After I saw a Save The Date like this in MS Weddings, I wanted to use it for a birthday party invite. So, spy theme it was. I downloaded the templates from marthastewart.com and changed it a bit in InDesign. These were printed on my Epson Workforce 600 first printing the words, then running them through a second time to print the red squiggles. I ordered the decoders from The 3D Market.
Made a birthday banner in Photoshop and printed on cardstock. Two kinds of homemade mini cupcakes - chocolate & lemon, striped trays & napkins from Ikea, Stripey paper straws.
Who doesn't love a photobooth? I collected disguises from different stores and my own closet.
At 36 weeks pregnant, a party in our small house seemed like too much so we decided on the very awesome indoor playground in town & one of Baker's favorite places. Socks are a must so we brought extras just in case (inspired by Charmaine & Derek's bowlception I photographed in October...their extra socks even had little personalized wrappers...adorable).
Goodie bags! I have all these manila envelopes left over from photo school days so I designed labels for the bags to make them look like secret agent folders. Sunglasses from Oriental Trading, mini-notebooks from Target with smaller labels I designed, pencils for spy notes and stickers...because stickers are always fun.
