If you haven’t heard the buzz around the web, Amy Atlas’ new book is OUT!!! “This is a must-have” would be a large understatement. Amy Atlas is the Queen of Dessert Tables and one of my biggest inspirations for launching Pizzazzerie! I still remember the day when one of my parties was first featured on Amy Atlas’ blog. I squealed…loudly.

Here are a couple of images from inside SWEET DESIGNS! + We’re giving away a copy of the book!

Orange is THE color this year, so this Zig Zag Party Table shows you how to incorporate pops of color! I love the strong white lines in the treat boxes, table decor, etc. Chevron is a popular print so if you are a chevron-lover, this is the table for you! This table would be perfect for a bridal shower, baby shower, or birthday party!

How gorgeous is this pastel party table? The candy table covering and the cotton candy – oh so gorgeous! It’s just radiant! This party table would be perfect for a baby shower, child’s birthday party, or even a wedding shower!

Amy tells readers how they can make just one item, mix and match items from different tables, or make the dessert tables as shown.

    Sherlyn says

    I would love to win this book for several reasons but I will highlight the two that stand out the most to me. I only recently found out about this fascinating world of Push Up Pops and Amy Atlas’s design dessert tables and I can say I was blown away with what I found out and saw. I’m super excited about the possibilities as I intend to use Amy’s book to host a summer bbq at my house which will include one of her lovely dessert tables with a twist of my own including your Push Up Pops so everyone can marvel and enjoy. From there hopefully do it for others including my god daughter’s first Christmas…
