Credit where credit is due

There are times when we have to decide to delegate certain aspects of a party to professionals who are really good at their art. As much as I’d like to print every one of my custom invitation designs myself and hand cut every favor tag it’s just isn’t always possible when you consider everything that goes into executing a design and installing it for an event.

This was the case when I decided to include popcorn on the dessert table for my son’s 4th birthday party and I needed boxes to put it in. I started planning the party on 3 weeks notice and about a week before I hit Etsy in search of 20 ready to show boxes.

Bonnie at Cute Sassy Designs was kind enough to make the boxes on short notice and add black labels  identical to the iphone 4 logo I used throughout the party.

When I wrote the blog post I thought I had noted everyone who I ordered from in the whirlwind 3 weeks ( right down to the shirt on Mal’s back) but I failed to list her as a vendor. It was not intentional. She was very responsive. She executed the design with a label identical to the image I provided and everything was completed as discussed . Most importantly she worked very quickly to get me the boxes in plenty of time for the party.

If you need popcorn style favor boxes, be sure to check out her shop.

Thanks again to all of the vendors we’ve worked with– especially the ones who support our last minute requests!
