Sweet, Sparkly ... Sixteen!

Custom Glitter Monogram Cake Topper + "16s" to Hang from the Chandelier

Oooh! Sixteenth Birthdays are the Best! (And, even better with a little Sparkle!) So, when Natalie Meeks turned 16, it had to be a little extra special for this fun-loving, always-fashionable, super-sweet girl. She was gladly welcomed home from summer camp with lots of happy people, happy gifts ... and we were thrilled to be a part of the celebration with a giant "16" for the front door, sparkly "16s" to hang from the chandelier, and a the ultimate glitter cake topper in true Southern monogram style. Ahh ... we love (l.o.v.e.) sparkle! Happy Birthday, Natalie ... and MANY more!
All glittered items are custom made ...

Happy 30th Birthday, Nichol!

One of my most very favorite friends in the whole world is Nichol ... who also happens to be my right-hand gal at the studio and the one who keeps me organized. She has the best sense of humor and always makes me laugh through any stress! Adore her! So, of course, for her 30th Birthday we had to do something a little extra special!

We created special "30 Sucks" Suckers (which, 30 is actually fantastic, by the way!) as party favors - tootsie pops wrapped in colorful tissue with fun ribbon and custom-created tags (she loves polka dots, so we did layered polka dots on the tag!)

And, of course, we had had to have a GLITTERY cake topper! We heart glitter ... especially pink glitter ... and custom created this one just for her special day! 

... which we then put on top of yummy birthday cake flavored Rice Krispie Treats!
To make these :: Simply add 1/3 cup of dry cake mix to your butter/marshmallow mixture. Then, add your Rice Krispies (and sprinkles!) ... and voila!

Happy, Happy Birthday to Nichol ... and MANY more!

First Birthday ... with all the Rhymes!

We love a party ... and even more, we love a THEME! From start to finish, the little details are our favorite. At the beginning of the invitation planning stage, we love to hear how the client envisions their party ... then, develop invitations that will give the best first impression of their party in their guests' mailboxes. As soon as the invitations are mailed, we are planning all of the little extra party details that we can do to make the party cohesive and give it a completely custom look.

So, when one of our favorite clients (who is totally a kindred spirit and quickly became a bff!) said that she wanted to do a "Mother Goose" theme for her daughter's First Birthday ... our creativity started bubbling!
(After all, what is better than a theme full of our favorite childhood book and endless rhymes!?!)

Here are a few of the details ... Enjoy!

xxox, natalie

The Invitations
We did them as a "book" ... and even had custom stamps made to match!

The Party Entrance
We love this idea for the front door of the party!
A chic umbrella with a "humpty dumpty" and gorgeous flowers!
We made a little "Rain, Rain, Go Away ... It's Louise's First Birthday" banner for it.

The Party Decor
Love the mix of children's chairs for the kids' table ... along with Mother Goose themed books and Madame Alexander dolls. And, of course, the Lilly Pulitzer pom poms are always a favorite!

The Birthday Cake
This adorable cake was created to coordinate with the invitations and party details ...
and we loved making this cake topper!
Of course,we totally glittered the cake topper and added lots of ribbons in the party colors.

The Birthday Girl
Oh, could she be any cuter?!? Someone is ready for their cake!
We loved (loved!) creating this custom designed party hat for her special day. Pink, glittered and with fabulous lime green silk ribbon.

The Napkins
We did several different napkin rings for these adorable polka dot napkins!

The Lunch Box
Love the idea of giving each child at the party their own little lunch box ...
which included a Mother Goose themed menu (of course!)
Little Boy Blue(berry) Muffins
Little Miss Muffet Curd (yogurt)
Cow Jumped Over the Moon Milk

The Menu
Of course, the rest of the menu was just as adorable ::
Cupcakes (with custom-made picks!)
Three Little Pigs in a Blanket
Little Boy Blue Muffins
Twinkle Twinkle Fruit (with custom-made star picks!)
Humpty Dumpty Quiche
Hush-a-Bye Bellinis
Jack & Jill Water

What a fun, adorable party! Happy Birthday, Louise ... and MANY more!
