{REAL LIFE PARTIES} Puppy Party for 4-year-old Brylee

Our niece Brylee just turned the big FOUR! Hard to believe that that little stinker is four already =)  Her favorite animals are puppy dogs, so when it came time for her to pick a theme for her party, she chose to have a puppy party. And it couldn't have turned out any cuter!

The color scheme of the party included pink, lime green, turquoise and orange. We created the birthday banner with patterned paw print paper and the party's colors.

Mikaelah handled all the decorative details! She hand painted the letters spelling "FOUR" and added the puppy dog accents. Here is a look at the mantel display, which also includes a Banana Lala decorative "4" sign that says "Puppy love."

Mikaelah also created this felt wreath for the front door. Too cute!

Next up, the table display, complete with hand-cut dog bone placemats for all the kids at the party. I just love all the little dog toys scattered about (don't worry, they are brand new dog toys that hadn't been played with yet!)

And each child got to "adopt" a puppy to take home. They could even add a ribbon collar and leash if they wanted =)

We think Brylee's party turned out super cute, and it was so much fun seeing all the little doggy details all come together for her big day. Happy 4th Birthday, Brylee!

Thanks for looking!

{Operation Baby Shower} Name Tags and Banner for Bee-Themed Shower

We recently shared on our Facebook page how we contributed some custom items for a very worthy baby shower. Operation Baby Shower was set up by a military wife and mother out in Nevada. On their Army base, Farrah saw the need for seven expectant military wives to have a joint baby shower, being that they were all far away from family members back home. 

We couldn't have been more excited about being able to help out these mothers.

When Farrah told me that the joint baby shower was going to have a bee theme, I just ran with some ideas. And I love how they turned out. Check out these custom name tags, created for each "Mommy-to-Bee" and the new mommy to wear during the shower.

We also created this "Welcome Babies" honeycomb banner for decoration at the shower.


The following video is from a local Reno, Nevada news station, interviewing the woman who organized it all - while she HERSELF is expecting as well! What a great story, and we were beyond happy to help.

Be sure to look for a close-up of our "Welcome Babies" bee-themed banner!

Thanks for looking!

{MONSTER HIGH PARTY} Custom Banner for Lucie's 6th Birthday

I'm going to start off this post by mentioning that I know very little about Monster High. I have a 3-year-old (who's actually almost 4 now), and she's not into Monster High. She is still very much interested in Disney Princesses, Barbies and baby dolls and Strawberry Shortcake. But I'm sure she's not that far from knowing everything about this Monster High stuff.

Well, Lucie likes Monster High. Or, at least, her mom, Julie, says Lucie thinks she likes Monster High, because all of her friends do. =)

Lucie decided to celebrate her big 6th birthday with a Monster High themed party, and we were happy to create something to go along with the theme ... after a little research on my part. Here's a look at what I came up with.

The patterns and colors used for the dolls are actually really neat together! Pinks, purples, turquoise, black and white in patterns of zebra, argyle, plaid and stripes.

I hear that Lucie had a great party! Thanks, Julie, for letting us create this for her birthday party!

Thanks for looking!
