Buffalo Plaid Third Birthday Party Invitations

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 LaurenI 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!

Montana Nature-Inspired Calligraphy Wedding Invitations

We’ve seen beautiful tropical-inspired wedding invitations and black tie garden party wedding invitations from Anna of Cast Calligraphy – and today she’s here to share some gorgeous Montana nature-inspired calligraphy wedding invitations! Anna kept a neutral color palette of gray and white paired with a soft powder green to accommodate the temperamental June weather in Montana. The design includes classic serif text paired with Anna’s modern calligraphy, a custom map of the Seeley Lake area, and vintage cactus stamps paired with a more recent (but still vintage-inspired) black and white rose stamp!

From AnnaKatie and Sam got married in June in Seeley Lake, Montana – one of the most beautiful places in the state, in my opinion! They wanted the wedding to simply reflect the beauty of the area, and were deferring to nature to make the biggest impression. The weather in Montana in June can be temperamental, so keeping the design neutral was important. Luckily it was a perfectly beautiful day!

The invitations were digitally printed on a thick eggshell paper in a charcoal grey ink and soft powder green. We had a lot of fun finalizing the custom map, which highlighted the venue, lodging sites, trails and recreation areas, and local towns. On the back side were the details outlining the weekend events and directions. It’s quite a distance from the nearest airport, but guests surely soaked in the beautiful views along the way.

Rubber stamps were used to print the return addresses and vintage stamps were mixed with the beautiful black and white rose stamps (which were very popular this year!). A perfectly natural wedding invitation for a perfect Montana ceremony. Congrats Katie and Sam!
