A absolutely stunning venue for an equally stunning couple!
All paper goods were of rustic nature--dark blues, kraft and gold.
Let's have the pictures do the talking!

A Science Themed Wedding

I absolutely loved working on this wedding. Not only because the couple was near and dear to me--but also--it was such a fun theme! The couple gave me a lot of creative freedom--so needless to say, I had a LOT of fun :) I designed to my hearts content!

Absolutely amazing captures by Snapmotive 

Paper Goods
There are so many cheesy science themed parties--I wanted this one to be DIFFERENT--which is why I took a more modern take on the theme. The hexagon which first came out in the invitations becomes a running theme throughout the entire stationery collection.

And the ultimate science themed item: the seating chart made into a periodic table! This was by far my favorite seating chart to make this past year!

Escort cards that replicate their periodic element!

Gold glittered Table numbers!

Signage!
Some Chalkboard Love :)

Such a lovely venue for a lovely couple!

Monopoly Themed First Birthday

MONOPOLY!! Can't go wrong with monopoly :)

I had the pleasure of working with Sophia from Petite Productions on this lovely Monopoly themed First Birthday. All paper goods were done by yours truly! I think my favorite part were the invitations-put a lot of thought into it. Each invitation was also hand glued onto a super heavy black matte board so it felt like a REAL game board!

Hats off to Petite Productions for an amazing job with styling and coordinating everything--and to John Park Photography for capturing these lovely photos!

Airplanes and Clouds

A BOY birthday theme! Airplanes and lots and lots of CLOUDS!~

Definitely a fun birthday theme to design for--and help out with.

This was for a dear friend of mine (or for her son I should say haha) so we weren't just designing paper goods--we were part of the planning process as well!

The entire birthday was planned and put together in a week! Most of the handmade stuff done actually in one night! Super fast paced party--but considering how much time we had--I think it came together quite nicely. Side note--it wasn't that we procrastined or was being irresponsible--both my friend and I were just SO busy that month--we literally only had 1 week of time to work with!

It was a BRUNCH themed party--complete with a cereal bar, mini pancakes, sausages, bacon and of course some good ol' OJ!

Decor we did consisted of Chalkboards -- Graphics/Printed Decor -- Cake Topper --Photo Booth :) Enjoy!

Table setting for the kiddies:

Passports were bought from Oriental Trading! Just didn't have the time to design/make those too haha--they were super fun--came with stickers!

My little one--he was obviously too short to sit at the table so we moved him to the kiddie table--he seemed to like that much better :)

Cake Table! I absolutely love making cake toppers!!

 For added Decor behind the table--the host (the mom/my friend) put up this cute backdrop of pictures! Totally added that extra sparkle--pictures are always worth a thousand words.

 Presents!

 Photo Backdrop! Kept it simple--Die cut clouds on butcher paper!

Birthday boy!

 Cotton Candy Time (because it's a cloud theme haha-edible clouds)

Babies:

I should probably mention the entire patio ceiling was covered with white balloons--but I don't have a picture of it :(

 Yeahhhh, it's always hard trying to get a group picture with kids haha.

Thank you to the host for letting me be a part of their big boy's birthday!

Pororo Birthday! Free Printables!

I thought my stationary design days with Jane from

Jane Events

would come to a close when she moved to Seattle--but I was SO happy when she contacted me and asked if I could help out with her son's 2nd birthday!

She designed the cutest Pororo Themed birthday! Nice pastel palette with a simple sweet look.

On my end, I made some silhouette cut outs in all sizes, some used as food toppers and others for the photo backdrop, pororo glasses, name tags and some small trading cards that kids could take as favors!

Gotta say, Jane is so good at what she does--everything came out super cute!!

A Preppy School Theme First Birthday

Time truly flies.

You blink and before you know it, your baby turns ONE!!!

and before you know it 4.5 months have past and you STILL haven't posted pictures of his first birthday.

sigh. *hangs head in shame*

better late than never :)

Matthew's first birthday was an interesting one. As far as planning goes, I told myself I would start early which I did--THEN--BAM--two weeks before the event my creative juices turned me in a different direction and essentially I started from scratch. So...I ran out of time--BUT--at the end of the day, my baby had fun--so I was one happy mommy.

It was a School Theme but with a preppy modern feel to it.

I didn't want it to be the red apple/yellow pencil back to school that I've seen people do--I wanted his party to be unique and different.

I'll let the pictures do the explaining!

Overall Shot and Head Table

Sign in Table:

People were greeted with a "Baby Prep School" Sign that showed the classes they would be taking that day (the activities at the party).  HISTORY // READING+WRITING // BAKING 101 // PHOTOGRAPHY

Tables were lined with kraft paper and color pencils/crayons/makers were set out so people could draw/write throughout the party.

FIRST ACTIVITY: HISTORY 101

I hung all his monthly pictures -- his "history" then--the activity dealt with his future.

Career Game: This was a Korean Traditional Korean Game called "Doljabi"where the baby picks an object that is supposed to determine their future. Guests get to participate in a raffle where they can pick which object they think the baby will grab. To go along with the "school" theme--I called it the "Pep rally"

I've only used chalk once before this birthday....so I was still fairly new with this medium.

I also did these chalk pieces at three in the morning so I was rushing through them. Next time I use chalk--promise they will be MUCH better :)

HISTORY+READING: Favors for the kids

Made personalized sketchbooks with their names and alphabet activity cards that they could fill out.

(the cards can be found in our

etsy store

)

BAKING 101: Sweet Treats!

Desserts by Cake Creamery--they did an amazing job!

