My youngest brother graduated from high school and will be attending the University of Illinois this fall. This is a proud moment for my parents, the last of my siblings has finally graduated and my brother will attend my father’s alma mater.

I kept with the school colors of blue and orange and incorporated them into the treats and custom labels.


Below right you will see Class of 2010 labels that I created, printed out, and then stapled to the top of treat bags. The pretzel rods have been dipped in white almond mark and then rolled in colored sugar crystals.

I created graduate pennants to adorn the top of each cupcake. I also cut out the former Illini mascot and placed on treat boxes that were wrapped with grosgrain ribbon. The rice krispie treats were made by placing food dye in the marshmallow as they were melting.

An intimate co-ed baby shower for the couple who are expecting a baby girl. The theme incorporated brown and pink with ladybugs and butterflies for a fresh spring look. I created custom labels for cutlery and napkins that were inspired by The TomKat Studio, custom labels for candy inspired by Amy Atlas Events, and custom bags filled with chips and then tied with ribbon and short saying about baby girls.
