X-Box Birthday Bash

What kid doesn’t love playing video games? All the kiddos that we know loves playing video games or games in general! So when we got contacted to do an X-Box themed party for Bradley, who was turning 9, we were excited to get started! Bradley’s mama wanted to make sure that everything was simple because she was having it at a game center, so she didn’t need much. Check out what she got:

 

She make this simple dessert table that has awesome treats and party favors! Her cake and cupcakes were made by IG @love.zooey . . . she did a phenomenal job with the sweets.

We helped create this simple centerpiece to show off Bradley turning 9 and of course the x-box controller.

Here is a close up of the candy wrappers that we designed for the party favors. Everyone got Hershey’s cookie & cream candy bar.

And we created this simple banner to celebrate Bradley’s birthday. Under the cool lighting it looks almost as if it glows in the dark!

Purple and Gold Beach Side Bachelorette

This year, we seem to have gotten a lot less inquiries about bachelorette decor and more and more birthdays. Not that we are complaining, we love a good birthday party. But when Emily’s friends approached us about their beach side bachelorette party, we were so excited! We love that they were keeping it breezy and non-raunchy. They asked us to keep the decorations simple and nothing too crazy as they just wanted to relax by the beach, have a sleepover and drink wine all night. The one request that they had was that it be purple, the bride-to-be favorite color.

We create a simple pennant scallop banner in shades of purple. We love that the girls dressed it up with tissue balls, balloons and tealight candles. Really sets a great ambiance of a fun and relaxing weekend. Also, if you like the baloons, we referred them to our wonderful sister store Joy by Mila Rose

 

We create props so that they can take photos around the house together OR using the props as part of their Instagram shots.

 

We also kept it simple with diamond ring confetti to add some sparkle to certain areas. We cut the confetti in shades of glitter purple and regular card stock purple along with glitter gold. BONUS that the center of the ring is a perfect circle, already giving us a second shape to include with the confetti package.

 

Let us know if we can help decorate your next party! Also we had some leftover of these confetti and we will be posting it soon on our Etsy website, please visit us often! We are uploading things as fast as we can to help cater to your next event! Or if you need something custom made, don’t hesitate to email us at simplee.nou@gmail.com.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby Shower

We love it when we get to play with simple ideas that we can play with. When we were approached with “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” as the theme and that the decorations needed to be simple and easy to put up and take down because it will be during lunch for a co-worker, we got to work right away! First, we needed to know colors, stars are universal and looks great in all colors. The ladies at LA County who were hosting the event settled on mint, shimmery white, and glitter gold. They shared some photos with us, take a look and tell us what you think for a lunch time baby shower bash!

Walking into the conference room, they hung the star garlands that we created for the from the ceiling to decorate with the baby clothes garland along with our “twinkle twinkle little star” clouds that were taped against the wall. The garlands were created with various sized stars in the 3 colors: mint, shimmery white, and glitter gold.

As you make your way into the conference room, you will find the dessert table. More of the garlands that we created were hung as part of the backdrop.  We didn’t get to take a photo of the dipped pretzel sticks that we help create, but you can see it on the left side of the table.

We also helped create the cake topper! Giana’s mom is so lucky to have co workers who loves her and threw her a great lunch-time baby shower. And can we talk about that 2 tier cake from Sam’s Club!? It looks amazing and we are sure that it taste delicious!

 

We were able to get some of the garlands back from this baby shower because the awesome host didn’t want to throw them away since it was only used for about an hour. We will be posting them in our gently used section in our Etsy store soon! Stay posted and check often, or just send us a email at simplee.nou@gmail.com to tell us that you are interested in these garlands.

Sweet & Pink Bridal Shower

Oh my! It’s been a while since we had a chance to blog! We have been on churning out all these awesome crafts that we have been a bit behind. But nonetheless, here is a new blog! We wanted to share with you this sweet & pink bridal shower. The Bride-to-Be was showered with lots of love and we were honored to be part of her big day. Thank you to her bridal party for reaching out to us and having us add special touches to the party.

The bridal party gave out cheesecake cups as party favors (or as deserts to eat there) and we helped create the “love is sweet” tags for the jars.

We also designed a matching cupcake toppers.

We also made custom props for the photo booth. Lots of “team bride” that day!

Disney Clubhouse Party

Mickey and Minnie are such iconic characters, that when people ask us to create a Mickey & Minnie themed party, we often find it difficult to differentiate the parties from one another. We want to be original and we want to make sure that everyone gets something different each time.  For this party, we were soo thrilled to help Pretty Chic Events with her vision of Mickey & Minnie, Ericka went with the “Mickey’s Clubhouse” themed birthday and asked us to create some items for her. Check out the final results!

How cute is this dessert table?! So bold and colorful!! It is amazing! We helped with the table banner.

We also helped create the characters that’s part of the clubhouse! Everyone got a different character in a different pose!

Hello Kitty & Friends First Birthday

Growing up, what little girl didn’t like Hello Kitty? So to have the opportunity to help decorate a Hello Kitty & Friends first birthday was just about a dream come true. We wanted to make sure that everything was simple and not overwhelming, keeping it sweet and simple for a sweet little girl. Her mama Mel showed us the outcome and we couldn’t have been more happy with it! It was everything that we envisioned for sweet little Mila.

Here is the main display as a whole before the party started.

We helped with the cupcake toppers & to the left, the centerpieces! The gang is all there: Hello Kitty, Badtz Maru, Keroppi, Pekkle, My Melody, Chococat, Pochacco! So cute!

A close up of the center pieces.

Up close of some of the treats (that we had to keep covered because of flies). But you can see the milestones poster that we designed, along with drizzled pretzel twist, brownie bites, fresh strawberry glazed cheesecake bites, and dipped pretzel sticks as party favors! There are custom labels on the treat bags.

