Barnyard Birthday Invitation

This birthday invitation is perfect for a child's farm themed birthday party. It was created for a wonderful customer whose two year old daughter loves spending time with her grandfather on his farm. With the matching return address and thank moo notes it makes an adorable party paper ensemble.

This is one of my favorite Whitney English note cards that we sell at The Basket Peddler. Okay, who am I kidding, I love them all, but I couldn't resist buying some of these for myself and adding a pretty monogram!

Dynamic Dots Invitation and Envelope

This is one of my customers' favorite invitations. I love the Dynamic Dot invitation because it is versatile, the colors can be quickly changed and it fits many different party themes - from baby shower to birthday. I have even added a honey pot and bees for a pooh themed baby shower. As with all my custom invitations, I have a matching envelope return address design too.
Invitations with unprinted white or ecru envelopes are only 68 cents a piece plus a $5 set up fee. To add matching return address it is 30 cents a piece and $5 set up fee.

Welcome to the brides, birthdays, and babies blog! I am so excited to finally get this project up and running. I hope that this blog will inspire, encourage and help you create the perfect event, whether it be a wonderful wedding, a fabulous 4oth birthday party or announcing the birth of your beautiful baby. My specialty and love is stationery and invitations, but I love to see how everything comes together at the party. When I create a special invitation for a client, I love to talk to them about all the different aspects of the event, so that I can create the perfect invitation to complement. I hope that you will enjoy, interact and elicit my advice when the mood strikes. I will be featuring some of my custom creations as well as some of my favorite papers and items we sell at the shop.
