Sweet Snaps #6: More from Betsey Darley Photography

A couple of months ago, Betsey of Betsey Darley Photography contacted me regarding a Construction party she was going to throw and all the fun details about it!  Needless to say, I was excited and on board!  You all saw the previous “sweet snaps” from her adorable  pink and orange party, right?  Well, here are more photos that you are surely going to “DIG!”


Loving the props!

She used our plastic bottles with colored caps and pre-chilled “MUD” chocolate milk!


Many, many thanks to such a  talented photographer for making us a part of her awesome party and sharing these photos with us!


Sweet Snaps #5

I absolutely love it when customers send me photos from their parties and events!

It’s such a joy to see creativity + a love for celebrating + big smiles all come together!  I literally couldn’t stop smiling looking at these photos submitted by one of our sweet customers!  All I can say about her little one and her little one’s 1st birthday party is “PURE CUTENESS!”

I love how she used multiple 36 inch balloons (wild berry, wintergreen, lime green, red, and yellow)  to create the perfect backdrop so effortlessly!

Sweet Snaps Entry #4

A very dear customer of ours sent us some photos of a recent party she hosted.

Along with some photos, here’s what she said, “Just wanted to share with you pictures of the stuff I bought from your shop. They made my party very extra special and everyone is asking about them.”

Nothing makes my job sweeter than sweet, sweet words from customers.  Thank you so much!  Amazing job with your set up, Noura!


She coordinated Yellow Stars vintage-style paper straws with custom flags and her mason jars to give her beverages that extra oomph.


She used our Pink Cadillac Meal Boxes and Yellow Taxi Meal Boxes to serve her treats!  How sweet is this idea!

Product Testing

There’s no way to be able to ACCURATELY describe, analyze, critique, rate, or rave about a product until you’ve tested it out first-hand.  So, we decided to put one of our newest products, our Activity Paper Placemats for kids, to the test with one of the smartest, toughest, most-thorough inspectors out there!  Here’s how it went down:

Mr. Inspector, Age 3, sat down at the table in front of the placemat.  With his colored-pencils in hand, he began this intense and rigorous testing process.

The little genius busy at work.  I think he was on to something!

He tested the pirate patch



It started to look promising!  But Mr. Inspector (who chose to remain anonymous)…


 …still had more work to do!



I think we have a winner! Our Activity Paper Placemats have passed the test!


And there you have it, smiles and giggles guaranteed!


Sweet Snaps Entry #2: Betsey Darley Photography

Last month, I had the pleasure of collaborating with the wonderful and talented Betsey Darley of Betsey Darley Photography, a custom photographer based in Fairfax, Virginia.  Looking through her website portfolio, one can admire her artistry, the vibrant colors in her work, and her ability to capture genuine smiles and fun in her photos.  So you can imagine I was beyond excited when she contacted me.  These are some of the photos she shared with me from her bright pink and orange cupcake party!

Love how she presented our hot pink and orange dotted birch wood cutlery in this cute little tin bucket!

She was also sweet enough to send us a photo of our fabulous 36″ Round Citrine Yellow balloon in action!  But despite this balloons’ unquestionable charm, it doesn’t hold a candle to this beautiful couple and parents-to-be!  Thanks for sharing this with us!

Sweet Snaps Entry #1: Pom Party Table


Submitted by Sarah on July 9, 2013.  Sarah used bright yellow and gray tissue paper poms to compliment her theme for her sweet kiddo’s birthday party.  You usually find these lovely poms used as hanging decor but I love how she got creative and mounted them on glass vases to accentuate her cake/dessert table!  All the details, down to the gray chevron table runner, definitely made this table one to remember.  Thanks for sharing, Sarah!
