Invitations are so important! It’s how you tell people how great your party is going to be. Here are some of our favorite invitation inspiration.
I love creating theme parties, especially when they are easy to DIY. For my daughter’s 5th birthday this year, I’m putting together a little woodland creature themed party and I’m happy to share a few of my DIYs with you this month. These cute mini woodland invitation boxes are easy, quick and inexpensive, but they will definitely get your little guests’ attention.

Spring is finally here which means it’s the perfect time have a clothing swap! This is a great way to do a bit of spring cleaning & re-vamp your wardrobe while catching up with friends. When the party is over, make sure to donate the leftover clothing (or any other items) to your local thrift store!

I’m not always perfect at remembering the birthdays I should remember, so it’s nice to send out a little note to friends and family who live far away when it’s not their birthday or a major holiday. A great excuse to keep in touch is coming up on March 12: Plant a Flower Day! Take advantage of this awesome holiday by sending cards adorned with a flower made out of seed paper. When planted, the seeds inside the paper will bloom into real wildflowers. Even if winter isn’t over yet, these cards feel like spring!

For the past two years my family and I have been living overseas in Busan, South Korea. Since my children attend an international school they have friends from all over the world. One of the fun things about having an international group of friends is learning about the various holidays and traditions they observe. Most people are aware of the popular American holidays like Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, but what about Kite Flying Day? Kite Flying Day is February 8! I just learned about it this year and I think it is a fun excuse to gather friends, go outside, and fly a kite! Here is a fun invitation you can make for your Kite Flying Day festivities.