On each side of the desert table, vertical character garlands hung down.

Check out the banner that was created for the high chair! All of Mila’s friends were hanging out with her too!

We also help decorate the entrance of the party. We cut and sewed strips of paper to frame the banner and help show off the different photos of Mila during her first year of life. Of course her Sanrio friends were there to show off the pictures too.

Korean Safari First Birthday

Recently we received pictures of an event we helped create things for. Caleb was turning one . . . and his mama had these wonderful ideas that we were able to create for her. After going back & fourth a few times about themes and what theme would work best for the space that she was renting, Celia settled on Safari. We love this theme because it is fun, colorful, and the theme allows for a lot of creativity because you can go anywhere from cartoon-y to life-like. The possibilities were endless. Take a look at what was created for Caleb’s special day.

We helped create the backdrop that Celia hung from a homemade PVC pipe backdrop stand. This served as the focal point of the party.

On the dessert table, we helped create the cupcake toppers.

Also, on the dessert table, there was his milestone poster highlighting all that he has accomplished in his one year of life. Along with things that he likes.

Another thing that we helped create was the poster for the doljabi board. This was the first time that we ever created this, it was very interesting to learn what this tradition was. We learned that this was a tradition that primarily by Koreans.  What happens is there are various objects that means different things (as explained on the poster) and the baby is encouraged to pick one (or two). It is believed that whatever is choose is be what the child aspire to be, and it will help bless their future in that career/ lifestyle path. Its such a fun and interesting concept! We wondered what Caleb picked and wished him all the best!

Woodland Creature Baby Shower

A few months ago we were blessed to get a a request to help with a baby shower. Mary – host and Aunty – wanted to throw her sister, brother-in-law, and soon-to-be nephew a memorable baby shower.  She wanted to go with the cute woodland creature/ nature theme. If you remember Niko’s First Birthday, we were able to (with Mary’s blessing) use a lot of the same things that we did for Niko and turned that baby shower into a woodland wonderland! Check out the photos!

Check out the gorgeous dessert/ gift table!

The  close up of the banner. With the 3D garland that we created for them in the earth tone colors.

Mary had vases of flowers and moss in soft earth tones colors, lots of greens . . . it all looked so beautiful with the animals sticking out of them. & check out that gold scallop tablecloth!!

We were able to help with the cake topper and cupcake toppers.

We also loved that Mary used the additional cupcake toppers at places other than the dessert table. You can see it here on the rice crispy treats and in the back you see one on a plate of pineapples where all the other food was at.

Lastly, you see the party favors with owl thank you tags. So, so, so cute. Mary gave out mini gummy bears, to fit in with the woodland theme.

Everything about this party was planned to a tee and it all looked so wonderful. If you like what you see, we do have certain items from the party available to purchase from our Etsy store. We have Digital downloads available of the tags that were created for the party that you can find in our Etsy Store. Also in our Gently Used section, since we were able to help Mary host, she told us to take everything back so that someone else can have a cute party. So don’t forget to visit our Gently Used section if you like what you see, or if you see something else. We are constantly adding to that section of the store and perhaps we will have a party in a box ready for you!

Dream Catcher First Birthday

When Mandy’s mama came to us with the idea of a dream catcher’s first birthday, and not just any dream catcher, she wanted a personalized one with “mandy” in the middle. Of course we were up for the challenge. We didn’t quite know what the dream catchers were going to be used for. Other than we were asked to attached a string to the back of the die-cuts and to make it pink with a rustic feel. Check out what we came up with.

The dream catchers were used as centerpiece decorations! As you can see the dream catchers were pink as requested and we backed it with kraft so that you can get the rustic. We also included the glitter gold dream catcher to give an extra element. We loved how these looked with Mandy’s mama’s vision.

So cute! She hand painted the bottles herself to create these gorgeous centerpieces for Mandy’s First Birthday!

If you like what you see and you would like us to custom create something for you, don’t hesitate to contact us! We are available through our Etsy Store or Gmail: simplee.nou@gmail.com. We would love to help bring your vision to life!

Gavin’s Tsum Tsum First Birthday

Gavin’s mama saw our post about Evelyn’s First Birthday – Tsum Tsum themed and she asked us if we can recreate the party, but with her own ideas so that she can have a tsum tsum first birthday for her son Gavin. Of course we were excited that she asked, and if you know us, you know that we have a Gently Used section in our Etsy Store that we update as much as we can with items that we personally created for parties, or if client return items to us because they didn’t want to throw away . .  so we asked her if she was fine with gently used items, and she said YES! So we were so happy that we were able to give her a discount with the gently used items along with make new items for her that fits in the personality of her son. Take a look at what was created.

Look at this awesome dessert table! For Gavin, we helped create the backdrop, with bold colors, the character banner, and the milestone poster. Everything looked so amazing. Gavin’s mama did a great job!!

A close up of Gavin’s milestone poster! Everything that he accomplished in his first year! Very impressive for that cute little man.

Gavin’s party had 2 types of garlands. He had the all character garlands and the garland with circles and characters. Both garlands were strung around the perimeter of the tent of the party as you can see in the first photo.

Lastly, we helped create these cute centerpieces. With some of the sticks already done fro Evelyn’s party, we only had to create a few new ones and Gavin’s mama had them all in a cute painted metal tin.

Since so many of what was given to her was gently used and she was relieved that 80% of the decorations are already done, she gave us back the decorations to help another mama plan a stress free birthday. If you liked what you see here, please contact us for these decorations, we do have them, we just haven’t taken an inventory of how many of each. Or keep checking our Gently Used section to see if it has been posted for purchase. We are adding to that section as quickly as we can in between projects and parties.
