Simply Suds - dessert table with a twist!

For those of you who know me, bath and body products are my #1 weakness! In fact I toyed with the idea of starting my own handmade line, before I went in the paper direction with InkSpot Workshop. Can you think of a better way to treat and pamper yourself? I get lost in everything from the way products look (such a sucker for adorable packaging) they way they make your skin feel and most importantly the endless supply of clever scent combinations. For a while I was completely into smelling like a baked good! The sweeter the better. Still love a good lemon cookie smelling bubble bath with super rich body butter to complete the little personal treat.

Thanks to all the peeps I follow on Twitter, I just discovered this AMAZING online magazine called Nonpareil. It is the brainchild of way too many creative people to list here, so be sure to check out the incredible roundup of contributors. The latest issue has captivated me way beyond any other magazine article EVER! We all know how a well organized dessert table can take center stage these days and turn an ordinary event in to an extraordinary event, right? How about a dessert table where everything is a bath goodie?

I am so blown away, in awe and inspired by this feature called Desserts With A Twist. I'm not even sure which element I love most. Is it the fun play on my favorite bright colors paired with stark white? The simple, tasteful graphic design elements for the packaging? Or the fact the cupcakes are really bath bombs? My paper crush Kristen of PaperCrave is one of Nonpareil's contributors and the imagination behind this setup. Pair her together with the shutterbug precision eye of Lisa Rigby Photography and you get THIS!

OK, I figured out the best part.....everything you see here, from the labels, cupcake boxes, to the goodies themselves, you get the COMPLETE inside scoop! Free downloads to make your packaging look just as cute, product recipes (nothing store bought here!) and simple instructions for how to setup your own dessert table with a twist. How much fun would this be for your next girl's night in? Baby Shower? Tween's birthday? Heck, do it just for yourself:)
