All the Pretty Fruit; Unique Edible Centerpieces

27 Feb

Creating over the top fruit displays has been a Persian staple for centuries. N always jokes that he has no idea how any of us ever eat a meal as we tend to graze on fruit, nuts and tea all day.  Which is true, at my parent’s home anyway.

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of the edible creations fruit baskets, they’re just not my cup of tea. I don’t think I’d ever seriously consider one as an edible centerpiece for anything other than a kid’s birthday or casual get together.

Then came this e-mail, courtesy of mom. I’m not really sure about the origins (the website embedded into the pictures doesn’t seem to exist) but some of them are seriously pretty! Enjoy.

I had to include the over-the-top one 🙂

Valentine’s Day Inspiration

12 Feb

Whenever I see fireflies I can’t help but imagine N and I lounging on an old whitewashed swing swaying sweetly on a porch somewhere while the the warm summer sunset bathes us in amber tones. Even though February doesn’t exactly fit my vision, this party would transport us there…

Sweetheart Sundaes

10 Feb

Who says a dessert bar should be for a crowd? I say it’s the perfect, unique opportunity for you and your V-Day buddy to indulge in this seriously sweet sundae bar created by Eat Drink Chic

Not only does the site provide some (potentially sticky – in a good way) vintage dessert inspiration for V-Day, they even offer template downloads for all the labels and signs. This way you can spend less time fussing over the fonts and format and spend more time

a) finding the perfect toppings

b) browsing Amy Atlas Event

Atlas is undoubtedly the creator of the most stunning dessert bars ever! Just look at this perfected showstopper;

I didn’t even realize just how much I loved her designs until I popped over to her website and found tons of dessert buffets I’ve ogled in the past without realizing they all originated in the same great mind.
