A few months back I had someone contact me about the vintage Curious George birthday party that I had thrown for my daughter wanting to know if the invitations I had used were for sale in my Etsy shop.
I told her that unfortunately they were not, because the Curious George images I used for the invite and decor were scanned from books and therefore, licensed. There is quite a lot of licensed material being sold on Etsy for birthday party invites and decor and I wish I could throw the stuff I have done for my own personal events into the mix, but I don’t feel right about selling it since I’m not supposed to be.
I have since created Curious George-themed invites that don’t include any licensed images, but are awfully cute (if I do say so myself) and available in both pink and the traditional red:
Are you ready for party picture overload? Cause it’s about to happen.
For Lincoln’s 1st birthday, I decided on a slightly unconventional theme. I’m not sure where I got it, I think I saw something on Pinterest a while back that sparked the idea and then I just ran with it.
This weekend we celebrated Mia’s 3rd birthday. Not quite sure how that happened, but somehow an entire year has flown by since the vintage circus party. Our little girl loves to run and jump, laugh and dance, tell jokes and sing songs, and most of all, she loves watching Curious George.
When she wakes up in the morning, she wants to watch Curious George. When she wakes up from her afternoon nap, she wants to watch Curious George. Who am I kidding? All day long, she wants to watch Curious George. I know more about the man in the yellow hat than I do my own husband…
Happy Friday, friends! Today feels like a good day for a free printable… don’t you think?
I’m always in need of birthday cards; especially something simple and not too cutesy for boys. So I came up with this card the other day to print up and have on hand. You’re welcome to do the same! Download the card here. Print on cardstock with photo settings for best print quality.
A few weeks ago, I posted pictures from my daughter’s 2nd vintage circus birthday party, and it made me think about all the hard work and energy I put into her 1st birthday party. I threw that party before I started blogging on The Mombot, so I thought I would backtrack and share some images from her milk & cookies themed party.
On Saturday, we threw a rousing vintage circus party for my little girl, who turned 2. As usual, I went overboard on the décor and spent several hours on Friday setting it up. About half way through, I thought to myself, “why do I always this?” But once it was all up, and now that I look back at the pictures, I am so happy with how it turned out and I am glad that I put in all the effort (and so, so happy that it’s over…).
I can hardly believe it, but my baby girl is turning 2 in a matter of two weeks. Because of the holidays, I haven’t had time to do any party planning, so I finally got my butt in gear this weekend and made the invitations and did a little planning.
I decided on a vintage circus theme, and found tons of inspiration online. Here are some of the ideas I came up with:
