We have to thank our friend Annie from Bloume Baby for introducing us to her Mommy and Me pal and fellow mom blogger Brenna Watkins Berger of Paper & Ink. When Brenna isn’t busy spending time with her husband and little girl she works out of Manhattan Beach and people go crazy for her creations. Brenna has an eye for detail and her imagination adds a special pop to her invitations and favors. Loving all things creative from cooking to sewing, Brenna started Paper & Ink. We love that she gets the party started from the moment guests receive their invitations and keeps it going well after they leave with memorable favors.
What better way to celebrate an airplane enthusiast than with airplanes? From the packaging to her model glider, nothing quite says “First Class” like this one of a kind party invitation. Brenna even went as far as painting the interior of the box so that it looked like a runway and customized it by adding the birthday boy’s age.
Brenna brewed up a few different options for her daughter Ella’s High Tea birthday party. Ella’s guests drank to her first birthday with stitched lavender tea bags included in the invitation. The tea drinking party people raved about the attention to detail, the fragrant leaves and the lush texture of the invitations.
These wrapped canvases were given to each guest as a favor in a Woodland Themed Party. She garnished the wax brown bags with twigs, pistachio colored yarn, and whimsical mushroom beads. Brenna liked the idea of sending the children home with a gift they could reuse. Parents were especially appreciative for the lack of sugar-filled loot bags!
Thanks for letting us share your incredible work Brenna. You can now catch Brenna on design*sponge once a month featuring DIY paper art. We told you she was good!
