So you’ve decided to plan the Starry Night or Under the Stars Wedding of your dreams, you have all the major details figured out but what about the small things?
Are you planning on providing a small wedding favor to your guests for attending your wedding?
To those undecided, here are a few ideas below. Click on the name for a link to the site where you can purchase these favors.
From Top to Bottom - Left To Right
These clear plastic ornaments can be a great favor from your wedding. You could add a fine dark blue glitter to the back and your engagement photos inside to create a memorable gift that your guests can view each Christmas.
Personalized Stars Zinc Alloy Key chains by JJ’s House
These star keychains make a great favor and are so pretty! I love that they can be personalized with the Bride, Groom and date of wedding. They come in a set of 6.
Crystal Key chain,Star Key chain by LucKeyMe
I saw this design and absolutely thought it was adorable and unique. It really doesn’t show that it was from a wedding which might just be something you’re looking for in your favors. The seller does offer customization for the keychains and claims they will match the colors of your wedding.
Set of 12 - 4 oz Candle Wedding Favor - Soy - Personalized Wedding Favors by VerisCandlesandBath
I love this candle. It has a beautiful sky background and an adorable phrase. This seller does allow for customization so you could probably get you and your grooms’ names added to the candle but you would have to check first.
Twilight Iris Blue Tea Light Candle by MPMArtWorld
I love this candle set but it is pretty expensive in regards to wedding favors. However I think you could probably make these yourself with some ModPodge, dollar store Votive Candles, Dollar Store Votive Candle Holders, Star Stickers (to avoid where the ModPodge is placed) and some Rhinestones from any craft store.
Frosted Star Votive Candle Holders
This Beautiful Candle is no longer available from the retailer, however, I think one could definitely recreate this with some Rhinestones, Star Stickers and original ModPodge to seal the project. It would be completely unique to your guests, something they could use over and over again if you use Votive Candles. And it could easily go with any household decor.
Let me know what you guys think of these ideas below in the comments. Also if you've tried to do any of these yourself link me to your designs so we can see how they turned out!
Happy New Year!!!
I hope that everyone had a very safe and enjoyable celebration last evening as the ball dropped in New York and other cities around the world. Here where I am from we raise a New Years ball. It's kind of weird, kind of unique and definitely kind of awesome.

Offer expires at 11:59pm on 1/3/16
Today I'm here to announce a new design that I posted up on my Etsy account only around 5pm yesterday. Since then it has gained more interest than anything I have posted in such a short amount of time. I'm so excited that I could go to space and jump along the stars! I mean why not right?
I'm still working on the Pocket-Fold Version, That should be up later today. I have a TON of Add-on Products to go with this set that are mostly all ready to go.
Here's the preview of the Invitation Suite with Invitations, RSVP Card and Details Card:
I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season as it is already upon us. It feels so weird with it being December as we have just had very unseasonably warm temperatures where I'm located.
I have a few designs still available for the holiday season if you have some last minute parties to plan. You can go check them out in my Etsy Shop.
I also wanted to take the time tonight to give out a Christmas freebie. For anyone wanting to spruce up their Christmas Cupcakes. Featuring a Santa and Elf design, simply print out the cupcake wrappers on regular printer paper at 100% (Actual Size) without borders.
Bee Theme Baby Showers & Gender Reveal Parties - Pinterest
Once in a while everyone needs to find a little inspiration for things. Pinterest is one of my favorite ways to get inspiration to my next idea so I figured once a week in conjunction with my weekly theme I will post a link to one of my pinterest boards that go along with that theme. This week has been all about baby showers and more specifically my Bee Theme Baby shower Invite and Gender Reveal Parties. I have one more item to post for this but I just need to finish out some of the final details. That should likely become available in the next day or two but definitely by Sunday :)
In the meantime I thought it would be great to list my Pintrest Board for this special occasion. Included in my board are shopping items, like napkins, silverware, plates, the colored chocolate you can melt to make some amazing favors, favors, games, decorations, the invitations, and anything else that I could think of that will help inspire you for your very own bee theme baby shower or gender reveal party. Just click on the image above to view on my pinterest page.
Bee Themed Baby Shower Games
So far this week we introduced the Bee Theme Baby Shower Invitations, Gender Reveal Party Invitations that included the diaper raffle cards and the Thank You cards in an earlier post on this blog. Today I am introducing the newest product of this line which is my baby shower games.
You can get everything that you need with these games. There are 7 in the package (the biggest game package I've done to date!!).
- Name that Food (with jar labels)
- Don't Say Baby
- Baby Bingo
- Mommy's Wishes
- Price is Right
- Baby Scramble
- Whats on Your Phone
I worked really hard on these games. I'm so glad that I get to share them with everyone. They are available in my Etsy Shop. Go check them out!
I've honestly been working on this blog post now since Monday. I have been super busy with work and creating that it has taken me much longer to get out than anticipated. I also fail hardcore at blogging. I love designing and making but writing about what I love to do is so hard for me.
This week I kicked off my theme week. And we've started with a very beautiful bumble bee baby shower collection. Part one was on Monday and featured this beautiful set below.
DIY Bee Themed Baby Shower Package
Set comes with both the baby shower invitation and the gender reveal invitation so you don't have to wait to download. Also included automatically is the matching thank you card, diaper raffle.
DIY What Will It Bee - Bee Gender Reveal Party Invitation
The invitations are editable in Adobe Reader. So you can instantly download, edit and print all within only a few minutes.
Part two will include matching Baby Shower Games! Look for that later today.
I decided something this weekend that would greatly help me in my quest for creating new invitations and designs consistently. I love creating things in Photoshop and the least little thing can inspire me to create something beautiful for a blushing bride or a mommy to be. The only problem with this is then sometimes I get overwhelmed with ideas and end up with nothing, or a bunch of half started projects. So to clean this up and challenge myself in new ways I have decided that for now on I will hold weekly themes.
Each week will sponsor a different theme with different items from weddings to baby showers and all the parties in between and after. There are so many items that I want to get in my Etsy Shop that I figure this will be one of the best ways that I will be able to do that.
This week's theme is Baby Showers. I have one collection that will slowly become available this week and another design that I have started and scrapped so many times because I simply couldn't get things to work the way I wanted. I'm finally going to tackle that project and get it up because it is too beautiful not to share with all of my mother's to be.
As usual my designs will be the DIY fully editable instant downloable type. That's a mouthful!
I can't wait to show you my work.
The first of my latest collection will be up later today so be on the lookout.
Also don't forget my Chalkboard Baby Shower Collection promotional sale will be expiring soon! Get in on the deal before it goes away.
I love the color purple, it is definitely one of my favorite colors of the spectrum. I love that you can go from pastel to dark with the color easily to achieve any look at you desire.
Purple is also a great color for any theme of your wedding. You can use it no matter what season of the year it is. Darker purples tend to be great for fall and winter weddings while a light purple is perfect for spring and anywhere in between works for summer. Purple also mixes great with other colors.
Need help with Purple Wedding Inspiration??
I have set up a pinterest board with inspiration for purple weddings. It features the color mixed with other colors and various times of the year. In the upcoming weeks I'll be categorizing my pinterest account for each season but I figured this would help get those creative vibes flowing.
I hope that everyone had an safe and happy Halloween!! Filled with lots of fun.
In preparation for next year, I'm offering a $5 coupon on all of my Halloween designs. That makes invites $50% off!!!
Once these items are gone, they're gone. I won't be reposting anything Halloween related again until next year.
Coupon Code: HALLOWEEN
