Hair Bows for Little Girls

Hi all!

When 'One Cute Nursery' started, we wanted to bring to you nursery decorating ideas and lots of inspiration. We have done that with a couple of different posts.

We have featured real nurseries and have exchanged decoration ideas. But, remember when I said how one thing leads to the other ? It is amazing how inspiration - and all of your wonderful comments and input- has taken us to unimaginable places. What started as a blog to share nursery decor ideas, turned out to be a place where I would also share my love for all things crafty.

From nurseries, to birthday parties, to graphic design and now onto hair bows. Yes, little girls' hair bows!

Here are some pictures of our first samples.

Rainbow Striped mini hair bows. Made out of grosgrain ribbon mounted on single prong, partially lined alligator clips.

Custom Birth Announcements - Printable Files

I have been wanting to share with you these custom printable birth announcements I am starting to design for my nursery decor Etsy shop. I wish my listings could grow faster but it's insane the amount of orders of birthday parties I have to fulfill each month.

For my first attempt, I created a nautical birth announcement... of course.

Each custom birth announcement print measures 8" x 10"  formatted to be printed on a 8.5" x 11" paper. After the purchase is made, the customer will receive a rough draft of the file for approval and then it will be re-sent in a 300 dpi PDF form.

Here is another example I made for my girlfriend's little girl...

These birth announcement prints make a perfect gift for the new parents. What a wonderful way to treasure baby's very first vital stats. 

If you're interested in purchasing one of these custom birth announcements, please email me to onecutenursery {at} or send me a conversation via Etsy. I will design your printable file with the colors and theme of your choice. As always, the sky is the limit! 

Thanks for looking!

Shabby Chic Baby Shower Decor - Vintage Style

Since I was a little girl, I had a tendency to like cottage chic decor.... especially those little girl bedrooms full of white distressed furniture with pink floral bedding and splashes of aqua here and there. I remember when I first saw a picture of a beautiful 'shabby chic' bedroom set portrayed on a JC Penney Catalog... I was probably 10 and I ripped the page and kept it for years. Yes, I have been scrapping for a long time! 

When I first got pregnant, I knew that if I was having a baby girl, I was going to make her the most beautiful shabby chic nursery ever ;) ...God blessed me with a little sailor and instead, I designed for him a not too shabby nautical retreat.

I have been saving a shabby chic nursery post for later this year...I have an ongoing project that I would love to share with all of you, but it's not finished ;). I will make sure to come back to this post and write an update when the time comes. Well, I do not have a shabby chic nursery for you today, but I do have a beautiful shabby chic baby shower that I designed for Daniela based on the colors pink, aqua and lavender.

Shabby Chic cardstock is not easy to find. To make a sturdy banner, I printed shabby chic scrapbooking paper and mounted it onto solid color coordinating cardstock.

Shabby Chic Baby Shower Banner
This particular banner read: "Lu's Baby Shower" - a long one, yes - 

This time I incorporated pastel color mini clothes pins instead of wooden ones. Both types are itty bitty cute and pretty :) ! 

The patterns include roses, stripes and damask.

I made cupcake toppers out of the tiny roses on pink and tiny roses on aqua papers. I do not carry this design of cupcake toppers anymore - printed on the back - I would only make them if custom ordered. They are a little more time - and ink- consuming therefore, the cost is higher. 

These are the food tents. I sent these blank because the customer hadn't decided on the menu just yet. But I do offer them with the food names printed on it. 

We kept the cupcake wrappers in coordinating solid colors. These are the perfect final touch for the cupcakes. 

Cupcake wrappers ship flat and ready to assemble. 

These are two samples of shabby chic baby shower favor tags. Tiny roses on pink...{very popular in my shop} and featured on an Etsy Treasury.

For more shabby chic baby shower decor or nursery decor, check out my shop. I am constantly adding new products. If you have any questions or any particular request, please ask! I heart custom orders. Send me an email to poshpaperpartiesco at gmail dot com { replace the at for a @ and the dot for an actual dot (.) } nobody likes spammers!

Thank you for looking! :)

Pink Kitty First Birthday Party - Pink and Lavender

In the midst of organizing my craft room {yes, it is finished, I just haven't put the finishing touches, once that's done, I will snap the pictures and write a post} I stumbled upon so many projects I have done in the past months and that I have not been able to share on the blog, neither to post on my online store. Yikes! I really have a lot of work to do!

