My family and I are packing up our bags and getting ready for a much needed and over due vacation. We will be heading to south america to see family and enjoy some beach time.
I will be back mid January, but until then I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday filled with LOVE and JOY.
oh, and don't you just love my little noah up there... he's such a sweetie.

One of our sweet customers sent us photos from her daughter's recent western birthday party. She purchased our western printable invitations, along with a door sign, table sign, favor tags, and cupcake toppers. Even the cake was designed to match the invitations we had created for the party. I just love all the special touches and details that Jennifer made to put this party together. How cute are those western lollipop favors in the burlap bags!? So cute!
Thank you Jennifer for sharing with us!

(Be sure to look at posts below for more of Noah's party! :))
Another game I had planned for the kids was "pin the tie on Noah." It turned out to be super fun and the adults even enjoyed it! I designed a large cartoon drawing of Noah and printed it on 11x17 size paper. To hang the game I simply applied stick on magnets to the Noah poster and the ties, and stuck everything to the refrigerator... it worked perfectly.:) We also had a lot of fun making everyone pose with our mustaches on a stick. Overall it turned out to be such a fun and special event.
Handmade ties (like the one Noah is wearing) - Dress me up
I set up some simple outdoor activities for the kids, including bubbles and balls. I had several balls thrown in the yard in colors that matched the party, and I had bubble wands for the kids to make their own bubbles, as well as 2 bubble machines filling the backyard with bubbles for catching. The kids ended up having so much fun!
My baby boy, Noah, turned one last week and I thought I would share some photos from his big day! We decided to keep the party small and intimate, and it made the day so special to have some of our closest friends with us.
I decided to do a vintage "little man" theme with mustaches and ties used for decor, and a soda bar to add to the fun vintage feel. I found so many fabulous items on etsy to help make the day complete.
Here are some items that I found on etsy:
Tie bib - Fresh Vintage Shop
The cookie favors - Lori's Place
Mustache lollipop favors - Vintage Confections
Mustaches on a stick - Little Retreats

I recently received an email from Veronica Mendenhall of Dashing Designs and Events letting me know she had recently designed a baby shower with an owl theme using our owl invitations and circle designs. She did a wonderful job putting everything together! Check out her blog for DIY's and more info on this adorable baby shower design!

If you're having trouble coming up for a theme for your next party, try basing the party on a color (or a couple colors)! I found this adorable yellow themed bridal shower and loved the idea of the yellow. This party is courtesy of www.talidabakes.com.

This photograph seems very appropriate since I have been traveling lately (which is why my posts have been on the spotty side.) :) We have another short week here in the studio, but I hope to start posting more again once things around here settle down. I'm excited to share some more lovely party ideas with you!

I love this dreamy outdoor party! The pink and aqua colors just happen to be some of my favorites, and I would love to have one of these beautiful desserts right now. The lovely floral cake is described by Lemon vanilla cake with lemon curd, raspberry curd, and lemon mousse ... ummm, yes please. :) To see more pics of this party and other delightful desserts you can visit

How cute is this race car themed dessert table? I really love the black and aqua, and I think I may need this cake for my son's 3rd birthday party! This party is brought to you by Julie Desmeules, owner of Blue Cupcake. You can view her blog, here and her flickr page, here.
