What Christmas Card Photos actually look like

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
November is in full swing and the sound of jingle bells is just around the corner. It is time to start thinking of your Christmas card plans. I know if you are anything like me you have a vision in your head of how your Christmas card should look. You spend hours roaming Pinterest and logging miles at the mall searching for just the right color, style and fit to outfit your entire family. Then comes choosing the right photographer and location. Lots of bribes and candy later you hope you have at least one shot you can actually use to send Christmas cheer to your loved ones.....some years it actually takes an act of GOD to actually have everything align just right. No matter how hard I try each year and how much I plan our photos go a little something like this...

and you know what I wouldn't have it any other way. I like the silly, fun craziness that is my family and these sanpshots, while not perfect ( far from it) are us, silly crazy and fun.
Once you have spent so much energy getting just the right photo you need just the right card. Magic by Marcy specializes in creating custom cards that fit your unique style. I would love to design what you are dreaming of. Check out my online store. ..and when it comes to printing you can't go wrong with MPIX  you can't find better prices or quality anywhere.

Their paper and finishing touches truly make your Christmas cards sparkle. We chose the pearl finish, it was a great subtle shimmer that really made our card stand out.
Adding rounded corners gave it a custom what are you waiting for go take some fun (not perfect pictures) and send them on over I would love to get started on your custom creation today!

It's a Pajama Party

My daughter just turned five and hosted her first ever sleepover.  She was so excited about all of the details for her very special 5th Birthday. The party was designed around grey and white chevron fabric I found and fell in love with. Niki with HootyCutie made Kaitlyn the perfect Birthday outfit.
The chevron skirt has a detachable green and white polka dotted sash so I can change out the colors if I wanted to mix and match for different occasions. I designed the shirt to match, it was just a simple tank top from old navy, I used iron on fusing to attach the square of chevron and the polka dotted letter, It was finished off by sewing around the edges to prevent fraying when washed.....looks like a custom monogram or applique for a fraction of the cost.

This birthday girl was looking forward to a fun filled night with her besties and had a wonderful time giggling the night away with her little friends!
Kaitlyn helped with all of the planning she chose what things she wanted to do at her party as well as what favors her guest would receive. She wanted all of her little friends to have pajamas for the party so we picked out some fabric and enlisted the grandmas and their sewing machines. My mom Grandma DD made the pants, and Miss K and I ironed on the initials for the shirts, Grandma J embroidered around each one giving them a finished look for a lot less that traditional monogramming. To make shirts like this use iron on adhesive, cut out your shape and letter then use the iron to adhere them to a shirt. The embroidery around the letters help them to stay in place without fraying. The girls looked so adorable in the matching pajamas.
Each of her little guest received custom PJ's as their favor, the colors were so bright and fun and looked adorable on everyone.

We set her room up for the party. It was the perfect backdrop for the occasion, it is fun to think outside of the box when decorating for a party, make use of items you already have and transform an ordinary room by re-purposing it for the event. The girls had a great night ahead of them. They all had a lot of giggles playing dress up and struting their stuff down the hallway runway, we had princesses, ballet dancers and even a mermaid make an appearance. After dress up the girls each got a chance to be their own chef, everyone was given a small ball of homemade pizza dough (by homemade I mean Publix Bakery....YUM!) they rolled it out into a shape of their choice ( we had circles, hearts, and moons) they added some of their favorite toppings and we popped them in the oven to bake. While the pizza was cooking we brushed off our Carnival skills playing XBOX Kinect Carnival games...if you ever want to laugh, and I mean laugh hard try to talk 5 giggly 4 & 5 year olds through the menu on XBOX Kinect...It's a hoot.

After pizza and games we helped the girls create their very own ice cream sundaes. They added fun toppings, there was lots of pink of course, and chocolate too! And once their sundaes were made they were ready to dive in with their adorable wooden chevron spoons from The Bakers Confections I just can't say enough about this great company. Their adorable items really gave a custom feel to our party, they arrived in adorable packaging and were the talk of the party (amongst the adults of course)

We just love these adorable spoons from The Bakers Confections they sell the most adorable items for parties. We found matching chevron straws and chevron treat bags there as well. They were perfect little popcorn bags. The straws were a hit as well, the girls just loved the bright colors!
The Chevron straws looked adorable on the flavored water bottles, I purchase flavored water from Target for $1, peeled off the label and added some scrapbook paper to add some color, I attached the straws with bakers twine (which you can also get from The Bakers Confections) It looked adorable and was a great way to showcase those amazing chevron straws!