Sorting through the pictures files on my computer, I found this beautiful pink kitty party I made for baby Olivia back in May. One thing I like about my work, is being able to design around someone else's idea. Usually, the customer would send me a picture or a link of something they saw online, or something they own and ask me to design the party package around it. So far, so good :) I have delivered beautiful party packages inspired on just colors, any possible animal { I am working on baby shower package with baby panda bears!} trees {like my cherry blossom favor tags}, favors, the baby's nursery decor and more.

Olivia's mommy sent me the party invitation and asked me to design a welcome sign, a happy birthday banner, a high chair banner and a mini happy first birthday banner. The theme was a pink kitty with touches of lavender... I used a beautiful white glitter tulle fabric for the hanging part of the welcome sign, tied with pastel pink satin bows. Cute!


I put 'jewels' around the kitty's neck to make a collar... fancy kitty :)

Now, a "Happy Birthday Olivia" banner is quite large {even in the picture is hard to get the whole banner within 600 pixels width } ... I kept the "Olivia" banner separate and added one kitty link on each end. 

Olivia's mommy kept it and hung it on the nursery's door. These banners are well made ;) and they sure will last for years if you handle them properly. Keeping the name part, is a nice idea for baby's first birthday keepsake.

I usually tie the banners' links together with sheer ribbon, however, this banner was so dear to me and so sophisticated, that I decided to tie it with pink and lavender fabric tulle knots. 

I kept the small banners ( happy 1st birthday and high chair) simple. Those, I printed {instead of die-cut as above} and tied them with sheer ribbon. 

Sorry for the large amount of pictures...they might look the same but I actually zoomed in every three links... This is the high chair banner: 

And one more collage picture of all the products.

This party package is available at my Etsy Store for $85.00 plus shipping. It can be customized on any colors of your choice, any animal. If you have an idea that you would like to share with me, I would love to hear from you! 

Thanks for looking, happy weekend!

Baby Shower Favor Tags - Wording Ideas

What should I write on baby shower favors? That is a very common question customers ask me when ordering favor tags for this occasion.

I have made so many baby shower favor tags in the last year that I think I have enough material to write this blog post {and I am sure there's more to come!}. Each "saying" is accompanied by a picture, so you can also see examples of color and patterns combinations and get inspired.

If you're also looking for some Baby Shower Games Ideas, make sure to read this post later!

Note: You're going to see A LOT of  onesies! They are people's favorite! 

OK. Let's get to it:

1} Most popular and no brainer: " Thanks for coming! -  Lu's Baby Shower "

2} If you have picked your baby's name, this wording is appropriate and very cute!: "Welcome Baby Harlyn Annabelle"

I love this pink and lavender favor tag so much I have to post another picture ;)

I love... { I know, I love all of them ! } this shabby chic favor tag with a baby blue background, not too common for a baby girl baby shower, but it works well!

3} You can also omit the word 'baby' and just write a plain: "Welcome Elizabeth Robin"

4} This is another simple wording, it includes the name of the mom to be and the date of the baby shower: "Cara's Baby Shower - February 26th-2012". No onesie here, this tag was for a customer hosting a vintage themed baby shower and wanted a vintage baby carriage. Cute! 

5} Sometimes, baby showers are not only offered for the mom-to-be but also for the dad-to-be. This particular tag was meant to be tied around a drink for a picnic themed baby shower. It reads: " Stephanie and Travon's Baby Shower - Cheers for Baby Aidan". Notice that to give the tag a 'laid back' feeling, customer chose baking twine instead of satin ribbon. 

How about this one to welcome your little prince? This particular tag was made to match the A New Little Prince Baby Shower theme. 

6} Here is another example using the baby's name and the date of the baby shower: "Baby Kendra - April 7th-2012" . I love this tag! The customer asked me if I could customize the background to be cherry blossoms, and I did. I love the palette of green and pink with a hint of brown that comes from the cherry blossoms tree.

7} This is one of the most popular favor tags in my shop, if not THE MOST popular. In fact, they were featured on a Etsy Treasury list. It was designed for a shabby chic themed baby shower where the baby shower hostess was giving tea bags as favors. It reads: "A Baby is Brewing - Kim's Baby Shower". 

8} And one more example, for a baby girl baby shower: " We are tickled pink that you came to celebrate Katharine Grace!"

I hope these favor tags wording ideas inspire you as well as the color combination, themes and patterns used on them. For more baby shower colors and ideas inspiration, click here.
