{Invitation} Rub a Dub Dub Baby Shower

Happy Monday 2 Hearts readers!

It's spring, and that means it is definitely wedding season and baby season! :) Spring baby showers are always fun to plan, since spring signifies new birth, growth, and beginnings…and these are all symbolic of having a baby as well! So today we're bringing you an invitation, coordinating thank you notes, and tags that we created for our dear friend Erica of Sweet E's Bake Shop last year. She already had her sweet little boy, and we just love the theme she chose!

For this particular shower, Erica chose a rubber duckie theme. How cute is that? We played off the bath time idea and used bubbles as a border for the invite, with little rubber duckies on the bottom. A few bubbles received a little glitter to give it that extra sparkle!

We created these custom tags as well for Erica to tie on favor bags at the shower. This design can easily be taken into other elements for a shower, such as cupcake toppers, water bottle labels, and dessert table signage. 

And of course you can't forget thank you notes!
Again several bubbles received the "glitter treatment" which gives the thank you notes that extra pop.

We hope these photos give you another idea for your baby shower inspiration! It's such a sweet theme that is adorable for a baby boy, but can also be modified for a baby girl as well.

Let us know if you'd like our assistance in creating custom baby shower invitations and details for your next shower!

Have a great week!

{Frosting Friday} Mason Jar Love

Happy Friday 2 Hearts readers!

As you may recall us telling you, our friends at Sweet E's Bake Shop moved locations not too long ago. With the move, Sweet E's has introduced some new {delicious} additions to their shop!

In addition to their decadent array of cupcakes, bars, and cookies...

They now carry adorably delicious treats-in-a-jar!
Look at how adorable all of these new treats are! Here we have your "Cowgirl Cookie" mix:

Then your "Chocolate Chip Cookies" in a jar:

And your "Fugdy Chocolate Chip Brownies" in a jar:

They are almost too cute for words! What a fun gift this would be for anyone who loves sweets or likes to bake. We loved designing the tags for these cuties!

Here's a photo of one of the mason jar displays in the shop {with a sign designed by yours truly}…and all of these jars are filled with tiny decorated cookies!

Be sure to stop by Sweet E's and pick up one of these jars for a hostess gift, a birthday gift, or as a little something to keep on your desk at work for when you need a pick-me-up…just sayin' ;)

Hope you have a sweet weekend!

{Baby Shower} Orange & Kraft Diaper Themed Baby Shower Invitation

There is something so sweet and fun about planning a baby shower, and putting your own unique personal twist on things. When client of ours came to us with the idea of doing a diaper-themed baby shower, we knew we wanted to be creative!

We took the colors of the shower (orange, aqua, and kraft) and combined them into an invitation that's downright adorable if we do say so ourselves! ;)

We used a kraft "diaper" enclosure to hold the invitation, and fastened it with a beautiful orange satin ribbon.

The inside held the information for the shower…love the wording the client came up with!

We really love this color combination, especially for a baby boy!
Look how beautifully it translates into party decor:

I like how this color palette brings in a pop of green as well…so fresh and fun!

For a girl, trade out the aqua for a pop of pink, and it's a gorgeous result!

Take your colors into the decor, like with this fun circle garland….

or this tassel garland!

And don't forget to send your guests home with some fun favors, tucked into coordinating favor bags like these:

So many possibilities! We love helping our clients put their own personal twist on an invitation. So next time you have a special occasion, let us know how we can help! :)

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

{Calligraphy Monday} Yellow & Blue Mr. & Mrs. Chair Signs

Happy Monday 2 Hearts readers!

We hope you had a wonderful weekend, and got to enjoy a bit of sunshine :) Today is cloudy and cooler, so we are dreaming of all things spring and sun this morning!

Which reminded us of wedding details we did for Angela and Eugene a few years ago. We loved their yellow and blue color scheme, and enjoyed creating details around their theme. These beautiful photos are courtesy of the bride and groom, and were taken by Dennis Kwan Wedding Photography.

Jillian wrote "Mr. Izumo" and "Mrs. Izumo" in calligraphy on each sign, to coordinate with their theme.

Love the blue ribbon!

And here are the programs we designed for them as well:

Don't these details just remind you of sun, warmth, and summer? We love helping couples create their details, working with their color scheme, the setting, and their personalities. Putting their vision onto paper gives us such joy!

