New Fuchsia + Aqua Birth Announcement

OK, so I may have just said this last week but this is another one of my new faves. I love this modern hot pink, black + aqua color scheme. Oh and that headband + the one picture where she looks like she's waving - so cute! Our friends Amy + Jason welcomed their first child last month and is she ever darling and already so stylin'!

 Welcome to the world sweet Maryn! You can purchase this design in my etsy shop!  XO, m

Cami's {Watermelon} Summer Play Date

I know, I know....a themed play date? But, of course! I try to throw a little summer play date for Cami every Summer and this year Watermelon immediately popped in my head as it's Cami's fave. {See last year's "Sunshine + Lemonade" themed play date here} I swear I have more pink + green party supplies more than any other color so it worked out perfectly. Cami was beyond excited to have her little pals over for some fun. 15 kids + 8 moms = SUPER fun. The biggest hit of the playdate? WATER BALLOONS. Next time, I'll be sure to have like 200 filled ahead of time. ;) Oh well, you live and learn. A huge thank you to Ellie of Photography Studio 37, who is one of the mama's to two of the girls at the play date, for capturing all of these super awesome photos.

Here are a few of my favorites I recently pinned on Pinterest. Are you a fellow Pinterest addict?! ;) If so, follow me here.

Niki + Dan {Wedding Feature}

I'm so excited to share these amazing pictures with you from Dan & Niki's beautiful June 30th Wedding. All photos taken by Heather Lanell Photography. I designed all of the paper products using their hot pink and black damask theme. Cannot get enough of it! I loved her idea of doing a movie poster style wedding invitation.


My hubby and I designed the double-sided sweets table sign which turned out so cute and you can now purchase in our etsy shop in any color scheme! :) I also made the fabric garland which brought so much to the table! So glad I made it last minute :)

Operation Shower Love

Today I'm helping setup at the Operation Shower event being held in Chicago! If you aren't familiar with Operation Shower, it is a non-profit organization that throws joyful baby showers for military families to help ease the burden of deployment. I was asked to collect diaper donations to bring along for this amazing event and took it upon myself to collect even more!

It completely warmed my heart to see so many amazing people willing to donate! One of my favorite quotes that seems very fitting is, "Ask not what kindness people can do for you, ask what type of kindness you can do for others." It really is a big deal to me that you helped such an amazing cause and I know the mom's will surely appreciate it.

A great {BIG} thank you to the following ladies for their donations:
 Adriane, Alicia, Amber, Amy, Ann, Chelsea, Donna, Erin, Joan, Kyle, Laurie, Lisa, Megan, Melissa, Missy, Pam, Pam, Pam, Rebecca, Stephanie, Tarah, Tiffany + Victoria

I did fall short of my goal so went on a little shopping spree for diapers :) I absolutely love helping people and what better way than to donate diapers for such an amazing event.
I'm super excited to see Ms. Amy Belle Isle (co-founder of Operation Shower) again! I had the pleasure of meeting her for the first time last year in San Diego at the HWTM Launch Party. I'm beyond excited to help and meet some more party people :) This is such an amazing organization and I hope to help out again in the future. XOXO, m
