Past project: Cards and party invites

Our oldest is having a birthday party soon, so I thought I would share with you some of our past efforts this week – hope you enjoy this post!

Here at Casa de Berry we love to do a lot of our own stuff. We could probably save ourselves a lot of time and (sometimes) stress, but the lure of making our own _____ is usually too strong and we cannot resist.

When we had our boys, we wanted something a little different for their birth announcements. Our first son got the full Lord of the Rings treatment:

This was an insert that went inside a gate fold card, sealed with a elven motif.

Our youngest got the martial-arts poster treatment — we were trying to figure out what to do when all of a sudden I got this shot of him and we just went, “Kung Fu Baby!”

For birthday parties, we’ve gone the same “homemade” route, such as this Harry Potter-inspired invitation for our oldest’s first birthday:

He was into Thomas by the time his second birthday rolled around so we issued a Boarding Pass for the party:

Our youngest had a toga party for his first birthday:

Then he got a simple Mickey treatment for his third birthday:

For his fourth birthday, we threw a luau-themed party:

Last year, my oldest was obsessed with Godzilla and we themed his birthday party accordingly:

My husband and I usually go back and forth on invitations, Christmas cards, etc. Sometimes I’ll come up with an idea and he will refine it, sometimes I just do the whole thing or he does, but for this upcoming party, I will proudly give him all the credit. He came up with a seriously awesome design and did a fantastic job with it. I can’t wait to unveil it next week!
