It's A Birthday Party...

One of the things I have been busy with lately is helping to plan a birthday party. In my church...we have a woman's organization called the Relief Society. Every March we plan a big birthday party to celebrate the establishment of this organization and all the women involved. This year I was on the committee to plan this event. Usually....people do a flyer to invite people but OF COURSE that wouldn't work if I had a say in it. :) I insisted we made a handmade invitation. :) Is there any other way?! :) I kept them simple because we had to make 100 of them. Here is what we ended up doing...
How much fun is this?! The first one I did was a bit more involved and I like a bit better. But I'm really happy with how they turned out. The flower is on a belly band. So you just slide that off and then this is how the card opens to reveal the information on the inside...
I also made some name tags for the event. I kept these really simple since obviously they will just be thrown out. Oh....side note...we decorated the tables (we were having a big dinner) by seasons. Everyone sat at whatever season their birthday was in. So we had Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. And then when they got there they picked a name tag based on their birthday season...
I did spritzed all of them with some Shimmer Spray. Gotta love that stuff! :) Hard to catch but hopefully you can see it in this photo...
I also made some favors for the table. Again....in keeping with the seasons...I made some for each season. Here is the winter one...
I used mostly retired paper for them all. And the stamp set I used on the treats and the name tags is "Best Wishes and More". I LOVE that set. Here are the treats for all the seasons...
There were different patterns of paper used....but here's a sampling.
Hope you enjoy! Thanks for visiting!
