I am finally back to writing here on the blog after more than a year away.

I am back and I wanted to share with you some of the projects that I worked in 2013.

The first one I am sharing is my son’s 1st birthday. Yes, we had another baby, a baby boy that keeps bringing joy to our lives everyday.

This party was by far my favorite! I had so much fun planning it and bringing it to life (in just 3 weeks). My husband had asked me to do a Noah’s Ark theme and I loved the idea. Once¬†I knew the theme I started to plan it but wanted to do the Ark my way ūüôā

Our baby is such a fun boy, and he loves his toys, his food and Sophie (his teething Giraffe). Based on that I decided to create his ark, with the things he loves.  And if you know me and my designs you already noticed that all my parties are a reflection of the invitation I create for such event. This one was no different. Here is the invitation I created for the party:

And from there the party took shape…¬†

It is hard to tell you my favorite detail as I loved everything about how it all turned out.

We had in our backyard and the poles from the rented tent were the frame for the rainbow background I created using yarn. There was a lot of DIY projects for this party.

We had a naked cake (or almost naked) by Dona Doce Cakes as the centerpiece of the cake table and his name was used throughout.

A friend of ours used his carpenter skills and made the Ark that I used as the centerpiece for the favor/dessert table.

We had cars, trains and giraffes cake pops (amazingly delicious) by Cake Pops by Xpressive Designs.

Lots of candy and bonbons as part¬†of our Brazilian tradition, and of course, my latest obsession: MINI TO GO CONTAINERS! They were personalized with Noah’s name and inside I baked my favorite Orange Cake (recipe here).

I want to thank everyone that made this afternoon so enjoyable:

The amazing pictures (aside from the invitation that  I took with my phone) were by the ever talented Renata Rivera.

A huge thank you to my husband for supporting me ( and my out of the box ideas :P), to my mom and mother in law that were a huge help, and to the amazing Neide Lima, from GIF Floral and Events Designs, for bringing her talent and her friendship all the way from Orlando. To my dear friend Luciana from  Arts and Glamour Events and her husband for creating the Ark, and all the help and patience with me :).

Hope you enjoy the pics!

So here I am again…

a year has passed since I did this last…

and I can’t believe that my little baby is turning 2…

as I design the invitation for his birthday party I’m found with one request, made by the birthday boy himself:

Airplanes and the color Orange

Yep, my nearly two-year old son had told me that he wanted an Orange Airplane themed party.

His 2 favorite things in the world.

The airplanes I¬†get it, he loved them since he was a tiny baby ( although in my¬†heart he’ll always be that baby)¬†but how did orange became his favorite color….not sure

The party is at the end of the month and the design for the invitation was not what I had in mind at first.

My first idea was to make something like this

But then the airplanes I got at Michael’s (over 35 of them) were not sturdy enough and I realized¬†that they would be broken by the time they reached¬†their destination.

So… I went with a more vintage feeling and here is how it turned out – and I have to say I’m in love with orange polka-dotted airplanes ūüôā

The airplanes were hand folded and I hand stitched each card.

I’ll be adding this invitation to the etsy shop later on this week.

What do you think?

Happy Tuesday!

TGIF!! Yes indeed! I hope you have great things planned for your weekend.

I’ve been planning a vintage inspired bridal shower that will take place in a few weeks ¬†and today I want to share with you the invitation I created for the bride. She is a Fashion Designer and because of that I wanted the invite to have some kind of texture to it.

All pictures by the talented Pam from Pam Rodrigues Photos

I also created a separate card with her registry info and a request for each guest to bring their favorite recipe and also lined the envelope. Here is how it all came together

I just love this ‚̧

The set is available on my etsy shop

Have a wonderful weekend!!
