Red & Black Speed Dating Event

We love events that allows us to create simple accent pieces for parties/ events. We were asked if we can help make simple table numbers, name tags, and drink tickets for a speed dating event. When we heard speed dating, we must say, we were a little surprised and asked if we can help work the event after setting up, which was fine by the host, she needed some extra hands. Dating is already hard with social media, so being able to step back and watch this event happen was surreal. Everyone came with an open mind and in the short 5 minute conversations that they had with people, the dialog and what they were able to learn was awesome. I wouldn’t have believe it if i didn’t see it for myself. I do hope the participants were able to find some love or new friends at the very least. Check out what we created for this great event!

We designed and printed matching name tags, drink tickets, and table numbers for the event.

Here is a photo of how the host set up the tables with the numbers. She used red & black tissue paper in milk bottles. How cute!

She did return these table numbers to us and they will be up in out Gently Used section in our Etsy store in a few days. These numbers are simple and perfect for any events that you will be hosting/ helping with. We also have other decorations up for sale also or components that can help your party. We also do custom parties as you can see in our past blog post. Just contact us with any ideas that you have and we will be happy to help you if we can.

Classic Barbie Birthday

Growing up, we love Barbies. We loved the fact that Barbie told young girls that we can be anything and everything. We were especially was in love with classic Barbie, we remember going to Toys R Us and seeing the barbie silhouette and getting excited to see what new doll has arrived. So when we got asked if we can do a simple Barbie themed for a special young girl, we got excited to say the least. Barbie is a theme that is easy to over do and over kill. So we kept it simple and classic. Check out what we did.

This is the invite that was created. Jazmin’s mom picked a simple design, she agreed to keep everything simple. We focused on simple and elegant, so we used Barbie’s classic pink, ornate oval frames and Barbie’s iconic profile.

We cut a big Barbie side profile for the dessert wall.

Other random decorations at the party were 5 types of cupcake toppers that followed the theme along with water bottle labels that matched the invites.

Also, we helped create these rosettes with Barbie’s profile that was going to be hung around an outdoor gazebo where the festivities would be.

What do you guys think? We enjoyed creating these for Jazmin’s party & we hoped that she liked it too.

Lightning McQueen 4th Birthday Party

Recently our friends at StarPhotoz asked us to help create decorations for her son’s 4th birthday party. She was going to have a simple birthday party, the theme was Lightning McQueen. Her son loves the move Cars and especially love Lightning McQueen, so of course we obliged and gave Desmond some party decorations to help make his birthday memorable!

 

Check out the dessert table! We helped with creating the banners – checkered flag and all – along with the cupcake toppers.

At each table there were orange cone center pieces! What a cute idea this was! We helped with creating the “4” and Lighting McQueen cutout.

Here is a photo that we took prior to delivery to show the other items that came in the party package. There was a checked flag only banner/ garland and signage to show “adult fuel” vs “kid fuel” along with a closer up photos of the various cupcake toppers that were created: smaller flags, stop sign, “4” and a smaller Lightning McQueen.

The host for the parents to be wanted something cute and fun that will also be used for the upcoming baby shower. The awesome host, Sok & Ly, decided that they wanted to use Disney Tsum Tsum after seeing the other birthday parties that we did. They asked to at first keep it just Mickey & Minnie since it was a gender reveal, they didn’t want to let the gender slip beforehand. Check out the photos that they sent to us.

You can see the simple dessert table that Sok & Ly created. We assisted with the banner on the table along with other things on the table.

2017 has definitely been a great year, lots of baby showers and first birthdays. Another party that we were able to help put together is this one for our awesome cousin! He and his wife decided to have a Paddington Bear themed shower for their little one: Mathis. We loved the idea of the classic book and teddy bear friend. Check out the photos that were shared with us.

Walking into their clubhouse, guest were greeted with Paddington Bear train signs.

For the focal point, there were glitter blue raindrop garlands with a Paddington bear garland and banner. We also made last minute labels for the party favor bags . . . teddy grahams of course.

So when we were asked to create decorations for a 40th birthday that was Pacman themed, to say we were excited is an understatement. 8-bit gaming style with simple colors and a fun new theme! Check out what we made. Thank to the host of the party for sharing photos from Kira (her aunt) 40th birthday celebration.

We created giant letters and ghost for the backdrop/ center focal point at the dessert table along with the birthday banner.

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.
