I met Laura last year when she contacted me via Facebook with a request to design her son’s first birthday party. She wanted an Elephant theme in blue and light green. You can see photos from that party here. I noticed that she lived in my area so I ended up inviting her over one evening and helped her put together the party pieces for Tristan’s party. It was her first time throwing a party using prinables and I had fun showing her how to cut out and assemble the individual pieces. Suffice to say, a friendship developed and even though she moved to Texas, Laura asked me to create a collection for Tristan’s second birthday party.
I love designing a new collection and enjoy the entire collaboration process with my client. Laura was especially easy to work with! She asked for a fun pattern (we ended up going with chevron) in aqua and red. Her son is really into cars at the moment so that was the theme. I think everything turned out gorgeous and Laura did a fantastic job with the party. Can you believe that everything was hand-made? Tristan’s grandma even made the cupcakes and frosting from scratch. The sandwiches were cut out into car shapes and the number two (using cookie cutters), Laura’s sister made the cake pops and the chocolate race cars with teddy grahams was a team project. The idea for the little race cars came from Pinterest.
Thank you so much Laura for letting me share the photos from Tristan’s second birthday! He is such a gorgeous boy and I look forward to working with you next year to design his 3rd birthday party printables.
This aqua and red car collection is now available in my Etsy store. You can purchase the water bottle wrappers, cupcake toppers, banner with name, car cut outs, and thank you favor tags. The favor tags are designed to be cut into squares. I love how Laura rounded the corners and stuck them on red and white Chinese style take out boxes.
