post brought to you by Pink Door Design

Oh, love is in the air! We hosted a couples shower this month for our good friends, who are tying the knot in March! In honor of these two lovebirds, I designed a couples shower invitation with a fun gold & sea foam green color scheme...accompanied with a pair of love birds, of course!

The love bird invitation and the bride-to-be's love for shabby chic decor inspired 
the banners, centerpieces and food labels for the shower.

*supplies needed: craft paper, hot glue, twine...& a printer so you can print out your letters*

We recently finished our flagstone patio (I promise to post the amazing patio transformation soon!) and we were able to set-up EIGHT tables and seat everyone outside for the delicious dinner - complements of our amazing Chef, Ms. Catherine Wilson!

I had a fabulous time decorating the table centerpieces on our patio with old books, tin cans, vintage bottles and bird cut-outs to match their invitation. I chose craspedias (a.k.a. billy balls) and a succulent called Sedum to tie in with the invitation's gold & sea foam color scheme.

We had such a blast celebrating Josh & Lindsey!  
Their couples shower was an all-around success and we can't wait for these two lovebirds to become Mr. & Mrs. Buis.

C is for CALEB!

I cannot believe my adorable nephew is ONE! My silly (a.k.a. my sister-in-law Katie) is wonderful and always asks me to design her invitations. For Caleb's birthday, she wanted everything to start with the letter C

C is for Caleb. C is for Celebrate. C is for cake balls & cookies.  
{I could keep going, but I'm sure you get the idea.}

Katie asked for a fun invite with fall colors and this is what I came up with for Caleb's first celebration.

My favorite part about parties is the decorative details. 
I love designing the invitation, but equally LOVE making the signs, food labels, gift tags, etc. to match the invite!

Handmade banner: CALEB IS ONE

Katie is clever - everything on the food table started with the letter C
C is for....Chips with Chili con Queso, Corn Dogs, Chicken, Cakeballs & Cookies

Caleb's Food Labels

Mr. cutie pie himself! He's a bit uncertain about his cupcake :)

 All of Caleb's party people got to leave with a treat.
Continuing with the C theme, Katie handed out candy corn!

Here is a close-up of the gift tag I designed for the candy corn -
C you next year! Love, Caleb

Here is sweet Caleb saying, "C you next time" while sporting 
his Mr. ONE-derful glasses. Ugh, I can't get enough of his cuteness.

Happy Birthday Caleb! Your Auntie E & Uncky C love you soooo much!

Have a birthday party, Christmas party or wedding shower coming up?
