Y3W | 1st Birthday Theme!

I was trying to think of something really great for Brynn's 1st birthday theme and then it hit me like a ton of bricks a few months back. ONEderland. Not very unique? Maybe. But I think turning it into a Brynn in ONEderland {and playing off of good ol' Alice} could make it in too a really fun party theme!

First? I had to read the book. Yep, that's right... I never read it.
{Insert your what??? & your are you kidding me? & your what an idiot! 's here. Are you good? Feel better? Okay.}

The designer in me, immediately went to the invitations. Playing cards. Giant playing cards. How perfect. I just had to make them work.

Here's what I came up with...
Back........................ Front

And a close up of the front of the card...click to enlarge.
{with fake info of course, can't invite everyone! ;}
How cute are they? I am SO excited about them. It took me weeks to get them exactly how I'd pictured them and now I think they're perfect =) The picture in the little mirror in the bottom left corner will be replaced by Brynn's 1st birthday pics {to be taken April 2nd- more on that too... EEEKKK!}

I have so much more to share with you, but I think it deserves a post of its own. So, until then, I hope these invitations can hold you over =)

Grab a button and join the fun!!


Have a great weekend everyone! Wish us luck with the bathroom demo tomorrow ;)

Love your ideas...would love to have you help me brainstorm some possible ideas for my son's 1st birthday in July. I have no idea what to do :(

Love it! This is so unique and fun! My favorite is the old school rabbit drawing instead of the predictible Disney cartoon version.

nikkiinstitches said...

Those are amazing! You are so, so talented!!
(And Brynn's is one lucky kid!)

Jill said...

Are you kidding me! I love this.

Chrissy said...

would you be incredibly offended if I stole this? lol. My daughter is turning 1 in June, I've been wracking my brain for a theme. Did you make the card yoruself? Can you send me a template you used? I would be forever greatful. I can pay you if you want? I'm not amazingly awesome like you, I wouldn't even know where to begin to make a card design... Are you just printing them from home on cardstock? You are so awesome, seriously this is a GREAT idea.

Brian & Spring said...

Man do I need your help, My son will be one in June and I need a cute theme like this. He loves backyardagins but can' t think of anything else.. HELP!!

jenni said...

@ Crissy- I listed the card in my shop so you can buy the design if you want it! I'll personalize it for you and then send you the JPG and you uplaod it to Vista Print or where ever you want to print them =)

For everyone with boys- I did a baseball theme for my son... his invite is listed in my shop as well and I ADORE his birthday card!!
