{Wedding Banner} Just Married in Burnt Orange and Turquoise

Turquoise (along with all shades of blue, pretty much) is my favorite color. So naturally, I was excited to do some browsing for turquoise patterns for Jen's custom "Just Married" banner. And paired with burnt orange ... just gorgeous, if you ask me!

She isn't tying the knot until October of this year, so she's doing great by getting things together waaaay ahead of time. {And that's VERY admirable!}

Etsy feedback from Jen: The sign looks beautiful! They took the time to convo with me about the color and design that I wanted for my wedding!!!

Thanks, Jen! And thanks, everyone, for looking!


{Baby Shower} Shades of Pink for Baby Kate

Christy, one our great customers on Etsy, recently came to us looking for a pink banner to use for decoration at an upcoming baby shower. She had seen a listing for a pink and brown "It's a Girl" banner at our Etsy shop, but she wanted to customize it with just pinks. And we love to customize orders!!

We just love how it turned out with the two shades of pink, along with the black and white sheer polka dot ribbon.

Thanks for letting us create this for you, Christy!


{Wedding Banner} For a Good Old Fashioned Texas BBQ

Don and Vanessa will be tying the knot in late May, and all their family and friends plan to gather the next day for a good old fashioned Texas barbecue! {Sounds like SO much fun!}

So a while back, Mary Beth contacted us to create two custom banners to hang as decoration for the post-wedding day get-together. She loved the look of the red bandanna print along with twine and raffia accents. "Just Hitched" and "Don and Vanessa" were the two matching banners that we created for the bride and groom.

Thank you, Mary Beth, for letting us create this for you! And (early) congratulations to the happy couple!

{Real Life Parties} Monster Party for Landon!

Our nephew, Landon, recently turned 8 ... EIGHT! {Feels like he's still the little kiddo we once knew!}

Well, he's all grown up now, and this year he had a big Monster Party at a local indoor pool to celebrate with all his friends and family.

We created a Happy Birthday banner to coordinate with the party's theme and colors. His mother and our sister-in-law, Chaddie, made the monster cake, and his dad and our brother, Jonah, made the monster cupcakes. {See, baking and decorating runs in the family!}

LOVING this cake. Way cool!

How sweet ... Landon even let little sis Brylee sit next to him. Love these kids! They are so awesome!

 And here's the birthday boy!

Landon, you had one awesome party! Happy birthday, and we love you! ... you know, in that kind of way that embarrasses you in front of all your birthday party friends ... You're the coolest kid we know!

Thanks, everyone, for dropping by and looking!
