new farmers market printables

the-celebration-shoppe-farmers-market-mat2

My “on the farm” birthday party collection continues to be one of my personal favorites (I know some of you likely think I say that about all of them, and to some degree you’d be right, but this one is really close to the top of the list!) so when we started talking about adding to some collections, I knew that I wanted to create the printables to style a farmers market dessert table.

the-celebration-shoppe-farm-banner-wl

With our new collection you can set the stage for your little farmer with our farmers market mat. I framed it in a simple rustic wooden frame I found at Target for $2 and then hot glued a wide piece of yellow ribbon to the back to hang it from. It could easily hang on the fence or on the back of a fun red wagon. Next we strung our red and yellow gingham animal banner on twine from the home improvement store (a touch of hot glue and you’re done).

Once you’ve selected all the goodies your little farmer and all his farm hands might love, gather up some rustic containers, like garden gathering baskets, galvanized containers and mason jars, from around the house and print your treats out on our dessert table tags. The printable comes with two sheets of pre filled candy names and one blank sheet. The first pre filled sheet includes: cow tails, kettle korn, milk duds,

the-celebration-shoppe-farm-dessert-tag-pn

peanuts, and

the-celebration-shoppe-farm-animal-cutout-cookies

oink! moo! baa! for our new on the farm butter cookie collection that brings our paper designs to life in sugar. (Baked, hand iced and shipped via our fabulous partners at Sweet Tooth Cottage.)

the-celebration-shoppe-farm-cookie-rounds

In addition to the yummy cutouts, we’re also going to offer cookie rounds topped with our fun animal characters printed onto edible sugar paper. Trust me, they are iced with buttercream and they are delish!

the-celebration-shoppe-farm-stick-candy-mat

 Okay I’m going to tell my age here, but when I was really young {wink} my grandmother’s pharmacy still had a malt shop counter in it. There was of course tons of candy and these little sugar sticks fit right in. So for this new collection we created a “olde fashion stick candy” mat (perfect fit for a 4×6 frame) and displayed it on a mini unfinished wood easel.

the-celebration-shoppe-farm-dessert-tags-tf

The second prefilled dessert tag sheet that I mentioned above has common flavor names like blueberry, tuti-fruity, cotton candy, root beer,  raspberry, watermelon, licorice and lemonade (great names for putting the real thing on your dessert table too!).

the-celebration-shoppe-farm-animal-cupcakes

These little guys are part of the current collection, along with the custom print invitation, table decor, printable napkin rings and printable “thanks y’all” tags, but they were too cute not to share again.

the-celebration-shoppe-farm-cello-topper

But these cello toppers are new and a perfect way to wrap up favors to go.

the-celebration-shoppe-farm-lemonade-stand

And what is a farmers market without lemonade?!

the-celebration-shoppe-farm-lemonade-mat

So we created a lemonade mat and

the-celebration-shoppe-farm-straw-slip-wl

straw slips in five designs.

the-celebration-shoppe-farm-milk-tags

We also created “moo!” tags so you can promote healthy drinks like chocolate and strawberry milk {twitch of the mouth}.

the-celebration-shoppe-farm-oj-tag

Actually, the sheet does include a generic “moo” milk that you could use for white milk and an orange juice tag too.  {We do try!}

the-celebration-shoppe-farm-bev-wrap-ww

Or you could just serve up a little “well water.” Good farms must have a natural water source nearby!

the-celebration-shoppe-farm-bev-wrap-a

No natural spring on the property, no worries. We created two additional wrappers to go with the beverage printable set (all three for $3.50), a generic animal wrapper and a larger “moo milk” wrapper.

the-celebration-shoppe-farm-frame-mat1

And I couldn’t resist creating a photo mat for all you moms that might want to show off your little farmer on his or her big day. I have the perfect picture of my youngest: cowboy hat and a serious “I’m a big boy!” expression.

Shop all of these items, the invitation and thank you notes in the shoppe!

And as always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!

Little Ava turned four a few weeks ago and her mom, Suzy, made sure she was treated like a princess!

Don’t you just love the DIY ribbon topiary? Suzy made two of them! And did you notice the “A” and the “4″ woven into each?

customer-suzy-princess-ava-table

The color palette didn’t stop at the dessert table. Suzy adorned her guest tables with pink and green polka dot table decor from my princess collection, edible centerpieces and tulle chair wraps. Just lovely!

Here’s another look at this beautiful table showing off the fun crown favors.

sneak peek: farm sweets

the-celebration-shoppe-farm-collection-animal-cutout-cookies

A few weeks ago I shared in a blog post (with a storyboard) that we are expanding my “on the farm” birthday party collection. I’m very excited to announce that we shot all of the new printables for a farmers market dessert table, as well as several other items yesterday including these fabulous melt in your mouth butter cookies from Sweet Tooth Cottage.

I’ve hinted before that all of my designs will be available in cookie form soon. That day is drawing closer and we have a big announcement planned, but until then if you have interest in the candy corn (blog post showing cookies), harvest (blog post showing cookies) or this new farm collection, e-mail us at customercare@celebrationshoppe.com and we’ll share more details including pricing.

And I had to throw this little guy into the sneak peek too. I’m a southern girl (originally from Alabama, but I’ve lived in Mississippi, Texas and Tennessee too; finally settling in Ohio), so I loved adding the “y’all” touch! {wink}

Happy Friday everyone and much more on this collection and others next week!

Before I share this lovely party, I wanted to say that I’m back from Disney (had a blast with the kids; I’ll be sharing more about our adventures shortly) and even though it was a quick trip, I’m refreshed. It’s such a creative place and it was so relaxing that I have a ton of ideas to get working on. Also, thank you to the wonderful ladies that blogged for me while I was away! If you missed them, check out their posts: pumpkin art, autumn pasta party and easy Halloween candy apples.

