Let’s Wrap with our Holiday Favorites from Bash Party

We’re kicking off the holiday season and our to do list wrapping our gifts and making them all sorts of pretty!  I am a big Bash Party Goods fan and love using their amazing collection at parties.  When I saw they had an amazing wrapping paper collection for the holidays I was super excited!  One of the best part of the holidays is gifting to the ones we love, I just like to make them look extra pretty while I’m at it…

Here’s their collection with a Beijos twist.  I added some fun little bits and bobbles to each gift and I can’t wait to pass them out to my loved ones in a few weeks!  There’s still plenty of time to get your wrapping paper, so head on over to make sure yours are just as pretty!

Kicking it off with this Snowing Pink paper… I love that it mixes pinks with reds!  And how cute is this gift tag by Poppy Jack Shop?!  She has so many great pieces in her Etsy shop right now for the holidays.  I’m also obsessed with that fringe ribbon I added, I basically want to wrap everything with it now!

Next up, we aren’t using any green up in here!  It’s all about mixing the pinks and mints my friends!!  Gotta love this Jazzy Trees print…  I added some really pretty velvet ribbon, because I’m all about the velvet these days.  And well, fresh flowers are always a good idea!  Even on gift wrap!

This is the paper I felt was the most traditional… Sort of reminded me of peppermints, must be why it’s called Peppermint Sprinkles!  With the red and pink colors I felt like it needed something else… So I added some mint pom poms and disco balls, because that is what one does!  Obviously!  I also think a bit of eucalyptus tucked in wouldn’t be a bad idea…

Last but not least, the gorgeous Sweater Weather print.  No ugly Christmas sweaters up in here!  I love the mix of colors, you basically can’t go wrong here!  I played with more pom pom trim of course and love it!  I can’t wait to see everyone’s faces when they open their gifts!!

Happy Wrapping!

Easter Cards

Yes, you read that right, Easter Cards!!  You send Christmas Cards, Birthday Cards, even Thank you Cards (if you’re polite) so why not Easter Cards?!  We thought it would be such a fun touch to let our families know we were thinking about them.  And let’s be honest, the colors for Easter are much more fun to play with then Christmas!!  

We asked our friend Kayla Adams, a super talented graphic artist and photographer, to create something for us.  We gave her some color inspriation and wording, and asked her to do what she does best – graphics instead of calligraphy!  Clearly we love calligraphy but sometimes it’s nice to do something a little different.  What she created is so darn cute and playful, we think you’ll love them!

Photos by Kayla Adams (multi talented lady!!)

Let’s start with Abby’s kiddos – Dylan and Jett!  They are getting so big!!  Dylan turns 7 today and Jett is 5 in a few months.  This whole idea was Abby’s, she loves sending cards to her family for Valentine’s Day and thought Easter would be nice this year for a change.  Her card has a simple “Happy Easter” with a yellow border, which goes against those pretty green hills so well!

Next up are my two little bunnies, Cruz and Court!  I asked for a blue border, since duh, two boys!!  And I’m loving the “Some Bunny Loves You” wording with the two of them cheesing with their bunny ears on!  Court will be 3 a few days before Easter and Cruz will be 8 months the following week.  Where does the time go?!  Court’s first Easter was when he was just a few days old and just like that it’s Cruz’s!

Last up is Leah’s brood!  Edie, Isla & Henry… Edie just turned 5, Isla will be 2 soon and Henry will be celebrating his 1st Easter at 8 months old!  So we decided to celebrate that milestone with a card saying “My First Easter”. His big sisters look pretty proud showing him off for it!!  These three have so many fun Easters ahead of them, I can’t wait to watch them grow!

There you have it! Some fun ideas for how you can add some Easter fun to your resume!

Valentines Day Flowers & Love Notes

We are approaching Valentines day pretty quickly here and I don’t know about you but when I think of  love day, all that comes to mind is flowers and love notes.  Have you decided the types of flowers your gonna get for your loved ones?? We picked one of our favorite florists to help us out in this department. Flowers by Mae Mae whipped up this pretty arrangement…

I love the mix in colors of red, pink and blush. Now if my hubby brought this home I would be smitten!! Or if you picked it up for your mom, she would have all the heart eyes.

There is nothing like a beautiful arrangement that tells someone how much you appreciate them, and the love you share for each other.

This blush rose is one of my favorites!!

Megan will be getting super busy here in the upcoming weeks with custom orders for her clients, so if you like what you see, make sure you get your order in!!

Here’s another close up before we move on to the floral compliment…

So as I said before, nothing goes better with flowers than a love note from the heart.  We asked Cindy from Blot and dot to make up some cards with her pretty writing to show off your feelings in the best way.

Love all the soft pink water color vibes here

A pretty overview of all her talents

I also love this simple gold heart with the black amore … it’s pretty unique

These cards with the flowers in the background are a pretty good combo.

Here are more of my favorites..the classic be my valentine and love

Then we had to integrate some unique sayings as well.  When you don’t know what to say, these say it all for you.

Ok this one is my favorite, My family will definitely be getting this one.  They are my sun, my moon and all my stars for sure!!

We hope we have inspired you once again to go out and get some flowers and love notes for your people in your life.  Your people that you love and can’t live without.  The ones that you tell you love them day in and day out so Valentines day is really just another day right??  No way… it’s a beautiful day to celebrate the best feeling in life…LOVE!!

