Aulani Wedding – Hawaii

We love it when we are able to help with weddings, at any capacity. We were enlisted to help create table numbers for an elegant wedding in Hawaii at the Aulani resort. The couple saw our “happily ever after” cake topper and reached out asking if we would be able to do table numbers, along with the cake topper, for them. Of course we excitedly said yes! Check out what we were able to make for them.

Here is the photo of the cake topper.

Here are photos of the table numbers in the floral centerpieces. We love the simplicity of the numbers. It was written out and cut on glitter gold card stock. We did a mirror image so that the backside is also glitter gold vs just being plain white with the dowel rod showing.

 

Thank you so much to the lovely couple for sharing these photos with us. We love being able to see how out creations are being used. We wish them a lifetime of happiness!

Hello Baby – Baby Shower

When we started this baby shower, the mama to be already knew that she wanted to have her daughter’s first birthday as “Sanrio and Friends.” With that, she wanted to make sure her baby shower had subtle hints of Hello Kitty so that it all ties in together. We decided that we will use shades of pink and going a “hello baby” theme. Take a look at what we did . . .we even helped with the desserts!

The “hello baby” banner that we created. It hung above all the goodies. Notice the hello kitty cupcakes?

A display of the offerings! YUM!

We helped with drizzled and sprinkled pretzels.. These are simple treats that are low commitment to the party guest, they can be made a few days in advance and kept in the freezer until it was ready to be used. Pretzels are easy to snack on and who doesn’t love a good sweet and savory treat?! The goodies also doubled up as a party favor for everyone.

Here is a photo of the beautiful cake with the simple cake topper that we created.

We are so sad we didn’t get a photo of the to-go treat bags! They had these adorable Hello Kitty thank you tags that we create just for the party!

We helped create game cards for the party guest to play and win  prizes. Also, if you can see on the table, there are Hello Kitty bow confetti. The confetti gave a subtle hint of the theme and it was sprinkled everywhere that we could find an empty spot.

Here is another photo of confetti that was scattered on the table and an image of the signage that we created for another simple baby shower activity: “Please offer some advice for the parent’s-to-be or a sweet message for Mila”

We hoped you liked this party!! Let us know if you liked what you saw and if you need help with your next event! We will be happy to help bounce ideas to help you narrow it down to specifics or if you need us to help create and craft, we will be happy to help you with that also!

Hogwarts Themed Baby Shower

To say that we (or one of us) were excited to get the opportunity to create a Hogwarts themed baby shower would be an understatement. Harry Potter and his friends have been part of the family for a while now, reading and enjoying the movies have become a a great way to revisit the wizarding world when there was downtime. So trying to create a magical experience and capturing all the elements was something that we had the honor of doing. Check out this Hogwarts inspired baby shower that we help create!

IMG_20160910_122744 IMG_20160910_134131The dessert table . . . with the moving brick wall, the Hogwarts Crest + House Crest, the Sorting Hat, lightening bolt lollipops, chocolate frogs, and the Deathly Hallows cupcake toppers. We were left to only wonder what house baby Oliver would get sorted into . . .

When entering the baby shower, you were “stepping” into platform 9 3/4 and owls were mailing various letters out to characters. If you were lost, there were plenty of arrows the help point you in the right direction

IMG_20160910_122125 IMG_20160910_122147

Each table was created with care. The centerpieces included what class you were enrolling yourself in along with the books and symbols that correlated with the class (just in case you didn’t make it on time to Diagon Alley to pick up supplies) and a nice reminder of Hogwarts. Do you recognize Buckbeak and Rita Skeeter?  The centerpieces also double as a party favor since they were succulents that were being grown for all the herbology students.

We love the simplicity of the theme, nothing was over done and everything was done tastefully. Many times it is so easy to get wrapped up in doing EVERYTHING that you want for a theme, that it becomes too much and looks too much. As much as we wanted to take all the major aspects of the books and movies and books and create it for the baby shower, we knew that it was feasible, that’s just way too much stuff. What was create was the perfect balance! If you like what you see, you can find some of these items in our gently used section of our Etsy store.

Woodland Creatures First Birthday

Nicholas’ mama contacted us to help create a wonderful birthday for her soon to be one year old. Nicholas “Niko” is such a cute and happy kiddo so we happily obliged. When she told us what her idea was, woodland creatures, she already had a few key items from a friend who threw a woodland themed party also. We wanted to make sure that with those key items, she doesn’t end up with the same party. Lots of times we notice that when friends share party supplies they end up with the same look and the same vibe . . . we didn’t want that for Niko, we wanted his to be different. Take a look at what was created!IMG_0205 (1)

When Niko’s mama told us that she wanted a plank board wall, we literally thought that her husband was just creating a 6×6 wall that will lean against something then be thrown out after the party. Boy were we wrong, the wall was actually one side of their garage, the wood planks is semi-permanently glued to the outside garage wall. WE LOVE IT! Look at that photo! EVERYTHING about it screams rustic and woodland! It looks so amazing with the banner that we created, the wooden shelves that held his photos, and the wooden stump that was for the cake.