Thank you to Angela and Eugene for the privilege of being a part of your special day, and
to Dennis Kwan Wedding Photography for capturing the details in such a beautiful way!

Hope these details give you a little inspiration today, and remind you that sun, warmth, and summer are just around the corner! :)

Have a wonderful Monday!

Happy Spring! + Flower Box Place Card Display

It's official…spring has sprung! :)

Yesterday was the first day of spring, so we thought we'd celebrate with one of our favorite spring wedding ideas: a flower box seating chart!

You may recognize these photos from Unveiled a few years ago. The gorgeous shots were captured by the amazing Laura of Beautiful Day Photography.

We used a flower box and filled it with a mix of real flowers, then used paper daisies as "place cards." Jillian wrote each guest's name on the center of the daisy in calligraphy.

The flower box had a ribbon wrapped around it and a custom tag noting the table number.
The blooms were placed in between the real flowers, so guests can come "pick" their place card and find their seat at the corresponding table!

We just love this idea for a spring wedding.
It fits perfectly with the theme of "letting love bloom"! :)

If you'd like assistance creating the perfect place card arrangement for your wedding, let us know.

What are some of your favorite spring wedding ideas?

{Feeling Lucky} Las Vegas Inspired Birthday Invitation & Gift Basket


With St. Patrick's Day being on Monday, we're feeling a little lucky, and thought we'd share some projects inspired by a place where you should bring your luck…Las Vegas of course! ;)

We designed this invitation for a wonderful friend of ours. What better way to celebrate your
40th birthday in style than with a Las Vegas bash?

A group of friends celebrated with a fabulous dinner and a fun night on the town!

We took the martini motif and created coordinating return address labels, then adhered them to the eye-catching shimmer gold envelopes.

Happy Birthday Danny!
What a fun evening; thank you for letting us be a part of your birthday festivities!

To see our inspiration for this invitation, visit our Pinterest board here:

Here is another lucky project we did last year…we created a Vegas-themed gift basket for a television show producer's birthday. We were excited about this project because not only was it fun to create, but the person receiving it produced one of our favorite TV shows…Desperate Housewives :)

In the basket, we included some giant playing cards, (fake) money, specialty nuts, chocolate poker chips, mini bottles of Patron, Jack Daniels, and other liquors, and other Vegas-y items :)

Isn't this such a fun idea?

What a fun way to 'kick off' a trip to Vegas or give for a special birthday. No doubt the person who receives this will feel lucky to have you in their life! :)

For a Vegas-themed birthday invitation perfect for a girl's trip,
go here, and see our inspiration board for it here!

We hope these projects give you some great ideas for either putting a fun twist on your St. Patrick's Day celebration, or to celebrate a special birthday or event. We're so glad you stopped by, and certainly feel "lucky" to have such wonderful readers!

Have a great weekend! :)

{Calligraphy Monday} Personalized Guest Book

Happy Monday 2 Hearts readers!

We hope you had a fabulous weekend! Here in southern California, spring is definitely in the air! We were fortunate enough to enjoy some beautiful weather this weekend, and it gets us in the mood for all things bright and springy. With St. Patrick's Day and Easter just around the corner, we're starting to get inspired!

So we though today would be a perfect day to share this fun personalized guest book we did for our client Rebekah. Rebekah was throwing her husband a 40th birthday party, and wanted a place where all their guests could write a note of birthday wishes for him.

The guest book was scrapbook-style, complete with pictures and captions about why he is so loved.

Blank spaces for room to write a birthday wish or note.

Rebekah also wanted us to use this shamrock motif throughout the guest book, to represent his Irish heritage.

We love the springy colors and shamrock motif mixed with all the photos!

Isn't this a wonderful birthday gift idea?
It's thoughtful, sentimental, and captures the fun and memories of a milestone birthday all in one treasured book.
This could easily be done for any age, and any color scheme!

We love helping our creative clients put their vision to life. 
Thank you for letting us be a part of your special celebration!

We hope you have a wonderful Monday :)

This tag, printed on kraft paper, is the finishing touch to the invitation suite (more photos to come on Wednesday!):

So many possibilities with a beautiful monogram like this!
