Olivia’s Country Carnival-Inspired Birthday Party Invitations

Sarah from The Happy Envelope sent over these adorable invitations that she created for a country carnival-inspired birthday party.  Such a fun theme for a fall birthday celebration!  The double-sided invitations were printed in pretty orange and green inks, then placed in mailing boxes and tied up with a ribbon and lollipop.  So cute!

From Sarah: These invitations were letterpress printed on ultra-thick, luxurious Crane 4-ply paper in a bright orange ink on the front and a mossy green on the back.  The invitations were placed into chartreuse mailing boxes from Paper Source filled with festive, colorful foam balls and then tied with a pumpkin lollipop and cheery ribbon.  An antique pumpkin illustration paired with vintage-style type and a woodgrain pattern all come together for a perfect country carnival mood!


Thanks Sarah!

  2. Wow, these are stunning in their detail and the use of color! The weight of the paper adds to the dimension of the work. Just beautiful!

    Though i can’t help but note these are for Olivia’s FOURTH birthday!


  3. Hi Marion! Thank you so much for your comment! Yes – they’re for a 4th birthday party, but no matter what the cause of celebration, these invitations are gorgeous. As always, I appreciate it when readers leave positive comments – no judgement or questioning of the decisions of a complete stranger. 🙂
