All American Baseball Party by Bella Bella Studios

Last summer,  I had the pleasure of planning, styling and designing my son’s 8th birthday.

Gino's All~American Baseball Party!

Gino’s All~American Baseball Party!

My son is a baseball FANATIC…
I always give my children the opportunity to pick the theme for their upcoming birthdays.  Last year, there was no need to ask my son, I already knew what his choice would be! We went all out with an All-American baseball theme. Although my son’s favorite team is the San Francisco Giants, I did not want to use the colors of Orange and Black. I was set on using All-American colors of red, white, and blue! I wanted the party to have an All-American feel. I designed all of the party paper décor and decorations around these colors.

I served anything and everything you could eat and drink at the ball park. Instead of paper plates, guests filled up their ballpark style food baskets (that were lined with red checkered tissue).
 In order to incorporate my son’s love for the SF Giants, I gave all of the food, drinks and treats “Giants” inspired names. This turned into a fun family project to come up with creative and catchy names for everything. When the guests arrived, they were tickled to read all of the names.

All the games and entertainment at the party were sports inspired. Guests played, baseball bean bag toss, free-throw basketball, whiffle ball, and swam.

Throughout the party, there was a station set up for guests to “Autograph”  a keepsake baseball for my son. He still has it on display in his room!

The guests had fun autographing the ball. As a “thank you” favor, I found baseball cups and filled them with ballpark goodies (licorice, sunflower seeds, peanuts, and baseball bubblegum).

Fairy Collection by Bella Bella Studios

I recently finished another collection! Whew!!! As my children were off to school last week, I began the design process of my latest collection. I wanted to create a woodland fairy collection. Several clients have asked when I was planning on creating a pixie and pirate themed party. Well, I’ve got the pixie down and now I need to be inspired for the pirate! I want to share with you this new collection. I currently offer this sweet collection as party printables in the Bella Bella Studios Etsy shop.

While designing this collection, I wanted it to have a magical and woodland feel to it. I placed the prancing fairy amongst a lush green background of foliage, spring flowers, a little squirrel and of course lots of red and pink mushrooms! I think my favorite part of this collection is the vintage deer that I incorporated into this design. The deer is so sweet, pure and adds a nice woodland feel to the design. I loved how this little deer turned out so much, I designed a collection just for the deer in pink and one in blue ~ that will come in a later blog post…

This collection took a bit of time because I decided to offer it in a variety of options. I offer this design in blushing pink, powder blue, and a combination of the two. I also wanted to offer clients an easy “instant download” version. This version offers an old-fashion “fill-in” invitation along with party toppers, happy birthday banner, mini bunting, drink wraps, straw flags, thank you cards, and favor tags. I included all of the paper party essentials you would need for a party. Clients love the instant download for quick and easy! It’s great for those moments when you are thinking to yourself, “I need it YESTERDAY!” Lol…. I many times have found myself in this predicament because time got away from me and I did not have the time to order online and wait to receive it in the mail. So, this is a great option.

      I incorporated graphic design with my first passion which is painting. I hand painted several of the elements in this design and added my own graphic design touch to it. It is so nice that with modern technology we have the opportunity to be even more creative. Thank you for taking the time to look at my designs and I hope you liked this collection as much as I do!

Vintage Paper Doll Birthday Party

While busy pinning away on Pinterest, I found this adorable vintage paper doll birthday party that I want to share. No details were left out of this sweet, girly, pink, and fun party. Larissa of Sweet On Parties styled this oh so lovely party!  The little birthday girl Audrey loves paper dolls so vintage Betsey McCall Dolls were used for the inspiration behind this party.

Be sure to grab a cup of tea, sit back and enjoy all of the sweet details of this party.

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Larissa

Our little Audrey is quite a doll and she is quite smitten with paper dolls and all things pretty so l knew creating a Vintage Paper Doll Party for her 4th Birthday would be perfect!  I wanted to create a party that was pretty but fun and fell in love with the vintage images of Betsy McCall.  I had Diletta from Todi Design Boutique create some very pretty 1950′s inspired printables in a color palette of powder blue, candy pink and a touch of beige.

DECOR

I created a 1950′s kitchenette for the backdrop of this party to feature her lovely kitchen which she adores playing with.  The party was held under our pergola and my husband and l constructed a wall out of packing sheets for the background and l painted it in Wattyl Raspberry Whip.  We then hung up white picture frames to look like windows and made little curtains to complete the look.  I had some pink and white vinyl wallpaper l found at my grandma’s house and used that on the floor for 1950′s lino.  I used the same pretty patchwork curtain material for the dessert table backdrop and the party table.   I had found some lovely powder blue lace tin ware from target and wanted to feature these on the dessert table along with a 1950′s dolls wardrobe which l painted white and hung little Betsy Dresses on wooden hangers to form a garland.  I hung some white eyelet lace paper lanterns to suspend over the dessert table, and then used the cupcake towers and wrappers from the Martha Stewart’s Doily range.  I wanted the table to be white so l covered it with a white lace doily tablecloth and then some ruffle and lace white fabric which l gathered at the ends with some powder blue ribbons and hung a pennant polka dot bunting across the front of the table.  I also created a welcome sign near the drinks station using an old 1950′s picture frame and hung a Betsy bunting over the little shelf.

DESSERTS

I wanted the desserts to be pink and white and made vanilla bean cookies with flooded patterns topped with pink sixlets, pink and white chocolate cherry cake pops, rosewater cupcakes with marshmallow frosting, mini blueberry cheesecakes topped with marshmallow hearts, lemon slice with fondant blossoms and a giant chocolate and raspberry buttercream cupcake with rose swirls, fondant flowers and fondant pearls.  I also bought some mini meringues in pastel shades and put these in gold footed crystal dessert bowls.

DRINKS

A drinks station was set up under the other faux window with tutti frutti punch, milk, lemon lime and bitters, sparkling wine, water and flavoured drinking straws on offer for the party guests.

KIDS TABLE

I bought some white lace paper bon bon boxes and filled these with mini musks and attached a helium balloon as party favours for the guests.  For the tableware l had some plain plastic ware left over from Christmas which l wanted to use up.  For the plates l used a punch hole and then threaded pink and blue ribbon and tied it with a bow.  The clear cups were rather flimsy so l decided to double them and put a paper doily inside with a Betsy dress image and then secured them by attaching some pink or blue ribbon around the top of the cup.  I bought some roses, field carnations and baby’s breath and filled some tall glass jars with posies attached with some natural eyelet lace and a scallop punch topper.

ACTIVITIES

The children played many vintage games such as musical statues, pass the parcel, panic post, pin the tail on the donkey and the finale was a pinata. I decorated a plain pinata with blue and white paper rosettes and ruffles inspired by Audrey’s party dress and then made some little bags decorated with white paper doilies and a Betsy image or scallop punch topper for the children to collect their goodies in.
