Moroccan Inspired Deliciousness

Here are some more photos of Amy's dessert table that I created patterns for! As you know, so many lovely and talented women worked together on this and Amy has a great breakdown of all of our contributions on her blog!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I promise to resume blogging more soon! Motherhood - which btw is amazing, running a business & designing, and enjoying summer with the family has taken over almost all of my time!!

Sunday Suppers !!!

The last couple of weeks I have had the amazing opportunity to collaborate with Sunday Suppers, the brainchild of the amazing and talented photographer Karen Mordechai & chef extraordinaire Casey Solomon. Along with designing the menus & other paper bits for Sunday Suppers (photos to follow) I was given the incredible opportunity to design some patterns for the brilliant Amy Atlas. The theme of the supper was Moroccan so we incorporated that same theme into Amy's dessert table. I designed the patterned backdrop as well some of the other paper elements on the table, which you will soon see. Amy had such a beautiful & clear vision that working with her was a dream. All of the details Amy envisions for her tables are so thoughtfully arranged & put together that her work is not only visually delicious but tasty too! Which leads me to Aran Goyoaga of the famed Cannelle et Vanille. Aran's desserts, if you can imagine, taste as delicious as they look. Which is hard to believe because everything she does looks and is a piece of art! The beautiful center cake was by Love Street Cakes, which was the perfect centerpiece. And last but not least the gorgeous flower treatments were by the lovely and talented Jessie from Rountree. Wait until you see her flowers on the dinner table !!! More pics to come throughout the next couple of days!

The dessert table truly was visually and tastefully delicious! And if you live in NYC or nearby - you should definitely attend one these Sunday Suppers, they are so much fun!

Sparkle Power

On Saturday we went to a 3 yr. olds birthday party and there was a sweet choo choo train theme and a pinata! I was thinking how cool would it be to have a pinata at one of our birthday parties? I have a feeling all of the adults would get pretty excited over one and I think that these pinatas from Confetti System would be not only awesome but gorgeous too! They would also be great at a casual outdoor wedding reception - I think all of the kids would be pretty stoked to get some pinata time at a wedding reception!