Back to the party! A few months ago we participated in a mom blogger project with Mom magazine. Jamie from Pure Joy was one of the mom bloggers that we met and I have to say, she’s got a ton of energy! She’s a photographer, blogger and of course a mommy. Oh, and did I mention that she’s VERY pregnant, like any day now pregnant. In the midst of all the million things she has going on, she still managed to pull together a beautiful party for her little honey’s fourth birthday using our Buzz collection printables… by the way, she made the birthday outfit too!

What are you going to do when you get a fabulous feature in Columbus Parent Magazine? Go to Disney World! Okay, it just worked out that way, but I’m still excited! I’m packing the kids up and we’re headed down to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party this weekend. I’m not sure who is happier, them or me! I’m a HUGE Disney fan and we’ve been several times, even before the kids were born, but never at Halloween! 

No worries though, I’ve arranged to have some wonderful bloggers keep you entertained in my absence! And although Bakerella isn’t here herself, these adorable Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse cake pops are. Hop over to her blog for all the details including pictorials!

Have a great weekend and I’ll chat with you next week!

It’s chocked-full of all things family from what events are happening around the area to tips on identifying childhood illnesses to planning the perfect family movie night and all that is in between.

For my first assignment, I had the opportunity to share my son Alex’s sixth birthday party where we mixed, bubbled, poured and tested our way through several real experiments and then several bowls of ice cream! To read the full article, you can flip to pages 44 and 45 of the virtual issue, or you can view the online version of the article and leave me a comment, which I would LOVE and APPRECIATE since this is my first contribution.

inspired ladybug nursery

 ladybug-inspired-nursery1

I’m so excited to share this with you today! Carrie of Half Baked – The Cake Blog has finally shared pictures of her little Sadie’s nursery. She and I were chatting a few months ago and she mentioned that our ladybug collection inspired her. I was thrilled then that she loved the design, but now I’m ecstatic. She did such a beautiful job incorporating our little ladybug into her baby’s nursery and I couldn’t be more proud! Here’s the story in her words…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After nine long months of baking, our little girl has arrived!  Sadie Anne is here and we could not be more thrilled.  She is by far the best thing I’ve ever created and I am just in awe.  While I take some time to be with my family, Half Baked will be visited by some extraordinary guest bloggers serving up amazing Fall inspiration.  Everything from creative DIY’s to parties and fabulous cakes.  Trust me, you won’t even miss me!  But before I go, I thought I’d share with you some pictures of Sadie’s ladybug nursery.  It’s times like this when I wish I had a better camera, but you get the idea!

I wanted to design a room that would grow with her and not be the typical pink baby room.  I fell in love with these sheets from Caden Lane and then built upon them creating a turquoise, red and chocolate brown color scheme to accent the predominantly white bedding.  While racking my brain for a ‘theme’ that worked with these colors and was still appropriate for a little girl, I saw this adorable ladybug party collection by The Celebration Shoppe.  Instantly I was inspired to include ladybugs and flowers.  Let’s take a look…

Modern Ladybug Nursery in Turquoise & Red

Modern Ladybug Nursery in Turquoise & Red

While I purchased some items, I also made some of the details myself.  After selecting the sheets and changing pad cover from Caden Lane, I purchased a yard of their fabric to make other items for the room myself including the ladybug pillow, lampshade, wall art and Bobby cover (not shown).  I also made the pom poms, ladybug wall decals (inspired by The Celebration Shoppe) and the mobile (inspired by Frazier & Wing).

I hope you enjoy this little peak into our home and into Sadie’s nursery.  While I look forward to enjoying these next few weeks with my new family, you can look forward to some fabulous guest posts here on Half Baked. We have quite the line up of guest bloggers set, so be sure to check back and see what they have in store for us!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Congratulations Carrie! Enjoy your time off and I hope you’ll share pictures of your little bug very soon!

Terri of Crafty Working Mommy hosted a baby shower over the weekend that is sure to have left her guests buzzing. I’m proud to say she used our Buzz collection invitation, table decor and printable collection to pull her look together. She then added her own crafty talents to make this shower perfect. (Cake via Cakes by Sara)

customer-terri-ba-bee-shower2

I love the huge sunflowers! And you see the diaper cake and diaper wreath? Terri made them herself and even shares a tutorial.

customer-terri-ba-bee-shower3

And last, but never least, is the dessert table. Terri made cookies and embellished them with our buzz collection designs by printing the image with a special printer on edible sugar paper (excited to say that starting the week of October 11, 2010 we will be selling yummy cutout and sugar paper butter cookies via Sweet Tooth Cottage for this collection and many more in the shoppe; a detailed announcement about this sweet partnership is scheduled for early next week!). Didn’t she do a lovely job?! AND she made the little bee and hive cake balls too.

Hop over to Terri’s blog at Crafty Working Mommy for even more details and as always, I hope you’re inspired! {Thanks so much for sharing Terri! You did a beautiful job!}

If you have little girls, you’ve likely read the book Pinkalicious. But if you haven’t, you’re going to want to after you see this fabulous party from Andrea of Sweet Bambinos. I’m sure you noted the “customer” in the title. I wish I could tell you that we helped her with all the fabulous details, but alas I can’t. She only purchased the pink polka dot cups from us (nice addition don’t you think!), and the rest was all Andrea!

customer-andrea-pinkalicious-birthday-party2

I love the tall cupcake pedestals she made. Yep, you read me right. She made them using a tutorial from Joy’s Hope

And these are only a sample of the pictures and ideas you’ll find when you hop over to Andrea’s blog. Enjoy!
