: we LOVE naufal :

i seem to take on party orders mostly for 1 year olds. my designs, i'm quite certain are very likely too simple to garner interest beyond the 1 year olds. ;-) on the other hand, i could see it as a great honour to mark the child's 1st birthday with my pieces of planned design + happy accidents (often, the best ideas come to me at the last minute of planning stage and/or after suggesting a couple or so ideas and themes). to all those moms who've placed their trust and patience in me, i thank you all.

my latest project was for a childhood neighbour's youngest. he turned 1 earlier this month.
the theme was "We LOVE Naufal", in the colour palette of yellow and white. below, photos of the items i made - favour bags (for adults + kids), thank you tags and notepads.

"so typically Izmet"

the Zs' Daddy turned 32 recently.

it was a low-key birthday celebration of sorts. dinner with the immediate family at his favourite place. i came up with the idea of having a "typically him" sort of birthday. no frills, just food + family. things + people he's familiar with. he's not the most adventurous of souls, so anything that's been tried and tested (by him) like a million times sits happily at the top of the list of his favourite things.

with this in mind, i decided to make cupcake toppers with his most typical phrases. the colour palette serves three ways - it matches the interior of the restaurant we were to dine in, it's a reflection of his love for coffee + chocolate, and it's my interpretation of autumn colours (we met + started dating back in autumn '99).

below, photos of the "so typically Izmet" cupcake toppers then.
