So classic and pretty!  I love the personalization.  Kudos!

You are so talented!  Everything is just gorgeous, so I can't even pick a favorite.  Beautiful work.
23  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Super Cute Suitcase Gift Basket on: January 08, 2009 06:18:15 PM
I put together this gift "basket" for a friend's baby shower.  This doll-sized suitcase is filled to the brim and overflowing with lovely little lavender outfits. 



I hosted this friend's bridal shower several years earlier and the theme of that shower was "world travel."  I thought it would be a cute sort of inside joke to make the baby gift a play on that same theme, so I designed it to look like baby was getting all ready to go travel the world.

Also, Mom's favorite color is purple, and since she had already received tons of pink outfits for her little girl, she was excited to see that all of the outfits were lavender.  Lavender is such a cute and easy alternative to pinks and yellows that moms typically receive.

Mom now uses the mini suitcase to store keepsakes.  When baby gets older, she can use it for her dolls or her own secret treasures!

I love that it turned out to be reversible!  What a happy accident.  Too cute.

What kind of ceremony are you planning?  Rather than one big reception, maybe it might be better to do two smaller, less expensive separate parties and eliminate the potential for conflict as much as possible.  Maybe something like an elegant garden party in one backyard and a fun picnic barbeque in a park.  You could even do them on the same day if you had to, one in the afternoon for lunch and one in the evening for dinner.
26  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Buttercup & Clover Summer Wedding on: January 08, 2009 05:15:14 PM
Here are some pics from our "buttercup and clover" summer wedding.

Our home-printed invitations were sent in petal envelopes from Paper Source.  Matching programs were printed on glossy paper.



Our "guestbook" was a bowl of gorgeous river rocks (from Target!) that our friends and family wrote love messages on with a silver Sharpie marker and then placed on a silver platter.



Our "placecards" were handmade pinwheels that were printed with each guest's name and placed in a "yard" of wheatgrass that we grew in our kitchen!  We hot-glued wooden picket fences around the yard and attached buttercup yellow bows.



Here's a closer view of a pinwheel:



Here's a closeup of the table name flag attached to the pinwheel:



Our cupcake stand was made of foam board, covered in clover cotton fabric and decorated with buttercup yellow grosgrain ribbon, which matched the colors of our bridesmaids' dresses.  We followed the instructions here.



Our favors were mini picnic baskets filled with candies, decorated with small squares of cotton gingham fabric, lovely green ribbon and home-printed "thank you" stickers.



27  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Baby Boy Bouquet on: January 08, 2009 07:20:41 AM
My SIL's baby shower is coming up in a couple of weeks, so I made this (The Baby Bunch-style) baby boy spring bouquet using faux flowers and baby onesies, pants and socks.  Yay for half-off silk flowers at Michaels!



It's been a long time since I posted, so it's nice to be back!

I bought the cards and stickers from Ben Franklin Crafts.  The fishbowl stickers pop off the page, so they're really cute.  They were from the scrapbooking section.
