5.0 out of 5 stars HUGE books of dessert and candy bar secrets

2.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money
I don't usually leave reviews but this one I just had to do. I was looking forward to this book for different and unique ideas and was very disappointed. There's not an idea in here that can't be found online. On the plus side, I did find the pictures and list of vendors helpful.

Page after page of full colored images and instructions - it's a tome! Second, there's so much more infomration than I had expected - TONS of recipes, resource guides, and DIYs. Three, it's not just rehashs from Atlas's blog - there are lots of mew ideas and projects. Last, the instructions and DIYs are so simple and easy to follow. Wonderful book.

This review is from: Sweet Designs: Bake It, Craft It, Style It (Hardcover)
As an admiring and long time follower of Amy Atlas' work, her first book "Sweet Designs: Bake It, Style It, Craft It" was all that I imaged it to be and more. The book features displays of never before seen sweet tables with detailed deconstructions of how to bake her treats, display them, and create your own crafts according to theme. The book is organized into dessert themed chapters which makes it easy and fun to read through! With all of her tips, craft patters, and extensive resource index you don't need to look much further to create a one-of a-kind masterpiece!

For anyone who loves to entertain and host unique and delicious parties this book is for you! It's also inspirational to anyone wishing to follow in Amy Atlas's footsteps in becoming an event planner/sweet stylist and it has certainly helped me figure out how to execute and pursue my passion for event planning and sweet table design.

This review is from: Sweet Designs: Bake It, Craft It, Style It (Hardcover)
Oh my, this book is like hostess porn, the photos are AMAZING. There are so many ideas, and best of all the information is there for you to replicate these tables at home! The book includes recipes, and sources for the things you need to make your table amazing. I'm an event planner, and I always tell people the details are what makes a party special. Amy takes this to a new level. You don't have to be a professional to enjoy this book, you can pick and choose elements, even the non-crafty can find inspiration in this book. Buy it!

i just got the book finally! and am devouring it. Bought 6 copies to give away over mothers day. The recipes are simple to follow and the images are beautiful. Will be going through it tonight with the kids and pick a special recipe to make together with them. There is also a wonderful appendix that lists all the places you can purchase the tools/ingredients at and even sample templates to download. Amazing book, great purchase!

After 4 months of waiting I can't tell you how excited I was when my book was delivered this morning. The wait was definitely worth it!!! I discovered Amy a few years ago when I was looking for ideas to plan my friend's baby shower. Her dessert tables were so inspirational and I spent countless hours admiring them. I was totally channeling Amy when I created a dessert table for the baby's christening...it was definitely one of the highlights of that memorable day. I was ecstatic when Amy featured pictures from the party on her blog...it literally made my year! [...]
With Sweet Designs not only do you get beautiful pictures of Amy's amazing dessert tables, she includes the inspirations, recipes, crafts and set-up behind them...we're talking the total package! You better believe this book is going to be my #1 reference for future party planning.

Bravo Amy! Well done and I anxiously await your next book!

This review is from: Sweet Designs: Bake It, Craft It, Style It (Hardcover)
I've been eager to buy this book ever since she announced on her blog that she was writing one! It certainly lives up to all that Amy promised it would be. Every dessert table in this book is broken down in terms of baked goods (including recipes), design elements, craft instructions and tips for changing it to make it work for your event, budget, etc. She also includes lists of tools and products that she uses, provides templates for craft items, and gives contact info for all the resources she uses to buy the items for her tables. The photographs are beautiful and the book is substantial. What you get for the price of this book is definitely worth it! I'm actually very surprised it isn't more expensive! Amy is obviously very thorough in the planning and execution of her dessert tables, and that has translated beautifully into this book! I HIGHLY recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars STUNNING! An instant classic., April 24, 2012
This review is from: Sweet Designs: Bake It, Craft It, Style It (Hardcover)
I cannot say enough good things about SWEET DESIGNS! In this beautifully designed book, the talented Amy Atlas provides her tips and secrets to baking, crafting and styling the perfect celebration. I love her use of color and clever themes. I love to entertain, but I'm not too "crafty" and work a lot, so don't have a lot of time for elaborate party planning. I was thrilled to find easy to follow tips and brilliant shortcuts for someone like me. I can't WAIT to throw my friend's baby shower now that I Amy's book as a guide. Every guest will be receiving a copy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of ideas!, October 19, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sweet Designs: Bake It, Craft It, Style It (Hardcover)
I first saw this on amazon but didn't pay too much attention to it. Then I saw it at Target and skimmed through it but didn't want to spend the money on it there. After receiving the book I would have paid full price for it because it really is that good. There is a little something for everyone in it, which I love. It gave me great ideas for recipes and presentation. Its a clean and fresh book with lots of pictures and sources. I think this is a great book to add to your collection. One of my favorites in this book is the Necco wafer runner-perfect or any baby shower or candy land themed party. I also love the game night candy board. This will also make a great gift for anyone who likes hosting parties,DIY crafts, any mom, and/or anyone who likes baking. I really hope Amy comes out with another book!
