Danielle's Dream Day in Pink & Black

Our wonderful client, Danielle, had a beautiful pink and black themed wedding in Moraga, CA that we were thrilled to be a part of. Danielle asked for lots of pink and black hanging lanterns that we placed under each reception table umbrella.




We designed champagne bottle wrappers that served as table numbers for the guests.

A custom made sign, painted in the theme colors, directed wedding guests to the ceremony site.


We crafted over 30 paper rosettes to adorn the fireplace at the wedding venue. Rosettes even made it onto the mason jars above to tie in the theme.



We had a wonderful time working with Danielle on her gorgeous wedding day!

Cuckoo for Cake Pops!

As a new company we try to notice patterns of what our clients ask for so that we understand our niche and what are clients are looking for. One of the things that stands out is cake pops! Nearly every part we do, the client asks for cake pops. Kids parties, baby showers, bridal showers, even an upcoming CD release party! Everyone loves them. It's hard to go wrong with a treat that is so cute and so delicious. Here is a sampling of some of our cake pop creations.

Baby Bliss


Our wonderful client, Sabrina, initally approached us to make giraffe cake pops for her daughter's safari themed baby shower. As the guest list grew and grew so did our offerings for the shower! We also made a cake, cupcakes, assorted desserts, and lots of printables for this shower of over 50 guests. Sabrina supplied us with the napkins and plates she was using and we gathered inspiration from that. We took great care in matching colors for everything we created. We hand tinted fondant, candy melts and tweaked the colors on the printables until they were just right. Sabrina requested the baby's monogram be prominent throughout the decor which we included on the cake and the cupcake toppers. She also requested the Bible verse James 1:17 be incorporated into the cupcake toppers. We had a wonderful time working with Sabrina on this baby shower and were so pleased to see the results of our efforts thrill the mom to be, Brittany, and all of the guests.

July is for Designers

There's something about how March comes in like a lamb and leaves like a lion. We all know that April showers bring May flowers. What does July do? For us, July has been nothing less than insanity. Not only are we throwing a new event every weekend, but we're also launching our etsy shop, and to top it off, both of our birthdays are next week! (We're both 30 somethings now). If this is your first time to our blog, welcome! Be sure to subscribe to us, so you don't miss out on any new events or parties. Check out our feed on Facebook and twitter too. Our etsy page is up and will be expanding to include new designs soon. If you live in the bay area, good for you, not only is the weather the best, but we'd love to work with you in person, planning your next event. Enjoy your summer.

Transformers 4: Back to Basics

Summer sequels are getting me down. So much robot on robot violence. Are there any more original ideas out there? And are there any robots that we can trust? Well, ok, so a robot themed party is nothing new, but seriously, how cute are our cards? When things are hand made and illustrations are uniquely created, you can't help but remember that everything old is new again. This was for Jennifer's baby sprinkle when she was pregnant with Grayson a year ago.

We had an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny, yellow bumble bee small party!

For Arden's 3rd birthday Jennifer had a stroke of genius, let's do a tiny party! A tiny party? Yes, we'll have the same things that every party has, only miniature. Mini signs, mini decorations, mini foods, games, invitations, you get the picture. As usual, we have a secondary theme that's a little off-shoot from our primary. We also featured bees, because they're tiny and adorable, like Arden!


Tiny pendant welcome sign. We quickly learned that in order for this theme to pay off, we have to put in a lot of detail. This sign took over six hours to put together. Did it pay off? You have to look very closely for the answer.



Tiny party hats being modeled by Arden's cousins, Trinity and Genesis. Adorable and only took eight hours to put together, totally worth it.


Guests played mini games a la "Minute to Win It".



There's no scale here, but the invitations are really small, take our word for it. They're like the size of a quarter. Slight exaggeration, but the best thing was they kept getting tinier. Open up one envelope and you get another, even smaller one. Take that Russian dolls.


Cupcakes, you guessed it. What else for a tiny party?


Tom Thumb milkshake! We served an array of finger foods like finger sandwiches, baby veggies, keish, bruschetta, crab cakes, and more served on tiny plates with cocktail napkins.
