First Birthday Party Invitation

My boy just turned ONE!  We had a small party at our home, but we still sent out PosePrints invitations (of course).  Doesn’t Miller make a pretty perfect caricature?!  (Click here to see a larger version of this image on our Facebook page.)

Unique First Birthday Party Invitation by PosePrints

His personalized invitations featured some blue bunting, his cute look-alike caricature, and a blue cupcake with a red “1” candle.  I also customized his hair style to include his little blonde curls.  You can start designing your own PosePrints first birthday party invitations by clicking here. Just select the invitation design you like, click the “Personalize This Design” button, create your baby’s caricature, and add your invitation text.

We kept the party simple with a couple of cakes, some balloons, and a few strings of felt bunting:

The only handmade decoration (pictured above on the mantel) was a string of paper bunting featuring his monthly photos.  Every month we’ve taken a picture of Miller with his elephant and a numbered tie:

It’s so fun seeing how much he’s grown in one short year!  The one-to-two month was the biggest jump, don’t you think?

Happy first birthday to our beloved baby!

Bunting Card Design

For awhile, I have been in love with the DIY bunting fad that’s taken over Pinterest and birthday party signs and holiday decor.  I’ve created bunting for PosePrints’ 5th Birthday Party, a couple of trade shows and Valentine’s Day.  And while I’ve only bunted (is that a word?) with paper, I’m set on trying to sew some cute fabric bunting in the near future.  Until then, I just added a “Bunting” design to PosePrints’ card options:

As with everything on the PosePrints website, we can change up any of the colors free of any additional charge.  Want blue and yellow bunting, only striped bunting, all-pink bunting?  You got it.  Just place your order and let us know what changes you would like to see (in the Comments section at check-out) and we’ll send you a proof to approve before we print.

Party Garland

I created some circle bunting for PosePrints’ 5th Birthday Party (coming up next week!).  The theme — mirroring our updated website and Pinks + Blues card design — is, well, pink and blue!  Circle bunting seemed to go with the party invitation, which features pink and blue polka-dots.

To make the bunting, I needed:

  • Pink and blue craft paper (~80 lb. card stock).  I was able to get about 80 punched 1″ circles per 8-1/2 x 11″ piece of paper.
  • A craft punch.  I used the 1″ Martha Stewart punch from Michael’s — only because I couldn’t find a bigger one!
  • Double-sided tape
  • String

Photo of final product — in action at the party! — to come.  I know you can hardly wait.
