flapjacks & lumberjacks // luke's 4th birthday




i was so excited when ashlee contacted me for luke's party, especially after i heard her ideas for the theme! we went with a lumberjack-shaped invitation, kraft envelopes and lots of red & black buffalo plaid! for the party, we added on thank you cards, food tents, an "axe-throwing contest" poster, and some stickers for the trail mix bar. what an awesome party, and did you get a look at that log cake?!

batter up! // madden's 1st birthday



madden's mom wanted to do a baseball theme for his 1st birthday, so we took our inspiration from a vintage ticket and styled the invitation similarly. we used red, navy and cream and paired the paper goods with kraft envelopes. madden's mom was on the fence about including a photo on the invitation, so we decided to create a cute little baseball card to include in each envelope! for the party we did some large prints, pennant banners & favor stickers, and his mom did an amazing job with the rest!

tassels // paige's 1st birthday



paige's mom wanted the imitations to reflect her decor for the party: tassel garlands and mixed patterns in pink, blush and gold. we paired the invitation with a bubblegum pink envelope and made some fun signs, stickers and poster with paige's stats for the big day!

this tassel design is available in my etsy shop here!

little sweetheart // gray's 2nd birthday




gray's birthday coincides with valentine's day, so his mom wanted to throw a heart-themed party that was still all BOY. we went with a red, black and turquoise color scheme using hearts and arrows in a tattoo style. after the kids went home, gray's mom & dad (who was also celebrating his birthday!) headed out with some friends for a pub crawl, so we created some custom name badges that each guest wore on lanyards. hopefully no one needed to use them... ;)

tea time with eloise // baby shower




i have had the privilege of working on vanessa's bridal shower, wedding, holiday cards, and now her baby shower! since her baby girl will be named eloise, her friends and family threw her a "tea time with eloise" themed baby shower, based on the "eloise at the plaza" books. i love the bold black and white stripes with the hot pink and touches of gold! this shower looks like it's out of a magazine...  i'm so glad i could be a part of it!
