Trollstice Second Birthday

Who doesn’t love Trolls, Keren of Simply Perfect Events planned and designed a Trollstice themed birthday party for a sweet little two year old.

Layla's Ballerina Fete

Khaliah of the Party Muse is an expert when it comes to the styling and decor for children's parties. She used our mini ghost chairs for a dainty and super gorgeous ballerina birthday party.  The setting for the party was an amazing contemporary ranch home right on the Hudson River in upstate New York.

Khaliah shared these heartfelt words on IG after styling this event:

"I'm kind of obsessed with all things ballet lately! This party has me dreaming, I have to pinch myself and remember I styled it lol. Loving my own work has honestly been an uphill battle for me. Creativity is personal and to let people in enough to share it is a vulnerable thing. I NEVER take lightly that someone is trusting me with their memories or their money because parties ain't cheap! Every time I get a new client it's humbling, and I appreciate it so much. I have to remind myself daily to be thankful because this business is so tough ..."

Indeed this business is tough and we appreciate all of the wonderful inspiration the Party Muse provides us with each amazingly styled event.

Interview: "There Should Always Be Cake"

We had the pleasure of interviewing Laury Saldana, owner and baker of NYC's There Should Always Be Cake. Laury was kind enough to answer a few questions, in spite of her super, busy schedule. We are so appreciative!

Years in the Business: 3

You’ve been in the Arts industry for many years. As a seasoned professional do you feel it’s a necessary requirement to have certifications or affiliations to go along with your title? Yes, I believe being talented on its own its excellent but having certification is what gives you that extra confidence and its also that extra tool that allows your customers to trust that they are dealing with a professional.

image.jpg

As a little girl did you envision yourself being a baker? What was your dream job back then? As a little girl I never even thought about it lol!!! I was born in NYC and my mom sent me to live to Dominican Republic when I was 10 years old. At that age I remember making and enjoying all sorts of confections like taffy also known as canquiña in Dom Rep, candied fruit (dulce de toronja, dulce de naranja), flan, dulce de leche, etc. I came back to the US at the age of 16 and also found myself voluteering my desserts and cakes at every family and friend's gatherings, without realizing this was my passion. I came to that conclusion years later when I decided to attend culinary school.

image.jpg

What’s your current obsession? Well... I think that would be cake stands and china lol!! I have a collection of over 120 cake stands. They are just so pretty to me and add that special final touch to your finished cake. 

image.jpg

What’s your must have fashion need, particularly when you are baking? My must have fashion need is a fabulous handbag lol!! I don't necessarily need it for baking but I can for sure bring my Chanel to the wholesale market when I buy my cake ingredients lol!!!!

image.jpg

What would you like to learn to do? Photography!!!! I would love to learn how to photograph. I bought a super high tech camera and have no clue how to use it lol!!! I want to be able to take a shot of a simple green pea and allow it to say a million things when someone looks at the photo. 

image.jpg

Do you admire anyone’s style (i.e., fellow bakers)? Oh yes!!! A few I totally admire are Elisa Strauss at Confetti Cakes, Stevi Auble at Hey There Cupcake, Peggy Porschen. Those are just a few I can think of.

image.jpg

I am a magazine junkie and I read multiple ones each month. What are your three favorite sources for inspiration? I absolutely love flowers and sugar flowers are my to go item when I want to glam up a cake. So to find inspiration I love to take a stroll sometimes at the botanical garden or page through botanical books, specially flower ones. Also, since I am a flight attendant as well, I love to travel and use the different architectural structures I see as inspiration. And last but not least, fabrics!!! I love couture, so looking at different fabrics helps me find inspiration when constructing cakes.

image.jpg

What lead you to setup shop for yourself? What was your motivation? My motivation was mainly the effect my creations have on people. It gives me great satisfaction to see how happy I can make people with my work and this is what motivates me every single day.

image.jpg

You have developed a well known brand; you name is synonymous with opulently created desserts. What do you think are the three most important skills needed to be successful in building a company brand? Perfection which is achieved by working super hard and making sure your work is flawless top to bottom even if it takes a million hours to finish. Love for what you do, since that is what motivates you to wake up every morning and create something that will make people happy. And perhaps the most important, a great team because you can't do it on your own. Your team is what keeps you running and acknowledging their hard work every single day is what makes your brand solid and successful.

image.jpg

What has been the biggest frustration in your career? To be quite honest... I don't have any yet because I love what I do. That's not to say I won't ever have any, but for now I am quite happy 😊

Shelby's Partea

We had the chance to work with Natasha of the Flair Factor to implement her daughter's 2nd birthday party. Let me just say Natasha outdid her self with this design and all of the personalized and custom elements. It was over-the-top and just right for posh tots.

Natasha was searching for many weeks for the perfect chandelier to use as an overhang for the children's table. She discovered the perfect one on Craigslist. She spray painted and decorated it with pearl strands. Super chic!

Right as I arrived home a large truck pulled in behind me. The chairs had arrived. The shipping boxes (as shown above) looked like they had been through a scuffle and lost. Nevertheless, the chairs were package so well all 30 chairs arrived without a scratch. We are super excited to embark on this new business journey. We hope to share our experiences as business owners and provide the latest trends in children's parties.
