The Tassel Was Worth the Hassle!

There is nothing more rewarding than celebrating after years and years of studying and hard work.  To say good bye to exams! To go on to the next chapter of your life. The celebration is bitter sweet in emotions but all fun with loved ones!

We topped off the party with the following items:

  1. A “Thank You” fan which came in real handy on this hot Summer day in LA
  2. Candy Party Favors with custom tag
  3. “Life is Sweet” Sweets Table Signage
  4. Custom Water Bottle Labels
  5. Jenga Guest Sign-in Table and memorable keepsake
  6. Other miscellaneous signage

Congratulations to all the graduates of Class of 2017 and especially to Jakob!

 

Little Mermaid Birthday Party

We got to work on a beautiful Little Mermaid birthday party for a special little girl, Ella, who turned 3. She loves the Little Mermaid and the color purple, so we went with Ariel’s signature red and teal color and added in a glittery purple to the mix.

The invitation was special to us because we tried something new and thought out of the box, or the treasure chest in this case! The invitation featured a scallop shape and was mounted on beautiful purple glitter cardstock. Ariel and the banner were raised as pop-ups to add dimension to the invitation.

The biggest hit at the party was the backdrop we created. It featured individual scalloped papers layered onto the wall and topped with a large image of Ariel and her friends and instead of the usual banners we do, we went ahead and cut out each individual letter of “Happy 3rd Birthday Ella” directly onto the backdrop.

We made another backdrop that featured the words “Eat, Drink, Be a Mermaid” and added balloons and draped it with our seashell garlands.

We also made another photo op area with an arched balloon installation which was the main entrance to the party area as well.

For party favor giveaways, we made tags for bubble wands for the kids. The tags featured the mermaid quote, “Be a mermaid and make some waves”.

We also designed additional monograms to use for table decor, cupcake toppers and party favors.

Last but not least, we made food signs and signage for the party with clever names that related back to the Little Mermaid theme. Click on the images to see a slideshow.

Wedding Invitation By the Sea

We got to work on a beautiful wedding with an Ocean Theme because the wedding was going to take place on the oceanfront.  They wanted to incorporate seashells, pearls and have fuchsia and ivory accent colors. This is the invitation suite that we came up with.  It featured sand dollar cutouts and pearl embellishments on shimmer opal cardstock.

The Save the Date Card included beautiful conch shell, sand dollar, and seashell cutouts to bring a little dimension to a normal Save the Date Card and to set the tone.

The invitation had a beautiful pearl wraparound with a sand dollar cut out in the center which brought a uniqueness to the invitation and a nice change from traditional seashells.

Congratulations to Erica and David and may you live happily ever after.

Firetruck Birthday Party Fired Up

We got to do a Firetruck/Fireman Themed Birthday Party in all it’s red, black and gold!  It was fun channeling our inner fireman in us to get this little boy feeling like a hero that he will probably become.  We designed a custom backdrop with banner, firetrucks, fire flames and ladder.  The table consisted of happy hour finger foods and showcased the little boy’s personalized invitation that we did for him.  The invitation was done chalkboard style with firetruck, cones, alarm and fire flame icons to match the theme. Happy Birthday Avery!

Snow White Birthday Party

There really is nothing that beats bold primary colors.  Our Snow White Birthday Party is probably one of our favorite parties (yet we probably say that about all of them) because the colors just came together so well.
The invitations featured this beautiful metallic blue petal enclosure from Envelopments that was pure elegance on top of the red and gold ornate ribbon we chose to wrap around it.
The party included custom signs, menu, table numbers, escort cards, party favor tags, and banner.  It was bold and majestic for this special little one year old.

 

Pretty in Pink Cherry Blossoms Baby Shower

Sorry it took so long to get this post up.  This Baby Shower we did has gotten a lot of love and it was definitely one of our favorites.  Below are pictures to share the many many details that went into the planning and how it all came together.
Our clients were very hands on and did such a great job on the decor and desserts that we really can’t take all the credit.
Hand-made hanging pom poms floated above the dessert table that included Pretty in Pink desserts with our custom designed food signs.

 

 

 

We made a custom designed onesie “Sweet Baby Girl” Banner with the theme colors that accompanied the Oneside Designing Station for the guests.

We designed instructions for the Onesie station as well as the other activities and games for the baby shower and they were placed in simple elegant white frames.

 

Our clients made a beautiful wish tree with bird cutouts for the guests to write on and hang on a white tree accented with a bird cage next to it and a bird house hanging from the branches.  Our personalized sign is featured here with instructions for the guests.

 

Loofahs were the ingenious party giveaways that had a personalized tag with the saying “From our shower to yours” in it.  It was such a cute idea, and the colors were perfect to match with the party as well as looking like flowers.  Great find!

Another Baby Shower Game was guessing how many marshmallows were in the jar.  We supplied the personalized sign with instructions as well as the small tickets for each guest to fill out with their name and the guess.  I love how they added yellow and pink peeps to the mix rather than just the traditional marshmallows!

Another fun Baby Shower game was “Guess the Distance” to the length of the mommy’s tummy.  Here is another personalized instruction sign we did.

And how can we forget about the invitations we did for the party.  Before all the extreme “day-of” planning, there were the adorable diaper invitations! Not your dirty diapers but cute, feminine, pink diaper envelopments with diaper shaped invites enclosed in the bird and cherry blossom theme.
And here are more detail shots of the tables for you to enjoy.  Hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
