New Blog Design plus I need y'alls help!!



Happy Monday morning sweet friends!! I hope y'all have a fantastic week! I am beyond excited about my new blog design!!!! I was so so so lucky to have won a blog design giveaway from Shannon at Webbisodes! It was designed by Becca at Jumping Jax Designs. She is absolutely amazing!! I am super picky and I'm sure I got on her last nerve but she did everything I asked and made it look perfect! If you ever feel like having your blog re-designed, she's your girl!!! Thank you Shannon and Becca! :)







 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Okay, here's where I need y'alls help. I am wanting to start a little side business. I will do mostly cupcakes but I can also do cakes, candies, favors...etc. So I have been wanting to get some business cards done but I haven't come up with a name yet!!! I have really been leaning towards the name Sweet! Cupcakes & More. The design would be Sweet! written really big in cursive with a cupcake as the dot in the exclamation mark and then much smaller underneath would be Cupcakes & More. My brother doesn't like it so I asked Shannon what she thought and she came up with some more good names. Now I have no idea what to do!! I was hoping y'all could help me!!! Here's a list of names. Please tell me which one you like the best or if you have another name that you like. Thanks so much!!!!!!
 
 
 
 
 
1. Sweet! Cupcakes & More
 
2. Southern Sugar Company
 
3. Carolina Cupcake Company
 
4. Simply Sweet!
 
5. Sugar 'n Spice
 
6. Sweet Southern Cupcakes

  2. I really love Southern Sugar Company! It conveys that you'd do more than just cupcakes and it's cute and catchy. Carolina Cupcake Company would be my second choice. For me, the word sweet is overdone. You need something more original. :)

    Love the blog re-design too. It's very "you"! I'm grabbing your new badge for my blog roll.

  3. First off...YAY! You go girl! I am so happy to hear you are going to try to make this a little side business! I am so happy for you!

    I really like your original name, Sweet! I think that is straight to the point, cute, and unique. I would remember that name. I also really like Southern Sugar Company! That one is really cute as well!

    Love the new look!

  4. Cute new design dear! I like #1 & #4. Good luck!

  5. I like Simply Sweet but if I had to look it up in the phonebook I would prob look for sweet. So maybe your original name is the best. :) Good Luck!

  14. I like #5 - the rest seem limiting...like you are a sugar company...which you aren't, or just a cupcake company...which you arent...

  16. congrats on both your new blog design (love it!) and your venture into business!!! yay! i totally admire the small business owner -- mr prep is one of them, and it's tough, but so rewarding.
    as for the name -- i like all the choices, but am leaning toward the simple: Sweet! or Southern Sugar.
    Keep us posted .... this sounds like such a fun thing to do....
    i'm still waiting to find my talent! ;-)
    btw: the most relaxing part of our beach wkend was a real fancy italian dinner out before the inlaws and nephews arrived, just the three of us! ;-)

  17. Congrats on the new blog design, love it! I am in the market for a new blog design myself, so I will check out that link. Thanks!

    As for you business name, honestly, I like your first choice: Sweet! Cupcakes and more, best. I think its perfect! As a second choice, I like Southern Reflections suggestion: Souther Belle Cupcakes.

    Either way I'm excited for you. Go for it!!! :)

  21. I love the new design! I like your original name but your product will speak for itself. Yes, the name should be catchy to get the customer's attention but once they try your little gems, they won't care what you call yourself! Congratulations and good luck. I've always wanted to do that too so please let us know how it goes.

    And I like the name Sweet! Cupcakes and More... and Sweet Southern Cupcakes... those are my top two picks! That's so exciting that your're able to do that, I'm so proud =) Keep me updated on how it's going!

  30. I like # 1. You should do a survey on your blog and see which one has the most votes. I have a new layout for my blog too but I did it myself. It wasn't as nice as your. Good luck with your business

  35. beautiful! love the new looks...absolutely beautiful... i'd go with Southern Reflections.. "Southern Belle Cupcakes" sound so sweet and cool to me..:)

    ReplyDelete
  36. 1 or 6! and i figured you already had a business, looking at those amazing cupcakes!
    love the new look!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I think your first one is the best. I am in the very beginning stages of starting my own cupcake/bakery business as well! I like the idea of having "Cupcakes" in the title, to day that you are a cupcake bakery as they are so popular. And the "& More" shows that you can do a whole lot more! Best of luck, keep us all updated on your venture. I will start posting on my little business soon as well! xoxo
