Inspiration Invitation {Sweet First Birthday}

Posted on Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

My baby turned one…it was inevitable, though I may still be in denial. If you missed how I felt about this…see his birthday post here.

When it came to planning his birthday party, I went back and forth A LOT. I had ideas for more of a big boy party, or more of a 1st birthday only party….and in the end I decided I would pick something traditional, sweet, and something he L.O.V.E.S. Balloons!! I wanted to make sure I didn’t go with the normal “balloon” party items that can be a little….ummm…..cheesy, and I wanted it to be more sweet and soft than the fun “UP” style balloons. While playing more and more with the graphics, I came across a pair of ticking striped pants and realized that would be the perfect pattern to add sweetness and tradition. So, ticking stripes, a silver, white, and soft blue color palette, and big perfectly round balloons combined to create this invitation for his party. The invite has been the inspiration for everything else and I CAN’T wait to see it come together this weekend!!
