Party in the Park

So excited to design a custom card for a childhood friend's 2 year old boy. She wanted something without a theme, so I decided to go with emphasizing that he was turning TWO! I wanted to showcase how cupcake toppers and water bottles can be designed to match the invitations! Thank you Lindsey for letting me be a part of Jack's big day!

Rolling Stones Housewarming Party

I had the opportunity to create a few things for a new friend's housewarming party that was held last week. She is an avid Rolling Stones fan, so it only seemed perfect to add that special touch when inviting others into her new home! She also writes a weekly newsletter for kids activities here in the New River Valley. If you are local, please her out at NRV Macaroni Kid !

Here are a few of the things designed to add that special touch....

A Rolling Stones song also used as a banner for her cocktail table.

Angry Birds

These items are not in my ETSY shop, but I wanted to show everyone a few of the items that I designed for my Cousin's little boy's 5th birthday party. He is a big fan of Angry Birds and she was having a hard time finding items for the party.... so I accepted the challenge :) I designed the Banner, Cupcake Toppers, and Water Bottle Labels.

Gymnastics Parties

I competed in gymnastics for many years, so when I was asked to design a party invitation for a little gymnast, I was really excited! I have several gymnasts to choose from, so the mother picked out the one that looked most like her daughter and we went from there. Here is the invitation along with the banner, cupcake toppers, and thank you tags that was also ordered!

New Designs

This week I've been working on a couple new design packages for my etsy shop... AngryBirds (never knew a video game on a phone could be so popular) and Safari Animals (thanks to an old softball friend requesting one for her daughter's birthday). Can't wait to show you all what I've been working on!

Speaking of design packages, I have a question for those that have come across my blog. When looking for an invitation, announcement, etc....would you rather buy a premade one or would you rather take a little time and have a custom (one-of-a kind) one designed for you?

Cat in the Hat

I have to say that I am a little partial to this party, not only because I love Cat in the Hat, but it was my little man's 1st birthday party! It was held at a local park which worked out perfectly with 10 toddlers/preschoolers running around! I tried to keep the food simple since most parents were spending their time keeping an eye on their little ones.

Cat in the Hat

Custom invitation by Unique

Welcome table with Cat in the Hat book for guests to sign
and Cat in the Hat cookie mix as a party favor. The cookie
mix was my variation of Bakerella's Cowgirl Cookie mix.

Welcome Banner
"Happy Birthday Levi"

Lunch sacks for the kids. Each included PB&J sandwich,
goldfish crackers, fruit snacks, and a Hi-C.

The adults table. Personalized water bottle labels by Unique.

The food table (before most of the food was set up)
Menu included Sub sandwiches, pasta salad, chips, chocolate
covered pretzels, chocolate covered marshmallows, and cupcakes.

A close up of the cupcakes. With toddlers, this is an easy
way to serve the cupcakes.... no mess. You just bake the batter
right in the ice cream cone!

Each food had a description card.

Levi really got into the cake!

Party Planning Services

Have a party coming up and you don't know where to start? Do you have an idea for a theme, but don't know where to go from there?
Unique also offers full service event planning! Beginning with a consultation, I'll take your vision and turn it into a reality! I can do as much as design and execute or I can just be here to bounce ideas off of. Please take a look at some of the pictures below that show design elements for a spa party for a 6 year olds birthday! All personalized items (i.e. banner, cupcake toppers, invitations, welcome wreath) were designed and constructed by Unique.

Spa Day

Table for the guests complete with personalized place cards

The basement was decorated as a "Spa". There was a waiting room
where the girls sipped on personalized water bottles and read magazines while
waiting on manicures, pedicures, and facials.

The ladies were treated to a "Spa Lunch" before their relaxing treatments.
Food table included a personalized birthday banner, design setup by Unique, cupcake toppers
and personalized gift bags for each guest. You'll get to see their content below.

Another look at the food table.

Welcome wreath that greeted the guests as they arrived.

All the girls enjoying their day!

Unique worked with the customer to find contents
for gift bags. Each bag was stuffed with coordinating tissue
paper and personalized name tag was attached.
