Okay, this might be the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen: a first birthday COSTUME partyÂ on Halloween! Such a fun way to celebrate a first birthday this time of year! DesignerÂ Lauren Chism designed the fun invitations to appeal to both kids and adults â€“ mission accomplished!
FromÂ Lauren:Â I love designing for my friends. From their weddings to baby showers, to birth announcements and birthday parties, it’s such an honor to get to design for such special celebrations. So when my friend Kristen, whoseÂ colorful baby shower invitationsÂ I designed last year, asked me to design her daughter Drew’s first birthday invitations, I was so excited. However, when she said it was a birthday COSTUME party on Halloween, I was downright giddy.
I haven’t done many Halloween designs, so I started to brainstorm ideas with Kristen’s requests in mind: a design for kids AND adults, not scary, and FUN. I started with classic Halloween motifs and costumes and just started playing with things. I didn’t start with a concept in mind and I love when it comes together in such an organic way. At the end I snuck in a pirate hat (becauseÂ Kristen wore one to my Derby party) as the finishing touch. I love how they turned out and most importantly, Kristen did too!
