In like a lion and out like a…lion?

Brrrrr! It’s almost April and we’re still chilly ( but mostly chillin’) in the mid-Atlantic. Still looking for the lamb to round out March.
Luckily,cute  party inspiration isn’t as hard to find. How adorable is this “Showers” theme for a  baby shower?

Loved these cloud straw flags:

The decorations were handcrafted by Lisa Storm (perfect name!) and all the crafty how-tos can be found on her entry over on the Fiskars blog.

Now to find that lamb…

Our latest event: A modern vintage “Tea for Katee”

I think it’s safe to say things change drastically after your first child. When you’ve finally gotten settled into the tumultuous start of parenthood, deciding to have more children can be like  removing some of the boards and rails from an already thrilling ride.

When our last client called on us about 6 weeks before she was due to deliver her third son and asked us to put together a tea for her close friends,  we already knew what it meant to have one last hoorah in celebration of her newest son before he arrived to cut the brakes on the ride.

And hooorah we did! The dainty way- with doilies, lace, and a  good taste.

Mic check 1,2,1,2: Is this thing on?

I’d like to fully explain our missing blog posts from Monday and Tuesday but it’d be lengthy and at this hour ,on what was an especially busy Tuesday, it’d probably all seem pretty incoherent anyway.  So tonight I’ll skip all the boring details and cut to the (very exciting) chase.

Tomorrow we’re sharing a modern vintage tea party for a sweet mommy of three!

We spent a dainty afternoon with petit fours, puffs and pastries. Lace, tea and ruffles included!

And now you may sneek peeketh:

All the details in the next post!

Say something profound.

Something profound.

It should be that simple. I struggled with what the first blog post should be.  We should say something magnanimous!  …something so outstanding that will have readers hitting the refresh button every hour on the hour in anticipation of the next post. But then I thought we’ve likely never met. We should just start with a simple intro.

Hi.We’re Haute Sugar. I’m Tara and she’s Sabrina. We make parties pretty.  We specialize in dessert displays and all of the details that make a party stand out.

This is our blog.  We’re officially here and anxious to start talking about what we’ve been working on and  and share all the great things we find along the way. Be sure to follow us on Twitter (@HauteSugar) and  leave a comment and let us know what you think about the new site.

And now without further adieu…

Here’s a sneak peak at our first feature!

Check back Wednesday  for  a look at the spa party we had in celebration of Sabrina’s newest lump of sugar.
