Party Recap- Boho Chic Baby Shower

When one of your favorite gal pals calls you up and tells you she's hostessing a boho chic baby shower, complete with tee pees and dream catchers, you should jump at the chance to design the paper goodies!

This baby shower honored a sweet couple who welcomed their first baby, a little girl, in style! We designed the save the date, invitation, napkin, milk bottle labels and favor tags. The hostesses erected a real life tee pee in the backyard and displayed mini cupcakes and other sweet bites on large slabs of wood. So adorable!


Party Recap: Baseball, Baby!

A sweet client of ours hosted a baby shower for her brother and sister-in-law and we were hired to design the invitations and food table. What a fun event for this little slugger!

Sneak Peek: Baby Boy Baseball Shower

Whenever a client hires me to do a party for them, I go all out. As I've said before though, the first piece of the party the guests will see is the invitation so it is IMPERATIVE that the invite grab their attention and make them want to see the rest of the detail put into the event.

This client is showering her sister-in-law with a baby shower, baseball themed. (And with all boys in my house, this was right up my alley!) More to come after the event...I cannot wait to show off the party details!

Think Outside the Envelope!

Almost a year ago...we designed a MOST fabulous baby shower for my cousin. I wanted to share a few pictures with you to show that invites don't just have to go into an envelope, and the baby can get other gifts besides diapers and onesies (think melamine plate and bowl set, found here). Interested in creating a party that is "outside the box?" Contact us and we'll hook you up!

Party Recap- An Elegant Baby Shower

Hostessing a baby shower is no small feat. And when it's your British sister-in-laws shower...well, let's just say that no detail should be left unturned. You see, my brother, native Texan, married a British gal. In Britain, baby showers are not really a "thing." So when they told us they were coming to visit this summer, I knew a fabulous party was in order to celebrate Caroline.

The parents-to-be don't know the sex of the little one, so instead of flooding my home with blue and pink, I chose to go the classy, elegant route by using metallic golds, with accents of white and black. And was gorgeous!

Between the Sheets Co. custom designed all the paper goods, which included the invitations, party banner, food signs, baby wish cards, beverage napkins, and favor tags. We had a large wreath custom designed using metallic white and gold netting. Tied to the wreath were small items such as baby lotion, teething toys, and baby spoons.

The food we served was a mixture of sweet and savory, the hit being the mini quiche made by one of our hostesses. We wanted to bring a little bit of British tea time food to the shower and did so by making finger sandwiches and scones, two of Caroline's favorite bits. Also served were caprese skewers, fruit salad, and vegetable crudites, served in short glasses with a spoonful of dressing.

The food was displayed on gorgeous gold, glass and white serving pieces, all of which sat on a crisp white tablecloth and gold sequin table runner. Each food sign was enclosed in an elegant white frame.

Inside a custom made baby cradle, painted white and sprinkled with gold glitter sat the centerpiece of the extravagant floral arrangement of hydrangeas, lilies, roses and daisies.

We really wanted to 'wow' the guests with the dessert, and I think we did just that! The cake was a two tier, vanilla flavored cake, iced to perfection with delicious white and gold butter cream icing. Adorning the top of the cake was a baby rattle made from gold fondant and a sweet banner reading, Congratulations Caroline & Scott.

As the gifts were opened, each guest received a 5 x 7" card to fill in their wishes for Baby. Caroline loved this idea and had a blast reading through the special notes each guest penned.

As the celebration came to a close, each guest left with a small golden box which held two square bath fizzies from Fresh. Each box was tied with white stain ribbon and custom designed favor tag.

Caroline had an amazing time and we loved spoiling her with a traditional baby shower.

Party Recap- We're Camo for Cuddles

A friend of mine from high school reached out to us a few weeks back with a request that threw us for a loop. She was hostessing a baby shower for twins. A boy and girl set. She had the cutest idea to use camo and pink for all the details. The invite read, "Son of a gun, there's more than one!" Talk about sassy.

In true personalization fashion, we came up with all the party goods she needed to celebrate the sweet couple and their twins. We loved customizing the banner, favor stickers, melamine bowls, and water bottle labels.

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 and gifts!

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.
