cutest cupcakes

Martha Stewart CupcakesThere’s a new gallery on marthastewart.com called “Cutest Cupcakes” – and I have to agree! How adorable are these little guys… great for kids parties, birthdays, baby showers and more. I’m especially loving the Shark and Beach design…

And if you’re looking for something great to put your cute cupcakes on, how about this fantastic cupcake stand set from Horchow? The stands can be stacked to create a tall tower or displayed individually – and all have slightly raised rings to keep cakes neatly in place! {via Florid Disposition}

"canned" cocktails

Stawberry Pear DaquiriWhen I received an email a few weeks ago with the subject line “Easy, Delicious Cocktails from… Canned Foods?” I have to admit I was slightly skeptical about the idea. But once I actually read the recipes – which utilize long-lasting staples you might already have in your pantry such as canned peaches, pears and fruit cocktail – I realized that this idea was actually pretty smart. And these gorgeous photos don’t hurt either ;) Scroll down for direct links to each of the recipes pictured here…

Clio Martini Glass

I was looking through a stock photo gallery for a client project this morning, and was pleasantly surprised to see a martini glass resembling one of my favorites from C&B – the Clio – used in a fun, unexpected way…

Martha at Macy’s

There’s something so calming and elegant (not to mention useful !) about simple white dishes and serveware – which is why I’m totally smitten with Martha Stewart’s new whiteware dining collections at Macy’s!

REAL PARTIES: Hot Pink Baby Shower

My friend Anasuya recently threw a super cute – and very hip – baby shower for a friend at a restaurant in LA. My favorite thing about this shower is the use of hot pink as the key color – a fresh take on the traditional baby pink palette.
