We are so glad that cake isn’t the only acceptable wedding dessert anymore! Donuts are one of the latest dessert trends in parties and weddings and we LOVE it. Donut displays are easy to make and provide a fun addition to any dessert table. Not to mention the endless possibilities for a solid pun. Here are a few of our favorite donut displays!
Happy Mother’s Day. To all the mom’s out there we hope that you feel loved and appreciated today. Take some well deserved time to relax, enjoy your family, and indulge in having a day to celebrate you.
In our first year of business, we both became new moms. Nobody prepares you for what that will feel like…or look like…or be like! We also felt the same way about starting our own business.
Now more than seven years later and five #littleblossoms later we couldn’t be happier with where we are at. We are on the other side of that leap, while still taking more leaps and closing our eyes to jump to the next thing each day. We’re lucky that our kids know us as moms who love their jobs. As dreamers, and as doers. As business owners and amazing multi-taskers. Or is that how we hope they perceive us? It’s funny that for as much as we hope to inspire them, they actually inspire us. They drive our passion that much more. Our passion for celebrating all of life’s moments with thoughtful details that make you escape to a magical time. Celebrating the small things in our everyday life in the biggest way. Whatever the reason for the celebration, we just like to celebrate. Life is too short and our love is too great to not celebrate the moments. All of the moments in which we’ve been blessed to have – good or bad, small or large, they are moments given to us that we choose to celebrate. Whether a pancake party in bed with sticky syrup fingers and spilled juice in our sheets or a glass of wine while watching the kids play in the backyard – – today we are celebrating.
Enjoy your day moms!

This sunday, treat Mom with a brunch fit for a queen! Here is some sweet + savory inspiration for a perfect mid-morning meal.
Satisfy Mom’s sweet tooth with mini donuts, mini pancakes, baked goodies or a parfait bar.
From breakfast pies, mini quiches to bagels topped with salmon, these savory dishes have our mouths watering.
Mother’s Day + flowers practically go hand-in-hand. Create whimsical centerpieces using colored glass bottles, repurpose vintage tea cups as planters or submerge a few blooms in large cylindrical vases.
Whether it’s tea, lavender lemonade, strawberry limeade or a mom-osa bar with fresh fruit, make sure your glass is full and ready to toast!
These honey + lemon tea spoons are perfect for a mom who loves tea!
Cheers to you, Mom!

Last week, a few lucky brides who attended the Ever After wedding show at the Edgewater in Madison took home a special ‘something blue’ gift. If you couldn’t make it to the show this year, we wanted to share with you some fun something blue ideas that we love. This tradition can be a fun was to incorporate your own personal style into an item you carry down the aisle, personalized embroidery on your dress, or even added to the bottom of your shoes. Check out our favorite ‘something blue’ ideas below.
