Mom Monday {Frozen Party Invites}


I am FINALLY getting around to sharing the details from Piper’s 4th birthday party, Frozen theme of course. Here is sneak peek at the invites and a few of the paper details from the party. There were these great Anna and Elsa silhouette letterpress coasters, and the invites were silver foil on blue card stock. There are so many fun details to share so stay tuned for next Monday where I will reveal more fun photos from the party.


Friday Fun {Happy Halloween!}


Happy Halloween my friends. Wishing you all a safe and fun one. Quite a few of you have asked about our Halloween traditions and how we handle the candy. We are sticking with the switch witch idea. So once Halloween is over Piper leaves her bag of candy out for the switch witch and in the morning a present is in it’s place. I also let her pick a treat (cupcakes this year) that I will make for her. I will use maple syrup and dates to sweeten them and that way she still gets a sweet treat for halloween. Would love to hear what your Halloween traditions are!


Mom Monday {Personalized Gifts with a Twist}


Personalized gifts have been definitely on trend for quite some time, but these gifts take personalization to a whole new level. What a fabulous gift these would make!


I absolutely adore these custom wooden dolls by Goose Grease. (spotted on the adorable Tori Hendrix’s instagram) These custom watercolor paintings by Diary Sketches on Etsy are divine. And of course the wildly popular Sophie and Illi dolls. All of these items are created from your descriptions and a provided photo!! How great is that?


The idea of creating jewelry from someone’s handwriting, like this one from Capuccine, is so sentimental, I just love it! And imagine as a child, drawing a creature of your imagination and then receiving a plush doll of that very thing! This is exactly what Child’s Own does, how magical is that!?


These silhouette portraits from Nella Designs have a great graphic punch. And these bespoke hand drawn family portraits by Blanka Illustrations have such a great contemporary feel to them.

We used leather and strong graphics to bring a contemporary and masculine vibe to the event.

The printed napkins with calligraphed leather napkin rings were such a great touch. And don’t forget the custom coasters, do not disturb door sign and cigar station.
