Party Recap: Baby Marco Baby Sprinkle

In true fashion, when one of my close pals shared her exciting news of the upcoming arrival of baby #3, the wheels started turning for designs and decor for a 'sprinkle.' For those of you who are scratching your head...a sprinkle is not a full blown baby shower, but more of a celebration to show the mama to be love and give her the necessities she'll need for the baby. (Typically second, third, fourth children don't get a huge shower...)

Anyway- the hostesses and I planned an absolutely fabulous morning brunch complete with mini candy and popcorn bar, mimosas, muffins, fruit, mini quiche, veggie's, cheese and a wonderfully custom decorated cookie for dessert (or favor if you wanted it for the road!).

Between the Sheets Co did all of the decor including customized napkins, paper cups, invitations and printed envelopes, favor stickers, banner, food signs and paper straws. The sprinkle was so fun and mama was celebrated with love of gifts!

Party Recap: A Glitter and Gold Celebration

Oh pals. I absolutely love working with husbands of my gal pals. This party was an absolute blast to plan because he gave me free reign to design and come up with every.single.detail. The theme of the party was gold, glitter and turquoise. It was elegant and classy and oh-so enjoyable!

Between the Sheets Co. designed the invites, cocktail and dinner napkins, food signs, party favors and of course we had gold straws! The birthday girls aunt created an over the top dessert and candy table, complete with a wishing tree and phenomenal flowers.

This party was part of our Party in a Box!© ideas. It was the Bash. To find out more about our Party in a Box!© simply email us:

March- a Month of Madness!

Hi sweet pals! You know that feeling you have when a new month starts? The feeling that it’s a clean slate and you’ll have some do-overs, or even some time to really focus on what is important? The month of March is SO not that month for me. Not only is it my son’s birthday month, but it’s also my mom’s and mine! Lots of celebrating and parties going on this month, and to make it even more complex, we toss in Spring Break and a mini vaca at the end of the month and whew- it’s a whirlwind.

My mom hit a milestone this March by turning 29 for the 31st time, so in true BTSCo. fashion, we are doing the most fab family dinner for her this weekend. Everything from flowers, cocktail napkins, even party favors have been thought of. The dinner is going to be a local eatery and I’ll have pics from the party later next week.

There are even a few surprises up my sleeve for the birthday girl. They include hand written notes from over 60 family members and pals. Truly a fun weekend will be had by all! Stay tuned for the pics. It’s going to knock your sock off. Here’s a little tease of the invite we created.

Party Recap- Blush and Bashful Bridal Shower

A few months before Christmas, we were hired to not only help design and set up a bridal shower, but we were also asked to help hostess. Not the norm in our business, but the bride happened to be one of my best friends.

Taking her love for anything pink into consideration, we decided to go all out with shades of pink. From the invitation to the menus, cakes and even the candy bar, each and every detail had a touch of pink.

The invitation we designed was done so around a very "swanky" and "classy" feel, as the event was to be held at the Petroleum Club of Fort Worth. When creating this invitation and artwork, we wanted something classic, yet fun. I think we achieved both with the illustration and the stripes. The diecut shape of the invitation added that extra "umpf" and the lined envelope was the icing on the cake, so to speak.

With over 70 guests in attendance, the hostesses decided it would be a wonderful idea to set the luncheon menu and offer the guests a choice of beverage. The menus were designed and placed at each place setting. We set each table with pink chargers, silver napkin rings, and white linens. This really showed off that details do matter!

In the center of each table, we had the most gorgeous arrangements in shades of pinks and accented with lime green and white flowers. Each arrangement was carefully designed in a large bubble vase and it was spectacular. 

As each guest arrived, they were offered a beverage and of course, the beverage was served with a personalized cocktail napkin and pink and white striped straw. (It's all in the details!)

After a delicious lunch, the bride then began to open her gifts. It was so fun to see all the goodies she got from dear friends and family. During the marathon present time, the cake was served. And- WOW. The cakes were not only gorgeous, but delicious as well. A local bakery designed and baked the cakes with a beautiful rose shaped icing, in a shade of pink, of course!

When the shower was nearing wrap up time, the hostesses opened up the candy bar...with you guessed it! Pink candy! This detail was the one thing the bride was absolutely giddy about. She'd never attended a party where there had been a candy bar. Can you believe it took over 50 pounds of candy to make this sugary sweet table so fun? We made a fabric banner with scraps of material from various other projects, ordered clear Chinese take out boxes and adorned them with a custom designed label, and even tied a pink satin bow onto each. The bride was in heaven with her very own table of candy.

By being on both sides of the planning process, both as the designer and the hostess, this was quite a challenge. We loved each and every detail and it was appreciated by the other hostesses and the bride, herself. Please contact us if you'd like some help concepting the theme, decor, favors, or even the invitation to any party or shower.
