I just finished some new invitations for a baptism, and I am really excited about how they turned out.They are printed on a cream-colored, textured card stock, and I continued a contrasting design on the back.I added them to my shop with some alternate color schemes.
I just found this awesome and simple tutorial for a streamer canopy from the Busy Budgeting Mama via Pinterest. Looks pretty, simple and would make a huge impact at a party, even in a big room.
Once the cookies were packed and delivered, Anthony and I went to a really fun wedding. There was an old Hollywood movie theme, and I worked with the bride on the escort cards. She asked for movie tickets, and I think they came out really great.They looked really cute standing up in popcorn!
I’m getting packed and heading to the Jersey Shore for the weekend with my aunts and cousins to celebrate my mom’s birthday. I’m so excited to spend the entire weekend with some of my favorite people in the world. I made some treat boxes for everyone to welcome them to the house yesterday, and I can’t wait to share them.
I found the red boxes at Michael’s – they are actually cupcake boxes that come with inserts, I just didn’t put the cupcake inserts in. I printed the tags with the same design that I used on the inserts, and tied them up with black satin ribbon.
I have a stockpile of clear bags and boxes for projects like this, so I filled boxes with Hershey’s Kisses and Swedish Fish, and bags with homemade Oatmeal Crasin Cookies and Twizzlers (my mom’s favorite).
My mom is having a big birthday soon, and we’re planning a girls’ weekend at the Jersey Shore with my aunts and cousins. I am sending out these invitations today with some info about the weekend (when to come, what to wear, what to bring).
The red heart-shaped cover was cut on my Silhouette, and I added the belly band to keep everything together.
There is a little bit of text on the inside, under the heart shape when the card is opened up.
The back of the card has all of the info about the weekend.
There are a few other details that I’m working on for the party – it is going to be lots of fun!
I also tried out using M&Ms as decoration on a simple vanilla layer cake. M&M cakes have been very popular on Pinterest lately, and it was a really simple way to make a plain cake special.
My next party is a bridal shower that my mom is throwing for her coworker this weekend. I just got and adorable wedding cake pan that I can’t wait to use.
