Wonderland Birthday Tea Party

It’s been almost a year since my baby’s first birthday.  But I wanted to share a few photos from her party before she turns two next month.  I am not really a “theme” type person and I don’t really care for all the fluffy kid’s cartoon stuff.  So, I chose to do a whimsical tea party, Wonderland inspired. I designed her invitation and many of the printed details on the food table. A big thanks to my sister and mother for helping me put the final touches together.

Baby Invitation – Travel / Old World theme

Hello – I’m just popping in quickly to interrupt all these Advent designs with a baby-shower post. I recently had the pleasure of designing some old world themed baby shower invitations for my sister-in-law.  The design is also up in my shop as of today for those of you who don’t want sports theme or elephants.

I also designed a few different printables for games that we played at the shower. I’m giving one away as a free download if anyone is planning a shower and wants to use this! It was fun to see how many people guessed correctly! Click the image below and it will open in a new window, you can then click to save to your computer. Happy shower-ing.
