Kids Party Invitations, Part 2

As I mentioned last week, I’ve been so impressed with all the kids party invitations that you’ve been sending my way!  For this week, I’ve selected three of my favorites so far – each with a different style, from vintage, to totally girly, to modern.   So first up, these fantastic letterpress dance picnic party invitations from Jen at Starshaped Press, incorporating Jen’s signature antique type:


From Jen: We did a Chicago theme as the party was in Buffalo (where our extended family is located), and we wanted to share what we love about the city with all of the folks.  The invitation was actually a broadside that folded down and was mailed in a 7″ record sleeve, to go along with our ‘dance’ theme.  The ‘picnic’ part involved Vienna beef hot dogs and ethnic staples like sauerkraut pierogis and German potato salad, as enjoyable in January as June!

Next up, Dora the Explorer themed invitations from Karly at SweetBeaker!  Although she decided to go with the full Dora theme, Karly created her own look using downloadable figures from the Dora website throughout the invitation and party accessories:


From Karly:  Seeing that Dora is ‘all the rage’ and my daughter is ‘addicted’ – I just went with the theme.  Part one of the party can be seen here and part two can be seen here.


We played ‘pin the tail on boots’ and served a menu of quesadillas, bananas (because that’s what Boots eats), salsa + chips.  Everyone had a blast!


And finally, at least for today’s installment, a beautiful pink and brown letterpress invitation from Tova at Brighten My Day Studio for her daughter’s second birthday party:


From Tova: The invitation was letterpress printed by Press Charming in soft pink and cocoa; paired with a labeled, latte envelope.  You’ll notice the silly, fun uses of “2” throughout the invite and label.  I then decided to build the party around pinks, greens, oranges and brown – sweet, and girly…and a nice complement to the park venue.


I used a bunch of Amy Butler fabrics and created several bunting banners to hang around the picnic site.  For the favors, I screen printed “2” t-shirts in chocolate and pink – useable and keeping in the two-flavored theme.  Each was rolled and presented to each guest with favor tag a la the invitation.

I’ve got more kids party invitations to share over the next few days, so stay tuned!  In addition to party invitations, I’m also looking for child adoption announcements to feature – if you have any that you’d like to share, please e-mail me!
