feasting on the talents of others...post #3

Day THREE of a week-long feature called "Feasting on the Talents of others" .

(check out Day ONE and Day TWO if you missed them)

Party Girl: Lisa
Celebration type: Baby Shower
Theme: Baby Carriage
Color palette/pattern: Pink & Brown/polka dots

Lisa reached out to me awhile back and asked that I help her design a simple, fun invitation and coordinating printable party accessories for a baby shower she was helping to host. She'd already picked her color palette, knew she wanted to incorporate a baby carriage in the design and had already chosen to do candles as the party favor.

You may remember me posting the full "Carriage collection" I designed..

Well here's how Lisa brought everything to life:

Candles

Pink and brown has been a long-time favorite color combo of mine so I was already loving the way the printables had turned out. I think Lisa did a great job of creating a dessert table with coordinating sweets that tied in the theme wonderfully.

My favorite highlights:
• the serving vessels wrapped with coordinating ribbon finished off with a cupcake topper.
• Lisa's choice to display a tower of "chocolate" cupcakes as the focal point on the dessert table and then choosing to balance it out with two "vanilla" cupcake serving stands on both sides.
• the coordinating polka dot pink & brown designer chocolate covered oreos (these look like they're from my fave oreo gal: Sweeties by Kim)
• the pink chocolate covered pretzels & the perfectly coordinating jelly beans
• the cute candle favors


I'm so glad Lisa came back to share photos of how everything turned out.
It's always SO fun to see the clever and creative ideas of others.
Thanks Lisa! You really did a wonderful job at helping to make the baby shower extra special.
