I've been posting a lot of wedding invitations lately, so to change things up, I thought I would share one of our brand new cards! The inside greeting is "Miss you." It's available in our Etsy shop now!

What I'm listening to

I've been listening to a lot of the new Maritime album lately. It's pretty good, classic Maritime. I also really like the arrows on the album cover, I've been into arrows lately... Is that weird?

Little Man Party: Final Part 4

Well, this is the final part of Beckett's party. We set up a photo booth area in the house, so folks could take a photo! They all turned out really funny, and we even had a big bucket o' props filled with top hats, ties, glasses & of course mustaches on sticks.

Another great photo booth pic.

Of course my favorite part of Beckett's party was probably the stationery! I know I already posted photos of his invitations, but here is another one, along with the thank you card that included a photo of a mustache Beckett!

Thanks for letting me share the details of Beckett's party! I had so much fun planning the party, and can't wait for next year, I already have a few ideas... !

Little Man Party: Part 3

We had some super delicious cupcakes in addition to the cake, I made little paper bow ties to stick in each of them as well.

The cake was amazing! I loved how it turned out, complete with fondant ties and chocolate mustaches. (The cake & cupcakes were made by Extra Special Touch Bakery)

Little Man Party: Part 2

So, here is installment #2 of the birthday party bonanza....

Here is a close up of one of the No. 1 ribbons I made. I really liked the way they turned out and were pretty easy to make!

Ok, so this might be one of my favorite things about the party. Adam HAND DREW 30 different mustaches on all the cups. Yes, not only did he hand draw all of them, but he found 30 DIFFERENT mustaches to illustrate and name. It was pretty impressive. He got a little creative with them as he was getting towards the end. And he says he's not creative. I would beg to differ!

I set out a box of chocolate cigars, which looked pretty real! They added a nice touch. I also had necktie napkins, which were so cool! If you tucked them into your shirt, it looked like you were wearing a tie. I also placed old glass jars around the house and filled them with animal crackers (ya know, for the kids, since this is a kids party....)

I was really excited when I thought of this....I labeled all the water bottles for folks with the phrase, 'Wet your whistle'.

Next up I'll have photos from our photo booth, the cake, & my favorite: the stationery

Little Man Party: Part 1

Well, it's hard to believe, but Beckett turned 1 over the weekend! To celebrate, we threw a big bash for our little man. I had so much fun planning the party and may have went a little over the top, but come on, you only turn 1 once! I'd love to share some of the details of the party!

First up, the decorations....

I made a bunch of paper poms and hung them from the ceiling in the living room, as well as paper flags and hung them above the dessert table.

I wanted to keep in theme, so I made a necktie 'Happy Birthday Beck!' banner, which I think turned out really cool! I loved adding little details around the house that people could discover.

One of my favorite things were the felt mustaches on sticks & handmade bow ties on sticks I made. The bow ties turned out really cool and were super easy to make. I had them set out so guests could easily grab 'em!

I made a silhouette Beckett portrait and put it in an old frame and put it on the dessert table. It was really easy to make, and I loved the vibe it added to the little man theme!

I also made a time line of photos of Beckett from all 12 months and hung them in order across the bookshelf. I also made these really cool 'No. 1' ribbons and hung them around the house, I loved the way they turned out!

Up next, more photos of the party details, along with the food!
