Lauren Covington birthday children fall farm invitation orange pumpkin

sydney's oktoberfest-inspired pumpkin patch birthday invitations

It's fall y'all! I bet I'm the only person who has said that on the internet today. In the spirit of the first day of fall, I wanted to share these invitations from last year. It's a sweltering 93 degrees here in Houston, but hats off to all of you beautiful people wearing scarves and flannel. Sydney was having a party at a farm during pumpkin season, so was I heavily inspired unruly pumpkin patches, Oktoberfest and maybe some craft brews. It should be noted that no three-year olds consumed beer at this party. ...and look! We went to this shin-dig-- Sydney...

Pow! I'm a little late to post these, but not for a lack of love on the project. Having a baby of my own has been keeping me away from the blog... and here I am, almost planning my own 1-year birthday party. Unbelievable. Nash's mom wanted a throwback superhero look for his first birthday party invitation. I kept the colors classic and added some graphic patterns to make it pop! I'm pretty obsessed with the Nash Hats she made for the guests :) For custom birthday party invitations, contact Charm & Fig.

choo choo, syd turns 2! thomas & friends birthday party

Lauren Covington birthday blue children custom girl invitation party red thomas the train

One of our favorite little friends turned two this year. It seems like yesterday I was working on her baby shower invitations. At two years old, little miss Sydney is already a renaissance woman -- a dancer, artist, Houston Rockets fan, Thomas & Friends enthusiast and lover of hearts. We created a first-class ticket invitation with her favorite character and added some graphic details -- fun icons on the front, and pinstripes on the back made phrases celebrating the birthday girl. And just for grins, we used her actual birth day and time of birth as the boarding pass number. She's the coolest. For custom party invitations, ...

Little boy birthday party -- what a nice change of pace! I was thrilled when Parker's mom commissioned me to create his woodland wonderland birthday party invitations. I got lost in researching all the woodland animals, but we finally settled on the cheerful owl and the friendly fox. The best part of this project? I got to go to the party and watch Parker attack a cake so very carefully and methodically. It was pretty darn cute!For custom invitations, contact Charm & Fig.
