4th of july

red, white and two

happy 4th of july, good people!!  i have such a cute party to show y’all today…

my friend elyssa’s daughter sydney was born on the 5th of july (although she tried to arrive on the 4th!), so a “red, white and two” party was the perfect theme for her 2nd birthday.  the paperless post invitation featured bomb pops (you know – the red, white and blue striped popsicles), and elyssa hired us to design some nice thank you notes to coordinate.

the waves liner?  love it.

we lined up bomb pops for a border on the bottom of the card…

…and also fashioned a polka dotted return address label to complete the theme!

the party was this past weekend – aka the hottest days georgia has seen in quite some time!! – so a local splash park was the ticket as the party locale.

patriotic favors…

a cake made from cupcakes…

and how adorable is this little lady liberty.

happy birthday sydney!!  i hope you all have a festive and wonderful holiday!

celebrate summer

what is one to do when holiday card season passes you by?  no no, not wait until next year to make good on a mass mailing!  send out an unexpected summer card to hit your loved ones’ mailboxes in late june or early july…

isn’t that so fun?!  i love the little red star detail between “happy fourth of july” and the family names.  it matched the dog’s collar perfectly, i just noticed.  no wait, i totally meant to do that.

and, are they not picture perfect, all three of them?  so cute.  and rhys is a doll!

hope everyone’s gearing up for some fun tomorrow!  we’re going to get up early and watch the peachtree road race with some friends.  the only thing more entertaining than running it is watching it!
