adventures: magic fish, tv doctors, teacher donuts and david tutera

Did my title grab you? At the last minute, I thought dropping a few commas would make my title a bit more interesting!

J and I feel so blessed to work with amazing people day in and day out. We love having the opportunity to share our talents with clients from all over the world. I’ll be honest though…we’re terrible at marketing. Seriously. It is a huge weakness for both of us. Fortunately though, the talented event planners we work with are great at it and April was a record breaking month of features for us—NINETEEN! We are incredibly honored.

Let me reiterate that we do not design parties and products just to be featured. It’s not our main goal. We create things to bring joy to others and, fortunately, people seem to like what we do. We try to bring others’ visions to life…and add a lil’ piggy twist to them, too!

Since we have been poppin’ up around the blogosphere, I thought it would be fun for y’all to join us on our adventures! Each week I’ll do a lil’ look back at where this lil’ piggy’s been hangin’ out. You’ll visit a bunch of our favorite party girls, meet some new talents and pick up a few freebies and lots of inspiration along the way!

Ready? Let’s go on an adventure!

Cineca of Dreamin’ N Details asked us to design two wedding menus for a feature she styled and contributed to the blog, It’s a Bride’s Life with David Tutera. If you didn’t know, we used to “do weddings” all. the. time. We have hundreds (literally) of menu designs in our archives so we were able to tweak a couple for the feature. Always love collaborating with Cineca and a couple of other sweet ladies you just might recognize—Jenny of Craft That Party and Maria of Love & Sugar Kisses. {Photography :: Freedom Dreamer Photography}

Speaking of Jenny, we had the pleasure of creating the printables her son’s 5th birthday party! J and I had so much fun creating this lil’ collection {coming soon to The Market} and Jenny and I had a blast brainstorming activities. Don’t miss the photo booth!

A couple of months ago Elissa of One Stone Events contacted me regarding a party she was planning. If you don’t know Elissa, she’s a brilliant event planner and stylist and the sweetest thing under the sun! She asked my permission to use the “infamous” Paper Plate Backdrop for a photo booth she was creating for her husband’s birthday party. Let me just announce that I encourage y’all to use the “infamous” backdrop and I love when you share photos of what you created. I love the photos so much that I have a Pinterest board committed to nothing but Paper Plate Backdrops.

Back to Elissa…I, of course, said, “YES!” and this is one of those parties that you need to look at over and over. Why? There are so many little details that make this party brilliant! If you’ve ever watched the show, “How I Met Your Mother,” then you will be ooh-ing and aah-ing at every single detail. This is one of those “don’t miss” parties!

Kristin of Stampin’ Fanatic asked us to create Doctor Bag Favor Boxes for her daughter’s “The Doc is In” birthday party. Since we are kid-less, Kristin introduced us to Doc McStuffins and we fell in love! For this one, J had to get his glitter on to create our version of Doc McStuffins’ doctor bag which is available here. You’ll love all of the sweet, handmade details Kristin created!

My dear friend, Kristy aka The Purple Pug, asked us to tweak a couple of our Magic Trick Collection products for her son’s 8th birthday party. We sent over “The Great Gavini” banner along with tie-dyed “8” playing cards for her to play with. If you don’t know the Pug, she adds her own magical touch to everything! If you love sparkle, sweet boys and rabbits then you don’t want to miss this enchanted celebration!
