Liam's 3rd Birthday

My friend Liam is still a big fan of trucks. For his 2nd birthday we did garbage trucks, and for this 3rd birthday, it was ALL about construction. His mommy, Joanna opted to send an Evite rather than a printed invitation, but we still had some fun with printed items for his party.

First I made a welcome sign that Joanna had printed pretty big. 

Then I made a simple pennant banner that had upside down construction cones in between the words.

I created a bunch of different cupcake toppers too. Joanna always orders cupcakes from Nothing Bundt Cakes and they're SO tasty!

For favors Joanna filled plastic construction hats with goodies from Oriental Trading and they were finished with a coloring book that I created for the party. I love making these!!

To finish, I created this t-shirt graphic and Joanna had it printed onto a white and navy blue raglan tee like in this picture. Zazzle did a pretty poor job of printing it, so I don't have a photo of Liam wearing it. Which was disappointing since they've done pretty well in the past. Bummer!

Thank you so much for inviting us to your party Liam, we really had a great time! Happy birthday!

Liam's 2nd Birthday

Since Liam was WAY into garbage trucks when he turned two (so many toddlers are!), his mommy Joanna, chose a garbage truck theme for his birthday party. It was such a fun theme to work with! Joanna picked up miniature garbage can pencil holders from Amazon to decorate the buffet table and goodie bags were made with mini black trash bags! Perfect!

Here's his invitation:

We created a couple of welcome signs that were posted in a few spots in the house.

2" circle cupcake toppers for the cupcakes that Joanna picked up from Nothing Bundt Cakes. Sooooo delicious!

A pennant banner hung over the windows.

We created a super simple coloring book for kids to play with too:

My oldest thoroughly enjoyed the coloring book!

Lastly, I created a t-shirt graphic that Joanna ordered through Zazzle. They were the only shop that would let us order one custom t-shirt in navy blue. I usually recommend CafePress, but they didn't have navy blue. Taking a non-blurry photo of Liam actually wearing the shirt proved to be very hard, so this is my mockup of what the t-shirt looks like. Someday I'll try and get a better photo. Ha!

This birthday party was so much fun to create and even more of a treat to get to actually go to the party! Happy happy birthday Liam!

Nathan's 3rd Birthday

I've had the pleasure of working with Nathan's mommy, Cari on the birthday items for his birthday every year. You can see past birthdays here: 1st birthday, 2nd birthday.

His favorite movie this year is Monsters Inc and he wanted a monsters theme to his birthday. I was oh so happy to oblige.

These monsters were so fun to create!

We made a sign for the party favors too:

And a fun coloring book for the kids in attendance:

It was simple, just an 8.5x11 page folded in half and printed on both sides.

I love how everything turned out. Happy Birthday Nathan!

Emiliano's 1st Birthday

I had the pleasure of working with Emiliano's mommy, Karina on the items for his first birthday party. They were going with a cowboy theme and wanted to use softer aqua and cream colors. I love how it all turned out!

In addition to the invitation we created custom water bottle labels, complete with a customized "nutrition label."

Stickers for trail mix and s'mores favors:


And a cover for a coloring book.

Happiest birthday E!!
