introducing ladybug

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-collection1

This collection has been in the back of my mind for months. I knew I wanted to create a ladybug collection, but I didn’t want to use only the traditional red and black color palette. Then when we started creating the new “little sailor” collection, I knew that adding this beautiful Tiffany blue was the answer I was looking for. 

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-candy-labels

As with all of our new collections, we created candy buffet labels. There are eight pre-filled labels (rock candy, licorice, cookies, lollipops, fruit chews, chocolate candies, gumballs and salt water taffy) and there is a sheet of blank labels so you can print (print the label and then overprint the candy name) any candies you like.

The blank labels are also darling as placecards.

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-favor-tag

For favors, this collection offers a “thank you” tag (tin buckets found at Target for a $1.00!),

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-cello

and a cello topper. These are wonderful for pre-packaging candy or cookie favors.

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-beverage-wrapper

As for beverages, we designed a bottle wrap. We show it here with water, but these also look great on old fashioned soda bottles or on hurricanes to dress up your centerpieces.

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-straw-slips

And straw slips (six designs in all) are a must so there is no drink confusion, especially with little ones. 

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-napkin-rings

And what would your placesetting be without an adorable napkin ring? Oh, and see the tag on the pail? That is the cupcake pick.

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-straw-display

I also used it to embellish my straw vase. There is just a multitude of ways you can use all of these printables.

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-cupcake-set

And I had to show you this image of the cupcake picks and wrappers once more. You’ll notice that I used a circle punch and then overlayed the same design on top with a scallop punch (foam adhesive square in the middle to give it dimension; all easy finds at the craft store), but I wanted you to focus in on the cake plate. Do you see the paper inset? It’s the same design as the wrapper, but in blue. These 7×11 sheets (in blue with red and in red with blue) will be available when you purchase the entire collection to help you “complete” the look of your table. 

the-celebration-shoppe-ladybug-banner

Last but not least, you’ll need a banner to hang above your dessert bar. This image actually only shows four of the eight patterns available in the printable. And if you’re looking for a shortcut on the banner, use hot glue (my favorite crafting tool) to adhere the cardstock triangles to your ribbon and you’re done!

This collection will be in the shoppe within a few days and as always, I hope we’ve helped inspire your next celebration!

As a follow-up to my post introducing our newest collection, little sailor, here are a few shots of the placesetting I chose. I really liked how these blue and white polka dot plates and napkins rimmed in brown pop when paired with the red tablecloth and printables collection. As for the placemat, I just used a sheet of nautical inspired cardstock (Water Waves from Express Yourself Creatively) from the craft store.

the-celebration-shoppe_little-sailor-placecard

For baby showers especially, a lovely placecard is a must!

the-celebration-shoppe_little-sailor-napkin-ring3

And the of course a cute napkin ring to tie the plates and napkins in with the printable collection.

Make sure you check out the rest of this collection in my original post and in the shoppe. And if you’ve not already, friend us on facebook for sneek peeks into what’s coming up next! What’s black and red with dots all over? {wink} 

As always, I hope we’ve inspired you for your next celebration!

introducing little sailor

the-celebration-shoppe-little-sailor-collection

We’ve been working on two new collections for a few weeks now and I’m so excited to share the first, a little sailor birthday or baby shower party, with you.

I’m completely in love with this whale. It’s perfect for either a nautical themed baby shower or a little boy birthday party. And this color palette just made me giddy when we were putting it all together. It’s the perfect combination of bright and soft.

the-celebration-shoppe_little-sailor-cake-plate2

For the cupcake printables, we paired bright nautical images with a lovely light blue patterned cupcake wrapper. I’m a huge fan of mixing patterns to get a “wow” effect. It’s much more interesting than matchy matchy.

the-celebration-shoppe_little-sailor-mini-banner

As for the cake plate, I decided to create a mini-banner made from this collection’s straw slip patterns. I just snipped them into triangles and assembled them using a hot glue gun and red thread. I really love how it turned out.

the-celebration-shoppe_little-sailor-choc-anchor-cupcake

And last but not least, instead of using our fun cupcake picks on both levels, I used the anchor design, in the striped pick, to make red chocolate transfer anchors. (It’s much easier than you might think. It’s a little like tracing a picture except you’re using melted chocolate in a resealable bag with an icing tip and wax paper.)

the-celebration-shoppe_little-sailor-beverage-wrappers

We created nautical beverage wrappers sporting our little whale that can double as hurricane wraps or even flat napkin bands.

