em’s third birthday invitations

Today, I’m happy to share with you the invitations we designed + letterpress printed for our daughter’s third birthday party.

After lots of thought, we decided to throw Em a pixie party! Like her first two birthday invites, I wanted to include a picture of the birthday girl and a little something fun for each recipient. So, in keeping with the theme, I mixed up some magical pixie dust and sprinkled it inside a little washi taped clear envelope.

We chose a soft off-white deckled edge Italian paper for her invitation,

and letterpress printed five colors on each invite. If you look closely, you can see a rainbow of yellow, green, blue, purple + pink.

The invite, pixie dust and picture were all bound together with cream + gold twine.

And the pieces all nestled inside a square envelope.

    Well, they’re just absolutely exquisite. What a treat for a guest to receive one of these — and what a lucky girl to have her parents make such lovely invitations for her!
