Sweet Designs: Bake It, Craft It, Style It

Grandma Joyce Wolf put a lot of detailed touches to this sugar sweet event for the first “Joyce” granddaughter in the family. I’m especially loving the height variations on the shades of rosy pink dessert table, the hanging ballet slippers from the chandelier, the lacy pink placemats peeking through the clear glass trays, the individual fruit cups, the personalized tulle wrapped cookies, the melt in your mouth cotton candy cones, the chocolate multi colored drizzled strawberries, and the melange of pink candies in an array of glass containers. What did I leave out??? Comment below! Marlene

Meeting Amy Atlas, the Dessert Diva in Bloomingdales

1 Comment 03 May 2012

 

Last week I ventured over to Bloomingdales in NYC to catch a glimpse of Amy Atlas signing her sparkling brand new book Sweet Designs: Bake It, Craft It, Style It. I must tell all of you that I was so inspired by Amy who is gracious, soft spoken and unassuming. She greeted me with a warm hug and and a huge smile, and I got that feeling that you feel when you catch up with an old high school friend.
Of course, if you’ve been following The Jewish Hostess, you know that Amy Atlas has offered a free SIGNED copy of SWEET DESIGNS to the most creative dessert bar submitted to our site. As a special treat to the winner, AMY ATLAS has ALSO offered to feature our WINNER on her famous blog, http://blog.amyatlas.com

So keep sending your dessert bar pics to marlene (at)thejewishhostess.com! Winner to be picked by the end of May 2012.

Check out some of the gorgeous decadent DESSET BARS sent in by our hostesses HERE.

Keep checking for new dessert bar posts every day!

Some of Amy’s sweet tips at her Bloomingdale’s dessert bar presentation:

  1. Firstly, choose your color palette, and a theme. For this dessert bar, Amy collected all of her husband’s pink and navy men’s ties, (and purchased some extras from Bloomies), and easily laid them across the width of her dessert table. Its a great reminder that sometimes the coolest displays can come from mundane items that stare us in the face every day.
  2. Its ok to mix fine china with glassware and colors from opposite ends of the spectrum. Just stay true to your theme and shape patterns within the table.
  3. White platters are an easy basic. They are so easy to dress up to match your theme. Line them with patterned paper that you can buy online, or print up on Etsy.
  4. A vertical element is essential for visual interest. We don’t want our tables looking like flat pancakes as a first impression when our guests enter the room.
  5. Always create visual interest. Use one cake plate with a dome, and one without.
  6. Of course, keep low lying desserts within reach of your guests. We don’t want the entire cupcake tower toppling when someone reaches for a low lying creme puff that’s stationed way in the back.
  7. Shaped your candy and printables to mimic the theme. Here, Amy used the triangular and diamond argyle pattern on her hubby’s ties as pattern inspiration.
  8. Symmetry of the table is so important for the WOW factor of your table. Take a step back and make sure that the desserts are distributed evenly heigh twise and quantity wise on both sides of the table.
  9. Colorful edibles such as rock candy will add fantastic interest to an empty vase, various containers, or as a punch to your candy platter. Have fun, and search your supermarket’s candy shelves for visually interesting sweets.
  10. Think out of the box. Be adventurous! Put strawberry mousse in votives, use wine decanters as a vase. Instant tower cake plate! Glue a cake dish right on top of a pretty candlestick and voila!
  11. Check out more pics from the book signing at Bloomingdales with Amy HERE!

A Winter White Engagement Party by Paula Benz

“Hi Marlene,

For my engagement, the theme was white and black with silver accents. (you can’t really tell from just the dessert table!) It Couldn’t have been done without the help of party planner Yvette Hanan she really is amazing at what she does. As for desserts, bakers Shirley Mamiye and Mari Gindi made individual brownies, napoleons, cupcakes, tiramisu, sugar cookies and more… The marzipan desserts featured in this pic were all custom ordered  and brought in by my family from Panama. Paula Benz”

More Dessert Bar Ideas From Esther Sassoon In Israel

A beautiful flower and dessert showcase. Flat glass squares can be bought at Ikea or custom made to fit your table top needs. They they be used over and over in so many different types of party themes because they serve the purpose of display without distracting from the decorative and colorful food, dessert, and floral array. Thanks, Esther!

“Hi Marlene,

Here is a dessert bar I made for a Bar Mitzvah recently. I baked the desserts, arranged the flowers and used glass canisters and sheets to display the desserts. Enjoy,

Esther”

Sculptural Glass and Copper Infused Modern Judaica and Wedding Gifts by Artist Gary Rosenthal

Sculptural Glass and Copper Infused Modern Judaica and Wedding Gifts by Artist Gary Rosenthal

No Comments 01 May 2012

 Gary Rosenthal, the popular Judaica artist the has presented works form his collection to the likes of President Carter, Clinton, Obama and celebrities as varied as Bette Midler, John Travolta and Ben Stein. Gary has been welding metals since the early 70’s and has carved his own unique niche in the Judaic sphere.  Combining copper, brass, and steel with brilliant fused glass, the Gary Rosenthal Collection has a contemporary style rooted in tradition. His inspiration comes from the rich history of the Jewish people which tells us it’s a blessing – a mitzvah – to make beautiful, functional, art.

Gary’s works have been viewed worldwide in many fine galleries, private collections, and museum shops including Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery, Corning Museum of Glass, American Craft Museum, B’nai B’rith Museum, The Jewish Museum, Skirball Museum of Culture, and the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts.

I really enjoyed going through Gary Rosenthal’s website and choosing my favorite pieces. Each one is a work of art and deserves a special place in your home and 

 will also be a treasured wedding or housewarming gift. Enjoy these highlights!

 

 Its not too early to start thinking about your Rosh Hashanah table…..

The shards from your broken wedding glass make a wonderful keepsake for years to come….

you can also have your wedding shards forever saved within your custom mezuzah by Gary Rosenthal…

I would buy about four of these, light up some candles, and use them as a romantic centerpiece….

Copper with a patina finish is so gorgeous on a doorpost….

This sculptural woven copper mezuzah deserves a full page in Architectural Digest Magazine….

A delicate mezuzah is the perfect gift for a newborn baby boy…

              Another gorgeous baby gift mezuzah by Gary Rosenthal….

A pink ribbon tzedakah box – perfect for Mother’s Day!

 Tuck these ornamental dreidels away for your Hanuka table top…

Saving my favorites for last…. a summery kiddush cup, so gorgeous on a table with lavender hydrangeas!

I’m loving these matchboxes as a Shabbat candle lighting accesssory…. the perfect hostess gift.

Send this menorah as a wedding gift  now, and they will keep thanking you way past Hanukkah!

Hope you enjoy these works of art as much as I enjoyed choosing them!