the-celebration-shoppe_little-sailor-candy-label3

 And of course we had to create dessert labels. The collection has eight pre-filled labels plus a sheet of blank labels so that you can overprint any treats you like. (These cookies were flooded with white icing and embellished with the same chocolate transfer anchors as the cupcakes and they were delish!)

the-celebration-shoppe_little-sailor-candy-labels

The pre-filled labels include sugar cookies, licorice, rock candy, salt water taffy, chocolate candies, fruit chews, lollipops and gumballs.

the-celebration-shoppe_little-sailor-cello

And of course cello toppers are a must. We filled these with red sour balls. Yum!

the-celebration-shoppe_little-sailor-thank-you-tag

Or, send your guest home with a little goody bag embellished with our “thank you” tags. These adorable buckets were found at Target for $2.50 each. Wish I had them for the shoppe.

the-celebration-shoppe_little-sailor-straw-slips2

We also designed these adorable straw slips, six patterns in all, that are great to label your guests’ drinks.

the-celebration-shoppe_little-sailor-photo-mat

Other touches include this 4×6 picture frame mat,

the-celebration-shoppe_little-sailor-banner2

flag banner (four patterns),

the-celebration-shoppe_little-sailor-rock-candy-jar

and this rock candy jar embellished with a wooden anchor from the craft store. 

You can shop the little sailor party invitationfull set of nautical printable party supplies, and thank you notes in the shoppe.

As always, I hope we’ve helped inspire you for your next celebration!

introducing luau

the-celebration-shoppe-luau-party-collection

You’re going to want to grab your hula skirt or your Hawaiian shirt for this one because we’re having a luau! Our new luau collection includes custom invitations, thank you cards, decor, cookie cutters and nine coordinating printables from our normal cupcake picks and wrappers to picture frame mattes to show off the guest of honor.

the-celebration-shoppe_luau-feature

We start off with our palm tree and flip-flop dinner and dessert plates. They’re fun and fresh and perfect for summer. We actually have three coordinating napkins with this set. A flip-flop beverage napkin, a palm tree guest towel and a solid fuchsia/hot pink napkin if you want to use our flip-flop napkin rings.

the-celebration-shoppe_luau-purple-dot-cup

As for cups, we chose two. We’re offering our hot pink polka dot shatterproof cups and we’ve added a new purple polka dot shatterproof cup. Both go beautifully with our straw slips (come in five designs from hibiscus flowers to stripes). I wish I could offer the bamboo placemats too, but we found these at Target in the dollar section along with the table height tiki torches, actually they were $2.50, but still, right?! 

the-celebration-shoppe_palm-tree-surf-board-cookie-placecard1

And these are the luau cookie placecards that I blogged about a few days ago.

the-celebration-shoppe_luau-menu-matte

For this collection I wanted to offer a “Menu” matte for the buffet table (the matte is 5×7 with a 4×6 inset so you can print the design and then overprint your menu),

the-celebration-shoppe_luau-frozen-refreshments-matte

as well as a “Frozen Refreshments” matte (5×7) that could be perfect for anything from smoothies to ice cream to frozen daquaris {yum!}.

the-celebration-shoppe_luau-party-ice-cream-service-2

These are just scoops of sherbert served in icie cones and serving springs (available right now at Target).

the-celebration-shoppe_luau-party-picture-frame-matte

And this adorable little girl is a friend of mine’s daughter. It was taken at a recent birthday party and I thought it was very appropriate to showcase our guest of honor picture frame matte. A beautiful way to greet your guests and remind everyone who deserves all the attention!

thecelebrationshoppe_luaucupcakefeature1

Oh, and we can’t forget to feed our guests lots of sweets. I blogged about our luau cupcake collection a few days ago, but I thought it worth repeating my hula skirt cake plate again. {wink}

the-celebration-shoppe_luau-cupcakes1

Here are close-ups of the cupcake picks and wrappers. I admit that I’m planning to have at least a small gathering this summer and use these babies. They are just adorable and will be a great precursor to vacation at the beach!

the-celebration-shoppe_luau-bottle-wrappers-2

We also designed water bottle wrappers, that can double as hurricane wrappers or even as a flat napkin ring/flatwear wrapper.

the-celebration-shoppe_luau-cello-toppers

And last but not least, your guests can’t go home empty handed. Pack up some goodies in a little cello bag,

the-celebration-shoppe_luau-favor-bag1

or even a white lunch bag with a nice favor tag (read original post about easy favor bags). Maybe send some of those cupcakes to go!

Stop over at the shoppe and check out the entire collection. As always, I hope we’ve helped inspire your next celebration!
