Spring Colors

With spring officially arriving last week, I am so anxious for warmer weather and sunshine, but also for spring colors! This combination is inspired by spring/Easter colors, but I wanted to change it up some by keeping them from being too pastel. The richer jade green instead of the typical soft blue, and the mustard yellow in place of a pastel yellow really come together beautifully with the darker, but still somewhat pastel melon orange and orchid purple. These colors would be gorgeous for a springtime wedding – I’m picturing jade dresses with flowers and accents in melon, orchid and mustard.

Decided to tweak my very popular garden & butterfly invitation design and offer it for baby showers! The soft, pastel pink and purple colors make this perfect for a Spring garden themed shower for a baby girl.

One of my favorite new products is this adorable “Oh Baby” invitation for a gender neutral baby shower! The fun and modern colors and neutral design make it perfect for any baby shower.

A Bun in the Oven Baby Shower

I’m in love with fun and unique themes for baby showers, so recently I had the idea to style a “Bun in the Oven” themed photo shoot. I wanted everything to feel “homey” and the style of the baby shower to be that of a retro kitchen. I started by designing the printables using a mint green, retro style oven, and to keep with the era, I also added a golden yellow and orange to the design. { The printables can be purchased here. :) }

For the food, I thought it would be good to keep with the theme of baked goods because of the bun in the oven idea. I put a variety of fresh muffins (topped with “cupcake” toppers) on small cake stand, and added some donut holes to a retro bowl.

Bun in the Oven Baby Shower Buffet

The centerpiece on the buffet was a homemade cinnamon bun cake, topped with a printable bun in the oven cake topper!

I also named the buffet the “Bun in the Oven Bakery” to stay within the theme. :)

To keep with the retro kitchen theme, I used some dishes that were appropriate to that era. Fortunately for me, my mom had lots of amazing, retro cookware stored away in her kitchen. I used my mom’s amazing bowls to hold some of the food, and the old cookbooks were perfect for adding some height to my cinnamon bun cake. The final retro touch on the buffet was the orange 70s flour sifter, which worked perfectly for holding my floral arrangement.

The drink bar featured a vintage milk glass bottle I found at an antique mall.  I also included some orange soda and water bottles decorated with matching water bottle labels.

I used glue dots to attach some mint green lace to the drink bottles from The TomKat Studio. And the adorable paper straws from More Sprinkled Joy worked perfectly with my printable straw flags.

The guest table featured a beautiful mint green tablecloth, and each place setting included mint polka dot napkin and matching game cards. Guest’s seats were labeled with my printable place cards, and each guest received a treat bag filled with candy and topped with a matching printable bag topper.

For the centerpiece, I added some oranges and a few flowers to one of the retro bowls.

I made a backdrop for the table by hanging recipe cards, featuring recipes for baked goods, on some sheer ribbon using double sided tape. I think this idea would make a great backdrop for any baking themed party, and would be especially meaningful if you used some old, family recipes.

Garden Birthday Party

I love the outdoors and always admire the natural beauty of flowers and trees. When I saw this tree blooming, I knew it would be the perfect backdrop for a garden themed party.

The freshly cut flowers from my garden accented the table perfectly, and the tree created a beautiful “confetti” across the grass with the newly fallen petals.

The setting was captured by the very talented Jennifer, from Priceless Studios Photography. She did an amazing job photographing the table and all the small details throughout.

Garden Party Decorations

Pink Green and White Candy

Being in a garden setting, I wanted the table to be surrounded by butterflies. Real butterflies, of course, can’t be guaranteed, so I went with the next best thing. ;) I placed die-cuts from Elite Paperie in fun places to make it appear as if butterflies actually landed on the table.

Cupcakes were used for this small party, but I still wanted to create a way to have the appearance of a large cake. I came up with this unique tiered pedestal, and then wrapped it in ribbon and surrounded it with more freshly cut flowers.

I was also set on the idea of having lollipop flowers because I think they’re amazingly cute. I painted some small terracotta pots with pink and white paint to match the table. I filled the pots with some white sixlets, and put the lollipops in the center with some green ribbon to represent the flower’s leaves. This lollipop display turned out to be one of my favorite parts of the table!

One of my other favorite things on the table were the Rice Krispie treats. I made a regular pan of Rice Krispie treats (I used Marshmallow Fluff), and then cut them out using these flower and butterfly cookie cutters. I melted some white chocolate chips in my microwave {at 50%  power so they wouldn’t burn!} and used that to stick some pink and green jelly beans to the Rice Krispie Treats. Placed inside clear cello treat bags with a topper on them, they’re the perfect treats to take home at the end of party!


Along with candy and other treats, lemonade was poured using these adorable plastic bottles and green striped straws from Tom Kat Studio. I also dressed up the drinks with some brown twine and straw flags.
