{New Baby Boy} Welcome Home Banner for Nathan

Little babies. Oh, the little looks they give, the smiles, the snuggle time, the sleepless nights ... gotta love everything about a newborn baby!

A customer requested a "Welcome Home" banner for newborn Nathan. Although we hadn't yet ventured into making a banner like this, it's been something we had been wanting to dive into. Here are some photos of what we created for Nathan. Well, more like Nathan's family, because I'm pretty sure he won't remember the banner. At all. =)

Congratulations to the new parents! Having a new baby is such a wonderful blessing.

{Wedding Banner} "Just Married" in Turquoise, Purple and Light Gray

I think wedding season is in full swing again! We recently have had a lot of activity on our Etsy shop with requests for custom orders for "Just Married" and "Thank You" banners. It's a really neat opportunity to create something handmade and unique for a bride and groom. It really is a privilege. The banners we create for them will be forever remembered as a part of their wedding day. And so we feel honored.

We love working with brides to custom make a banner in their wedding colors. An Etsy customer, Jennifer, is approaching her wedding day and ordered a custom "Just Married" banner to coordinate with her colors of purple, turquoise, white and light gray. Here are several photos showing her custom banner.

Thank you, Jennifer, for allowing is to create this for your big day. Best wishes!

Happy Birthday, Princess Brookelyn! We recently created this sparkly ribbon topiary for her birthday, and it'a all about the Disney princesses and pinks and purples. Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Cinderella and more!
