Paring Down

In order to focus on our growing Zazzle and Merch by Amazon storefronts, we've begun the difficult process of closing our accounts with other print-on-demand vendors, most notably RedBubble and Society6. We thank them for their support of us over the past few years.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star-Themed Baby Shower

We recently hired ourselves to design a "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" baby shower house party, even though our Be There Invitations store doesn't have a related theme. Here's how it came out:

We created the garland from ribbon and a plastic pearl strand after finding the pink and purple stuffed terrycloth stars at Dollar Tree. (And if you press the corner of each one, it plays "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star".) We bought the ballerina doll at TJMaxx because it looked like the mom-to-be as a little girl.

Our epic sweets table. The balloon clouds on either end include 20" yellow glow sticks with gold stars "hanging" from them with clear fishing line.

We taught ourselves how to create the hot air balloons by spending an evening on Pinterest. They take a lot more time to create than we though... especially since we made 5! Adding LED lights inside the Japanese lanterns cast a soft glow.

Ordering a supermarket cake, then embellishing it with custom skewers freed the budget to splurge in other areas.

A wish tree. Be sure to include plenty of tags! We created the "clouds" by glue-gunning cotton balls to styrofoam balls cut in half.We then added glow-in-the-dark stars.

We created ribbon wands for guests to wave when the guests of honor arrived at the baby shower

First impressions matter! Create a festive mood even before guests enter the party.
