Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge reached out to me last week and asked me to participate in a story for her weekly business advice column. The story focuses on how local NY businesses are affected by the recession. Design*Sponge just posted the article and you can view the feature here. I think the answers from all of the participants were very informative. What have you done to help your business grow during this tough economic climate?

I have to share a website that has the most vibrant goodies. For a while, I wanted to keep it to myself, but I couldn't bear the idea of not sharing this with you! It is a baker's site from half way around the world, but clicking on her site just makes me happy! Although I won't be visiting Hala Audi Beydoun's Cocoa and Us Shop anytime soon since she is based in Beirut, I will visit her site often for loads of inspiration, especially for kid's parties. Not only are Hala's vivid colors on her baked canvases so inviting, she also has come up with creative ways to make her confections innovative and fun. Be sure to get through every image on her site, as you will not want to miss one single image!
I found these adorable diy candy favors from Zakka Life, via Party Perfect Blog. Aren't they adorable? Created by using cupcake liners from Bake it Pretty , these adorable favors would be a cheery addition for one of my dessert bars!
I saw these adorable favors on the Event Blossom site and had to share. After a hot and sunny weekend in NY, I thought these would be great to include for a favor at a beach wedding event. What are some of your fave beach wedding favors?
