somewhere over the rainbow…


mila rae lyons turned one…i (dee) can’t believe it!!! her birthday was in january, but we celebrated with a big, rainbow-themed bash along with family and friends this weekend. the day was filled with fun, great food and of course a yummy rainbow layer cake (baked by my mom!) i had so much fun designing all of the party materials from the rainbow watercolor favors for the kiddies to her one year fact poster. we are so grateful that alison conklin could come and take such amazing shots so we can always remember this day!

work wednesday: mila rae’s first birthday.

with valentine’s day quickly approaching, we are happy to share miss mila’s first birthday party invitation! i (dee) just love the wizard of oz and used that as my inspiration for her somewhere over the rainbow party theme. i designed a flat, double-sided card full off happy hearts, rainbows, arrows and hand-drawn fonts. our friend ralph of pink bike ralph, screen printed them with the most beautiful shimmery gold metallic ink i have ever seen. i tied them all with rainbow or red ruby slipper ribbon and then mailed them in red envelopes which i hand addressed in metallic gold ink. i can’t wait to share her big day with you all!

work wednesday: harper’s 1st birthday.

a cowgirl-themed first birthday party invitation for sweet little harper. harper’s mother requested the theme along with a color palette of blush, aqua + brown. we had fun with the western fonts and embellishments. the invite was printed in full color with a sepia-toned photo of the birthday girl. it was mailed out in a coordinating envelope with wrap-around label.

we also designed this sign-in poster below. the guests used their thumbprints to create the bouquet of balloons. this will be a perfect keepsake and piece of art for harper’s bedroom.
