Celebrate : Goodbye Party

Posted by

We recently said goodbye to our dear coworker Susanna.  She used to work for the Martha Stewart Crafts line designing some of your favorite products.  The treats were delicious and the decor was impeccable.  I love the scale shift between the giant "We'll Miss You Susanna" sign hanging from the ceiling, and the tiny "We'll Miss You Susanna" garland on the goodbye card.  The palette, red and blue-green, Susanna's favorite, was easy to put together, since Susanna has left such a stamp on the Martha Stewart Crafts line.  We'll Miss you Susanna!!!!

Punched paper as confetti speedily adds a festive dash of color.

  • How did you do the "We'll Miss You" sign? Its darling!

  • Crafter Comment:

    I asked the crafter who made it and she wrote:

    I wrote it out in illustrator, outlined the font and printed the letters out, and then we stapled the paper together outside of the letters and cut them out. Hole punch and baker’s twine to hang. It was Sackers Gothic with a stroke.

  • Thank you - your response is much appreciated!

  • i wish i could have been there. that cake looks amazing!!!!

    If you google the term 'martha stewart alphabet punch' you'll be able to find a few online vendors.
