Calling All Superheros – Birthday Invitation

Link Posted on

tommy's invite

 

It’s that time of the year again..Party season! I have 3 kids who start planning their birthday parties the day after their birthday. You can only imagine how crazy this time of the year can get. They are little mini me’s when it comes to party planning. Did I forget to tell you that their birthdays are in April, May, and July. With that said, my son has thought that he was a superhero for the longest time. At first he was obsessed with Spiderman, then Iron Man, Hulk, and now Batman. Of course I am throwing the most awesome Superhero party ever! I’ll be updating you guys with the prep for this party. Today, I’m starting with the invitation.

I usually make all of my own invites. However, too much is going on. So, I headed on over to Etsy.com to find the perfect invite. I searched and searched. I personally thought that many of the invites were to generic looking. I like for my invitations to stand out. After a lot of searching, I found the perfect invite at CapturedbyJessPrints and the price was just right! lol.

Now the picture in her invite is absolutely perfect. I had a vision in my head of what I wanted my son’s picture to look like. Unfortunately, I’m working with an energetic 2 year old who seriously thinks he’s a superhero. He wouldn’t stay still to save his life!

Anyway, I am very happy with the way the invitations turned out despite my wiggly, little Batman/Spiderman. More Superhero party ideas to come!

Get your CRAFT on! – DIY Craft Party

get your craft on

Are you ready for this??? I am hosting a craft party next month!

We’ll be creating 3 crafts:

  • sharpie mugs – I am so excited to try decorating these. Hopefully they turn out as cute as ones that I’ve seen online.
  • body scrub/body butter – these have been pretty popular on my Instagram and Facebook. I’m just trying to decide which scent to make. Maybe I should let my guests decide?
  • Yarn wreaths for spring- Spring is right around the corner (next week can you believe that?). The forecast is calling for snow on Monday. I think this wreath will happily be welcomed.

If you are in the Richmond, VA area and you’re interested in coming to the party, email me at thecraftcomplex@gmail.com.

I threw this Milk Mustache baby shower for my best fried back in August. There were two showers that I couldn’t decide between: got milk and mustache. I decided to combine them together. The color scheme was black, white, and of course blue!

Up Inspired Birthday Party

Last year for my son’s 2nd birthday, I chose to do an “UP” birthday party because I wanted color. Plus, all 2 year olds love balloons and UP is super awesome movie.

I made the invitations by printing off images of the movie onto the envelope and the invitation.

A chalkboard sign welcomed the party guests.

I tied balloons to golf tees and placed them all over the yard. Also, I had a cardboard house for the kids to play in and to color.

I think the rest of the pictures speak for themselves!
