My dear friend and bridesmaid Amie is expecting her first child in October, a baby girl, and I can't wait to greet her! Amie has always loved ladybugs and the color red, so it was a no-brainer as a theme to surprise her with some gifts and decor at our upcoming dinner. I designed custom place cards, thank you notes and a banner with a hand-painted ladybug in red goache and black ink. I found ladybug sleepers, a ladybug Skip Hop lunch bag (great for bottles too), and red and white polka dot tissue wrapping, napkins, and ribbon to pull it all together. Our friend Christine found ladybug stickers and stirrers as the final touch. This little girl is going to be one lucky lady!
Happy Fourth of July! LAURA ANN enjoyed stationery styling a nautical themed summer baby shower at Beach Point Club in Mamaroneck, New York - an all American theme for an all American couple welcoming a baby boy! Watercolor anchors, sailboats, whales, and stars took the form of custom designed tags, banners, games, and thank you notes. Guests wrote messages to baby for his scrapbook tied to a "wishing tree," and at each table they could guess baby's arrival date and "stats." Sailboats abounded from baby's "ship's ahoy" cake to the sailboats on location through the view out the window, tying it all together for this joyful and festive celebration.
