We are so excited, no… exstatic, or maybe even over the moon about our feature on Amy Atlas Blog this week.
We recently put together a Dessert Table for our nephew, combining his birthday with an Easter/Spring theme. We never dreamed it would be successful enough to be featured on a blog that we look to for inspiration. A HUGE thank you to Amy Atlas and her team for considering us for the feature and providing us with your creative genius to aspire to.
In case you don’t know who Amy Atlas is or what she is all about and why we are so crazy excited, here is a little bit of information about her from her website:
“Amy Atlas is a coveted entertaining expert, baking and crafting stylist, and is internationally recognized for creating the stylized dessert bar trend. Amy’s work has appeared multiple times in InStyle Magazine, Parents Magazine, Better Homes & Gardens, The New York Times, Every Day with Rachael Ray, The Los Angeles Times, Food and Wine Magazine, Life & Style, Gotham, New York Magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides, and many more. Her work has appeared on thousands of top US and international entertaining and lifestyle blogs.
In 2008, Amy created Sweet Designs to share her styling tricks, recipes, diy tips, and behind-the-scenes of her work. InStyle Magazine named Sweet Designs one of the best entertaining blogs in November 2010.
From a very young age, Amy was entertaining for friends and family. By the time she reached college, she had perfected her talent for her signature dessert tables.
After several years of working on political campaigns and practicing law, Amy decided to return to her creative passion for entertaining and party planning.
Desserts bring back many sweet memories for Amy so it is no surprise that she would specialize in her signature dessert tables. Amy’s fondest sweet memory from childhood is of sitting in her grandmother’s sunny kitchen on a spring afternoon, watching her pull homemade rocky road cake out of the oven. While waiting to lick the bowl, Grandma would let Amy drizzle caramel icing all over the cake. To this day the smell of rich, melted caramel still reminds Amy of that wonderful spring afternoon, when it felt like the world belonged to just the two of them and the essence of happiness was warm rocky road cake.
Amy lives in New York City with her husband, Rick, and sons Zachary and Joshua.
Not surprisingly, her family’s favorite activity is baking together!”
