feasting on the talents of others...post #2

Day TWO of this week's posts dedicated to the talents of others...(if you missed it, see Day ONE here)


Party Girl: Robyn
Celebration type: 30th birthday
Theme: "Upper East Side Chic"
Color palette/pattern - Black, White & Green with Black Damask
Inspiration - New York

Robyn, an artist and blogger from Chocolate Polka Dots contacted me about doing some cupcake toppers for the 30th birthday party she was planning for her sister, Krista. I jumped on board when she mentioned the color palette she'd chosen and her desire to incorporate black damask. FUN!!!

Here are the cupcake toppers I sent her...

And here's the magic she worked...

I love the color palette and theme Robyn chose. She did a wonderful job adding splashes of green and unexpected whimsy through the use of feathers, polka dots and hat boxes.

My favorite highlights:
• the homemade backdrop Robyn made. (her sister Krista is now using it as her headboard in her bedroom)
• the hatboxes were SO perfect with the stripes, damask and polka dots
• the black candelabras and green candles
• her decision to keep the cupcake toppers square instead of using the typical round ones.
• the lanterns
• the homemade photobooth with interactive props

There are even more details and photos on Robyn's blog - so be sure to check it out.
You might also want to peek at Robyn's recently opened Etsy shoppe if you are interested in some customized canvas wall art.

Thanks for sending me the after-party photos Robyn. You completely outdid yourself and it looks like everyone had a wonderful time!!
