AMY ATLAS: Dessert Bombshell Event Planner

amy atlas

Atlas of Amy Atlas Events, is a New York event planner who has gained renown as the designer of stylish dessert bars. Her creations have enamored the blog world and have caught the eye of all of the top pros including Martha Stewart who featured Amy’s creations on her TV show The Art of Cakes 2.

New York City events have recently seen the addition of a sweet new trend; weddings, showers, children’s parties and christenings adorned with decadent buffets of macaroons, rock candy, cupcakes, truffles, candy apples and other sinful delights.

Imagine every “to die for” treat your diet does not allow arranged artfully amidst ornate blooms on bright, luxurious linens. Sure everyone has seen a ”candy bar” at a wedding before, but event planner Amy Atlas has taken this old standby and turned it into a sugary art form, making it a highly sought after new trend du jour.

“Do you ever think that nice guys finish last so they’re just in time for dessert? One lingering look at an Amy Atlas dessert bar might have you slowing your roll.

The uptown gal known as “the dessert table designer” around the blogosphere develops custom ideas for everyone’s favorite dinner course.

From all-white wedding displays to nostalgic birthday candy bars to corporate party novelties, Atlas sources monochromatic goods from the best purveyors of petits fours, cookies, macarons, and more, then adds thematic backdrops, flowers, cake tiers, canisters, and candy jars.

Sugar, spice, and everything nice is color coordinated and labeled and displayed with an eye so meticulous that even your most anal guests will applaud.

If you’re not planning a blowout, you should still check out pictures of her work — if only for inspiration (and drooling).” * From Dailycandy.com

We designed this modern dessert table for a company event.  A graphic cake, custom yellow and black chocolates, licorice mints, lemon cupcakes and brilliant, yellow gerber daisies created a modern, but formal touch to the table.
