Easy Labels in 1..2..3!

Earlier this month I had the pleasure of hosting my first Bachelorette Party! It was so much fun planning it and my favorite task was designing the décor. The theme was “Black & Bling”and one company that really helped me with my minor details was Gartner Studios
Gartner Studios has pre-made labels that you can apply for any party theme. From water bottle labels, to name tags, to table cards and the list goes on, you can design your labels to fit whatever look you desire in as little as 1-2-3. By following 3 easy steps your label is created instantly. 

To obtain the label you desire, head to your nearest Michaels crafts store and grab a Gartner Studios label. Next, go to and enter your SKU# from the Gartner Studios label you purchased. From there, it will lead you to a plethora of different label designs that you can choose from. Download the design you desire, place your labels into your computer printer, press print and your labels are printed off instantly! See below for examples on how I used the Gartner Studios labels for my Bachelorette Party as well as a candy buffet photo shoot.

STUMPED on decorations?

Sorry for my delay in posting! I have been working hard on different candy buffet & party events for my clients! The best part of planning a party is deciding on all the decor. What if you had an idea of a theme and a company had everything needed to bring the decor and minor details to life?

STUMPS has got you covered!

Whether it's for a prom, homecoming, wedding, or special event, STUMPS provides you with a quality selection of different props, fabric, favors, banners, tableware, invitations, and other party decor to make for a well-rounded event. 

I have personally used STUMPS before when planning school dances and they have always delivered superb decor and service!

Best of all, they have an online catalog so you can shop their latest and greatest any time!

Happy decorating!!
