Having a baby? Planning a Baby Shower? Need a theme? How about "Ready to Pop"? We just helped plan a "Ready to Pop" Baby Shower and the possibilities were endless. The candy station featured all candies that POP or have POP in them including popcorn, pop rocks, lollipops, popcorn, and rice krispies pop. The decor, signs and tags all had polka dots to go with the theme. Theme colors were pink, green and brown.
We even got to design the game cards for the guests including Celebrity Babies, Baby Trivia, Baby Scramble Words, Candy Bars and Nursery Rhymes.
One of our favorite items at a Baby Shower are advice cards where the guests could write what they wanted to the new parents.
But for our most unique and fresh item? Baby Shower money!!! Money was earned by guests when they won any of the games played and answered questions correctly and these monies were used towards prizes at the end of the shower. These faux money were colorful, featured a girl silhouette, baby carriages, rattles and as a personal, finishing touch - a little phrase congratulating the happy couple as the security line along the side. Such a great idea!
It was a fun affair and so many people popped on by to be a part of the celebration.
Congratulations Kimberly and Mike!

Tractors and Airplanes and Scooters Oh My!!!! You never realize how many modes of transportation there is until you design for a transportation-themed party. The best part is, with so many types of transportation, the design possibilities were endless! We had so much fun with this party and got to do some new things that we have never done. We designed transportation cut-outs where guests were able to write notes to the birthday boy on these cute cut-outs. It was great decor with all the different colors and ended up as a keepsake for baby Antonio to read when he grows up.
The monogram designed for the party featured a red airplane and was used all around the party, from the food and snacks, to the floral centerpieces, to the napkin rings. The parents wanted a playful banner so instead of anything digitally produced they made their own signs and used crayons instead of markers for a more youthful and playful look. It also featured an airplane, vespa and a banner flag for Antonio's name.
The party had two blue color schemes of powder blue and cobalt blue as well as red. The floral centerpieces were yellow to give the table setting a pop of color. They were white flowers in glass jars with slices of lemons and oranges surrounding the interior to give it a refreshing look for this hot summer day.
The parents wanted it to be a themed party but wanted it to still be simplistic and intimate. All in all, it was a beautiful family affair with the little bundle of joy as the center of attention. Happy First Birthday Antonio!

We had the pleasure of working with Irene and Erez on their travel themed wedding. Initially, they were interested in our boarding pass place cards. As we were in the process of designing, they wanted to also design a custom monogram that featured their own fictional airline company with their wedding colors of blue, red and gold. Once that was designed and selected, Irene and Erez decided they wanted us to design their programs and menus as well. Following the theme, we designed passport-styled programs with passport entry and exit stamps on the interior to replicate a true passport. For the menus, we made them look like in-flight menus that are found on flights. We had so much fun!
Irene and Erez did a brilliant job in carrying their theme out throughout all aspects of their wedding and were kind enough to share pictures with us. They had a very detailed and perfectly executed wedding cake that were luggages and included little details like passports, luggage tag, and camera. For their guestbook, they made postcards that coordinated with each destination table name and their monogram where guests wrote on those. In the end, it became a beautiful keepsake in an album.
The new trend these days is to have a photo booth, but Irene and Erez created a green screen area where their guests could take pictures and it ended up being their personal airplane boarding in the background! How smart, fun, and ingenious is that?
On their beautiful place settings, they had the in-flight menus, a luggage tag party favor, and the postcard to write a note to the couple. The table names were nice and simple with destination city names and complimented well with the centerpiece and table setting.
All in all, we had such a great time working on their wedding and absolutely loved how it turned out. Their attention to detail was impeccable and guests surely are still talking about it.
Congratulations Irene and Erez! Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day!

It's always nice working on Baby Showers because there always seems to be an indescribable ambience of love and happiness while working on them. The idea of creating a design for a precious little baby that has yet welcomed him or herself to the world. It's magic. It really is a miracle and we always get so excited for our clients and parents-to-be.
For this invitation, our parents-to-be asked for a stork with pink, green and brown colors. They wanted a subtle look that wasn't too much of one color. We also designed our signature strip address labels for them to match the invitations and placed in chocolate brown envelopes.
We are so happy and excited for our couple and are now working on designs for their Baby Shower... FUN! Stay tuned!

One thing that we love about our job is that we are constantly challenged with new, unique and clever visions that our clients have. Recently, we had to create a birthday invitation for two young adults who were combining their parties but had two diffent themes. Jake wanted his theme to be "Avengers" with the main icons which is totally the hype right now. Kayla wanted her theme to be Parisian, with the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomph, damask designs and purple, gray and white colors. They are two completely different looks and we wanted to make sure we executed both visions, but at the same time, exhibiting both equally and allowing them to blend into one cohesive invitation and style. What do you think? We had so much fun doing it and hope it was a great preview to the fun that was in store! Happy 13th Birthday Kayla and Jake!

Vino Collection which features grape vines and leaves and is truly a timeless look. From the beautiful invitations she custom designed, to the place cards, programs, menus and party favor tags for the Big Day, to the Thank You Cards after the event. It was so much fun working with her and we thank her for sharing her beautiful photos and memories with us. The wedding looked absolutely amazing, and the bride and groom were perfection. It was elegant, romantic and timeless. We wish you and Michael a lifetime filled with love and happiness!
