Meet our New Line: Fruit Salad

Our dream for the fruit salad utensils? That they would grace gift baskets, homemade jams, & baked treats around the nation. We'd love to see them at each place setting at a vintage-style picnic wedding reception. And, of course, at our favorite meal of the day - Brunch!

You can find these super sweet fruit salad utensils right here!

Meet our New Line: Bananas

We've put a lot of work into our brand new utensil line and we're thrilled to finally introduce some of our favorites to you! It's so fun to dream up the parties that our utensils could be a part of so we thought we'd let you in on our dream party for our bananas utensils. 

Bananas utensils feel most at home in a fun pop art style party with crisp white backgrounds and graphic b&w stripes. And, of course, pops of bright yellow! Bonus points for throwing an amazing banana-themed party!

Ready to order these babies, yet? We can't wait to see how you use them. Find forks, spoons, & knives right here!

Fiverr & Etsy Conversation Podcast

Hi Everyone!
One of my New Year's resolutions is to post more personal things on our Sucre Shop blog. Starting now! I thought I'd write about some things I've been doing lately, and a few things I've learned. A lot of you asked me about this picture I posted on our instagram, so I'm starting here.

I just took a 5 hour road trip to Chicago to shop the One Of A Kind Craft Show, and Renegade, and after I listened to the entire Serial Podcast I started searching for other things to listen to. I was lucky enough to find the Etsy Conversations podcast, which is not hosted by Etsy, but is a discussion between the host, and mostly small business owners who sell on Etsy. It's all about Etsy, lessons, advice and stories.

Cookie Decorating Party

Tis' the season for cookie decorating and we thought we'd give you a few ideas to make your decorating party cute & functional. Here's a few things you will need for the party:

1. Butcher paper - spread white butcher paper over all of your decorating surfaces to keep things clean & give a nice blank slate for the cookies

2. Squeeze bottles - these bottles make applying icing so much easier and allow for much more intricate decorating

3. Cookie Cutters - Of course you'll need cookie cutters! (unless you buy store bought cookies - no shame in that!) We love these classic shapes in gold. 

4. Sprinkles - sprinkles, and more sprinkles! You cannot have too many sprinkles in our opinion. 

5. Cupcake liners - Sprinkles, candies, and other decorations fit perfectly in cupcake liners & can be spread out at each decorating station.

6, 7, 8. Wooden spoons & scoops - Scoop & sprinkle with Sucre Shop utensils in each cupcake liner. Our utensils are perfect for little hands to use & make the decorating table very festive. 

9.  Baker's Box - Send home your beautifully decorated cookies in a cute bakers box. Be sure to line with wax paper so that each cookie arrives in tact. 

10. Muffin tin - For a more transportable option, fill your muffin tin with sprinkles that you can pass down the table with minimal spilling.

Did we miss anything? We'd love to hear your cookie decorating secrets!
