Blog Neglect

I want to apologize to everyone for the serious blog neglect. We have been VERY busy little elves at Magnolia Creative Co. After starting this holiday season with over 600 unpainted travel coffee mugs (our best selling product) we only have a lonely 100 left! These last few seem to be flying out the door. If you're looking for a list minute gift these are perfect, especially for teachers! Custom designs are always welcome too. We hope you all have been enjoying your holiday season so far and scratching things off that old to do list. Be merry!

Happy holiday season to all!!

Love lots,
Emily and all the
little elves from Magnolia Creative Co.

Adorable $1 Favor Finds

While cruising the aisles at my local Wal-Mart I stumbled upon these adorable individual soaps for only $1! They had Christmas themes as well as fairies, construction, purses and what looks like a VW Beetle. Of course my daughter wanted a blue beetle.

If you are planning any holiday or theme parties soon these would make great favors. Go snatch them up soon because you know they won't last long!

"....Sprinkle of Southern charm"

I love this sweet, southern photoshoot for Swanky Baby Vintage. It took place in an old pecan orchard, how fitting. Sugarsticks Parties was asked to design the tablescape and it is just dreamy! The cupcake wrappers look so vintage and I adore the girl's outfits, just precious. Check it out here posted by P is for Party.

Personalized Pillows

I love these new Jonathan Adler pillows. You can choose from pre-designed ones or design your own - Oh the possibilities! You can also personalize rugs and totes as well. I adore the hugs and lion and think they'd be adorable in my daughter's room.......Santa perhaps? Check out Project Nursery for other great design finds and idea.

They also have a lighting sale going on now. How cute would this giraffe lamp be in an animal themed nursery or kid's room.

Sweet Summer Tea Party

I showed you the sneak peeks of the invitation well here are the pictures. DeAnn Arnold Photography took these wonderful pics of such a wonderful party! All the sweet little girls had a great time at our Sweet Summer Tea Party and their mommies did too. We can't wait to do it again next year!

The girls started off the party by decorating foam tea pot picture frames with the most adorable stickers and letters. Next they decorated their own tea party hats with the help of their mommies.

Next the girls moved into the living room to their table to sample many yummy treats including cupcakes with adorable custom royal icing flowers, flower shaped turkey and cheese sandwiches, iced cookies, cheesecake fruit tarts and fruit and cheese trays. Pink Lemonade and Sweet Southern Iced Tea were served too! Some of the guest had food allergies so all the food except the chicken salad sandwiches were egg and peanut free. That includes the cookies AND cupcakes!

Magnolia Creative Co. designed all the party collateral such as cupcake toppers, tea cup tags, favor tags, table tents, the mantle display and even hand painted serving pieces to match the invitation.

After their tummies were full the girls received their favors, vintage purse paper bags containing candy necklaces and bracelets and a butterfly shaped sucker. They were even kind enough to pose on the front porch in a group shot for their mommies.

This Sweet Summer Tea Party could not have happened
without these wonderful ladies and vendors.

Total Inspiration: TomKat Studios and Kate Landers Events
Royal Icing Flowers on cupcakes: Mochasof on Etsy
Pink and Green Cupcake Wrappers: The Baker's Confection on Etsy

Party Favors: Oriental Trading Company
(Vintage favor bags, candy jewelry, foam tea pot frames and butterfly suckers)

Tea Party Hats: Target and Halo Heaven
Sheer Butterflies and Dragonflies and Pink Carnations: Halo Heaven
Glassware: Hobby Lobby
