My youngest daughter's second birthday is fast approaching. I recently designed/created the invitations and put them in the mail. I am always trying to come up with a new and different theme for my kids' parties. Not that there is anything wrong with traditional themes (I use plenty myself on other events), but I just love the challenge. Clients aren't always up for something they have never seen before. I also make a point to choose gender neutral themes since we have as many boys as girls at both our girls' parties. Some past gender neutral themes I've done include golf, milk and cookies, around the world, and ice cream social to name a few.
So anywhoo... I decided to go with a hand peace sign since it also is the way we communicate "two". So a sophisticated peace party if you will. Groovy huh!? Since her party will take place over Labor Day weekend, I decided to go with a red, white and blue color scheme.
The invitations were a combination of computer printing and letterpress printing. I had custom plates made for the "two", used a ready-made plate for the sunburst behind, and then printed the actual party information from my computer. I raised the "two" logo up off the paper with scrapbook dots. Oh and look! Even the stamps fit in perfectly with the color scheme. Thanks US Postal Service! (About time you did something nice for me.) Love that they match! Obviously just a happy accident.
The "two" logo will be used throughout the party. More party details to come as we get closer to the event. Stay tuned...
