The Baby Gift Basket

So we think this is worth the wait. We do custom gift baskets for ALL occasions, but we think the baby baskets take the cake!!!!!

What better way to say congrats than with a custom adorable baby gift basket?! We can also ship these anywhere! (excluding alcohol of course)

They are the perfect cross between something ridiculously cute and yet still PRACTICAL that mom will actually use!!!!

We thought this was HILARIOUS. Supposedly the mom has been very upset she has not been able to be "iced", so this was her BF's hysterical request.

Adorable!!! Oh, and you can pick and choose items too so you can make them to whatever your budget is! Doesn't get better than that!

The baby basket is for tomorrow..we are getting good at this posting thing, huh?!

The College Prepster

Okay, so we are SO new to the blog world, but we got the sweetest email from College Prepster last week wanting to do a giveaway for OUR products!!!!!! We could not believe it! We of course (DUH) said well, lets think...what is the newest, hottest thing we could share with fellow bloggers?!


So head on over to College Prepster to win a swanky catch all or custom lucite tray!

Thanks SO much for being such a kind fellow (and MUCH more experienced) blogger!

We're Bringing Thank You's Back...

We are a BIG believer in the handwritten note. It tells someone you stepped away from your computer in this technology driven day in age, and took the time and effort to put pen to paper.

It is such a rare thing these days and we think we should ALL make an effort to bring it back! (We bet JT writes thank yous..okay, maybe not..but STILL)

There is just NO better way to say thank you....

Enjoy the eyecandy of our completely custom notecards below..

It's Fiesta Time!

So it is 90 degrees out and Friday afternoon....what does that mean for Nico and Lala?! FIESTA TIME! We have just made margaritas which reminded us of such a cute party we did that was our pre-blog era! Let's be honest though, we really have only been blogging for like 2 weeks, so we have SO MUCH MORE TO COME!

Kick back, pour your own margarita, and ENJOY!

A Southern Soiree

We recently did a party in Charleston and Sarah, one of the hostesses, sent us the cutest pics from this southern soiree!

Congrats to Ali who found love on the West Coast! Not to toot our own horn, but we just love these invites we did! So preppy, cute, and it doesn't get more custom than that!

Custom labels for the bride to be on celebratory bottles for future events! These make such a great gift and we also can do coordinating items for a super swanky custom basket!

Super cute straw tags we did!

Congrats Ali!

The Completely Custom & FAB Welcome Basket

We have been busy little bees over here with an upcoming wedding this weekend! Check out these custom welcome baskets we created for bride and groom Cassie And Ryan! Obviously the bride's colors are taupe and green, so we incorporated that into each item to give that special touch! We just know their guests are going to LOVE these!!

The Welcome Basket

Custom Candy Bar


Custom Water Bottles

PS-We sell waterproof AND non-waterproof

The Welcome Note

We can design welcome notes to match it all! Let your guests know when and where each event is and how to get there! These are SO helpful for wedding guests! For a little extra added swank, give local restaurant and shopping recommendations to make their stay even more enjoyable!

And then, of course in true Nico and Lala fashion, we also did coordinating hostess gifts for the bridesmaids luncheon and Friday Night Garden Party! What a way to brand an event!

The Catch All, front design

The Catch All, back design

The bridesmaid luncheon was hosted by mothers and daughters, so what better way to thank them than custom lucite jewelry boxes! A practical gift for ANY woman, no matter her age!

Okay, back to work! We have a CandyLand birthday party to finish up...don't you worry, pics to come. It will be UNBELIEVABLE! TRUST US!

Happy Hump Day!

O-N-E is FUN!

Birthdays are so much fun and especially when they are O-N-E!!!!! How cute is this beach bash going to be? We started with the invitations and then did coordinating and matching favors and thank yous! ENJOY!

Lakyn's family is headed south to celebrate so we decided to do personalized beach pails for her friends! So chic for one, eh? Each bucket had fun treats inside! Goldfish (which of course is a kid beach staple) with custom tag that reads "Snack or SWIM", a pink and white beach ball with custom tag reading "I had a BALL at Lakyn's 1st Birthday", and matching bubbles!!!

The Beach ball!

Here is the invitation we based everything upon! This party is going to be precious! We cannot wait to see the pics! What a way to ring in Lakyn's First Year in this world!

Happy Birthday Lakyn!!!

A Summer Save The Date!

We wanted to share this fun, bright, and Summery Save The Date we recently did! How cute is this?! Love the cabana stripes...makes me want to be poolside with a drink that has one of those tiny little umbrellas in it!

Limes are also a great decorating tool and a great way to make an inexpensive statement at a reception! And it all began with the Save The Date!

We think this screams Florida fun-in-the-sun wedding!!

Congrats Kate and Dan!

A Little Slice of Swank!

We have finally done it! Welcome, welcome to our brand new baby blog!! It has been a crazy few weeks for Nico and I, but we are so excited about our new addition, A Little Slice of Swank!

Not only do we have a new blog, but also a BRAND NEW OFFICE!!! We just moved...AGAIN...and could not be happier in our new space! Are the windows not just amazing?!

With a little bit of elbow grease and Bob Vila flowing in our veins, we built our desks out of doors! It is such a nice amount of space and we could not find anything large enough. And we are in LOVE with the color and its' name! Tame Teal! HA!

Check out our logo Nico painted on a canvas to match our new decor! SO CUTE!!!

Okay, enough of the office (although we could go on and on), and back to business!

We have had so many people ask if we have a blog, and quite honestly just haven't done it because there just aren't enough hours in the day! But enough is enough and we have decided to bite the bullet and blog away!

We are so excited about having the ability to share the cute, cute stuff we are doing with our incredible customers! This is going to be SO fun!! We may need a few photography lessons (ha!) but we will do our best!

Thanks for all your support and check back often!! And even better become a follower of our blog! The more the merrier!
