Thing 1 & Thing 2 …

Back in March 2012, Merissa Lynne of Merissa Lynne Events, contacted us to see if we would be interested in working with her on a Baby Shower that she was organizing for a very special lady who was having twins! While we focus on weddings, Little Woman Design is available for all events - from baby showers and mitzvahs to anniversary and birthday parties! ​

Merissa had set the style for the baby shower to be an off-take of 'Thing 1' and 'Thing 2' from the Dr. Seuss story, "The Cat in the Hat." Dr. Seuss, as with most famous stories, is copyrighted, so it was important to use the story as inspiration, taking the color palette and other aspects of the story and making it our own.​

To set the stage for what was to be a fantastic baby shower, Merissa asked for a fun invitation that would play up the fact that the mother-to-be was having twins.​

After the invitations were sent out, and the RSVPs began to come in, we turned to the other day-of collateral that Merissa needed to tie the shower together with the style.​ Merissa had asked for a banner congratulating the mother-to-be. The banner read "Congratulations on Thing 1 & Thing 2". 

​Francesca designed each letter individually. Each single letter was subsequently tied to the next using ribbon.​

With the banner complete, Francesca designed signage for the food and beverage buffet set-up, as well as small favor tags.​
