There are so many wonderful plaid and tartan patterns in the world, and Buffalo plaid is definitely one of my favorites! I just love the strong graphic impact of the large red and black checks, especially for anything happening during the cold fall and winter months. These Buffalo plaid third birthday party invitations from Lauren Chism Fine Papers are such a fantastic centerpiece for a Buffalo plaid-themed party, especially when paired with rustic kraft envelopes and fun antler details. Can’t you just imagine everyone seated on plaid blankets drinking warm hot chocolate? Too cute!
From Lauren: I love wearing Buffalo plaid and decorating with antlers, so it didn’t surprise me that I enjoyed designing with them too! My bestie, Carrie, came to me with these ideas for her son Parker’s 3rd birthday, and all I could think of is how cute and fun this little theme was. Certainly in terms of the invitations!
Obviously the Buffalo plaid was the centerpiece of the design, but I loved incorporating the antlers and kraft envelopes with it. They were digitally printed in the most vibrant red. I was beyond happy with how everything came together.
In addition to the invitations, she used Buffalo plaid blankets for tablecloths, dressed Parker in a plaid shirt, and used red and black balloons. I thought it was such a cute theme for a fall or winter birthday, without going overboard. She had planned for an outdoor party, but they had to move things indoors because of rain. The Buffalo plaid was incredibly versatile, because it was just as cute set up inside as out!
