Beer + Bourbon Birthday Party

Creative LifestyleGina PaulsonComment

This is a bit of a throwback post but I was just designing an event coaster and it reminded me of this Bourbon and Beer Birthday Party I threw for my husbands 25th birthday! I realized none of this was on my current blog so why not toss it on here so I can forever remember it! 

Anyways, I threw a Beer and Bourbon Birthday Party for my now-husband when he turned 25! I honestly wish I had more photos from the details of the party but this will have to do. I created these custom beer labels to match the invitations I designed. I illustrated my darling husband in a black, white and gold vector and created some fun beer labels complete with handlettering and a quote "What a Beer Can Not Cure, There is No Cure". I think what really make it is the neck label which I had printed online to match my beer labels. 

It's FRIDAY so what better day to share some alcohol related party inspiration!? ALE YEAH! I'll be sure to post the current coasters I'm creating as soon as that project wraps up but in the mean time, grab a cold one and enjoy this post! Have a great weekend! 

DIY Handlettered Chalkboard Easter Eggs

Hey Guys! I wanted to share a little EASY and QUICK Easter DIY! I'm teaming up with VersaChalk on this for some Chalkboard Easter Eggs! I really think these would make awesome place cards for any of you hosting Easter brunch or dinner. You could also use them as easter basket labels, dish labels, or just cute little decor! They took me about twenty minutes- BOOM, EASY! Here's what you'll need: 

First I painted the eggs with chalkboard paint. You could spray paint them too if you have that, but this is what I had on hand. I started with one half, let it dry then painted the other half. Once dried, I used my chalkboard markers to write a little message on them! Easy, easy, easy! My followers can get 10% off of Versapen Chalk Markers on their website and use code "ELEVEN" 

Have a great Easter, friends! Share any chalkboard eggs with me on Instagram!!
