Last week, we showcased one of our bestselling designs year after year and failed to mention that it is available in TONS of colors! So here’s just a few for your Thursday morning viewing pleasure! (And you know they’re also available in girly color combinations, gender neutrals (great for girl / boy twins), sparkles… and of course for ANY age because all birthdays are a BIG deal)!
It was our little one’s first birthday that started it all… my love for great design, perfectly curated parties, and fun and bold birthday celebrations! And after over six years of being in business, our “Big ONE” first birthday party collection has remained the bestseller. Bold polka dots, fun stripes, and chic argyle all in charcoal, bright blue, baby blue and lime green… what more can any little boy need for his big day? Those have remained my most favorite color combinations for boys. And even better? They are super easy colors and patterns to match.
Looking for lots of green + blue inspiration? Well look no further! You can find tons of party inspiration on our Pinterest page and even more matching items for our ONE collection available.
There are a bunch of new designs up in the shop this week. As the kids have gotten back to school and life has settled down a bit, I’ve gotten a few extra minutes to sit down and list some previously custom-designed invitations from this past summer back into the shop. And this is one of my favorite. I mean, how cute is this?! You don’t get a brighter, bolder and cheerier party theme that this gold and rainbow invitation. And so easy + fun to coordinate for your little girl’s big day!

Coming from someone with a winter birthday, as a child I believed (and still totally believe) that there is no better birthday party than a pool party! Fun in the sun + all your friends AND cake and birthday gifts?! Come on! It doesn’t get any better than that when you’re a kid!
As luck would have it, I have an ENTIRE house full of winter birthdays. Yep, that’s right. All of us! And so what’s a girl to do? Well… design a pretty awesome pool party birthday collection for everyone else. Because someone has to have a pretty fabulous pool party!
We just ADORE summer over here… and what could be better than a summer picnic party with fabulous, bright + happy, pink + yellow flamingos?! Really, it doesn’t get any better than flaming-ling with neighbors and friends! And what birthday girl wouldn’t love a flamingo party?
The Birthday Battle in our house has begun! So we happen to have a house filled with two crazy boys both celebrating birthdays within weeks of each other. Which means there are a lot of celebrations going on at once. And when your mom designs birthdays for other kids, you inherit the perk of asking for any kind of custom design imaginable. My kids take full advantage of that. However, this year, they both actually agreed on what they wanted… a dart gun party. Where they could run around and shoot every one (and get presents for it). So this is the first year we actually shared a birthday party. OMG… what have I been missing all these years?! Yes. Share. It’s a magical word that carries with it half the mom-work. Really. Half the work. Why had I never realized that!?
Dart Gun Birthday Invitations
So a dart gun theme it was.. and boy oh boy, we had LOTS of fun with it. We started with fabulous invitations and added lots of bulls eyes, polka dots and orange & blue details everywhere. We rented out a local gym and party room, brought our own dart guns, kids’ eyeglasses, and 1,600 darts. Yes. You read that correctly. 1,600 darts. And it was A-MA-ZING! We stood up firm mats that the gym provided to act as shelters and forts on the field. We had pizza and adorable cupcakes. (Check out my cupcake decoration post for all my secrets on how to never bake but still have awesome, easy birthday desserts). And lots of dart favors. Those already came pre-packaged (Thanks Amazon!), and all we had to do was print our favor tags on sticky paper and throw stickers on them. Did I mention that the adults seemed to have more fun than the kids? Yep, there’s something really rewarding about shooting your own kids with dart guns. It really does make you feel better.
Dart Gun Birthday Invitation with Photo + Cupcake Topper
Just a little sneak peek of one of our new birthday party themes. This one is currently being “tested out” by two little boy’s in this house on Saturday at their big Birthday Battle!
I am sooo glad these darts are going home as party favors with all the attendees and not back on my basement floor to be endlessly picked up. By me. Because you know I’m the one that ends up with that job!