After our sugar rush of cake and ice cream we were ready for some popcorn and a movie! It was exactly the kind of pajama party my little 5 year old was dreaming of! Once all the pillows and blankets were laid out and the girls were watching their movie, it dawned on me, I had just survived her first "sleepover" and I know that there will be many more to come.

 The cake was designed to match the invites I designed. You can find them at  Magic by Marcy A local friend here in town has a passion for creating these amazing cakes. She does such a fabulous job!

Retro Red & Aqua 2nd Birthday

I am totally in love with this theme, I just couldn't wait to show it off. I designed and created this party for my son's second birthday. He had just learned to ride his tricycle and was oh so proud so I wanted to somehow incorporate that into his party......and from there the retro red &=aqua theme was born...

The theme for his birthday was Retro Red & Aqua, he had just learned to ride his tricycle so we thought that this would be the perfect theme to incorporate his new skill.
I designed the invitations, and created the party around the invitations.
You can purchase them at Magic by Marcy

It was a beautiful March day, we threw the party at home in our backyard. All of our friends and family were there to help us celebrate. The little ones loved playing on the playground. With the young ones I prefer to keep parties simple, invite some friends let them play. No rushing, no agenda...just plain ol' fun. After the kids played we ate ice cream and cake and opened presents

An old dining room table was the perfect backdrop for our food table, we served homemade ice cream in a vintage ice cream maker from my childhood. We had sliders, chips and veggies with dip, nothing fancy just a little bit of momma's good food! 

Behind The Scenes Info:
Vintage Signs from Hobby Lobby
TWO Cardboard letters from Hobby Lobby ( attached scrapbook paper using spray glue)
Pennant Banner made using burlap ribbon and fabric scraps
Paper plates were from Target
Napkins were from Homegoods and Walmart
Paper straws from Homegoods

 Little man loves caramel corn, so we found just the right stuff at our local Cracker Barrel. Vintage Cracker Jacks made the perfect parting gift. We used a vintage Radio Flyer Tricycle (borrowed from a friend) to be the backdrop for our favor table. We set up a candy shop...which little man hovered around the entire evening...I think he likes candy!

The favor tags were attached using some bakers twine found at Target in the $1 section.

Custom printable stickers dressed up the plastic cups for the homemade ice cream. Adorable hand stamped wooden spoons added an extra special vintage touch.

 The Cake took my breath away when I picked it up. A local lady here in Tallahassee named Marilyn G. has a passion for creating beautiful cakes. I simply gave her my invite design and she matched it perfectly. It was a beautifully tasty centerpiece for our little man's celebration.
The topper was made using bakers twine and scrapbook paper, cut into small pennants. Wooden skewers held it in place.

My two cutie Pies!

We had a great day celebrating our little man! I hope you enjoy this party as much as we did!

A Bachelorette Bash!

July has been a super crazy month filled with lots of pre wedding fun! To say I'm a little excited about my lil sis getting married is an understatement. I am ecstatic I am a Maid of I mean Matron of Honor for the very first time and I am getting to help with lots of planning details, invitation design, parties and a few surprises along the way. It has been a great experience and a whole lot of fun getting to help with all of the planning.

The invitations were custom designed as per the bride's request. If you know my sister you know that these are just her style! While you won't find these as a regular in my shop if you message me I will create them for you!

For the Bachelorette Weekend we started it off at a hotel on the beach. It was absolutely gorgeous, great pool, amazing views and comfy rooms. When all of the girls arrived we had a little surprise waiting in the room. Some yummy treats, champagne and party favors!
Each of the bridesmaids received a little blue bag with a pair of adorable flip flops designed by the bride-to-be. and a hat to wear pool side. Tags and bags designed by Magic By Marcy.
 The bride also had some adorable bags awaiting all of the Bachelorette Party guests
The tags said....
You don't have to keep it Clean
But you do have to keep it a secret!
Inside was a mini hand sanitizer and a bottle of " Such a Flirt" lotion from Victoria's Secret. The bags were absolutely adorable and a very welcome treat for her guests.

I found these adorable pink glitter champagne flutes at my local Hobby Lobby and adorned them with some larger than life diamond rings and ribbon ( also found at Hobby Lobby)

Her guests enjoyed some yummy chocolate treats before heading out for  a night on the town!

A bride-to-be wouldn't be complete without some flair for her "last fling before the ring!"

Her niece Kaitlyn helped Grandma Dee Dee make her a fabulous bridal crown. My little girl wanted to ensure that aunt BB would be letting her have the crown when she was all done for her dress up collection. Feather Boas and some sparkly pins for all completed her Bachelorette attire.
