Are you ready for some seriously amazing party photos? I've had the pleasure of doing the party printables for Sarah of Lil Hoot for a few months now. She is a creative genius and so much fun to work with. Plus, she throws a little whimsy and humor into each of her parties which I love. Why not have a little fun, parties aren't supposed to be serious!!!

Did you see this party featured on Amy Atlas here? Swoon! Even if she didn't include the vendor details in her post (boo!), I'll still tell the world that my work was featured on her site!

Here's a little background to the party. Sarah's hubby, Chris, whipped up fondue for her on Valentine's Day after traffic caused them to miss a highly coveted dinner reservation in New York. Nine years later, and a pair of darling twin girls, the rest is history! This year, they wanted to share the lovely tradition with their friends. If I didn't live ACROSS the country, I just might have crashed the party. No, I definitely would have crashed the party!

We started with the fab invitation pictured above and then designed the paper goods for both savory and sweet fondue stations. Also, Sarah wanted to serve drinks that tied in with the cow theme so she thought of mudslides (which apparently led to an after hours dance party) and milkshakes (for the prego crowd), yum!

I lovingly designed, printed, cut and assembled all of the paper goods for this shindig so it makes my heart so happy to see the details executed so perfectly. 

How genius is the "my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard" sign? Genius, Sarah, genius!

 I am straw flag obsessed, aren't they darling?

We had to spell out the rules for the guests who didn't know the fun-do etiquette?

 Each guest was given a tray with their "moo-tensils" and custom name tags so they didn't lose their fondue forks.

Ahhh, chevron stripes, I love you!

These cow creamers are from Target, have I told you that I LOVE target!!!

The dessert fondue selection, yum!!!

Gorgeous sugar cookies by Stacey of Sugar on Top!
Doesn't everything look cuter with a matching label?

Do you love the individual fondue pots used at Sarah's wedding?

Sarah is so lucky to have a team of creative and talented women working with her in Marblehead, MA. If you live near there, hire Sarah for your own fab party. I can guarantee you won't be sorry you did! Thank you Sarah for letting me be a tiny part of helping your vision come to life!

Tiny part? How about a HUGE part?! I'd be lost without you, Paige! This party was just as much yours as it was mine. You just didn't get to experience the massive mudslide hangover ;)
Xoxo from the east coast!!!

This is sooo fun! I literally am laughing and loving all at the same time. What a fun and "let not take ourselves serious" approach. This was great!
