Dreamy Gender-Neutral Baby Shower

When Elizabeth was tasked with honoring her bestie with a baby shower, she knew Tie That Binds was the place to start. Inspired by the surprise that would be the baby’s gender, Elizabeth wanted a shower invitation that would set the tone for the entire shower. It needed to feel soft and luxurious, not too feminine, and uniquely sweet, just like the mother-to-be. What resulted was a luxurious watercolor lamb stationery suite with golden envelope liners, a monogrammed laurel motif, and the sweetest lamb you ever did see illustrated by the super-talented Hadley Hutton.

Gender Neutral Shower

Elizabeth flexed her planning expertise and coordinated thoughtful food, decor, and even a pianist to play during the shower. Her mother graciously offered to host at their home in South Tampa, Florida. Positioned on a gorgeous lake and surrounded by lush trees and Spanish moss, they arranged for a professional set designer to drape over 60 yards of airy linen on their sunny porch. For the adorable guava jelly favors, Elizabeth enlisted the help of her father who has grown the fruit in his own orchard for nearly 10 years. Paired with the matching signage, favor stickers, hand-made bunting, shower game stationery, and day-of styling help from Tie That Binds, the result was a stunning shower that was exactly what she had imagined for her dear friend.

We’re Back! And RUNNING!

Soooo it’s been a long and nice break from the blogging, but I have missed it! The last month has been filled with taxes, organizing, designing, and basically bracing myself for the upcoming wedding season. Let me tell you, I am refreshed and ready to work!
We’re kicking off 2012 with a new birthday suite! Available from our sister company, Tie That Binds Parties, these invitations are perfect for the dog-loving kid or kid of the dog variety.









The best part is, we can customize the silhouettes to match whatever you have planned. Nifty, right? More details to come, have a great Wednesday!

Tie That Binds Parties on Hostess with the Mostess!

I’m so excited that our Forest Whimsey Shower that was styled in Nisswa, Minnesota is being featured on the Hostess with the Mostess blog today! Traveling to style for events is something I’m slowly stepping into, and this was a fabulous first experience. See what you think! All of the products are available on our website here!










































































PARTY DETAILS:

Tucked into the forests of Nisswa, Minnesota, a group of 6 girls gathered from around the state to throw their friend, Kris, her very first baby shower. We were ecstatic when they asked Tie That Binds to design the paper materials and style the event! We designed everything from scratch to coordinate with the cozy lakeside cabin chosen to host the event.

Being an incredibly talented and generous group of girls, Kris’ friends arranged a hors d’oeuvre style menu and worked together to pull it off. They created dainty bite-size goodies like stuffed mushrooms and cherry tomatoes, bacon-wrapped potatoes, skewered donut holes, gourmet grilled cheese, and carefully frosted cookies – just to name a few!

Because the amazing food and serving dishes were provided by the shower hosts, we really wanted to focus on showcasing the buffet as the highlight of the party. Using strictly wooden bowls and white glass, we mainly relied on the DIY cake plates made from cocktail glasses and thrift store plates. Brilliant!

Other details used to personalize the shower included rich chocolate-brown silverware wrapped in muslin bags and tied with moose tags. We used the same moose design to add extra flair to the drinking cups, and included a full signage package for all the food and drinks. As a special touch for the mommy to be, we created bunting for baby’s room.

The games were convenient and functional. They were individually wrapped with twine and included a wooden pencil to complete the “baby quiz” and “finish mommy’s sentence” games. And don’t forget the forest favors! Wild flower seeds in our sweet mini kraft pouches, and perfectly coordinated with the invitation suite.

While it stormed and rained most of the day, the shower couldn’t have been more cozy, comfortable, cute, and delicious! We loved the opportunity to work with a previous client again, but most of all, meet her wonderful friends and family that were so full of love and enthusiasm. We’re eager to welcome William Allyn into the world and want to say thanks to Kris and her crew that included us in such a joyous event.

Hello There!

It seems it’s been forever since we’ve posted any of our recent work! Between the crazy amount of traveling and insane amount of client work (YAY!) the blog has been so sadly neglected! But once again, we’re going to tease you with a picture of a baby shower we worked on this season. I PROMISE we’ll be back with a real post on Wednesday.



Here is to an INCREDIBLY productive Monday!
