Picnic themed 1st bday bash

Henry3 Comments
i was told, people nowadays dont send out real invitations for a birthday party anymore. 1st birthday party for a cutest girl with the chubbiest cheeks needs a real invitation! she had a watermelon swimsuit and a watermelon dress picked out by her aunties, so the theme was set on summer picnic pool party.

nothing screams picnic louder and clearer than red and white gingham tablecloth overlay with kraft paper, so i created the whole birthday package with them, including invitation, thank you cards and favor tags.

wrapped the classic red and white gingham fabric around a cardstock before layering the printed kraft cardstock.

doesnt it look just like a miniture picnic table?

"1 in a melon" is just perfect for the occasion!

same style watermelon took center stage again in the thank you cards, kept the design simple and focus on the watermelon keeping the gingham pattern out. 

favor tags made with kraft paper and a watermelon sticker, each of them was tied to a 16oz picnic drinking mason jar with a piece of red and white gingham fabric, it also serves as a name tag for the guests.
