It’s really not my birthday… that’s not until November! August is almost over yet it has been full of family and friends' birthdays. In my family alone, three have the same birthday… my hunk of a husband, his twin brother, and my sister-in-law (my brother’s wife)! Also 2 of my besties share the same birthday!
The idea of a having a birthday party sounds awesome… you get to choose the theme and food and of course design the invitations and decorations. But let’s be honest, as an introvert, I hate being the center of attention, so if I could plan my birthday party and not be the center of attention I would do it in a heartbeat! Needless to say, my future children have no choice but to let me throw them a birthday party! Until then, I will have to live vicariously through clients when they need me to design invitations and any party decorations and favors!
Just look how fun these party decorations and food displays are! No offense to my mother, but she has no creativity... I probably stole all the creativity she had in her, but I definitely didn't have parties like this. Then again, I am an introvert so I really never wanted big parties like these images down below when growing up. Luckily these days with "Pinterest" and "Hostess with the Mostess" at our fingertips, birthday party ideas are endless!
The invitation has always been one of my favorite parts of planning a birthday party. It sets the mood for the party. Once you send out the invitation, it makes it more real for the birthday person because it means it's finally happening... the one and only day that is solely about them is finally coming and all of their friends are coming to celebrate them!
Not only does a birthday signify that someone is another year older, but the birthday party invitation shows how they have changed in tastes. If you're a boy, one year it's about batman and legos and then the next year they are into golf. Let's not forget daddy's little princess who can't have too much pink and glitter tutus at her party and then you blink and she has a Kate Spade theme party.
Got a birthday coming up... first birthday? milestone? or even a surprise party coming up... hola at your girl! Let me help you out with any of your birthday invitation and paper needs. Since I don't have children I can live vicariously through you AND the best part... all the center of attention will be on you since it's YOUR birthday!!!
