Two of my friends are expecting babies this month, and I recently got to help host showers for each of them!  We used the same venue for both moms, and I love how we were able to make each event delightfully unique through our decorations and printables!

First was a shower for our little MVP! I designed the invite, a banner, stickers, napkin rings, and party favor boxes for this fun theme… The color scheme coordinated with his nursery and Daddy was a football player–so that made it easy to come up with a design!  We wanted to make it “all boy” and still keep an elegant touch for Mom at the same time.. So we did things like use a glass punch bowl next to a sporty water jug to create that juxtaposition of asthetic.  I couldn’t be more thrilled with how it turned out!

Here is my Party Preview:

And the Party Premier:

And just a few more details–some bows for Mommy’s chair and a ball-cage for the gifts:

THEN, a couple of weeks later, we hosted this owl-themed shower for our much-anticipated baby girl!  I had a HOOT (sorry!  had to say it!) creating the save the date, invitation, toppers, notecards, hostess gift tags, and thank you cards.

Here’s a glimpse of the party:

Thanks to Viridian Design Studio for their help in pulling off the perfect cupcake tower!  And I can’t tell you how much fun I had with a sweet friend creating the table centerpieces.  But, one of my favorite elements was an idea from one of the other hostesses, a message board for friends to leave notes for this little blessing!!

What a joy to be a part of each of these special events!


I recently teamed up with Viridian Design Studio in planning a party for Hadliegh and Isaac Lankford, the two children of Jennifer from Portraits By Jenn. Aside from wanting to spoil two of our favorite toddlers, we really wanted to showcase the many, many possibilities a client has with their digital files. Stickers can be used on favors, candy, as napkin rings, and so much more. Once the initial design is created for the invitation, developing a coordinating banner or sign, gift tags, thank you cards, or food and drink labels is a breeze! It’s very affordable for me to make as many add-ons as possible for you to have an event full of personal touches without going bankrupt. Here are the printable files I designed for the Lankford Party:

And I couldn’t be more pleased with how beautifully these projects printed out!  We had the party pool-side at Comanche Trace on a perfect, sunny evening. Viridian Design, with their fun and creative event-planning team, used my Suess printables to put together an adorable, bright, and fun but also clean and polished party.  This event is one both the parents and their children will never forget!  Jennifer took some beautiful pictures of the scene, and I’m thrilled to share them with you now!

I really appreciate someone who knows exactly what he/she is looking for.   Don’t worry about feeling bossy if you have detailed opinions about what you want—I won’t ever be offended by a straight-forward customer!  Recently I’ve had three clients who knew the design they wanted, and I think we were able to create each project according to their own needs with great success!  But guess what?  If you’re a little less certain when it comes to the creative process, don’t let that scare you away from trying to design a unique look for yourself.  I’ll work with you until we can get it right!

My first Design-on-Demand was for a bridesmaid who helped plan a Shower Invitation for a Winter Wedding later this month.  She wanted to use black, silver, and white; she asked for a clean a design with snowflakes in the background; and she desired something swirly on the front.  Easy enough!  This client actually met with me and we sketched out the look together.  The next day I had her images ready for her to print.  On a metallic paper, I think we came up with just the look she desired:

Next is a mommy-friend who wanted Personalized Cards for herself and for her daughter. She knew the pattern and color scheme she wanted, and a font style. The best part about choosing to make your customized stationary this way is that you have the digital file and can print more cards when ever needed.  You don’t have to worry about your design running out of stock or being discontinued!

Lastly, this group of hostesses had several Baby Shower Invitations they liked different parts of.  They sent me links to sites with things they liked and we were able to create a Design-on-Demand card that blended everything together perfectly.  The coordinating sticker was all me, though!  😉  Sometimes when I start one project, another instantly pops into my mind, and I don’t feel like I’m done until I complete both!  Who knows, your design might be the next one that inspires me to make a bonus freebie!
