We recently got a party invitation for my niece, whose birthday is one week after Juli's. Until now, I've barely spared a thought for Juliana's party, only thinking of it when she mentioned something about it. Oops, I guess I'd better get on that! Juli had told her friends a month or two ago that she was having a fairy party, so I decided to go with that. My concept leans more on the woodland fairy with a sprinkling of Disney than on the pink, girly, sparkly version. Thanks to Pinterest for some great inspiration! I won't go all out with decorations, especially since the party will be held at the lake, not at my house.
I had a flawed concept for the invitations (I was going to make them leaf-shaped with fabric sewn on the back). But I salvaged my printout once I realised that wouldn't work, and went for these little brown pockets instead. I've always loved what I call "paper sculpture", so I cut out bits to make the little mushroom decorations.
I completed these between 9 and 11 pm on Monday. And of course first thing Tuesday morning, I thought of much better wording, and realised that I forgot to put any RSVP info on the invitations. Good thing all the parents are my friends! I don't know what I'm going to do about parties once Juliana hits school age and I don't know her friends' parents...maybe I'll just be thankful that her birthday is in the summer?
