Look Whoo's One : Blue Owl Birthday Party

We recently celebrated our son Maxwell's first birthday! I planned a simple, short and SWEET party for him with an blue owl theme. The birthday boy had a fun-filled afternoon with family, new toys, and his very own cake!

The invitations I designed: "Blue Hoot Owl" birthday invitation

Maxwell wore a cute owl shirt that was custom-created by an etsy seller. I sent her the invitation image and she used fabrics to match his party colors.

The smash cake was a simple white frosted cake decorated with an adorable edible owl cake topper that came with matching edible letters and leaves - also from etsy!

Blue and green cupcakes for our guests were placed on faux wood chargers from Amazon.

I created owl themed cupcake toppers with round customized stickers that were adhered to cardstock and lollypop sticks. I used a 2" circle punch to shape the cardstock into circles.

Cake time! Time to smash the cake...topper!

Cari & Greg : Wedding Invitations

Cari loved the damask border wedding invitations I made for Kirsten & Patrick and wanted a similar look and style with her apple green, chocolate brown and ivory wedding colors. I am in love with this color scheme!

Cari's wedding invitations were designed in a portrait format, and we used a pocket card enclosure to display the invitation on the front panel and keep the enclosure cards neatly organized in the back pocket.

I designed coordinating mailing envelope and response envelope postage stamps in colors that contrasted the envelopes.

Congratulations to Cari and Greg who were married September 30th! Stay tuned for their gorgeous wedding day stationery accents.

Real Wedding : Jessica & Marc

Jessica and Marc's wedding took place at Shadowland on Silver Beach and was full of unique experiences and fun details that made it an unforgettable event for all. Jessica sent me the gorgeous photos that Jennifer Mayo captured from their June wedding day, and I am excited to share them with you!

The wedding day stationery included champagne-colored ceremony programs in a booklet style, tented menu cards that doubled as table cards, each table named after a different ride or site from the original Silver Beach Park. My favorite detail was ticket-style escort cards in bright yellow, pink and purple for the three different dinner choices. I looked at vintage carousel tickets for design inspiration. I also designed the wedding monogram that was used as the gobo light on the dance floor, and also on their photo booth strips. After the wedding, photo thank you cards were also created.
