Welcome To Icing Designs Blog

Hi, and welcome to our FIRST EVER blog post! Before we start...we just want our readers to know a little bit about us! We are surrounded by amazing family and friends! We are blessed enough to be able to stay home with our little girls and work on Icing Designs (hand-illustrated and hand-glittered invitations, cards, cupcake flags and gift tags) from our homes. We started our business together about 8 months ago. Kellie has been a designer of custom invitations for over 7 years and Melissa is a former pastry chef. Together, we share many passions. We both have a love for party planning and perfect details! We love anything French and dream of Paris. We love cooking, baking and most of all eating! We love anything that glitters and dessert bars at parties! We are inspired by all of the talent on Etsy, and that happens to be where we opened our first online shop. We both think we were born to live in Europe and walk on cobblestone roads laced with outdoor markets. We love coffee and think any and everything is better dipped in dark chocolate. We are inspired by all things vintage and shabby, ruffles and rosettes. We get excited about sales at Anthropologie and J Crew. We look forward to estate sales and blooming peonies in the spring. We have an obsession with pedestal plates and entertaining wear. Although we will always have a special spot in our hearts for cupcakes, we think macarons just might be the new cupcake! So...we are here to inspire you and to be inspired by you, we are excited to start this new journey. We hope our readers will be interactive and share with us as much as we will share with you!

Please email us anytime at icingdesigns@hotmail.com...we would LOVE to hear from you!

Let us leave you with a few images that inspire us.
Sweetly...Melissa and Kellie

The DIOR AD! Yes! It inspired me too! I love it so much...I have a dozen extremely large pastel balloons here waiting for a photo shoot with one of my girls. I need to look at it on a very large canvas in my home:)

I am loving your blog. You guys rock.
