{Gift Idea} A Basketful of Thanks

Hi 2 Hearts readers!

We have a lovely gift basket to show you today, that would be perfect as a hostess gift or even a birthday gift. This basket is filled with all kinds of fall goodies, and anyone with an eye towards the simple pleasures and style will appreciate it.

The basket is filled with gourmet teas, chocolates, soaps, candles, and a few other personal items. We created this basket for a client, so the items are geared toward her preferences of course. If the person you're gifting this too likes to cook, try putting in a few pretty wine stoppers, festive spatulas, or dish towels. If they like to read, put a favorite magazine or book, and maybe a mini book light. If they are a foodie, put in some spiced nuts, some homemade treats, or a gift card to a favorite restaurant. The options are endless with personalizing a gift basket like this! While the central theme is fall, you can easily incorporate the tastes and style of the receiver by wrapping the items in coordinating papers and ribbons that echo the gorgeous colors of the season.

Also, our basket is on the larger side, but this concept can easily be scaled down and put in a smaller basket with a few thoughtful items. Why not show your thanks to the person hosting Thanksgiving this year (or to a special friend, or your child's teacher) by putting together a personalized, thoughtful gift basket like this one? Tie on a beautiful tag with their name written in calligraphy and you have a gift that is sure to let them know how much you care.

{Frosting Friday} More Baby Sprinkles!

Happy Friday!

Today we have another baby "sprinkle" to share with you today; this time, it's for little girl!
(If you missed the gender neutral baby sprinkle on Wednesday, go here).
Our dear friend Natalie is welcoming her first baby, and we couldn't have been more honored to design the invitations for her shower. Even though this is Natalie's first baby, we took the "sprinkle" concept to  a new level by making it more literal...sprinkling the invites with polka dots, and of course filling the shower itself with everything sprinkled! :)

Natalie's baby's room is going to be pink and black with a teddy bear theme, so we took those ideas and incorporated them into the invitation:

The back of the invitation gave all the information, and a tiny pink bow with a pearl finished it off. The invitation was placed in a metal tin, and beneath it, each guest finds a sweet surprise...

Sweet pink gummy bears of course!

 The entire tin is wrapped with a pink polka dot sash, addressed with a circle label, and sent!

Who wouldn't want to get one of these in the mail?

As you can imagine, there were plenty of sweets and treats to represent sugar and spice and everything nice! Like these cake pops and cupcakes from Sweet E's:

A special thank you to Natalie for allowing us to be a part of this special time! We can't wait to meet baby girl! :)

Have a sweet weekend!

{Baby Shower Details} Green, White, & Gold Baby Sprinkle

Hi there! We hope you're having a fantastic week!

Today we're brining you this adorable green, white, and gold chevron "sprinkle" invitation. For those of you who aren't familiar with "sprinkles," it is a baby shower, but for a second (or third, etc.) baby. They are typically smaller and a bit more casual, so instead of a "shower," you're "sprinkling" the mom to be with love! :)

Our client came to us and let us know she wanted the sprinkle's color scheme to be kelly green, gold, and white. The other fun factor in this party? It was being held at Sprinkles Cupcakes! How apropos! :)

We started with a shimmer gold card stock, then printed the invitation on white card stock in kelly green and gold ink. The chevron pattern is fresh and modern, perfect for a "sprinkle"!

We also created coordinating thank you notes for the mom-to-be, so she could send her "sprinkle of thanks" to her guests afterward!

To see where we drew inspiration from for this design concept, visit our inspiration board here:

The green, gold, and white color palette is so fresh, modern, and fun. We can't wait to use it again for another project!

And don't forget, you can keep up with even more 2 Hearts happenings by following us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and Bloglovin'!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

{Calligraphy Monday} Blue & White Birthday Invitation

Hello 2 Hearts readers!

We hope you had a fabulous weekend, recovering from your sugar-induced Halloween candy comas :)
Today we're sharing an invitation Jillian created for a client who was throwing a 50th birthday bash in Germany for a small group of friends.

Each invitation was written by hand in white ink.
We used a brilliant shimmer blue card stock and matted in a solid white card stock, then added rhinestone embellishments to give it a little extra sparkle.

The result is quite striking, wouldn't you say?
We love this color scheme for invitations and party decor moving into the winter months. Brilliant blues, silvers, and whites all look so beautiful together!

Have a fabulous Monday!
