Hanging onto the last days of summer, we threw an ice cream birthday party for a special one year old.
Obviously a favorite part of any party planning for me are the invitations... I had tons of ideas, but they just weren't doing it for me. Then around 4 pm on a Saturday I thought: why not just do a quick photo shoot with balloons, party hats and waffle cones!? One quick trip (with a 10-month-old) to Target later, I had all my supplies.
The next morning during her nap time, I blew up some balloons to make a "1" and got ready for my shoot. I spent about 4-6 hours preparing for what turned out being just a 5 minute shoot, but it was super fun and (I think) turned out great!
My mom made that
Of course, no birthday is complete without thank you notes. ;)
These birthday invitations were printed digitally on a thick bright white paper stock. I used a turquoise envelope and the classic ice cream sundae postage (for obvious reasons).
