{Sweet Customers} Sienna's Vintage Circus Party!

Did I ever mention how many talented party girls there are in Australia? I'm sure I have, but I'm constantly reminded of it when all these fabulous parties debut! The best thing about our printable designs is that we get orders from all over the world! LeAnne from Mrs. A in the Cove styled this gorgeous Vintage Circus party for her daughter, Sienna using our printable designs! LeAnne is a loyal follower and has a passion for parties! You may remember her from this adorable princess party that I featured a few months ago! Well, she outdid herself again and she's sharing all the gorgeous details with us! One of my favorite elements of table is the adorable hanging bunting and matching mini bunting on the cake, made by one of my favorite vendors, Kristina from Modern Frills! Enjoy!

LeAnne's gorgeous party was just featured on Amy Atlas!
Congratulations LeAnne, you did a beautiful job!

{Sweet Customers} Sweet Bubble Gum Birthday Party!

I'm so excited to share this SWEET Bubble Gum Birthday Party with you today! Kate of Kate Bogot Photography contacted me about designing a collection for her daughter, Isabelle's 8th birthday! She was inspired by Isabelle's favorite pajamas which had gumball machine illustrations! I had been wanting to do a bubble gum collection, so this was perfect!
Isabelle's gorgeous, bright hairpiece was made by Gracy Lu Originals! Too cute! The adorable rhinestone tank was made by my new favorite rhinestone tank designer, Cristy of PaperLili! After Lisa from The Cookie Jar saw my Gumball invitation design on Facebook, she sent me the link to her adorable gumball machine cookies! They were perfect for Isabelle's party! Enjoy all of the bright, yummy details of this beautiful party!

NEW Printable Bubble Gum Collection is available in the SHOP!

Do you happen to remember this sweet little confection that I used to stage one of my very first cupcake toppers EVER? Read what I wrote about this "little pink sparkling piece of happiness" over a year ago HERE. This delight was from The Coffee Shop in Gilbert, Arizona very close to where I live! Last week, we did a photo shoot there with Vicki Lynn Photography to get new headshots of the TomKat team for the new blog (coming soon)! I was excited to stop in there again, because now the shop is FAMOUS! The ladies of The Coffee Shop just won the Food Network show, Cupcake Wars! So exciting for them!

{Real Parties} "Tea with Trista" Alice in Wonderland Tea Party & Fashion Show!

We recently had the amazing opportunity to work on a fabulous event hosted by My Vintage Baby, featuring Trista Sutter (of Bachelorette fame)! We were contacted by Melissa Darst, talented photographer for help styling the event and creating the paper goods. We worked closely with Melissa, along with the owner, Jessica of My Vintage Baby on ideas and designs. I designed the cupcake toppers, table names, menus, signage, favor tags and labels. They were the perfect "icing on the cake" for this gorgeously styled event! The event was hosted to debut MVB's fall collection, which Trista had a hand in designing! Check out all of the fabulous details of this spectacular event!

A huge thank you to my assistants, Andrea & Toni along with my friend, Lisa and our unofficial intern, Serena for coming by to help assemble all of the paper goodies for the event! I couldn't have done it without you!
Check out all of Melissa's gorgeous photos from the event HERE!
