I can not believe my sweet baby’s first birthday party is almost here! It’s on Saturday and it is now Thursday evening which means it is… soon. Oh so soon. Can you believe her first birthday is tomorrow? Wasn’t it just yesterday that I posted about her being born?
Anyhow… I wanted to talk a little bit about the party planning that’s been going on around here. I mean it’s been consuming my life this week. I’m a procrastinator so maybe I should have started a little earlier… lucky for me though I found some great shops to work with who made getting everything party perfect a breeze, and they’ve all come together with a great giveaway going on both here (scroll to bottom) and on my Instagram so if you have any party, adult or child, coming up that you need help with make sure you enter to win!
I don’t want to ruin all the party surprises so I’m going to save a lot of party talk and pictures for next week! But one thing I do want to talk about today is the invitations. Invitations are so important because they tell your guests all the crucial information about the party and set the theme. I wanted to do a Paris cafe type theme for Maddie Grace’s birthday, so I found this cute and simple invitation design on Etsy to use.
My least favorite thing about sending out invitations is writing the return address on all the envelopes. Luckily there are ways around this. My favorite is custom stamps like this gorgeous one from Hello World Paper Co.

This stamp worked great for addressing all of the invitations for the big party. They would also work great for Christmas cards and wedding invites on top of just everyday mailings. Not only are these stamps gorgeous and practical, but this awesome shop gives back 10% of all proceeds to charities around the world!
