Amy recently designed a princess party for Brooke Shields and daughter Grier, who celebrated her 4th birthday in style. She sent over these adorable pictures full of inspiration.
From Amy: “Grier is a girly girl and Brooke wanted Grier to feel like a princess at her birthday party. After all, what mom wouldn’t want her daughter to feel like a princess on her special day? We swapped out the typical pink and purple princess party look with a sparkly light pink, rose, and gold color palette. We brought in lots of stars, wands and tiaras into the design. Of course, there had to be a sweets table! However, being that it was a kids party, we made a small dessert table so that the kids weren’t overwhelmed with too many sweets. Included on the table were princess cupcakes, cookies, and some candy for the kids and adults. The little princess and her pals were twirling their wands and dancing throughout the party to princess music. It was really cute!”
The details are adorable! Amy Atlas never fails to impress.

Today’s post is dedicated to one of my favorite entertaining/decorating details: cupcake toppers. As our April showers turn into May flowers, now is the perfect time to incorporate delicate handmade flower cupcake toppers for desserts, cheese trays, as drink stirrers or as substitute place cards peeking out from a rolled napkin.
Here’s a bit of inspiration from Etsy artist Millalove and Glorious Treats. I’m imagining the perfect way to recreate each of these with scrapbooking paper and toothpicks…
Beyond the jump is a deliciously edible candied sugar version of flower cupcake toppers as well as a DIY coloring project with excellent results. Happy Friday! Continue reading →
