SO EXCITED…It’s party planning time! My favorite time of year!

My daughter’s birthday party is 2 weeks away and that means that I can officially start working on some of the cute ideas I have been collecting over the past few months {SO EXCITED}… We already sent out the party invitations and decided to make her second birthday an ice cream themed party.

Here are the super cute invitations I made for her party…I found the “build an ice cream” clipart on Etsy for $3 and started to design the invitations around the ice cream cone. I collected a few ideas for invitations and I combined a little piece of each one into one cute + sweet invitation for the birthday girl turning 2! I uploaded the designs to Vistaprint to have them professionally printed. It was super cheap since Vistaprint had a sale at the time for free invitations. {PERFECT TIMING}

Ice Cream Party Invitations

 

We’re having the party at a local park so the kids can play on the playgrounds with the party pavilion right next to it.  We had her first birthday party at the house last year with close family and friends. This year, I wanted something a little bigger but less stressful where everyone can have fun {kids + adults} enjoying some great friends, family and food.

For the envelope, I carried the ice cream clipart onto the front of the envelope along with a festive “CELEBRATE” stamp.  USPS also had Pixar movie character stamps, too but though this one worked nicer.

And for the back, just a simple custom designed Sweet’n Tots glossy sticker. At Sweet’n Tots, you can design your own “Sweet’n Tot” to look just like your little one.  I created the artwork to look just like Grace and it turned out great. I added a sweet matching polka dots border and her name to complete the invitation design!

This is the just the beginning of the numerous posts to come about my daughter’s birthday party in August and I cannot wait to share more details of her party decor and yummy, creative food and goodies!

Until next time, have a SWEET day! xoxo Bonnie


Working on some super cute ideas for my daughter’s second birthday…here’s a sneak peek of her party shirt. You just need a few items to make this and it took me about 30 minutes! {Even when taking photos for the step by step tutorial} I’m not a great seamstress so this NO sew project was right up my alley!

Learn how to make one for your little one with our upcoming blog post.

PS – Can you tell I am SUPER excited for her birthday party this year. It feels like I’ve been collecting ideas for the past 6 months and I can finally start creating some of these amazing finds!
