Postcard Love

Personalized weddings are expected these days. As brides continue to inspire other brides, details continue to become more personal. Save the date postcards are wonderful. They are less expensive to mail due to the postage stamp and no envelope. They are easy to hang on the fridge too!

Check out this postcard to be hand written to each guest asking them to save the date and join them as they tie the knot. My hand hurts already! Oh, and I love the monogram with the crown!

Sunny Save the Dates!

Who wouldn't love to get this fun save the date in their otherwise boring mailbox?! It might even inspire you to make a margarita after receiving this to enjoy while you book your flight to the beach! Drink umbrellas are a little symbol of fun in my world. I am also completely in love with the die cut flags I found on Etsy featuring names. I am trying to think of a reason why I need them.

Items featured:
3 Tiered Tea Stand
Name Flags
Flower Flags

First Birthday

A while back I shared my son's first birthday party invitations I designed. Since then, he has turned one and had a sunny, warm and fun first birthday party! Planning a party is so much less work than planning a wedding thankfully, but I did add quite a bit of a load on my plate in order to make these fun decorations. Here are some pictures from his party!

This was my favorite! This entry decor was designed using the same face I used on his invitation. If you missed the invitation post, here it is and I also re-posted the picture at the bottom.
I created the flag banner by cutting colorful card stock along with some printed flags and adhered them to orange ribbon.
Cupcake toppers are an easy way to personalize decorations. It is also much less work than trying to mold and create fondant animals!

Even with the best intentions for gummy bear grabbers, that little shovel barely was used. Hands must be more efficient.

The oversize confetti on the table was cut with a circle hole punch using paper remnants from the flag ribbons.
Notice the party hat hanging on his high chair? He refused to wear it. Doesn't he understand I made it just for him and cut out that little lion?! :) The wrap around his tray was created using a lei.

Happy Birthday to my one year old!

4 Years


It's true! By the way, he also shoved cake in my face for the record. We both tried to fake the other out that we wouldn't... and then we did. It doesn't feel like it was 4 years ago when I met my hubby at the alter. It was a beautiful, hot sunny day. Since our wedding, we've been lucky with warm sunny weather every anniversary weekend. This Saturday is going to be a gorgeous day! I'm thankful for that since this Saturday is our son's first birthday party!

I wanted to share my cake topper with you. This is one of the most meaningful pieces to date from our wedding. Before my husband and I were even engaged, we were browsing the Christmas section at Target together. Okay, I made him come with me to look at the Christmas decor. To my surprise, he grabbed a Christmas ornament and suggested it would make a great cake topper. He told me how it looked like us as a couple. How thoughtful, how cute, I bought it without a thought. Because of the sincere and sweet place that cake topper/tree ornament came from it means so much to me. After our wedding, I crafted it back into a Christmas ornament and every year it hangs on our tree as a gentle reminder of our special day.
