One of our favorite, and easiest, favors for a baby shower is a Sweet Pea Hand Sanitizer! We packaged these up in a clear bag, tied them with an adorable pink ribbon, and made a custom tag on pink glitter paper. It's a perfect favor and what new mom doesn't need some extra hand sanitizer in this great scent!

When we were asked to help out with our friend Kelsey's Bachelorette party we were thrilled! Kelsey is one of the most fun people we know and we knew we had to make this party awesome. What better way to say awesome than by having a neon party!
Kelsey's wonderful bridesmaids and family planned a fun night out in Boston on a party bus, but before we took off, we wanted to make sure everyone was excited and came prepared with some favors. Neon sunglasses displayed in a glass vase, which we decorated with neon duck tape, got everyone ready for a fun night. Once they put on their shades, they were off to grab a Ring Pop - the perfect Bachelorette favor and good snack for the night ahead.
Speaking of snacks...we made bags of treats for everyone to take on the bus filled with Chex Mix, Cheez-Its, and Pretzels. We also made some neon sugar cookies coated in purple sugar for dessert.
Before heading out we wanted everyone to put on some great neon lipstick and leave a kiss on our Kisses for Kelsey board. We saw this idea a while ago and thought it would be a fun memory that Kelsey could take home with her. While all the ladies were glammed up with their lipstick they could take a picture in front of our photo backdrop with a choice phrase we knew Kelsey would love.
Last July, Jaye planned her sister's Bachelorette Party in the bride's absolute favorite city, New York! To get the weekend started we made these fantastic favor boxes for each guest. The bride's favorite color is pink, so everything had to be pink! We found these boxes online and they were the perfect size to fit all of our treats.
Each girl got a small bottle of Prosecco with a heart paper straw for cocktail hour at the hotel. Inside each box were some of the bride's favorite snacks; a bag of Goldfish, mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and a granola bar. We also included a few necessities like Cynthia Rowley Band-Aids, some preventative Advil, and a pack of festive tissues. We also made everyone a pink chevron hair tie, and a cherry Chap-Stick we covered with a glitter label. One final touch we gave each box was a detailed schedule of the weekend. The bride loves having a schedule so we couldn't help but poke fun at her just a little; it was her Bachelorette after all!
Next up...the wedding!

Over the past few months, Sugar & Bows has been working on anything that has to do with weddings! We have done bridal showers, bachelorette parties (yes, multiple), kids' table, event coordination, and even Jaye's Sister's Wedding (which just so happens to be this weekend AAHHH). So to kick off our posts on the Wedding Season of 2013, here is one of our first ventures in a kids table.
We had so much fun working on this table. It just so happened to be for Julie's cousin's wedding and the Bride gave us free range of what we could do. We knew right away that we had to make this table fun because if we didn't, Julie would have heard about it from the smaller guests. Each kid received their own basket with its own color theme and a coloring book that we downloaded from Lovely Indeed. The baskets included a lollipop candy kabob, a Wooly Willy, colored sunglasses, glow brackets and necklaces, rings for the girls, sticky lizards for the boys, a finger puppet, and a box of crayons.
As soon as they arrived at their table, the baskets were turned upside down and the candy was devoured. I think you can tell by their expressions that they are having a good time. Thanks again for including Sugar & Bows in your wedding.
Congratulations to Jimmy & Annie!

Is it just us or has this summer flown by? Between parties, planning, and weekend trips we have been so busy and can't believe it's already August! That's why we were thrilled to make this Summer Cookie Basket to celebrate the season. This colorful basket was filled with our frosted sugar cookies shaped like butterflies and daisies along with matching plates and napkins.
We know this basket was the perfect way to enjoy a beautiful summer day!

In our opinion, the ice cream sandwich is one of the best desserts ever invented. This is a bold statement, we know. It starts with ice cream, which is a great start to any dessert. Once you choose your favorite ice cream, you get to add two cookies, whatever kind you want. If you're like us, you'll take a cookie with a bonus treat inside like M&M's. After all of that, you can roll it in pieces of more candy or some festive sprinkles. What's not to like?
Hope everyone has a happy and safe 4th of July, and enjoys their favorite desserts!

Octonauts? What are Octonauts? Well they are creatures in one of the Disney Channel's newest children's shows The Octonauts. These undersea creatures travel the ocean looking for lots of adventure on their Octopod. We had to do some research on this party theme, but once we learned more we had a great time planning Owen's 3rd Birthday.
We wanted to transform the party space to make the guests feel that they were under the sea. We decorated the space with lots of blue lanterns, streamers, and bubbles. We also purchased a great assortment of paper goods from Party Pieces. Octonauts started in the UK and just recently came to the US so we knew this site would have great party supplies.
For the birthday boy we also customized a wall with fish nets, his name, some clamshell lights, and had all the tiny guests add foam sea creatures.
We know the Octonauts don't have a lot of sweets under water, but we made a cake fit for Captain Barnacle! Besides the cake we also made adorable and delicious sea shell cookies, with a pearl inside. And for those who don't like cake, we had Coral Rock Candy and Octo-Pops!
The most exciting thing we made for this party had to be the Gup A Piñata! This was the first time we've made a piñata and it was huge hit. The Gup A is what the Octonauts travel in when they are out searching for adventure. Lucky for our guests, ours was filled with candy and treats.
Happy 3rd Birthday Owen!
