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.

Meet Luke. For his 100th day celebration, we were honored to design + letterpress print these invitations. Although the ink color is different, we used the same design for his brother’s 100th day celebration invitations back in 2011. I love that they are a matching set. Perfect for framing together.
