new on the scene

Friends, former co-workers and fellow stationers Kristin and Angie just joined the blogosphere. These two are chock full of great party ideas you won't want to miss! 

For starters, the 60th birthday party Angie threw for her mom is full of take-home ideas. A heartfelt presentation she created of her mom's 'favorite things' (a take off of 'Oprah's favorite things') is a fun and special way to celebrate a momentous birthday. Angie also created classy custom water wrappers and food labels with her mom's childhood portrait.

Kristin's recent party for her 3 year old son is also a favorite. She illustrates exactly what I've been saying for years...just because you throw a birthday party at a separate venue (i.e. Gymboree or the like), doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style or creativity. Kristin put together a dynamo favor bag for the guests and baked beautiful, tasty cupcakes to make the 'Wiggles' venue more palpable for her, and pretty for everyone to enjoy. Much more from these talented ladies right here.