Happy Vday!!

Getting Organized with Shop Bando Agendas

Today is National Agenda day!!! is one of our favorite brands that we always turn to for something fun, and when it comes to staying organized these girls do just that… Make it fun!  We love all of the delightful prints and accessories that they have created, each piece is unique and quirky, just like!!  With our busy schedules being moms, event planners, bloggers, etc we definitely need some organization in our lives and when you throw in some witty little additions that only the girls could think up, you have us sold!!  Today we are going to share our picks of the 17 month agendas and tips on how we use them to stay organized!!

meganwelker-beijos-151 Photos by Megan Welker & Yasmin Sarai always has such pretty and fun prints that it made it incredibly hard to choose which agendas we would want, but we managed!!

I chose this pretty agenda in Marble Jade… I saw that amazing color and knew it must be mine!

meganwelker-beijos-138 All of us Beijos ladies can agree that one of the main ways to stay organized is to make a list… I mean it’s pretty practical right?!  Each week I start off with a big list of things I want to accomplish or get done, sometimes I’ll even do specific things for specific days if I want to get real down and dirty, haha!  But seriously, I love my lists!!  I don’t know about you but I’d be lost with out my grocery lists, I have to make lists for the grocery store or else it’s guaranteed I’ll forget something!!  But holding myself accountable each week helps me to get things done and stay on top of what I need to do.  Plus, checking off my list brings me such an insane sense of satisfaction, haha, it’s the little things people!  And that’s definitely my type A coming out…

meganwelker-beijos-6 meganwelker-beijos-11 meganwelker-beijos-26 meganwelker-beijos-1 Next up is Leah who chose the ombre looking Magic Hour Agenda, which reminds us of a pretty summer sunset…

meganwelker-beijos-128 Leah is on the go a lot!!  She has her two little girls and a little boy on the way so you can imagine she always has her hands full, and it’s about to get even crazier!!  Her favorite part of the agenda is she can take it with her wherever she goes to reference anything she may need.  Another thing we all use is the calendar, which we reference constantly… Having a blog and running an event business we always need to make sure we have our dates and timing under control… We can easily check if we have a conference call with a client or a shoot scheduled before planning what we will do next.  It’s also a great way to remember special dates like anniversaries or birthdays!  Oh, and did we mention how much we love all of’s fun accessories?!  Using their stickers or tape makes it even more enjoyable to add to our calendars, and they have the BEST sayings ever…

meganwelker-beijos-41 meganwelker-beijos-43 meganwelker-beijos-46 meganwelker-beijos-53 Last is Abby who chose the very lovely Lady of Leisure Agenda, how pretty is this print?!

meganwelker-beijos-136 But Abby is definitely not a lady of leisure, she is one busy bee and she needs her agenda!!  Something we must admit is that of course, we all use our iPhones to keep track of our calendars and lists, but our last tip is to still use your agendas… We can’t stress enough how physically writing something down can really help to make it sink into your brain… Plus when you have conference calls or are talking to someone on the phone, it’s much easier to reference something you have written down in front of you.  Believe it or not we will double up the lists on our phone AND in our agendas so we can really keep track of everything we need to do.

yasminsarai_beijosevents_bandoplanner-17 yasminsarai_beijosevents_bandoplanner-15 yasminsarai_beijosevents_bandoplanner-18 yasminsarai_beijosevents_bandoplanner-5 We hope these organization tips helped you!!  Our love affair for continues with these amazing agendas and accessories which we can’t recommend enough!  Let us know any of your organizational tips in the comments, we would love to hear any advice from our readers!!

Let’s start off with my personal favorite… YELLOW!!! I love this bright and sunny color so much, it just makes me happy looking at it!  Meagan used simple tulips for this one, simple but with a punch of color!!  All of the bouquets are wrapped with the prettiest paper with the loveliest words from Laura Hooper Calligraphy… And you can pair with this bright and happy card from Laura Hooper Calligraphy as well for the perfect dose of happiness for that Mama you know!

meganwelker-flowers-16 meganwelker-cards-14 Our next lovely bouquet has some fun color as well, we love the mix of greenery, pinks and purples…  It’s like Spring just jumped out at us!!  For this one Meagan used some of our favorite Spring blooms like lilac, peonies and ranunculus… Pair it with this simple and pink Laura Hooper Card and the beautiful pink glitter bottle chardonnay from One Hope Wine where every 2 bottles sold funds a clinical trial for one woman with breast cancer.

meganwelker-flowers-11 meganwelker-flowers-4 meganwelker-cards-7 Our last dose of pretty is simple yet stunning, we love this white and green bouquet where Meagan used delphiunium with silver dollar eucalyptus leaves.  Not only did the eucalyptus smell delicious (nice rhyme) but it would look gorgeous in anyone’s home with the simple colors.  We added this pretty water color floral card from Laura Hooper to it and the silver glitter sparkling wine One Hope bottle where each bottle sold provides 15 meals to a child in need.

meganwelker-flowers-22 meganwelker-flowers-27 meganwelker-cards-1 Hope we helped you with some of your gift giving… Stay tuned for a beautiful hand made gift next week!!
