I've never met a strawberry that I didn't like.
I like them plain.
I like them in sugar.
I like them in fruit salads.
I like them on my cereal.
I like them covered in chocolate.
I like them on cheesecake and in pies.
Last but not least, when I'm really splurging -
I like them them a top a shortcake -
with ice cream and whipped cream, of course!
And yes, just in case you were wondering
I even had a Strawberry Shortcake doll back in the 80's.
So, it's no surprise that when a client asked me to make Strawberry Shortcake
themed party supplies, I was like - of course I will!
(In case you didn't know - she's back in style - with a new and fresher look!)
Above is the result of our collaboration.
My client requested a wide variety of papers, designs, and colors.
She even went through the painstaking effort of selecting and coordinating
papers from all of our existing paper designs.
And I think they turned out just about as cute as Miss Shortcake herself.
I especially love the strawberry center spinners.
After completing her order I still had strawberries on my mind.
So, I decided to design an entire Strawberry themed paper line.
To view all of our strawberry themed scrapbook papers click here.
Although these papers were specifically designed for a Strawberry Shortcake themed party, I also think they would lake way too festive at any upcoming spring or summer party. Our mini strawberry themed cupcake toppers can be inserted into not only cupcakes, but shortcakes as well. I can also imagine our handheld pinwheels propped into cute red, green, and pink tin pails and buckets.
For more information on pricing, sizes, etc. just visit our Etsy shop.
Gosh, after this entry, I'm sure ready for summer.
I'm also craving Strawberry Shortcakes!
