Laelia’s Turns 3; Invites

Laelia’s Turns 3; Invites




It’s been so long since Laelia’s third birthday, it’s difficult to remember details and my thought processes! I designed this festive invite (then stuffed the envelope with this confetti that my bff and I hand punched), and then I mailed it off (and essentially glitter-bombed) my friends and family. (I promise I love you all, I just really love confetti). I did a combination of Bodoni and Futura, which must be one of my favorite combinations because I use it often, including here on my blog. Looking at Laelia’s 2nd birthday invitation I can really see how I have a thing for geometric shapes! And her 5th birthday theme (which will be a joint birthday with her baby brother, who will be turning 1), will certainly continue the trend! This color scheme is also pretty close to Laelia’s bedroom, which I was finding inspiration for around the same time I was designing this party (although I didn’t finish until a few months before her fourth birthday). I think might be sharing her updated bedroom after I post her 3rd birthday photos because I want to fully appreciate how much the color schemes complement each other!
