Number Gummy Bear Cake from “Celebrate Everything!”

Today I want to introduce Darcy Miller’s new book Celebrate Everything! It’s out today! I received this in the mail a few weeks ago and could not believe how GOOD it is. Darcy Miller is the long-time Editor of Martha Stewart Weddings. She is a legend. Sometimes when a big name gets a book deal they phone-it-in a little but when I opened this book my mouth was agape! It is ridiculously amazing! Honestly it’s next-level. Every single page has like five good ideas and inspiration. You can see a video of the book right here. It belongs up on the bible-of-entertaining shelf. Today Darcy is sharing this cute cake idea from her book… and you can win a copy of the book below in the comments!

    Ah, I LOVE that cake. Saving this for a friend’s upcoming bachelorette party. I’d love a copy of this book because I think celebrating everything is the best way to constantly cheer yourself up. Even if you’re having a bad day, making a little thing something magical can turn it all around :)

    Aaah! This book looks amazing! I would love a copy for me and my daughter. She is six and wants to be a party planner when she grows up. Last weekend she told me I couldn’t go into the dining room. When she finally let me in, she had planned a “snack party” for the whole family. (Greek yogurt, whole carrots and fun size candy bars😂) Very tastefully displayed. Anywho, we would so enjoy this book together!

    Would love to win a copy of this book. Saw you flip through some pages on snapchat and it looks amazing! When I was younger my mom had a subscription to Martha Stewart’s Kids magazine which was almost entirely party planning ideas and diy crafts and just generally a fantastic magazine, I was a kid but loved reading it and it really sparked a lot of creativity for me. This book looks like it will be very similar in content and my inner child just needs to get her hands on it! Thanks for sharing this, i’m looking forward to checking it out!

    October 25, 2016

    OMG that cake and I can’t wait to see what the book has!! I am not very creative which is why I thank God for women who love to share their ideas. If it wasn’t for you ladies my parties would be drab! Thank you for being you!

    I love the idea of “Celebrating Everything!” I have loved my birthday for as long as I can remember, my mom started that when I was young with always going all out with our cake decor. I would love to translate more of that into my everyday life. Why not celebrate everything? Why not create magical moments in real life? I would love to do that and this book just looks like such a great tool to help. Also, all of the illustrations in the book? It’s so cute!

  31. Leslie

    October 25, 2016

    This is such a cute idea! I’ve never though about this. Aww, I want a piece!

  32. Rheanna

    October 25, 2016

    1) Can I make that cake for my 32nd birthday? 2) I should really probably do it for my kiddo’s 4th instead – that would be nicer of me 😉 3) Mom life is crazy, this book is amazing. I would LOVE to have it in my collection for making her childhood a little bit more beautiful and magical.

    The book looks amazing! It’s definitely going on my xmas wish list – so many great reasons to love it, most of all because it includes Darcy’s adorable drawings. I’ve loved her work for years (I’ve been a Martha Stewart Living subscriber since the late 90s) and it’s always so inspirational! Thanks for sharing.

  34. Suzy

    October 25, 2016

    I need this book! I have two young (crazy) kids and tend to take on too much when I throw parties. I think this book would help me streamline and focus on just a few really good ideas and as a result, maintain my sanity!!

  35. Erin Meza

    October 25, 2016

    This is so adorable!!! This book looks like tons of fun, and with a super silly seven year old with a birthday coming up and one on the way any day now, getting a few ideas on fun ways to entertain couldn’t hurt :)

It’s so easy to get caught up in being busy and having the house not be perfect enough, the kids being rested enough, ect… This book is perfect to bring more fun into our lives.

  47. Shari

    October 25, 2016

    I love Darcy’s site – true inspiration that is realistic to accomplish. I recently made the cinch pouches for a game night parting gift – put a mini game in each one. Easy and everyone left impressed. I would love to have an entire book to drool over.

    I started reading and watching Martha after my oldest was born, 17 years ago. She is responsible for my love of all things pretty and crafty, my plant knowledge, cooking knowledge, and my obsession with throwing cute parties. I LOVED her Kids and Baby magazines and cherish them like gold, and of course loved everything Darcy did. I haven’t been in the loop lately and would love to get reacquainted!

  49. Liz

    October 25, 2016

    I have my wedding and two baby showers to plan so this book would be perfect!
