The cupcake trend isn’t going away, so let’s make it phenomenally pretty!

Yes, I use towers and displays of cupcakes all the time at parties: weddings, galas, baby showers, product launches, fashion shows, kids’ parties and birthdays for adults. Love cupcakes.  But the trend is a tad overplayed, no?

Well, I’ve found a solution to make them fierce!  In addition to using sparklers in the cupcakes, I love to use chic wrappers.  I have found some on Etsy but my favorite by far are those done by Paper Orchid.  (psst – check out their other stuff too).  Laser – cut, 60 patterns, over 35 colors, you can even design your own.  We’re crushing on the feathers, the paisley jumble ones, the spider web ones for Halloween and the adorable ones that say “Bite Me”.

About lseccuro

As a mom, lifestyle expert, surfer and event planner, I love to discover the next uber-cool thing! Whether it's a shoe, a wine, a food, a photographer, a designer, a blog, a flower or a travel spot, you can find me trolling for it! I also like to blog about the kids and how running a household like this keeps me grounded. I love all things beautiful, but mostly Mr. F4 and the little ones, Ava and Leo. Things I love: sparkly anything, homecooked meals, snowy white sheets, holidays, photography, monograms, antique silver, reading everything I can get my hands on, Pilates, learning anything new, antiquing, gardening, collecting cookbooks and shoes, mixing slouchy sofas w/ sleek chairs, collecting china, the beach, Ruzzetti & Gow seashells, seersucker, Sharpies, Chanel lipgloss, counting my blessings. Drop me an email or a comment and I look forward to meeting you!
