Welcome to Potter and Butler! We are creative makers of handmade goods for merry celebrations, and this is our diary. In this cozy space, we collect and share the beauty, joy, fun, inspiration, and creativity of the handmade life - and all the jolly celebrations that adorn it. We're glad you've joined us.
Our creative customer, Heather, ordered up a colorful collection of Peppy Toppers for her mother’s 60th birthday cake. While the toppers are typically touted for their cupcake decorating powers, we love how Heather was able to create an original vision for these festive toppers, and we adore the end result! To see more pictures from the rustic outdoor soiree, check out her blog: Swoon & Sigh. And be sure to mosey around a while because the blog is filled with goodness.

Hey, friends! Happy summer kick-off weekend! We hope you have plans, in abundance, for summer fun this weekend – and in the weeks to come.
We will be traveling the country – hugging loved ones we get to see once a year – during June 1-June 18. Therefor, our production will be resting its legs, as well. We will still be accepting orders during this time. Orders will be crafted in the order they were received beginning June 19. If your item is time sensitive, feel free to email or Etsy convo us during this time to get a delivery estimate. Our responses will be sun-kissed, indeed.
Have a lovely, delightful, wonderful summer kick-off weekend!
We are adoring this sweet mobile our creative customer, Nikki, made for her baby girl, Evie. Using over 40 of our 1″ bare poms, a custom order she initiated, she created a one-of-a-kind nursery mobile. Isn’t it so pretty? Our hearts always skip a beat when we see our goods paired with natural elements.
We admire her vision, we are grateful to have been able to collaborate, and we wish both Nikki and her lovely daughter, Evie, endless sweet dreams.

Thanks to customer Vera Divera for sharing her birthday photos with us! We had the pleasure of crafting her birthday cake topper. Our pleasure continues as we take in the photos and read more about her party theme: Oinks + Hops: A Teal and Green Ombre Beer Tasting and Whole Hog Roast.
“When I looked at other “beer tasting” parties for inspiration, everything I saw was masculine. I thought, hey girls like beer too! So that’s why I decided to do a beer tasting with a feminine touch — i.e. lots of pretty paper, flowers and teal and green. In addition, I love pork!” – Vera
We love it! Make a party out of your loves = celebration perfection. Check out pictures and the Oinks + Hops party plan on Vera’s blog.

You know what we LOVE about being a little creative studio? Ok, the list is too long for this space, but one thing that we LOVE is that we can take feedback from YOU and put it into play right away. You wanted our retired Heirloom Pom Garland to be bigger and more substantial. You also wanted the poms to keep their poof better. Well, friends…. We’ve done it!
We’ve discontinued our beloved fabric pom garlands and updated them to allow for bigger, more poofy, better POMS – resulting in bigger, more poofy, better POM Garlands! How did we do it? We switched out the fabric for crepe/tissue. We upped the pom size from 2″ to 3″, and we replaced the monofilament hanging mechanism with hardy bakers twine.
The birth-child of an age-old embellishment + a classic celebration cake. New in the shop + ready to party: Potter+Butler Custom Tassel Cake Topper.
