Ready for a little spring eye candy? I almost fell out of my chair when I came across this absolutely adorable ‘recycled chic’ backyard party. I’m loving the idea of a *sweet* celebration for the coming months!
A vintage candy & cakes theme would work just as well for a shower, a wedding or even Easter.
Style Me Pretty shares this lovely photoshoot, complete with colorful poms, a delicious dessert table (make that the most adorable bookshelf you’ve ever seen!) and vintage place settings. I’m head-over-heels in love with every detail.
I can’t decide which perfect little piece of this party I like best. Is it the mis-matched paper prints (on the signs, as drawer liners, the background for the cake table, as place mats…) or the amazing floral designs (did you see that tablescape up top??) or the mouth-watering desserts!
More delicious photos - including the invitations, adorable handmade pillows and petite cakes - after the jump! Read more »

Wendy, from the blog Dozi Design, created this enchanting Woodland Critters baby shower for a friend.
Each piece of the celebration was made by hand – from the beautifully designed invites to the chopped up backyard branches that became place card holders.
Guests were asked to paint themselves on small wooden dolls as future toys for baby Emilia – she’ll forever have close friends to play with!
For the main centerpiece, Wendy decorated a manzanita branch with felt leaves in various shades of green. She and her other party hostesses sewed small birds and foxes, as well as knitted clever fox and raccoon props for the photobooth!
Small muslin drawstring pouches were hand sewn and filled with homemade candied pecans for favors – each received a little squirrel stamp Wendy carved out of an eraser. I’m so impressed with every detail of this shower!

I’ve been so inspired by mini cupcake designs lately. They’re the sweet, petite version of their popular counterpart and are perfect for birthdays, showers & weddings. When Amber Vandervliet and her mobile cupcakery (aka Enjoy Cupcakes) was featured on Style Me Pretty, I just about found a little slice of heaven.
And what gorgeous eye candy? Simple cake stands stacked with assorted yummy bites have never looked so pretty or so darn easy to replicate.
Amber runs her business out of an adorable RV and is based in Southern California. Jose Villa captured this little photoshoot and his pictures are divine!
Can’t wait to include in a baby shower some time in the near the future! More delicious designs (in more ways than one…) and one of Amber’s recipes after the jump! Read more »
