I know this is a little late, a little over 3 months to be exact, but I had to share my daughter's 1st birthday dinner.  Fortunately we had the wonderful Melinda Jankowski ( there to take these fabulous photos!

I kept the invitations simple, and included a gold glitter movable wing so I could hide her picture underneath.

The backdrop was a fun project.  It definitely wasn't what I originally envisioned. But after I messed up,  I requested the assistance of my 5 year old to help and create this little masterpiece.  She's momma's little helper :)

I kept the cake simple so that it would set itself apart from the busy backdrop.

The banner was originally made for her 1st year photos, but I thought it worked perfectly for the party as well.

I know this was a 1 year birthday party, but we all know that these first year parties are for the adults.  So the table-setting was definitely targeted towards the mommies and daddies.

Here I created a monthly timeline for the guests to see how much she has grown over the months.

And finally here are some cute shots of the 1 year old at her party :).

I love children's birthday parties that are themed after books.  And I absolutely love this hungry caterpillar themed invitation I designed for a special little boy's baptism and birthday party.

Currently I am designing my youngest daughter's first birthday, and I realized I never posted Chloe's birthday breakfast with her friends.  I can't believe she will be five this year!  All these pictures make me sad and happy at the same time.  Happy because the party was a huge hit, and we all had a blast.  Sad because she is growing up so fast and I can't stop time.  

Here is a little reminder of the invitations designed for the party. 

And here are the party details....

Cake designed by my really good friend

Chloe provided the outfits to all her guests, and everyone looked simply adorable.

Every party needs a home-made pinata!

Looking forward to documenting this year's birthday parties.

 Jessica and Scott were such a pleasure to work with.  Their wedding is one of my "do-over" wedding inspirations.  I loved that they were having an intimate wedding on a ranch in Northern California.  Both their wedding colors and design style were perfect for the venue.  These invites definitely set the mood for a weekend they would never forget.

Here is an oldie but goodie!  I loved the bride's classic and timeless style.  The wedding was simply beautiful with touches of white flowers, gray details and mercury glass.   The wedding invitation was letterpressed, and then mounted upon an embossed pearl paper to set the mood for the elegant wedding. We designed fan programs for the guests since Florida is known for the humid weather.  And at the table, the napkins were wrapped with the menus that cohesively matched all of the other paper decor.  For more check out the feature on The Knot.
