Classic Carriage Collection: Mandy's Baby Shower!

A few weekends ago, I was honored to help host a baby shower for one of my BFFs, Mandy. Mandy and I met in graduate school, moved to Atlanta together, lived together, taught 3rd grade at the same school together and got married 3 weeks apart. The only thing left was to have babies together. So here we are...Mandy is expecting her first little girl in January and I will be expecting again in April! Check, check, we are pretty good at this! :)

Here is the collection I put together for her special day. My favorite decorating detail was the classic carriage that I borrowed from my mom. It was her stroller as a baby and was the perfect welcome scene for this classic carriage shower...

Garden Party Decorations for SALE!

I'm organizing at my house and the decorations from the girls' garden party are taking up lots of room! I planned to wait until the spring to sell their party decor, but decided some may be already in the planning mood for your little gal's next party. For $100, your party is now ready for you! With exception to a crack in one of the yellow utensil pots, everything is in PERFECT condition and ready to make someone's garden party very special! This sale includes one banner from the garden party collection and one banner handmade with a Circuit machine. All other paper products (invites, cupcake toppers, etc.) would need to be ordered and are not included in the $100 sale. However, a discount price would be available on the remaining order! :) To see pictures of the items in use, scroll down to the girls' garden party at the bottom of the page. If you are interested, send me an email. Thanks so much!

Sweet Shoppe Collection: Molly's 1st Birthday!!

With lots of inspiration from the girls' lollipop party, I put together a cupcake sweet shoppe for Molly's 1st birthday! Molly's momma had already found her adorable tank top and bib from MakMay Designs so I designed her invites and party decor to go along with her cupcake party outfit. I just love all the bright colors and the bazillion ideas that come along with any kind of sweet shoppe theme! Of all the details, the toothbrush favor was my favorite! I thought that was the perfect addition to the candy buffet! :)

Baby Bottle Favor Tags

I made these fun favor tags for a dear friend throwing a baby shower recently. The momma-to-be wasn't sure if a boy or girl was in her future so we made some gender neutral tags to coordinate with the colors of the baby bottle favor. Add some sweet treats, a cute tag and you have a yummy favor for all your guests. With the last name "Beverage," the baby bottle favor was all the more perfect! :)

Baby Shower Invitations... Classic Crib and Chandelier

These invitations were designed for my sweet friend Lyndsay who is expecting her first baby in January. They are not finding out the gender of their baby so this chocolate and cream invite goes along with the colors of her nursery. Lyndsay is the most beautiful, classy southern girl so I did my best to design an invite that would match her style just perfectly.

Garden Party Collection

It's never too early to start planning that spring birthday party! Here is a closer look at the garden party collection....

Invitations and coordinating return address labels available...

Banners hung on bright pink, lime or yellow tulle...
This 11x14 sign makes the perfect welcome to your birthday garden. Punch two holes at the top and attach it to a garden flag holder with some gingham ribbon. Place it in your front yard or flower pots and your guests will know they have arrived! Favor Tags can be printed on 100lb. cardstock and attached to your favor or printed as stickers...
The coordinating signs are perfectly sized to attach to a paint stick and then use as food labels or decor...

Add these stickers to a mix of "garden grub" goodies such as trail mix, pretzel sticks and gummy worms...

Show your appreciation with some coordinating thank you notes...
