As we proceed with “New in Shop Week” we’ve got some more exciting, exciting news… you can finally dress your kiddo in coordinating party tops thanks to our new iron-ons!

We can’t tell you how often we get requests to send our designs to a seamstress so she can use it for a top that will perfectly match our party decor and it’s so nice to no longer need to out-source this stuff.  We’re calling these our “smash cake iron-ons” because we think they’ll be perfect to jazz up a onesie or plain white t-shirt you already have on hand and don’t mind your little one getting filthy in for that first piece of birthday cake!

That being said, the iron-ons aren’t limited to babies, we can do them for big kids too… check out this ones we just used for an upcoming camping party we’ll be talking to you all about in the coming weeks:

 Just $9 will get you a custom iron on that can go on a t-shirt or onesie of your choice!!

This week only, enter to win a digital “you print” invite good for any party in our shop along with a set of cupcake liners, 4 poms and… you guessed it… one custom iron-on!  Just leave a comment on any blog post or facebook post this week and you’re entered to win!

tissue poms (4)

By now you’ve probably seen them hanging from the ceiling:

in baby nurseries

over tablescapes:

and now you’ll spot them in our shop!

and hopefully at your next POP decorated party!  We’ve got a variety of colors including lime, pink, red, teal and yellow.  Let us put together a set for your next shin dig for just $4 each.

This week only, enter to win a digital “you print” invite good for any party in our shop along with a set of cupcake liners, matching poms, and a custom iron-on which we’ll be talking to you more about tomorrow.  Just leave a comment on any blog or Facebook post this week and you’re in!  The more you comment, the more entries you’ll receive!
