Gingerbread Party – Another Happy Customer

Last month my wonderful customer all the way from Australia sent me these photos from her daughter’s third birthday party. Jem contacted me to create a custom Gingerbread Party printable set. The only instructions were pink gingham with touches of green and most of all girly. After a few tries we came up with this darling set for Evie’s Big Day.

Lemonade Party {as featured on Amy Atlas}

Excuse me for one second while I jump up and down {and scream}…AMY ATLAS!   I still can’t believe it!!!!  Just a month ago I told my soon to be sister-in-law to start following her site for some wedding ideas beacuse she has the BEST  dessert table inspiration.  And now, my Sassy little girl’s fourth birthday party is featured, crazy. {Excuse all the explination points too, I can’t controll myself!!}  Okay, now that I have gotten that out of my system, on to the party.

Lemonade Stand Birthday

Like only my mini-me could, my daughter picked the theme out last year ~ the day after her third birthday.  I was waiting for her to say Dora or a Princess Party but I got “Mom, next year I want a Lemomlade Party”.  What? Love it!   I had so much fun creating all the printables and putting together the whole event. The photos turned out gorgeous, thanks to my dear friend, Monica at Andary Studio.  I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed planning the party for my sassy little girl.

Lemonade Party Dessert Table

I decided to keep things classic, using the brick on our house for the backdrop , clean white linens and white stands for all the goodies.   I made the cake pops with the help of my two kiddies {they were mainly taste testers} and Bakerella’s fabulous book.  And used our local bakery for the cupcakes.

I wanted the table to focus on the Lemonade theme so I did limited amount of treats.  I had found the plastic pink and yellow jugs and glass containers for adding a pop of color.  I had the glass jars from the jam I was planning on canning last year , and the striped straws came from the wonderful girls at the Bakers Confection.

Each “Customer” received his/her own box of party goods, filled with lots of back to school supplies, since her party was the week before school started.

I purchased the plain white gable boxes at Oriental Trading and embellished them with striped pattern paper and I used the printable food label on sticker paper as a Thank You Tag.

Chocolate Factory Party

I’m going to be playing catch up for the next couple of weeks.  Considering it has been about four months since my last post, I have a lot to fill you in on.  First up is my adorable nieces first birthday party (the Chocolate Factory one I hinted at a while back).

It was so much fun and everything turned out perfect, even the weather.  The only thing I didn’t account for was the fact that it was at a hall, meaning no windows and no beautiful sunshine to captures those photos.  {I should have borrowed a flash}

I created all kinds of goodies for this party and my sister-in-law did an amazing job putting everything together.

Barbie Doll Inspired Birthday Party Theme

I have been fairly busy with custom orders lately and I can’t wait to share all of them.
First up is an adorable Barbie Inspired Birthday theme that I created for a wonderful friend. Her daughter is turning 5 at the end of the month and she is having the local bakery make her the traditional “Barbie in a Cake”.
{Picture from cakes.com }
Barbie and I go way back (well, not that far back since I believe I played with Barbie’s until I was 12…maybe 13). I started with a version of the Barbie face silhouette and added items from there. Originally I was thinking the traditional pink and black, but since it’s spring time my friend suggested adding yellow and other bright colors. Here are some of the items, I am so happy with how it turned out.
The Barbie theme will be available mid April 2011 (right after I finish up the Chocolate Factory theme). However, if you are interested in your own Barbie theme party before then contact me and I can set up a custom listing for you in Etsy.
Thanks for visiting!
