Introducing our Thanksgiving Party Printables! I’m so excited for these, they were a blast to design and they feel all warm and fall-ish.
I’m pretty sure the turkey is my favorite part. You can purchase them at our etsy shop! And because you heard about it on the blog we’re offering a discount of 10% off all Thanksgiving Party Printables by using the coupon code TURKEYDAY. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!
I’m loving the Retro BBQ theme, I think of all our themes it is my favorite. I had such a great time designing it and researching retro patterns. I’m also in love with 50s era food and kitchen stuff (I’ve got a collection of 50s pyrex, kitchen odds and ends, and cook books). I can’t wait to use this party printable theme for my own Retro BBQ.
Every time I create a treasury I think, “no, this one is my favorite!” There are so many really really cool items I found for this party treasury. I think my favorite thing about the Barbecue Party Theme Treasury is I got to use so many vintage items like the Vintage Cow Hamburger Server, Anytime Barbecue Vintage Serving Plate, or the Vintage Daisy Table Cloth.
There were also a lot of fun and unique hand made items like the I Heart Meat Cutting Board and the Vintage Silverware Meat Markers. My absolute favorite thing from this treasury is the Cuts of Meat Dress, how awesome would it be to wear that as the hostess of a Barbecue Party!
Pair all these items with our Retro BBQ Party Printables and you have a pretty unique Barbecue or Cookout Party on your hands!
Nothing makes a girl blush more than seeing herself in the press. I got to see my best friend’s reaction via video chat which made it all the better! We rejoiced together, there may have been dancing. Anywho, I’m so honored to have my Pool Party Printables covered in a SheKnows article on Pool Parties! Click the image to read the whole article.
I’ve spent most of the day finishing up a new line of Barbecue Party Printables. I still need to set up a promo photo shoot with Stacy from Stacy’s For the Love of Cake, but I was too excited about them not to share right away! They make me want to have a BBQ party like tomorrow!
My favorite are the new printable items, the party flags which are super cute attached to straws and the “This Burger Belongs To:” custom food labels. You can label your burgers, hot dogs, and the done-ness of your steaks, just attach them to toothpicks. They make me smile.
I can’t wait to see how everyone puts these to use.
And of course you can find them all on our etsy at http://www.etsy.com/shop/dilibertodesign
Introducing July 4th Party Printables from Diliberto Photo & Design! Hurrah!! July 4th is just around the corner, its become a much bigger holiday in my household since my husband and I got married. He’s from Philadelphia and they do it BIG in Philly. One day we’ll spend the 4th of July in Philadelphia but for the time being I think we’ll do it BIG with a party at home.
These are delicious vanilla cupcakes from Stacy’s For the Love of Cake. If you wanted to extend your red white and blue theme and add a little summer flare you could add a few raspberries and blueberries to each cupcake before baking. Make sure to coat them with flour before you add them to the batter to help keep them from floating to the bottom.
I used candy sticks for the cup dsfcake toppers (found them at Michael’s Crafts) and the ribbon was from Hobby Lobby. Hobby Lobby has a special place in my heart. They also always have their holiday stuff in months before the holiday rolls around, this also means that a few weeks before the holiday most of their stuff is on sale. It’s wonderful.
I got this bucket on sale at Hobby Lobby as well. Several of these in different sizes would be great to serve snacks or used in a red, white and blue candy bar. A simple blue and white polka dot ribbon dresses the bucket up for the occasion. I used a 1/2 foam ball covered in a fourth of july themed scrapbook paper to stick all the wonderful cake pops in. Some pops are tied with just red, white and blue ribbon others have the printables on them. I did two hole punches (with a standard size hole punch) in each printable and slid them on.
Everything ties in together with some red check fabric and some more themed scrapbook paper used as a placemat. You’d be surprised how far a yard of fabric goes and at $2.40 a yard (with a 40% off coupon) and its much cheeper than a standard table cloth and the patterns are basically endless.
And thats the Fourth of July collection! I’ve also created some Thank You printables. There are invitations to come as well (leave a comment if you’re interested and I’ll put them at the top of my design to do list. Thanks for reading and Happy Fourth of July!!
This last friday there was a baby shower for a good friend of mine. The story about how baby Riann came into the world is just fantastic. It begins as a before baby mini vacation that turned into a five week when can we bring home baby San Francisco adventure. Their story is not mine to tell but I can only share that I am so thankful that they are finally home safe and sound with the ever so perfect baby Riann in tow.
And thus, upon their return we had their baby shower. Which now that I’ve been to a shower where the baby has already arrived, I much prefer it.
Nicole, Stacy and I prepped for this shower weeks ahead of time. We planned. We toiled. We labored. And here are our fruits!
Ok so I’m really proud of the sweets table! It was truly a team effort and it worked out beautifully!
I had the grand honor of making all the printables. SO awesome! I may post a free template…who knows.
Someone gave her a framed photo of the first time she felt baby Riann move. Mad props for A. Taking the picture and B. Framing it so beautifully.
And Stacy hung a clothes line across all her banisters. When we sent out the invites we also sent a little card encouraging guests to bring an unwrapped onsie. SO FUN! Tons of onsies decorated the banisters. It was grand.
And at the end of the shower the most perfect, baby doll sized little girl came to visit us. I love her. Seriously, she’s perfect.
Since…1993, we think, we’ve thrown an upside down christmas tree party. According to About.com upside down christmas trees are now, “one of the hottest fads of the season”. Who knew we were setting trends back in 1993. There are oodles of google found history about upside down christmas trees, some claim it dates back to the middle ages. For us, my mom just thought, “wouldn’t it be cool to hang a christmas tree upside down from the ceiling.” So we did. And then we had a party.
The party always doubles as an art show for my mom and a few other artists. There is always an abundance of food, and wine and beer. And the best tradition is that anyone who attends is encouraged to decorate the tree with a hand made ornament created from things found on their person, in their car, or in the yard. We have saved the ornaments over the years (thus how we can date the party back to 1993, thanks to a credit card sized pocket calendar someone hung on the tree that year). Some of my favorites are a cassette tape, an official actors guild membership card, an original photo of Pierce Brosnan from his first James Bond film, a digital watch that was worn by a friend during his service in the marines in Iraq, and sooo many more (I promise, next year I’ll take pictures of all my favorites). We always top the tree with a squeaky rubber shark.
This year the party also doubled as my mom’s birthday party. It was a big birthday, but I’ll let it remain a mystery.
I had Stacy from For The Love of Cake make her birthday cake, carrot cake, her favorite. And it was DELICIOUS! And way awesomely decorated. Thanks Stacy, you’re the best! (My mom has two turtles who live in her pond.)
Bill will probably hate me for posting this picture but its so rare that A. I am in a photo during an event. And B. That we’re in a photo together so there it is.
My brother did the food this year, sliders with lots of toppings, stuffed mushrooms, fruit, veggies, delicious.
And for the second year, the fire pit. Its so awesome, I believe there is some innate somewhat cave man like biological thing that draws us to circle around fire. So we do, and its awesome…the conversations that happen around the fire are by far one of my favorite things about the upside down Christmas tree party. So until next year…
