This Week: Cowboys!

Howdy ya’ll. This week, we’re taking a whiff of the Wild Wild West–cowboys, cattle drives, and cactuses galore. This Saturday, my dear friend Lauren is having a cowboy-themed 1st birthday party for her little vaquero, Wyatt, and she asked me to help decorate! So hold on to your ten-gallons, folks, and stay tuned for more shoot-em-up style.

DIY: Star and Moon Baby Banner

¡Hola todos! I threw my friend a surprise baby “sprinkle” (a smaller shower for the second or third child). Her party favors were these sweet little gold stackable star and crescent moon rings from Dogeared, so I used them to inspire the shapes for the banner.

The color palette was aqua, gold, and coral—a fresh, minty mixture that made me think of a cool desert evening under the stars. So, I ended up choosing a metallic gold and coral Grecian print paper for that pop of warmth against a frosty, pale aqua.

A few stars and crescent moons later, I stamped and embossed “baby” onto the shapes, pinned it to some twine, and voilà! I love the way this one turned out.
