You’re invited to Zoey’s first birthday

Please join me next week, when I will be featuring Zoey’s first birthday party! I had the honor of photographing her party, and I can’t wait to share it with you. Here is what Zoey’s momma,  Andy Richards has to say about these amazing invitations:

I designed in illustrator, printed them myself and then cut all of the teeny-tiny, teensy-weensy flags out and hung them on their own twine banners :). Then, along with my sister-in-law, Josey, we stitched each invitation onto a piece of burlap. There is something so fun about mixing textures. I think it gives an invitation so much character! Since the party was going to be in our backyard, I really wanted to convey a fun, laid-back mood for the celebration and burlap gave the invitations the cozy kinda feeling that i hoped for. :)

We lined each envelope with bright, colorful patterns and colors. All of the fabric and paper I used were in my collection already, so besides a couple spools of thread, I didn’t have to buy anything! The garden of love forever stamps debuted just in time to send the invitations out and they added the perfect touch.


Aren’t they awesome!? I adore them!

If you’d like to hire Andy to design you an invitation, please check out her etsy shop! She’s also selling this design as a printable. :)
