Luau Birthday Invitation


   I was thrilled when Sandy contacted me, all the way from super sunny California, to design her daughter’s first birthday invitations. She loved the Luau theme I created for Carrie’s baby, which was inspired by my trip to Maui – fun, fresh, & modern tropical.

   A bright fresh color scheme and bold graphic fonts gave this invitation a playful beach feel. Sandy asked that I incorporate sea turtles and the blocked text design. I think the end result is absolutely delightful! Doesn't this luau sound like blast? I am totally craving a vacation right now! And don’t we all just adore the side of the invitation devoted to a photo of the little hula girl? What a doll!

Thank you so much Sandy for the opportunity – and Happy Birthday to Samantha!

A Star is Arriving Baby Shower Invitation


I was so happy to receive a message from the gorgeous Sadiyyah all the way from North Carolina. She saw the A Star is Arriving Baby Shower Invitation that I designed for Briana & Michelle on my blog and thought it would work perfectly with her shower theme.

It was a pleasure to get to know her and learn about the fabulous baby shower for her and her fiance. I illustrated caricatures that matched perfectly with Sadiyyah and her fiance’s likeness and captured her fashionista love of pink & purple style. The customized invitation is perfect for a glamorous diva!

I received the sweetest message from her when the design was complete: “Thank you again Desiree for the invitations. I'm pretty sure this won’t be the last time I need you to make something for me! I really appreciate everything you've done and I know they are going to come out looking wonderful!”

Thank you Sadiyyah! You make my job amazing! Have a wonderful day at your baby shower!

Sponge Bob Birthday!


My little diva daughter is a big Sponge Bob fan! In fact, her 6th birthday will be all Sponge Bob themed. I’m happy to share the adorable invitations and CD Labels inspired by the cartoon that I made for her big day.

These are available for sale as custom designed invitations if you are having a SpongeBob party theme too!


Yo Gabba Gabba CD Labels


I must say I have the best clients ever. Starting this blog and showcasing my designs is a wonderful thing.

I just had the pleasuring of meeting Hazel who has an adorable little boy celebrating a big birthday soon. My Yo Gabba Gabba party favor CD labels worked perfectly with her party theme. I was happy to create this scene of Julius dancing with his favorite TV show characters. It is so adorable and is sure to be enjoyed by family & friends many times over!

After sending the design I received this sweet email from Hazel: “This is awesome! Thank you so much, the party will be extra exciting with this part of his favors! You Rock!”
Thank you Hazel and Happy Birthday to Julius!
