Kraft Paper + Vintage Lace = beautiful

It's been a little bit since our last update, but we've been keeping busy! This past week, we've done everything from sunflower cake pop favors, a last minute order of 100 s'mores pops, and some custom Etsy work.
Last week, I started working on a new suite inspired by our love of kraft paper everything. It lends such an instant rustic touch that you can't help but love.
So without further adieu, presenting our new "Kraft Vintage Lace Suite"

This suite will include a custom invitation, RSVP card, insert card, and up to 25 table cards with unlimited revisions for $40! They are up in the store and you can find them here:

Until next time!

Love Is take some treats

Our recently launched Botanical Gardens suite has been a big hit. We're now able to offer it in two color options: vibrant (original) and pastel (new) hues.
The original:


And then we figured....why stop there? So we did matching table numbers"

And then matching candy bar signs:

We got carried away as usual. But we're sure that there will be even more matching items soon! This suite is just so damn pretty.

Calligraphy Menus

We've had calligraphy on our minds for a long time now. We even considered taking a class to learn it. It's really beautiful, and just lends an elegant look to everything.

Being that we have no free time to take a class, we decided to splurge and invest on the next best thing: a special, hand drawn calligraphy font-two to be exact.

It's BEAUTIFUL!! It looks just like it was hand written. We even have the option of flourishes, and an "unbroken space" which lends the illusion of the pen never having left the paper. There's so much that we can't wait to make with these, and we're in the process of designing several items.

The first to be finished is a wedding menu card. The font used on this one is "Bombshell Pro" by Emily Lime.
As usual, we can customize the colors, etc. We can even pull the exact color from an invitation or dress photo if provided for an exact match!

 These are up and available in our Etsy store as of tonight! We're offering these in two options: a DIY printable version, and a printed version on either white or cream colored cardstock. Check them out here:

We hope that you love them as much as we do! We're almost finished working on escort (seating) cards in the calligraphy prints, and desert/candy bar labels also! Check back soon!

Olga's Peacock Themed 24th Surprise Party

Sugar Queens was recently commissioned to throw the surprise 24th birthday party of one of our friend Olga. The theme was a purple & teal peacock theme, and we're excited that after a month of covert planning, that we're FINALLY able to post some photos of the party!

The party was held at their home in Brick, NJ. While she was out of the house for the day, we got to work getting everything ready.

When we get a theme, we're known for following through with it in all details. Check out these beautiful mason jar center pieces!

We also did matching water bottle labels. They came out so amazing that we're going to be offering them in out store! They can be found here: Peacock Feather Water Bottle Labels 

The tables were set with matching linens, and had the mason jar centerpieces tied with matching balloons, and scattered jars with votive candles in them. Vanessa made these out of baby food jars, and added coordinating ribbon and some lace to them.

The AMAZING dinner was catered by Chef In Thyme LLC. We got a TON of compliments on the food-everyone wanted to know who made it.
Check them out at
Executive Chef Qadiyr R. Bullock of  Chef In Thyme makes everything 100 % from scratch.

The dinner menu included:
Beef Stir Fry
Roast Pork Shoulder <------out of this friggin world amazing
Pulled Pork
Curry Chicken
Glazed Carrots
Penne Vodka
Sofrito Marinated Chicken Wings

I know that we promised pictures of the food. But the second that we took the lids off, it was OVER. They picked them CLEAN. So here's a picture of the empty trays LOL. The food was just amazing.

For dessert, we had a huge red velvet and cream cheese birthday cake. 

We also had brownie chocolate chip bars, sugar cookies, lemon berry trifle, banana pudding trifle, and a candy bar full of the birthday girl's favorite treats.

It was a great night-thank you everyone for coming out! Can't wait to do it all over again!
