Barbeque Baby Shower

The Barbeque baby shower is complete. My Friend Tamika was the hostess and it was a pleasure helping her out. The Parents the be, Jeff and Angela could not have been happier. It gave them the vintage feel that they so love without it screaming baby shower.
The parents to be did not want a traditional shower with games, baby decorations and a bow hat at the end. So this shower theme was perfect for them.
Below is the invitation that started it all. Of course as you all know, Microsoft word is my best friend and it didn't let me down this time. They wanted it as simple as possible and they loved them.

I'm not a cook, So thank God for Tamika's friends, Jonni, Jessica and Jennifer who came with enough food to feed an army. They had everything from baked beans to ambrosia salad. I developed the signs for the food to give it a detailed touch.

Jonni found these great food trays that were perfect for an inside Barbeque. These were a big hit!

Paula brought the fantastic burger cake from Cakes Plus. Unfortunately, the cake was ruined in the car on the way home from the Bakery. But her boyfriend (Pictured Below)was there to save the day and whipped up another burger cake. (By the way he had never baked before in his life. He just went on the Internet, got directions on how to make a burger cake and did it, Unbelievable).

Instead of Traditional baby shower games, Tamika knew that the Parents-to-be loved Karaoke. So this was our entertainment. Guess what, I of all people started it out! I dared anyone to take pictures.

Jessica had so many table clothes that worked perfect for the vintage barbeque. I loved everyone of them and used them all.

I have been saving these jars forever and knew that I would be able to use them one day. What a perfect solution to serving Lemonade. I just added a little ribbon.

Of course I had to put some indication that this was a baby shower somewhere. So what better decoration than the pregnant dress form in the middle of Gerber daisies, black eyed susan's and sunflowers.

For the favors, there were miniature picnic baskets with candy jelly beans to match the color of the party.

Below is the whole gang that made every aspect of this shower possible. I'm the short one third from the left.

All in all we all had a great time and the Guest of honors could not be more happy. Thank you Angela and Jeff for letting me be a part of this special memory

Damask in Vegas 30th Birthday Party

My friend, Colette is turning 30 and we are all celebrating with her in Vegas. I created the invitations shown below using rhinestones, velvet ribbon and sparkle paper which all just SCREAM Vegas. In order to make it sophisticated and girlie, just as she is, I added swirls and her initial with vellum paper.

Colette is in love with the Damask design and has found so many wonderful things to help her day be as special as she is. So I decided to put together an idea board for the trip. Pictured below are a Damask Cake from Cake Central and Card box from Wedding Main St.

All the guests will be given a Welcome gift in totes from The Container Store. They will include all things needed while in Vegas. So far we will be putting a mini bottle of wine, playing cards and tokens. We are still trying to figure out what else can fill this big, but useful totes(and at such a great price!). We also love the labels from Weddings by Design.

We are planning to develop a Itinerary for all the guest to follow what Colette will be doing while in Vegas. I love the Welcome Itineraries created by Creative Invitations. Check out her blog here.
