Sneak Peek: Abby’s Sweet Shoppe

Here is a sneak peek of my daughter’s 6th birthday party currently in the works. So I tried last year to have a candy themed party (for the 2nd time, she had one when she was 2 and LOVED it!), but she was way into Tinkerbell last year so went that route (much to my dismay, but it is her birthday not mine!). I know there are a ton of darling sweet treats/candy themed parties out there and after seeing all of them Abby decided she DID want one. So I got my creative juices flowing (okay they are always flowing often too much, hence a craft room full of half finished products, so many ideas, so little time!) to come up with something different. I don’t like doing what everyone else is doing, so I can headed a direction I don’t usually go for kids parties. If you can’t tell by my designs, I usually go for big, fun, bright & busy. This time, I decided to go for a more vintage feel & look; Abby’s Sweet Shoppe was born. I am going for a pink, red (her 2 favorite colors) and aqua/turqoise-ish blue color. I know it is not what most would expect from my designs, but I love it, I think it is going to be darling! Your thoughts? Any creative ideas out there? Please share.

More to come, when I return from vacation.



Resources: I have no idea where most of these photos came from, I have been gathering them for about 10 months, long before I had a blog (okay I am a little crazy and start planning a wee bit early!).

My name is Carli, owner, designer & creative mind behind DimplePrints. I am married to my high school sweetheart & we have 3 wonderful kids. In the beginning I simply started by wanting to share a piece of our lives with loved ones by sending cards & invitations for special occasions. With the support of family, friends & great customers, it has grown into Dimpleprints.
