Little Mister Party - Tavian's 1 Month Celebration

When my business partner and best friend Justina told me that her little sister, Le My  was having a baby, I was so excited for her. I have known her since she was just a kid and now she was having her own baby!

So on May 12th, we celebrated Little Mister Tavian's one month birthday. In the asian culture, instead of having a big baby shower, they have a one month celebration to celebrate after their arrival. I've been wanting to throw a party with mustaches and bowties so I suggested we have a little man party. It was so much fun trying to come up with manly items to do for our food table and also cutting out all the mustaches and bowties. And of course let's not forget the argyle pattern we had everywhere.

Here is the invitations we designed. You can also change the wording and it would make the perfect baby shower or birthday invitation. You can purchase these at

And here is the table we designed.

We had root beer, mini man-wiches, bow tie pasta salad, tiny tater tots, bubble gum cigars, candy cigarettes, candy mustaches, cupcakes, oreos, chocolate chip cookies, and even mini slim jims.

We had white bags for guests to put their treats in and we added buttons to them so they looked like white shirts, then guests got to pick out a bowtie to add to the top. 

 And here is the guest of honor, little Mr. Tavian himself :)

 And here is the new happy family.

Navin and Andrew testing out the Root beer with their mustache straws. 

And Nayla & Briohny are making sure the mustache dum dums tasted ok :) 

And here's the little man in my life, Aidan, taking a picture with his new friend Andrew.

2012 Wedding Invitation Contest is ON!

We started actively promoting our 2012 Wedding Invitation Contest back in April. The contest story submission deadline was on June 30th. THANK YOU to everyone that submitted their stories to us!! We received an extraordinary amount of story submissions and were so excited that you shared a little bit of you to us and enjoyed every story that was submitted. It was really tough in deciding which stories would go on to the voting round. We ended up picking 7 stories instead of just 5 since we thought these stories really stood out from the rest. 

These stories are posted on our facebook fan page. In order for your vote to count, you must click on the specific story's notepage and "Like" the story. (Clicking "Like" on your own shared link, will not count because we can't see what's on your facebook timeline or postings. It must be a "Like" on the note page or specific link below.) Voting starts immediately today, July 2, 2012 and will end on July 19, 2012 at 5:00pm, Pacific Standard Time. The three winners will be announced on Friday, July 20, 2012. 

We hope you will enjoy reading them as much as we did. 

Here are the 7 stories in no particular order:

A Christmas to Remember:

TARGET My Heart:

The Valentine's Day Set Up:

Story of Patience:

The Long Distance:

Overcoming Obstacles:

The Magical Surprise:

We wish everyone GOOD LUCK and have FUN promoting your stories!!
