Tom Sawyer + Huckleberry Finn Birthday Party Invitations

A few weeks ago, event designer Brandi Brown wrote in seeking advice for the invitations for her twin sons’ first birthday party – Brandi’s theme revolved around the story of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, and she wanted something that would mimic the boys’ straw hats.  I suggested that Brandi use burlap as the main element, and did a quick burlap round-up that she could use as inspiration.  Brandi sent over some photos of the invitation and party, and they’re absolutely fantastic!


To create the invitations, Brandi glued a square of burlap to a thin piece of balsa wood.  The invitation details were printed by a local printer onto green card stock and layered on top of the burlap.  A silhouette image of two boys fishing represents both the birthday boys as well as Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer.  So cute, right?!

Brandi worked with fellow event planner Kate Landers, and you can check out additional details from the party on both Brandi’s blog and Kate’s blog.  Congratulations Brandi – I can’t wait to see what you do for the boys’ second birthday!

  1. This is seriously adorable! I’m not usually a bunting person, but theirs looks fantastic. And I love all the burlap (especially around the sippy cups)!

  2. So cute and such a good idea!

    Although, when I was a kid, I had nightmares about Injun Joe hiding in my closet and under my bed. So hopefully Brandi’s boys aren’t as scared of him as I was!

  3. Amazing! This is so much fun for a kids’ party! I hope there was a lot of barefoot running and ruckus making!