IMG_3661 (1) IMG_3651 (1)

We created 3 types of tags for Niko’s party. The tags were for the various party favors that were on the dessert table (see the first photo). One tag was for a bag full  s’more mix consisting of teddy grahams, chocolate chips, and mini marshmallows. A second tag was for the mini jars of MnMs and a third for the mini popcorn bags.

IMG_3668 IMG_20170419_222513_01

Look at these cute centerpieces!! Every table had a different set of animals in various sizes to adore.

We loved everything about this party. the woodland themed definitely carried throughout everything. If you liked what you see here, Niko’s mama did return a some of the items that she was able to collect when cleaning-up. She wanted to make sure that others had a chance to throw a memorable party. Items for this party can be found at our Etsy Shop or send us a message if you see something like you would like us to recreate for you.

Bride-to-Be – Sage and Lace Themed

We love being able to help create simple touches for any party. Sunny’s bridal party asked SimpleeNou to create just that for a sage and lace themed bridal shower for the bride to be. Look at the simple chic ideas they came up with and that we were able to bring to life. We hope you like it. Also, the bridal party was so wonderful and knew that our Etsy store has a gently used section, that they graciously returned what they could so that others can recreate their vision. So definitely check out the gently used section of our Etsy store to see if the items are still available if you like what you see.

IMG_20170326_134855

Check out this simple desert table! The bridal party opted for flags, circles, and scalloped circles for the cake topper instead of going with a traditional cake topper.

IMG_20170326_134841

Next to the dessert table was a simple banner that we created. Having it against a clear frame is such a great touch! We love the simplicity and how the pink flowers really helped the sage and cream color of the banner shine.

IMG_20170326_134824

The table set up! We are suckers for a great table runner and table set up. The theme of sage and lace really shows throughout the entire party. We also spy more of those flags that we created for the cake in the flower centerpieces!

We loved everything about this bridal shower. Thank you to the bridal party for sharing with us. We love getting photos of how SimpleeNou items were used at events! Don’t forget to contact us if you like what you see and would like it in a different color scheme. We can definitely help you recreate or create with your own spin!

 

Oh Baby and Bunnies Baby Shower

We are always so thrilled when we have a chance to do something new and different. This time, Aubrey’s mama wanted an “oh baby” and bunnies themed baby shower for her soon to be bundle of joy. Take a look at what was created, we hope that you like it as much as we enjoyed creating everything.

Evelyn Tsum Tsum First Birthday

Hi everyone, it has been a very eventful start of summer for us here at SimpleeNou that our blogging fell behind. But fear not! We are back and will be blogging like crazy to share all of our awesome events with you. First up is Evelyn’s first birthday – Tsum Tsum style. For anyone who is unsure of what “tsum tsum” is . . . allow us to share with you! “Tsum Tsum” derives from the Japanese word tsumu meaning “to stack.” So the plush toys are shaped and designed to stack on top of each other to form a totem or a pyramid. We loved that Evelyn’s mama decided to have a fresh new way of incorporating Disney into her daughter’s first birthday. Check out the photos and let us know what you think.

We helped create the backdrop design, with features stacked Disney tsum tsum characters on the side. Check out that cake also!! All those fondant characters! SO CUTE!

Desmond’s Micky Mouse Themed Birthday

We have been getting a lot of specialized themed birthday. We love it when we get Micky Mouse because it allows us to see what interpretation the clients has for their version of Mickey Mouse. We loved Desmond’s mommy interpretation of classic meet rustic.

IMG_20151002_145854

She asked us to use classic Mickey and to incorporate with the kraft and yellow. So we incorporated the kraft into the banner, giving a great contrast to the black Mickey cutouts and into the cupcake toppers.

TableProps

We went with traditional colors for the centerpieces with the yellow as an accent color.

Table

Here is how the banner looked at the dessert table. We loved it against the checkered pattered table cloth.

East Providence – Relay for Life

A while back we were asked if we will be willing to donate some of our goodies to a great cause. The girls at the East Providence – Relay for Life team asked if we can cut out stars for them so that participants can write reason why they are participating. Being supporters of the American Cancer Society, we happily obliged. They had the theme of “Lights, Camera, Action” and shared these photos with us. We must say we are in love with how the stars were used and the outcome. Thank you to the East Providence – Relay for Life team for sharing these photos with us and allowing us to be part of this.
