Yes, it's the time of the year again when my kids are going to turn a year older!
Having three year end babies, two of whom have birthdays which are two days apart, means that it's quite a busy period for us every end of the year. Now, while we don't have grand celebrations and even our home parties are just intimate affairs, I still like to make their special days feel a tad more special just to build up the precious memories during these fleeting years.
With the house moving that is happening very soon, it's going to be quite impossible for us to hold the parties in the comfort of our own home - which is what I've tried to do all these years. So, we'll be outsourcing venues for the kids' birthdays this year and I'm happy to share that The Tiara Society has kindly offered to host a Princess Party for Angel and Ariel! Yes yes, it's going to once again be a combined party for the girls but following its success last year, I actually feel it's quite sweet to let these two sisters share the joy, enjoy the celebration and blow the candles as one.
So, some of my friends said I'm silly to have rejected the birthday invitations and party favours, which could have been provided for our guests and we didn't need to put in any effort, and instead insisted to make our own despite our mayhem at home. It's just a small token of our sincerity and the least we could do to show our appreciation to the guests who are going to be a part of the special day. I'm also determined to let the girls play a part in making the favours because I want them to make something simple yet personalised and speaks of love from their hearts.
In this week's Creativity 521, I'm sharing about the Princess Party Invitation which we made.
1) Pink card stock
2) White copier paper
4) Acrylic plastic buckles (from eBay)
5) Pink ribbon (from Daiso)
6) Sticky tape
7) Double sided tape
As you can see, I left a blank space when I designed the text so that I could add in a strip of ribbon and slide the buckle in, as shown above. To secure the two sides, I used sticky tape to stick the ends of the ribbon behind the white paper.
