Twine, Burlap & Mustache Party! {Father's Day 2014}

Happy Fathers Day!

Fathers Day

I'm so excited to share with you all the details and images from a little (non-fancy) and Pops inspired surprise burlap and mustache soiree JD and I hosted for my dad - in honor of Fathers Day. I can't tell you how special the photo above to me is - and how great it was to see my dad so happy and excited that all this was for him. All of my brothers couldn't make it - one is a father himself and the other travels like crazy - but in it's smallness - our little soirée was so much fun.  

So without further ado - lets see the staches'!

Fathers Day Setup

I've seen a lot (I mean a lot) of mustache parties over the last year or so - and I wanted that fun, manly element - but I also wanted to keep it toned down and not over do it. I wanted the red and mustaches to be pops and fun elements; rather than be the dominating factor. Plus, with all the mustache accessories you can find these days it's so easy to over do it. I love texture - so I used burlap and kraft paper and accessories to give the details a unique look. The burlap wrapped box holds straws for the sodas, and pens and notecards that were cut for sweet messages to slip in Pops' Mailbox 'O' Love.

Isn't this mailbox just adorable? We each filled out the cards I made and filled his love box up with sweet messages. Pops really loved the idea and was ear to ear grins when he learned he got to take the paper mache' mailbox home, filled with his Fathers day cards.


I wrapped & tied twine around the old milk jars and secured them with chalkboard wine glass charms that I got from My Blessed Farmhouse Etsy shop; you can find them here.

I made the little envelope and tags below, and had each of us write things that we love and appreciate about him.

Don't you just love those goody bags? I sent everyone home with mini checkerboards, chalkboards, Chubby pens, more chalkboard wine tags, and lots of candy goodness.


I hope you all had a wonderful Fathers Day and thanked the person in your life that plays that special role for you.

xoxo, Cass

Happy Mothers Day!

About a month ago I had this great idea/project for Mothers Day. I'm so excited to finally share it with all of you! Those of you that are close to me know that since my parents' divorce I haven't been especially close with my mom. I was thinking about all the special women in my life that have helped guide me and encourage me in her absence. I wanted a way to celebrate mothers, but also to celebrate those that step in for people like me to give them their healthy dose of "motherly love". I wanted to celebrate with a simple setup while giving special attention to details.


To make the gift tags, I embossed the design onto thick sparkle cardstock, with heavy gold glitter embossing powder.  These adorned the gift sacks that went out with each card order placed this year, as well as all the handmade gift bag orders.

I created the stationary myself, layering it with a beautiful velvet pattern and a thick pink cardstock. I embellished each invite with 3D flowers & ribbons.


I want to thank everyone for all their card & flower orders this year! It was so much fun reading your answers and designing & creating your custom cards. Nothing brings me more joy!!

Much Love

- Cas
