A Gingham Birthday Party {New Collection}

As recently mentioned, I was given the tremendous blessing of creating a custom birthday party design for the Summer 2010 issue of Life: Beautiful Magazine (a spectacular publication I adore; if you are one of those who hasn't seen it yet, I hope you will get a chance to pick up a copy and see the gorgeous gingham party photo shoot--these personal images in this post are from my backyard showing of some of the products used in that shoot and don't do it justice--so please, check it out!) to compliment my story in the publication.



I am featuring here some of the precious goodies, some of which you will have the chance to WIN in our new Tuesday Giveaway Series, mentioned at the end of this post!




Because of the many requests for the products seen in the magazine, I wanted to let you know that yes, we are happy to offer them to you for your next party or shower!




Here are some of my favorite elements of our Gingham Birthday Party Collection, now available for order via e-mail (landers.kate@gmail.com), and soon to be shown in our shoppe!



This gingham party design was a great joy to create, and perfect for any summertime event (birthday party or baby shower).


We created a custom pink gingham fabric table runner for the shoot, of which everything else of the party was designed around.



Custom green gingham, yellow gingham, and solid white children's cloth napkins with rick rack trim were created for the shoot, loaded with charm and practicality!

Custom gingham fabric party hats with a ruffle trim really added to the table setting, and looks precious on the birthday girl and her guests.


A free template and directions on how to create your own designer fabric hat, is EXCLUSIVELY available in the Summer 2010 issue of Life: Beautiful!


I selected a variety of flowers from the garden for a more relaxed summertime arrangement to compliment my mock-party table.


I placed two of these arrangements in my favorite hobnail white milk glass vases, bringing lots of old fashioned charm to the table.


I absolutely adore our the special plate that the birthday girl can enjoy eating her cake on.


I especially love our scallop edged one here, which can be ordered with a name instead of "The Birthday Girl" if you preferred that to use year round to make any mealtime special!


As you know bunting is a signature at just about every one of my events, and this one was no exception. We had custom pink gingham fabric bunting created just for the shoot, and soon after arrived our green and yellow gingham fabric bunting too (to coordinate with the gingham party hats, table runner, and napkins), which looks precious in the tree above. There is also a darling new line of paper gingham bunting available as well, which you will see in the dessert table post!


I just swoon every time I look at the custom gingham imprintable line that we had custom designed for the feature in Life: Beatiful.



Check out our some of my favorites of this line of new Gingham Imprintables created for this event (now available for your next party!), including these precious straw flags (great for cupcakes, too!)



Our custom gingham invitation is available in watermelon pink, multi-color checks (oh, and custom colors too!)


I just adore the matching mailing label for the front of the envelope, personalized with your return address. You can have us print the addresses on the labels for you, as an additional service, so when you receive your invites in the mail you just seal, stamp and send!


I have a soft spot for our NEW gingham recipe cards, a perfect party favor when paired with one of our monogram gingham aprons!



Custom place cards (personalized for you, so you don't have to hand write in the names!) not only allow guests to find their special seat, but also help keep from being arguments at the table over which child gets to sit next to the birthday girl!


We made sure to add gingham cupcake wrappers to our collection, which can be personalized with the birthday child's name or monogram. A lovely match to the table runner, don't you think?


I simply can't get enough of our charming favor cartons, custom printed and personalized for each guest.


Our Tissue Flower Poms hung over the Gingham Sweet Table (which will have its own feature VERY soon!) by gingham ribbons, of course.




Stay tuned for one of the most charming gingham dessert table--loaded with old-fashioned sweets.


And now, a preview of the launch of our new series {Tuesday Giveaway}!


If you love this Gingham Collection, and would like the opportunity to win some of our precious gingham party treats for your next event (your party could be featured on our blog), check back tomorrow for our new series {Tuesday Giveaway}! There may even be a FREE imprintable for everyone to enjoy, so be sure to re-visit!

I love those favour cartons. I haven't seen anything like that in Australia. What a great party idea, you could use it for a one year old right through to a tween and beyond. My 11year old daughter just loved it.
