If there’s anything I enjoy more than a good party, it’s PLANNING a good party. Half the fun of the event is picking out decorations, making the yummy food, and (for an art nerd like me) designing the invitations. Here are a few invites I’ve done over the past couple of years:
Click on the images to see the full-size artwork. And remember that every time someone steals a picture off the internet, Jesus kills a hamster.
Baby shower invite for a very good friend of mine. Interestingly, I found out I was pregnant just a few weeks before the shower, and my son was born six months after my friend delivered her little angel.
Here’s the invitation for that little angel’s first birthday party. Emma’s photograph was taken by her auntie.
When my son turned one, we had a Star-Wars-themed party:
I was super-stoked to find that Star Wars font. I love the internet!
And here’s the design for the thank you cards I sent out after Garrett’s party:
And yes, that’s my cute lil booger in the picture, chillin’ with his BFF, Yoda.
Not really an invitation, but in the same vein: tickets for a fundraiser that a friend organized at her church:
Lastly, here’s an invite for a Halloween shindig I threw a couple years ago:
And in case you’re wondering, YES, I drew that black cat. Neat, huh? Looking at this invite reminds me that I need to start planning THIS year’s party…
