This super simple recipe highlights the new Keebler Chips Deluxe Dark Chocolate Chunk cookie. {YUM!}

And it would be perfect for a bumble bee baby shower or bridal shower (see my full printable party collection), or any kind of tasting party for that matter.

I promise… you won’t be disappointed! It is so delish! You can hop over to Kellogg’s Snackpicks.com for the recipe and how tos. As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake and create!

easy felt butterfly craft

Get your kiddos in the spirit of spring with this easy butterfly craft idea. It’s a result of my oldest son playing around with some of the felt, yarn and other goodies left behind after a few Easter ideas we whipped up. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Felt
  • Yarn
  • Straw
  • Lemonhead candy
  • Craft glue

And here are the simple steps:

  1. Trim out the wings (we chose two colors) and glue them together in the center
  2. Cut a straw to lenth, wrap it with yarn and secure the yarn to the straw with a touch of glue
  3. Attach the body of the butterfly and the head (a Lemonhead candy) with another dolup of glue

Happy Monday and as always, I hope you’re inspired!

Leoni of Just Call Me Martha posted a sweet note on my facebook page a few weeks ago and with a blog name like that I of course had to take a look.

Using a template from Torie Jayne’s blog she created six little treat boxes for her niece Jasmine’s birdy birthday party.

Make sure you hop over to Just Call Me Martha for all the how to details and to see more of the beautiful bird inspired party Leoni hosted for her niece! {Thanks Leoni for letting me share!}

customer: my little honey

customer-jamie-my-little-honey2

Before I share this lovely party, I wanted to say that I’m back from Disney (had a blast with the kids; I’ll be sharing more about our adventures shortly) and even though it was a quick trip, I’m refreshed. It’s such a creative place and it was so relaxing that I have a ton of ideas to get working on. Also, thank you to the wonderful ladies that blogged for me while I was away! If you missed them, check out their posts: pumpkin art, autumn pasta party and easy Halloween candy apples.

Back to the party! A few months ago we participated in a mom blogger project with Mom magazine. Jamie from Pure Joy was one of the mom bloggers that we met and I have to say, she’s got a ton of energy! She’s a photographer, blogger and of course a mommy. Oh, and did I mention that she’s VERY pregnant, like any day now pregnant. In the midst of all the million things she has going on, she still managed to pull together a beautiful party for her little honey’s fourth birthday using our Buzz collection printables… by the way, she made the birthday outfit too!

customer: buzz-worthy

the-celebration-shoppe-customer-teenas-chic-bee-birthday

I absolutely love seeing pictures from our very talented customers. The pictures above were sent in from Teena. She hosted a “Chic Bee themed 1st Birthday Party” for her little girl using our Buzz collection. Don’t you just love that cake!

the-celebration-shoppe-customer-teenas-chic-bee-birthday2

And I’m always amazed at how our printables are further embellished to fit the occasion. In this picture you can see how Teena overprinted text, “I got buzzed at Hanna Bee’s 1st Birthday,” onto the design. Just lovely!

Thanks so much for sharing Teena!

introducing ladybug

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-collection1

This collection has been in the back of my mind for months. I knew I wanted to create a ladybug collection, but I didn’t want to use only the traditional red and black color palette. Then when we started creating the new “little sailor” collection, I knew that adding this beautiful Tiffany blue was the answer I was looking for. 

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-candy-labels

As with all of our new collections, we created candy buffet labels. There are eight pre-filled labels (rock candy, licorice, cookies, lollipops, fruit chews, chocolate candies, gumballs and salt water taffy) and there is a sheet of blank labels so you can print (print the label and then overprint the candy name) any candies you like.

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-placecard

The blank labels are also darling as placecards.

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-favor-tag

For favors, this collection offers a “thank you” tag (tin buckets found at Target for a $1.00!),

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-cello

and a cello topper. These are wonderful for pre-packaging candy or cookie favors.

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-beverage-wrapper

As for beverages, we designed a bottle wrap. We show it here with water, but these also look great on old fashioned soda bottles or on hurricanes to dress up your centerpieces.

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-straw-slips

And straw slips (six designs in all) are a must so there is no drink confusion, especially with little ones. 

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-napkin-rings

And what would your placesetting be without an adorable napkin ring? Oh, and see the tag on the pail? That is the cupcake pick.

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-straw-display

I also used it to embellish my straw vase. There is just a multitude of ways you can use all of these printables.

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-cupcake-set

And I had to show you this image of the cupcake picks and wrappers once more. You’ll notice that I used a circle punch and then overlayed the same design on top with a scallop punch (foam adhesive square in the middle to give it dimension; all easy finds at the craft store), but I wanted you to focus in on the cake plate. Do you see the paper inset? It’s the same design as the wrapper, but in blue. These 7×11 sheets (in blue with red and in red with blue) will be available when you purchase the entire collection to help you “complete” the look of your table. 

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-banner

Last but not least, you’ll need a banner to hang above your dessert bar. This image actually only shows four of the eight patterns available in the printable. And if you’re looking for a shortcut on the banner, use hot glue (my favorite crafting tool) to adhere the cardstock triangles to your ribbon and you’re done!

This collection will be in the shoppe within a few days and as always, I hope we’ve helped inspire your next celebration!
