Bridal Shower Cupcakes

This past Saturday my four bridesmaids threw me the most adorable bridal shower. The theme was sunflowers and bees and they had so many cute details.

Today, I just want to focus on the delicious cupcakes my sister’s coworker Sarah made. Her company is Wicked Smart Cakes, based out of Northbridge, Mass.  There were two flavors – chocolate with peanut butter frosting and vanilla vanilla. The chocolate peanut butter ones were rich and delicious I was so bummed I only got to eat one! The vanilla cake and vanilla frosting combo were tasty and perfectly adorned with the cutest little bees!

Of course, no cupcake is complete without a great display. My bridesmaids finished off the look with big, beautiful sunflowers, assorted stands and some woven mats for texture.

What’s the tastiest cupcake you’ve had recently?

My darling college roommate, Jess, asked me to contribute to her wonderful blog – I Love, I Need. I, of course, answered “Yes!” immediately and enthusiastically and here I am!

I’ll be sharing my insights, inspirations and adventures in Interior Design and what ever else may spark my fancy. Most of the time what I share will truly fall under the “I love, I need” mantra and sometimes it may be more like “I loved, I needed, now I have and I want to share!”

I hope you enjoy my take on design and I’m looking forward to contributing to the ever-present rants of what we all want, right now!

This week:
A Color Story: Vibrant Poppy

I’ve never been a huge red fan but I started noticing this fantastic orangey shade last Fall as Spring collections were sprouting and absolutely fell in love!

I paired the bright poppy in the rug and pillows with shades of navy and cobalt and cool grey walls. The combination of warm and cool tones live together harmoniously without feeling overwhelming, or at least I think so!

Eventful: Cake Stands

The Stand Takes The Cake!

Whenever I look at event photography my favorite shot is always of the dessert table. So much detail goes into highlighting the sugary delights making them seem that much more magical. A great treat stand is the perfect step toward creating an unforgettable sweets-scape.

So many styles of cake stands!

Cake stands can also go a long way to support the overall theme of your event. A delicate silver tiered stand (5.) is perfect for a tea party theme bridal shower or intimate cocktail party and the minty milk glass pedestal (2.) would be darling at a whimsical wedding or birthday bash.

 
What’s your favorite way to style a dessert table? Would you use on of these cake stands? Which is your favorite!?

Saturday Styled: Pancakes

With weekend after weekend chock-full of wedding meetings or quick getaways, a nice quiet Saturday morning is a treasure. We spiced up our morning with some tasty whole wheat pancakes, Buster (our new pup) was a big fan.
