If you follow me on Pinterest the theme of Kendall's 1st Birthday Party is no surprise to you! I love all things literature, especially cute classic kid's stories. I put in a lot of time and effort into Kendall's party but surprisingly not too much $. I was told I won't put as much work into the rest of my kid's parties. I really don't doubt that. :)
I love entertaining at our house! And we had a packed house for this lil party! I also like pretending that my last name is Stewart and my momma is Martha. :)
Only I'm not a Stewart descendent because I have no original ideas. Most of the party was Pinterest-inspired!
First up the invitation:
I made the invitation in Power point and had them printed through our local drug store. Long story short-my original order of matte prints was lost in the mail. The store refunded our money but I didn't have time to mail-order new invites. So I ended up with glossy prints from 1-hour. Really not a big deal but next time I'll make sure to order earlier!
Using a 40% off code, this was much cheaper (and I think cuter) than buying pre-made invites and Thank yous.
I also made her thank you cards the same way.
I had a 8X10 printed to go on the gift/favor table.
Speaking of party favors...they were also very inexpensive. I purchased bug catchers and magnifying glasses last spring when they came out at the Dollar tree. I threw in a couple pieces of candy. :) I didn't get a picture but they are like the ones in the picture below.
Another favor, I used as a treat for the end of a game:
Our printer is sick right now, so the colors aren't as vibrant as they should be.
More details to come in the next few days.
