So here I am again…
a year has passed since I did this last…
and I can’t believe that my little baby is turning 2…
as I design the invitation for his birthday party I’m found with one request, made by the birthday boy himself:
Airplanes and the color Orange
Yep, my nearly two-year old son had told me that he wanted an Orange Airplane themed party.
His 2 favorite things in the world.
The airplanes I get it, he loved them since he was a tiny baby ( although in my heart he’ll always be that baby) but how did orange became his favorite color….not sure
The party is at the end of the month and the design for the invitation was not what I had in mind at first.
My first idea was to make something like this
But then the airplanes I got at Michael’s (over 35 of them) were not sturdy enough and I realized that they would be broken by the time they reached their destination.
So… I went with a more vintage feeling and here is how it turned out – and I have to say I’m in love with orange polka-dotted airplanes 🙂
The airplanes were hand folded and I hand stitched each card.
I’ll be adding this invitation to the etsy shop later on this week.
What do you think?
