I’m so excited about a candy buffet I just finished designing that I thought I’d post a quick sneak peak! All of the pictures with complete How-Tos will be up next week — but here’s a sample of the fun I had!
I mentioned earlier that two friends of ours are hosting a second reception in our local San Diego for guests that couldn’t travel out to the Michigan wedding. The candy buffet will serve as the dessert station for the evening instead of another formal cake — and because the celebration is centered around lawn games and other fun activities, the dessert bar had to be cheerful and bright, too!
Since summer is officially over, and the cool winds of fall are beginning to sneak their way in, blend the changing seasons into one finger-licking, summer-meets-fall dessert to enjoy. These ice cream cookie sandwiches are adorably cute and so delicious! I’m just thinking of all of the wonderful themes you could fit this idea into — nevermind the option of using a different cookie cutter.Thanks, Martha Stewart Living, for all of your clever ideas… and for showing us how to make these delicious bikini babes!
Ice Cream (summer) + Gingerbread (fall) = Year Round LOVE.
I’m so excited for this Friday’s Guest Blog… Amy, founder of Stem Parties, is incredibly inspirational and has the biggest HEART of all. Her ideas and parties are clever & creative in that perfect DIY fashion! And her role as the Chief Event Organizer for Operation Shower deserves all of the accolades I can offer. This exceptional organization honors the sacrifices military families make by producing and coordinating unit-wide baby showers and “showers in a box” for pregnant or expecting military families in a deployment or high stress situation.
Stem Parties, a boutique event planning service in St. Louis, Missouri, originated from Amy’s love of party styling and entertaining and has transformed into a fabulous blog as well. A quick jump over proves that this designer was born to throw parties — peruse her recent events and you’ll see immediately how easy and effortlessly she pulls off incredible events! It’ll get the wheels upstairs turning!
