Happy 6th Birthday Tru!


We celebrated my little guys 6th birthday yesterday! This year we did a joint party with a one of his buddies-  his ‘ex-girlfriend’ to be exact! They were both born on the same day and both love star wars so this theme just worked out so perfectly! I recycled an older project I did long ago for my client nannytata for the video invite.

Printed out 2 posters from the oversized printer at Kinkos for kids to doodle and a ‘tattoo-ine’ station that was too cold to do!

I have to remind myself that it’s not a ‘job’ and I just need to be a mom and forget about making things perfect!

Flash back- This was from our class party last year when they first met. I was mortified that he wouldn’t stop picking his nose in front while the kids were singing. He also wouldn’t let me fix his shirt that he wore backwards.


I accepted the fact that I may never get a normal photo of this kid!


I just can not believe he is already 6 years old. I love every minute of being his mom and just want to soak it all in and never forget the moments we share.  He is kind, sweet and a total goof ball. Still so innocent and excited about everything. I hope he never loses that. 


Little Red Riding Hood Party



This past weekend we threw a last birthday and farewell party for Olive and Charlie. See full post on Hellobee. Since it was so close to Halloween, Bee thought it’d be fun to do a Little Red Riding Hood theme and it worked out perfectly because the kids were so into the costume!



Since we had only a few days to put this together, everything was printed at Kinkos/fedex or on an inkjet printer.

I’m so excited to share this new “Jamie” feature from Martha Stewart Weddings! We incorporated all the things we love- rubber-stamps, kraft paper, glassine sleeves and blind embossing. This suite can be a diy project – we supply you with all the materials or we can take care of all the stamping for you. Contact us for more details!


love story on board


You know how much we love chalkboard at P+C… so of course we had to love this idea of the couple’s story written down as “the menu du jour”! Spotted on, photos by Ashley Photographer.

We just got these cute bird save the dates we did for one of our lovely brides. Loving how the die cut turned out on the kraft paper.  Can’t wait to share the rest of the suite soon!


a black & white affair


So excited to see Sarah’s beautiful black and white themed wedding in our first French press, Marriages! It’s our first major coverage and makes me so proud of her. She works so hard for p+c and it makes me so happy to see this new venture flourish.
