Say it with me 3 times fast: Bumpin’ Backyard BBQ in Balmy Baltimore

I  kicked off my summer with the big BBQ I  longed for back in March when winter had more than overstayed it’s welcome.
Warm sunny days always call for a celebration and we couldn’t think of a better time than 4th of july to gather up 70 or so good friends and family, a fantastic DJ and some ‘que.

I’m currently in love with brown kraft paper  and designed the invitation and color palette around an excuse to use these adorable brown kraft envelopes.


Since I knew some of my biggest HauteSugar fans would be in attendance, we put together a summer inspired dessert display complete with Burger cake , Strawberry shortcake sliders, Maryland crab cookies,  berry parfait cups,  cupcakes and Smores!

Had a great time with some of my favorite people. Looking forward to another great summer!

Summer hues for Winter blues

It looks like Winter has returned to the mid atlantic and Friday’s highs in the 70s have left me longing for spring and anxious for summer. To ease the frigid blow of  Tuesday’s high of  34, I’ve started thinking about sunny summer Saturday barbecues! ( say that 3 times fast!) Here’s an inspiration board for one of our big summer barbeque to ward off  the effects of a cold and dreary Monday.
