This is the invitation I made....
I am all for doing my own invites! All you need is your comp, design software (I use Publisher), & I print them at Walmart.
This was the start of her backdrop for her cake table!! I used foam board that I bought at the Dollar Tree! I always keep some on hand bc its so cheap...I usually pick up a few pieces whenever I go in there. I put two of them together and then wrapped it in yellow wrapping paper..came from the Dollar Tree also but I already had it on hand. For the words/letters I used my Cricut Mini. So technically it cost me nothing bc I had this stuff already in the house.
This is the finished backdrop
Party pics taken by Jennifer Carter...check her out on facebook @ Jen Carter Photography.
She also took the pic that's of my daughter in the invitation!
This is the cake.... I am not a cake decorator at all. But I didn't want to spend tons on something that was going to be consumed in a hour. I am going to take some piping classes bc I buy piping supplies all the time but I have no clue how to pipe (its a secret obesssion...shhh!!) :)
For favors I gave every kid a goldfish in it's own little bowl...they were a big hit!! Even the girl in the pet store thought it was a cool idea. I just wanted to do something different than the typical goody bag!!
Here are a few more pics that I have...these are more "sneak peek" pics the rest are been edited!
I will be adding more pics!!!
Until next time...
