Kids Party Invitations

A couple of weeks ago I received a reader request for inspiration for kids party invitations, so I put out a request on twitter and asked around, and I thought I’d share a round-up of what I found!

Lori from Paper and Thread Studio created these two invitations for a first and second birthday party, incorporating fabric and stitching as playful details:


These “subtle sock monkey” invitations were created for the 1st birthday of a photographer’s son.  We created flat “buttons” using chipboard and sock monkey fabric and stitched those, together with the birthday boy’s picture, along the top of the invitation.  The script font was chosen to match the Curious George books.  Finally, the envelopes are lined using an image of the knit pattern from an actual sock monkey.


These invitations were created for a girl’s second birthday party.  Elmo is cut out of fabric and applied to the top of the invitation, along with the stitching.

I absolutely adore these kids party invitations photographed by Nicole Hill Gerulat for One Charming Party:




I absolutely love the art party invitations in the third photo – so creative!

Cassandre from Fete Festa Fiesta created these pop-up invitations for her daughter’s 9th birthday party, using paper from Envelopments:


Naushin from Love, Paper & Ink created these invitations for a robots and monkeys-themed first birthday party:


Nyle is the son of one of my best friends.  The invitation was designed according to the theme of his party – Robots and Monkeys – and as a digitally-printed postcard for easy mailing.  I also designed coordinating “Oo-oo! Beep beep!” stickers for the loot bags handed out at the end of the day.

For her daughter’s first birthday party, photographer Kallie Buckmaster went with an owl theme for the invitation design:

And one more for this round-up, lovely letterpress invitations from Cartoules Letterpress for a first birthday pool party!

  1. I love the classy look of these. So often kids’ invitations just fall into the tacky category. These are fresh and trendy while still being very tasteful.

  2. so lovely! i remember that when i was younger i had a birthday party at a midieval castle, all themed and stuff, with nice games, scary stories and dressing up like knights. (: my dad made the most beautiful invitation with a pop-up castle. he’s so amazingly creative.
