{Party Bee} The Jake Baptism Party Collection

Tired of not being able to find party decorations that are in the color scheme you need? Or perhaps you can't find decorations that are unique and not so commercial. I definitely know the challenge of creating a "look" that is specific in color and is one-of-a-kind and not straight out of the party store. Therefore I have created custom-made party decorations and my Baptism party printables are now available for purchase.

The Jake Baptism Party Collection comes in a blue, brown and yellow color palette that is perfect for celebrating your baby boy and his special day. Get an entire set of decor to create a pretty and unique party for $20. Just send me the name of the child to be baptized and the party information.

The Jake Baptism Party Collection contains:
Invitation (envelopes not included) 
5 cupcake/cookie tag designs- 6 to a page (these can be used in many different ways)
Labels for your treat table
Large cross in a circle (great for the wall, table centerpiece, or hanging decoration)
Banner with Happy Baptism ______(child's name)

Receive the document electronically and print out as many as you want!

{Party Bee} Jake's Baptism Dessert Table

My son, Jake, was just recently baptized.... and of course being the Mexican Martha Stewart wannabe that I am, I had to create a pretty dessert table to celebrate the occasion.

The theme was filled with crosses and my son's name and was designed with blue and brown being the primary color scheme with yellow accents. I always loving adding a hint of is just so cheerful!
 The party table went over very well and the treats went fast! Professional photographs taken by Kathy Lawson still to come!

{Bungalow Bee} Living Room and Dining Room Inspiration Board

Some may call my decorating style a hodgepodge of objects or maybe think I have multiple design personality disorder, however I like to think of it as "ecletic design"...or at least that is what I keep telling myself. Yes, it is true that I can't seem to choose between traditional, global, modern, and shabby chic decor; but I think I have found a way to incorporate elements of each into my own design style to create a unique and cozy living area that adds charm and warmth to a space...perhaps I will call it the Sugar Bee Bungalow style.

In this inspiration board for my living room and dining room, I have put together objects and colors that I want to include in my design for my new house. I love using contrasting and complimentary colors, therefore a muted green with red accents will be the room's main colors along with black and white elements. You will notice the juxtaposition of modern and traditional objects with a dash of shabby chic and global decor.

I am excited to see how it all comes together! Stay tuned!

{Bungalow Bee} Office Room Inspiration Board

Since my husband and I just recently put an offer on a house, we are so excited and anxious to decorate our new home. I have been anticipating this moment for days now and although they say not to get your hopes up and stay calm but hopeful, that is just not me and I have already started to decorate this place in my mind! Because my head is just full of so many things that I want to do with this place, I figured out a game plan and organized my thoughts and ideas by creating an inspiration board. First room up to bat...our office!

The color palette will consist mainly of orange with accents of aqua/teal. Black, gray and white will also be added in the room with the inclusion of furniture, wall color, and other decorative accents. I want to have one accent wall by wallpapering it with a nice bold pattern for interest, such as this paper I found from Home Depot. The rest of the walls will be a calm and muted gray so that the bright and bold patterned wallpaper won't overwhelm the space.

The curtains will be a solid orange, so they won't compete with the wallpaper. They will hang on a gray colored wall so that the wallpaper side won't be so heavy with pattern and color...again keeping with balancing the room.

The gray Murphy sleeper sofa from Cost Plus World Market will be positioned against the wallpaper. Above the sofa will hang a nice work of art, created by me of course, that will contain accents of aqua/teal. Beside the sofa I want a chair with a slightly more subtle pattern that will coordinate with the room but won't clash with the wallpaper- I especially liked this chair from Cost Plus.

Lastly, I will casually place aqua/teal decorative accent pieces around the room for an extra splash of color.

I absolutely love the combination of these two colors...they were meant to be just like peanut butter and jelly or like peas and carrots...they are complementary colors of course!

Now that my inspiration board is complete and I am ready to decorate, we just have to get an acceptance....and the keys!
