Next Generation Pediatric Cancer Outreach

Danny's Dragon Cake

We were so thrilled to partner with Next Generation School for Pediatric Cancer Awareness in the month of September.   In an effort to raise support for more research in the field of childhood cancer, we collaborated with an enthusiastic group of 6th grade students to build an edible commemoration for their friend and fellow classmate, Danny Nardi.

To say that we had fun would be an understatement!  These kids were absolutely brilliant and beyond excited — not only to support Danny’s cause, but also to create a personal and unique design for our dragon cake and yellow ribbon cupcake display.

We invited the students and their families into Cream & Flutter for a special event where we sold the cupcakes and slices of the cake to raise money for Danny’s fund.  The turnout was so enormous that we ran out of room and had families spilling out of our space and onto the sidewalks.

We were so touched and inspired by these 6th graders.  AND we think they make awesome cakes!  We can’t wait for our next partnership….

XOXO,
All of us at Cream & Flutter

Announcing: C&F + BHLDN

Decor Room Table

At Cream & Flutter, our most creative and inspiring work is often brought to life while working with brides and party throwers.  So when we began collaborating with Anthropologie‘s newest bridal brand, BHLDN, it seemed like a dream come true.

Now, we could not be any happier to announce our formal partnership with BHLDN, where we will be combining our delicious pastries and confections with their gorgeous decor and apparel.  You can now purchase a selection of Cream & Flutter products in the Chicago BHLDN retail store, and you can also find a selection of BHLDN decor items on display and for sale at Cream & Flutter.  We strongly believe that this relationship will create new possibilities for both Cream & Flutter and BHLDN clients, and are looking forward to continuing our work with BHLDN in new and unique ways.

Love the BHLDN style as much as we do? Ask us for a BHLDN dessert table! We are happy to incorporate BHLDN treat pedestals, signage, cake embellishments, and backdrops along with our Cream & Flutter sweets to create a totally swoon-worth display that your guests will adore.

Take a peek at BHLDN decor here.

Book Signing with Bash, Please

The New-Fashioned Wedding

We recently had the pleasure of helping BHLDN Chicago throw a book signing party for the event producers (Paige & Kelly) at Bash, Please.  Paige and Kelly are the cool creative force behind many weddings and celebrity events along the California coast and have recently published a book, The New-Fashioned Wedding, that chronicles their designs and approach to planning and executing unconventionally hip events.

These two ladies are down-to-earth and a whole lot of fun.  We were honored to spend a sunny afternoon with them at BHLDN, handing out sweets and talking weddings with a lot of newly engaged brides.

You can check out a few photos from the event, including the Cream & Flutter dessert table, super-duper cute BHLDN merch, arrangements from the lovely Lynn at Pollen Florals, gorgeous china from Sarah at Vintage Plate Rentals, and of course, Paige and Kelly themselves!

Martha Stewart Wedding Party

BHLDN/C&F Display

Lucky us!  We recently got to spend the day with two wedding industry greats: BHLDN and Martha Stewart Weddings!

The Martha Stewart Wedding Party was a huge hit among Chicago brides, bringing the best in Chicago wedding vendors, loads of great food, tall flutes filled with mimosas, and wedding advice from the celebrity editor herself, Darcy Miller!

Michele, Danielle, and I turned heads all day in our colorful BHLDN spring frocks, while showing off the coveted Onyx gown from Catherine Deane, more of the BHLDN spring collection, and a full display of color coordinated sweet treats.  Lynn from Pollen floral design brought us the lovely spring blooms.

Of course, the best part of the day was meeting all of those sweet brides.  Congrats to you all and happy wedding planning!
