Journey 2 Fit Gym Grand Opening

Our awesome friends at Journey 2 Fit has a wonderful story. If you are in the So. Cal. are and need a great trainer/ workout, those guys are the ones that you should see. They get great results and they will work your butt off to get you into tip-top shape. Through dedication and patience they worked towards opening their own gym. So when they signed the papers and decided to have a grand opening, we wanted to try to help make things even more special. We know a lot of times, when planning a bigger party, small details goes through the fingertips, so we got to work on small touches for their big day.

When walking in there is that beautiful mural and tribute to a great trainer that they worked with – Lavell Mann. On there it says “Not sure what tomorrow will bring, but for the next 24 hours I’ll do whatever it takes to reach my goals,” some great words to live by and to remind us that each day is precious. We helped with the balloon towers at the entrance of their gym.

Also, at the entrance, they had a swag table where you can buy merchandise, we helped create the custom garland for the table. Weights and their logo.

We also helped create goodies for everyone to snack on as they waited for the festivities and for food. We helped drizzled pretzel sticks (which doubled as centerpieces with the logo), twist pretzels and dipped marshmallows in their gym colors.

 

We love it when we get to help create something special for people. Having a grand opening has to be a highlight in any entrepreneur’s life. We are so thankful that they allowed us to help and donate some of our services to add some flare to their big day.

We have components to help create a finishing look for your celebration or we have gently used items that you can use that doesn’t need any work done on it, unless you would like to change the look.

Baby Shower Games

Back in August, we were recruited to create a Onesies and Birds baby shower theme come to life. We revealed the save the date, invite, and welcome signs. We were then asked if we can help make a game booklet. Normally, if you have gone to a baby shower, you know that there are a few games that people play, but this party, EVERYONE was excited to play ALL the games, and there were plenty of games. Below you can see the booklet that we designed. There were 7 different games, all interactive, fun, and customized for the parents-to-be. Each card has a message from friends and family while giving out directions for the game that was to be played.

The first was a cover age to match the theme, the first game was bobbing for baby bottle nipples.

Then there was build a play-doh baby, baby poems, and a story telling game. We’ve never played any of these games in particular, but it sure does sound fun and it takes a lot of active listening and creative writing skills to come up with the everything they are asking. Can you imagine the stories that were thought of?

Then they had a card for everyone to fill out for the baby to read later when she grows up, BINGO with a baby shower twist and a matching game with baby socks! How clever is that!

Let us know what you think of these cards. Or if you would like to use one of these for your baby shower that you are hosting, we can easily edit to put in a quote that you would like to share instead. Contact us at simplee.nou@gmail.com or visit our Etsy page and see what components for a party that we have to offer that you can use to contribute to your vision!

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.

The host for the parents to be wanted something cute and fun that will also be used for the upcoming baby shower.

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.
