Recently my husband and I were on another one of our sightseeing drives and we discovered this adorable sweet shoppe. I was so impressed with the contents and the decor of this little place that I asked the friendly girl at the counter if it was okay to take pictures so I could share it with you. She was thrilled with my interest and happily obliged. The tiny cupcake creations(shown above) looked so appealing.



There were shelves of cookbooks and of course that made me happy. Unique cookbooks of every color, size and content.


Sitting on the counter was this beautiful stand filled with colorfully decorated ceramic cupcakes that looked real enough to eat. What a perfect addition to a sweet shoppe's counter.





Another one of the refrigerated cupcakes displays with each one decorated with tiny goodies.




To the back of the store was this big display area, providing the privilege for anyone to decorate their own cupcakes.



With many flavors and colors of icings, and lots of toppings to choose from. What fun for all ages to decorate to their heart's desire.




Another cute item on display were these artistically done necklaces. Each one was displayed in a plastic cupcake container and had different designs. I wanted to buy one of each for my granddaughters.




For all of you plate addicts, there were shelves of festive, fun plates with many different dessert creations on them. Here too, I wanted to buy one of each...for me. Just dreaming. I liked the large red and white cupcake cookie jars.




More of the plates on display. The lighting and the glass shelves created the perfect backdrop for each piece.




Pastel wooden tables and chairs graced the central part of this shoppe. What thought and originality went into creating this place. I wanted to sit down and spend the evening here. Old fashion glass candy jars lined the one wall, filled with many different kinds of candy. I just could not imagine how excited the children would feel to discover a shoppe like this.




On glass lit shelves in the back of the shoppe were birthday hats extrordinaire. I am sure one would feel extra special to wear a hat like this on their birthday...maybe on my 60th birthday:)
Hopefully you enjoyed this tour of the sweet shoppe we discovered. Really it gave anyone who visited it a feeling of fun and happiness. So much so, that I decided to have a Memorial Day giveaway so that you too, could share in my fun. So you too, could have your own "sweet creation" to celebrate parties with, or just to have your own little ice cream party with friends.




This Partytime Sundae Topping Carousel includes 6 bowls, spoons, covered bowl and stand. I will include some fun ice cream toppings with it. Your part...just share a comment on my blog today or tomorrow. All the names will go in a crock and my husband will draw a name tomorrow evening...June 1, Tuesday evening giveaway deadline.
Happy Memorial Day to you!

Such fun. .candy to my eyes. What is it about beautiful decor and carefully decorated treats? I always appreciate how much time it must take to decorate like that. One thing I do not really enjoy is decorating cakes. I do love eating them though :)

Always happy to do my part :-).
What a cute and fun shop to come across on your drive. The owner seems to have thought of every detail in making it a charming place to visit. She also has an impressive selection of cupcakes to choose from. I would have a hard time making up my mind.
Visiting this shop through your beautiful photos was a real treat, but seeing the lovely item you are offering for a giveaway was, well ... the icing on the cake.

This IS the shop I used to dream about having, with my sister and my mom. We thought maybe it would be open for high tea in the afternoon and mother would bake her Norwegian 'wonderfuls', and my sister and I would be the happy hostesses! It was to be filled with all the eye candy that your shop pictures.

What a fun visit here, again...

Could you stick some glue on the back of my name so your hubby will pick me??? :)

PatsyAnne said...

I can't believe how adorable this cupcake heaven is! I may have missed it in the reading but what is the name of this wonderous place and where is it located? Through your wonderful photos I feel as if I was there walking through - however - I can't buy a cupcake for myself - oh woe is me - wonder if they're on the internet...

Marty said...

I love when you share your wonderful finds. If this place is local I'd love to know the address - always looking for fun places to visit with friends. Now that my daughter is back east we have 'days out' together again. What a great place!
I hope my name gets stuck to the glue on Hannah's name - I'll wait for a double drawing prize. =)

I LOVE cupcakes!!!! (Just found out about a shop in Calif. that makes cupcakes in a jar to mail.) But oh this shop, I've never seen anything so cute from the cupcakes, decorative necklaces to the pastel chairs! Be still my heart!
Thanks for the fun post!

I'll say that's an "adorable sweet shop!" What's funny, is that you had your camera handy. I'll bet you made the shop-keeper's day?!!

I'm glad I'm not dieting right now. Seems every time I visit you I leave with a terrible hunger - - usually for something with frosting, or cream cheese.

I love the charm you add to cooking, baking, creating, coloring, planting, or "accidentally" happening into someplace adorable.

Hugs,
Kathleen

I finally figured out how to leave a comment! I read your blog everyday as a homework break out at school. Thanks for all of the fun ideas and pictures that remind me of home!

Ally said...

Ah! Rachel beat me to it. I have a feeling I am too late, but just remember that little bill I slipped you tonight at dinner as you choose your winner. There is more where that came from:) Your blog is the best, I look forward to reading it and am disappointed on days you don't update it!!

Ally said...

Ah! Rachel beat me to it! I am probably too late, but just in case... remember that little bill I slipped you tonight as you choose your winner, there is more where that came from:) I LOVE your blog and I am so disappointed when you don't update it!!

Connie said...

I'm late but had to leave a comment! Congratulations and what a great little place you found. Everything looks so cute and I love the plates. Do they have a website?

Just a little something from Judy said...

You are all wonderful! You left the dearest comments and you just overwhelmed me with them. For those of you who inquired, this little shoppe is located in The Hotel Hershey. We visited this lovely old historic hotel recently, and what a treat it was. We walked through the lobby, the grounds, the quaint and beautiful shops. My mother was with us and she had just watched a historic document of Milton Hershey who built the Hershey empire and this hotel. It was a fascinating time spent here. This cupcake shop was in with the other fun shops. If you are interested in seeing more of this place, just get on the website of "The Hotel Hershey". If you live close by, it is a beautiful place to visit. It does not cost anything to walk through the place and maybe even enjoy a cup of coffee in the adorable little coffee shop.

Such a sweet and pretty shop and give away gift, Judy!

There is something so delightful about a cupcake that it is easy to see why they are so popular these days.
