You're Invited!



Today we are having Ellie's fifth birthday party although she doesn't actually turn five until the 28th. She is beyond ecstatic and has been talking about her fifth birthday party since before Christmas. After a trip to the circus she decided she wanted a party just like it, of course I was going to oblige. I gathered and ordered most everything before my surgery and today Kellen is in charge of setting up. Not an easy task for him since I am not one to hold back on a good party. Ellie made the invite list and I designed the invites and printed them at home. Okay so maybe my inspiration was completely taken from a recent baby shower invite we received, loved the three fold idea in sweet little envelopes. Hope to post the party next week!

I can't get over all the cuteness. I can't wait for pictures!

Vanessa@decor happy said...

Love the name Ellie Virginia. It sounds so old-fashioned (in a good way!) and it lends itself to the invite design which looks like it could have been handed out 100 years ago.

Hope you all have fun!
