{real parties} girly GECKO party - Bella Grace Party Designs

she had me at "gecko"....

when Lindsey from Bella Grace Party Designs enlisted my help for some coordinating gecko themed party accessories...
i was excited!
"excited"...not just because i was up for the design challenge! *wink*
"excited" because i adore Bella Grace Party Designs and was thrilled to be working together.
she filled me on her "soon-to-be two" daughter's love of lizards and how she'd decided to go with a "beachy-girly gecko" theme.
she sent over a picture of a die-cut gecko she was already planning on incorporating into the party elements.
from there, we put our heads together and came up with the birthday graphics & accessories...

i'm thrilled to have played a small part in helping Lindsey get this party together.
I think it turned out SO fun!!
And not only that...it's the perfect party to feature as we finish up this last week of summer before school starts!

KEEPING IT REAL
I was concerned at how well the custom lotion bottle labels would match up to the actual bottle.
Thankfully...Lindsey did a fantastic job with sending me measurements and they turned out PERFECT!!
