A One-Stop-Shop For Ridiculously Cute Packaging


While I do love a good cupcake, it’s the fun packaging that makes devouring it that much sweeter.

Enter new obsession: ShopSweetLulu.com, a one-stop-shop site for those adorable little details you can’t seem to find in your typical party supply stores. The bold pinstriped straws (perfect for signature cocktails) have a retro pop-art vibe, while cheeky polka dot treat boxes and bags lend a lighthearted touch to bridal showers. With mini ice cream cups, scallop-edged cupcake wrappers and perfectly round balloons (no, really), the cute factor is almost overwhelming.

Warning: make room on your inspiration board—the product styling featured on the site is so darn pretty, you’ll want to pin everything.

    […] For the crumble 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour 1⁄2 cup sugar 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder 1⁄8 teaspoon salt 1 large egg 4 ounces almond paste 1⁄2 teaspoon almond extract 8 tablespoons (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces 1⁄2 cup sliced almonds For the filling 5 cups sweet cherries, pitted and halved 1⁄4 cup sugar 2 teaspoons cornstarch Makes 9 individual crumbles 1 Make the crumble: Preheat the oven to 350oF. In a food processor or in a bowl using a pastry cutter, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, egg, almond paste, and almond extract. Add the butter pieces and pulse or use a fork to mix until the mixture is crumbly. Press 3 rounded tablespoons of the mixture into the bottoms of 9 wide-mouth 8-ounce jars. 2 Make the filling: In a separate bowl, mix together the cher- ries, sugar, and cornstarch. Divide the cherry mixture among the jars, filling each jar to just below the lip. Mix the sliced almonds with the remaining crumble and add 3 rounded tablespoons of crumble to each jar to cover the cherries. Pack the crumble mix- ture down lightly to keep it in place. 3 Place the jars 2 inches apart on a large baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the tops of the crumbles start to turn golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet. Serve warm or cold.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
