A favorite things party invitation

9th Jan 2018

Have you heard of a Favorite Things party? Recently, a customer requested I customize one of my mason jar bridal shower invitations for this type of event. It’s such a sweet idea and a great way to celebrate a birthday or just for a fun girls night! Basically you set a price limit and everyone brings a (specified quantity) of one of their favorite things! And everyone leaves with each other’s favorite things! I think I’d bring either my favorite Amlactin body lotion recommended by my dermatologist (it’s amazing) or for a kitchen theme it would definitely be a kitchen […]

You are My Sunshine Rustic Sunflower 1st Birthday Party

6th Oct 2016

I can’t believe my youngest is One!  As with all of my kiddos I started thinking about her 1st birthday party early on.  Emmie is such a happy little girl and sunflowers seemed a perfect theme for our little sunshine’s October birthday! This invitation (from Sunnyside Print & Party of course!) incorporates the rustic elements as well as vintage sunflowers and I love that I got to show offer 4 of my favorite photos of her 1st year. This coordinating 1st birthday poster noting her height and weight, her favorite things and milestones is also by Sunnyside Print & Party […]

There is something so magical about a snow globe, and these Winter Wonderland invites are no exception!  My little guy was a January baby, and I have a new little nephew on the way this January.  Perfect for a winter ONEderland themed celebration, or even if your child is older, the birthday invitation can be customized for any age and winter theme.  I can design them with any background color you like, and can make most any photo work to create your own custom snow globe.    Versions for baby and bridal showers also available!    

Movie Poster Baby Birth Announcements

11th Apr 2014

I recently had the pleasure of putting together a version of this design for my new little nephew, William and I just adore how it turned out!  The idea of a movie poster birth announcement is nothing new, but I set out to make mine a little different from what is currently available… giving them a slightly vintage, elegant feel. The colors and overall look of the announcement are completely customized around your little one’s photo.  With sweet and fun “reviews” like “You will fall in love at first sight..” and “A must see for 2014!” these announcements are sure […]

Camo Shower Invitations and Save the Dates

17th Aug 2013

The Hunt is Over!  I just love these camouflage designs, especially when they are accented with bright feminine colors.  (each listing includes a color chart — you can choose from over 100+ colors or request something custom) I originally came up with the design a few years ago as a special request for a bride to be’s save the date. These are still one of my favorite designs, and camo anything seems to be super in right now, probably thanks to the Duck Dynasty family!  Whom I adore by the way…

Martinelli Vintage Wedding Favors

30th May 2013

 I can’t tell you how excited I was to find a four pack of these little Martinelli apple juice bottles at my local Walmart. They are 10oz glass bottles and are absolutely adorable! I think they’d make a lovely little wedding or shower favor. They’ve been sitting in my pantry for a while so this morning while taking pictures of my Peach Mason Jar Wedding Invites, I printed some matching 2″ party circles on cardstock, punched them out with my 2″ scallop punch and attached them to the little apple juice jars. So cute!  If you can’t find these bottles […]
