A Sweet Cupcake Birthday Party

Remember how I posted about the DIY balloon wreath tutorial on How Does She? Um… just WAIT until you see how cute it turned out for a fabulous client of ours, Holly. She matched the balloons to her party and it turned out ADORABLE!

Holly contacted us about our sweet shop invitations. She loved our bubblegum machine invitation, but wanted to feature cupcakes for her invitation. She was inspired by the (ADORABLE) smocked dress that she bought for her daughter and loved the colors, so we customized the invitation for her and here is what resulted…

Cute, right?

Holly attempted (and way succeeded) the DIY tutorial on How Does She blog on how to create a balloon wreath. Makes me want to do one NOW!

She printed the logos that we designed for her and put it in the center of the balloon wreath. I LOVE this to greet the guests!

Here is the birthday girl in her adorable dress! I used to make smocked outfits for my boys – they are so beautiful and a true heirloom…
Her special table cloth that they had monogrammed for her 1st birthday – she will use it every year! How special is that!?

Here are the logos that Holly used to make water bottle wraps with…

Check out the cute favors that Holly got for all of the guests…. they are custom t-shirts with the colors from the party and she used the logo to tie as a favor tag….

This is what the shirt looks like for each girl. Precious, right!?

Cute decorations!

The birthday girl with some mouth watering cupcakes!

How adorable are these cookies!?

Then check out what the guests saw as they were leaving… another logo that we designed that says THANK YOU!

Holly – you did a wonderful job on this party! Thanks for sharing!

Lots of sweet invitations for your sweet party available in our shop!

Have you been to?

…. well, have you? How Does She is one of my top bookmarked sites because of the uniqueness of their posts! It is a blog run by 3 extraordinary women (and mothers!). They realized they were always asking “How does she do this, or how does she do that?” when it comes to throwing perfect parties, creative ways to keeping up a really healthy lifestyle (with even the pickiest eaters), or implementing new ideas for the family. I love how they have gathered so much talent and knowledge from women all over to create a “go to” resource blog that is FUN to read!
Some of my favorite posts so far have been:
I am TOTALLY going to make that for my next party!
and, oh! This one:
I am DYING to make these for my kids. I just stumbled upon it the other day. I love food trickery!

and because most of my “free time” is spent planning parties, I about died when I saw how CUTE this post was:
I am so looking forward to having a shower sometime soon… this will be top of my list to create!
How stinkin cute!?
If you haven’t, you must go find out HOW DOES SHE!?