PHOTOGRAPHY: Photobooth

 Props:

GENERAL DECOR: Pom poms, yarn balls and Bow Ties

Mini Pom Pom Centerpieces: (Both pom poms and yarn balls were all HANDMADE--took FOREVERRRRRR!!!)

I tried to find a overall shot of all the side decor but these two were the best I could find:

Family :)

Wardrobe change for the Pep Rally/Career Game--really didn't want to keep the hat on...boo :(

HE PICKED THE BALL!! He's going to be an athlete!

Wardrobe Change for the Cake Smash and Birthday Song:

FIGHT ON!

CAKE SMASH - he didn't seem too found of this part.

oh, and lets not forget the invites:

excuse the photo quality--these were taken off my phone.

I did a tri-fold but each layer being a different height so that when folded all the layers would show through.

Happy Birthday my baby. You're a toddler now--time truly flies.

Bible Reading Chart 2.0

It's been three years since we posted the Bible Reading Chart as a free download for people to use.

It's definitely been our most popular free download. Just shy of 10,000 hits!

It makes us happy knowing people want to read the word...and spend quality time with our Maker.

We've revamped the chart! The full sheet 8.5x11 is still available as always, but now we've created it to be smaller and more compact! You can now print out a 5.75x8.5 version (double sided).

Excited to share this new resource with everyone!

Excuse the poor picture quality--had to take this in the middle of the night with poor lighting -_-

If you want this PRINTED and delivered to you--just follow us on Instagram for our free giveaway happening TONIGHT! @thethingshannahloves

Cake Creamery

Introducing the cutest bakery ever: Cake Creamery!

They just had their grand opening not too long ago and I had the pleasure of designing their logo and other paper goods for their opening event. They have a lot of high profile clientele--my first project with them was a train theme birthday party for the Givenchy Family. Then just last week finished up some paper goods for Jessica Alba's daughter Haven's birthday. Fun fun fun :) Love working with the cake creamery team--such a talented group of ladies!

Check out this oh so delectable bakery

here

Here's the full spread of the desserts they had at their grand opening. Gorgeous right?

Here's the first look at the logo

Made some stickers for them to put on their yummy cookies!

Made some food labels as well.

I also did a fun side logo for them to use. This is not their "main" logo--but something cute that they can use. I basically took the two "C"s in Cake Creamery and used it to represent the two tiers of a cake. Some stickers with the design.

Designed simple menus. Aren't their cakes just to die for? So gorgeous. 

Designed raffle tickers, sign in sheets, and other signage--just not all pictured. I'm so excited for them. Hopefully I'll be working with them on their future events so stay tuned to my IG feed for some snapshots of the work.

Citrus Farmstand 1st Birthday!

Here's another first birthday!

Theme: Citrus Farmstand

The paper goods followed a watercolor pink ombre theme with floral accents.

Absolutely LOVED working on this party--fun fun fun~

And here we go!

Fact board in the back. And table escort cards tied to the flowers--and guest would have to grab the flowers and take to their table which would then double as a centerpiece! 

Here's another shot of the Fact Board:

The Doljabi Game was set up on a Ladder!

With the ticket holders as strawberry crates!

Here's the birthday girl playing the game! So cute in her pink hanbok (Korean Traditional Clothes)

Table Settings were of the Menu, and the favors (a peach!) with "You're a Peach" Tags

Had a lot of fun on this party. Here are some more pics for you to enjoy (no paper goods here--but just amazing to look at Jane's work with the set up and vision)

And here is the oh so cute birthday girl and family!~

Valentines Day is just around the corner!

If you're a parent this means buying cards and candy so your child can pass them out to everyone in their class! Instead of buying those premade cards--why not make them at home? :) You don't even have to get candy--maybe attach pencils, erasers, pens, stickers....the possibilities are endless! Stick them on the back, write on the back, put them in bags, use them as tags, you decide!

Three options:

1. Download the freebie 

HERE

.

2. Purchase ALL EIGHT designs (digital download) for $1 

HERE

3. Purchase 40 CARDS printed, cut and delivered to you for $5

easy peasy.

and of course, just because you don't have kids doesn't mean you can't give out valentines day cards!!!

Give them out to coworkers, friends and family!

be sure to order yours soon because the 14th will get here FAST.

Last day to order to guarantee you get yours before the 14th is FEBRUARY 7th. You can always order later--I'm sure it'll get there in a day or two--but just to be safe....order by the 7th!

Giraffe Baby Shower

This is a baby shower I helped out with last month!

It was for a super beautiful mommy to be--and I wish her and the baby girl much love--can't wait to meet the little one in person!

Some fun game/activity ideas if you're planning on doing a shower!

1. Name game (since they didn't choose a name--we asked guests to suggest names they thought would be a good fit)

2. Advice for the Parents to be or wishes for the baby

3. Baby Bingo--who doesn't love playing bingo while the presents are being opened.

4. I Spy (Suggestions of photo opts that guests can take and post to instagram under the same hashtag)

5. Madlibs

annnd here are some pictures...

EVENT DECOR:

--Props to my friend Hannah (same name as me!) for the streamer decor--great idea--awesome execution! She definitely has the perfect patio for these sort of events! SO JELLY!

--Place settings were printables (which I will post a close up of later)

--Centerpieces: Flowers in China Teapots+Mason Jars with Pencils (with washi tape as flags)

INVITATIONS:

--Simple giraffe theme :)

PRINTABLES:

--Once everything was designed/printed/cut/punched out--I wrapped everything together to create a set of activities the guests could do to pass the time while waiting/eating.

I think baby showers are the cutest/funnest events to be a part of :)
