40TH SURPRISE PARTY

Well, it was a success! With the help of others, I pulled it off. We kept the secret for months and Andy had absolutely no clue that close to 100 people were waiting to celebrate his 40th with him in the Sky Bar, which is upstairs in Saints located in St. Matthews. Andy's a laid back guy, so he actually made it easy for me...he never questioned a thing. I had fun creating the invites. Since he's a Jim Beam fan, I wanted to make the design look similar to the bottle's label and I signed each invite, too. I put together welcome bags for the guests staying overnight, which included snacks and mini Jim Beam bottles with Andy's picture on them. It was awesome to see so many of our friends and family, and his co-workers and tennis team there. Many traveled quite a distance to celebrate with us. From Springfield, Indianapolis, St. Louis... We're so grateful.

HAPPILY BLENDED

Stephanie and I have a lot in common and I love her to pieces. We used to work at Summit Energy together and we've been close friends for...hmmm...6 years now. She just recently tied the knot with Jason, who now works at Rawlings with my husband, Andy (small world). I was excited when she asked me to help create some special touches for their wedding reception. Not only because I viewed it as a compliment, but also because I haven't seen her as much as I'd like to ever since I had resigned from Summit two years ago. Together we made wine bottle labels, food tent cards, signs, favor box stickers and bunting. Stephanie has a great sense of style and I rolled with her vision of chalkboard designs using two of her favorite fonts: Bombshell Pro and Bebas Neue. I loved helping the newlyweds set everything up. The doughnut table was a huge hit...cool, huh? Oh, and as you can tell, Andy and I were digging the Krispy Kreme hats! Congratulations to the beautiful, happily blended family of 5.

ALL IN THE DETAILS

Little things make big things happen and Stephanie proved that when she hosted a baby shower for her best friend. I loved working with Stephanie as we created countless cards, signs, tags, games and stickers...even flags for the straws. She didn't miss a single detail and I absolutely loved seeing pictures of her party d├ęcor set up. Here are a handful of the beautiful photos taken by EIEIO Photography to showcase her amazing attention to detail. Love, love, love!
