Airplane Themed Baby Shower!

I'm so thrilled to share with you this airplane themed baby shower Thrive.ink worked over the weekend! I had so much fun dreaming up the details for this shindig!

The mommy-to-be told us that baby Robert's nursery is decorated in an airplane theme so we ran with that theme for the baby shower. I altered our airplane birthday party printables for a baby shower and I'm excited to announce that package is now in the shop as well! :)

We placed two welcome signs to direct guests into the right room. We put one outside and one on the door to the room we were in. :)

As guests walked in we asked them to sign the guestbook. I created the 'check-in' and 'baggage claim' signs as a cute, coordinating way to show guests where to sign the guestbook and to remind them to grab a favor on the way out!

We used the children's book The Little Airplane as the guestbook. I thought it would be a sweet touch to add to the airplane themed nursery and little Robert can enjoy the book once he learns to read. :)

The favors were handmade by the mommy-to-be! We packaged them up in white kraft paper gift bags and attached these matching favor tags.

After signing in, we directed guests to the gift table for "Luggage Dropoff." ;) For each event I do I create a custom gift list so that the guest of honor can easily see who brought what.

Also on the gift table was the diaper cake we made that I'm sure will come in handy the first few weeks baby Robert is home! :)

After all the guests arrived, they were welcomed to refreshments.

We snacked on ham and cheese croissants, veggies with ranch dip, goat cheese and crackers, spinach and artichoke dip with tortilla chips, chocolate dipped pretzels and Hershey's kisses.

Above the food table, I custom designed a banner for baby Robert. We also added coordinating patterned banners I made to all the tables.

The Hershey's Kisses were adorned with matching stickers. These stickers are part of each party package that we offer. :)

For drinks, we offered lemonade, iced tea and bottled water.

After we ate, our guest of honor cut into the cake and we got to enjoy this adorable cloud cake! The mommy-to-be, Jennifer was so excited to take home the cake topper to add to baby Robert's nursery!

We then played 2 customized shower games that are included in the party package in the shop! We played Baby Robert's The Sweet Life and The Price is Right. Winners each received a small prize. :)

It was such a fun shower and I was honored to be part of baby Robert's special day! Congratulations Jennifer!!

Butterfly Birthday Party

IMG_4933-1-2 edited.jpg

I had the privilege of working with a dear friend on her daughter's 2nd birthday party! We had a great time and the party was beautiful!

My friend had her daughter's party at our local Botanical Garden's Butterfly House. With the venue selected, I set out to create some butterfly printables for the decor. The party was also for her niece, as she turned 1 around the same time.

For the joint party I created a banner for my friend's daughter Emma as well as one for Emma's cousin, Elise. :)

The tables were decorated with beautiful flowers arranged by a family friend. Underneath I added colorful papers and confetti I designed.

I added coordinating food labels to the table. I always use food labels at events as you never know what allergies people may have.

The adorable cakes came from Edgar's Bakery.

The Butterfly House was amazing and the children were able to go in it and do a scavenger hunt and touch a butterfly!

I'm happy to say that the full butterfly party package is now available in the shop here! Also available are coordinating invitations and thank you notes.

Airplane Themed Birthday Party!

I had the pleasure recently of working with a dear friend on her son's first birthday party. The theme was airplanes! We had so much fun working together and I'm excited to show you guys all the printables I designed for use at the party. :)

The airplane theme party package is available in the shop here!

Guests were greeted with this custom welcome sign.

Inside, my friend Sophie had prepared some tasty treats for guests to enjoy. She had a delicious veggie tray with ranch and hummus, chips and salsa, fruit and her mom made cupcakes.

I designed these custom food labels below.

To match our airplane theme, I created these custom cupcake toppers. I love the little airplane toppers!

We also carried the theme through with these water bottle labels.

I created this "Atticus is 1!" banner and strung it up on red polka-dot ribbon.

I created some decorative papers for the party and we used them to bring so more color to the food table. :)

We wrapped cutlery in a navy napkin and secured them with these adorable napkin wraps for guests to grab and go once they prepared their plates.

I had so much fun celebrating this sweet little boy on his 1st birthday! Thanks Sophie for allowing me to be a part of such a special day! :)

Plates and napkins came from Party City

Sophia's talented father made Atticus' airplane shirt for the day, as well as matching shirts for mom and dad to wear :)
