1st Birthday Invitation {letterpress}



My son had his first birthday a few weeks ago. This invitation was way more fancy than the affair itself, but when you own a letterpress, any excuse to design and print an invitation is a good excuse! I designed it to be a two-color job, but we streamlined it into one color when we got a rush of Christmas orders. I still love how it turned out. I also got ambitious and wanted to make cupcakes for the party. In the end, I had the cupcakes made at VG's Donuts & Bakery. My mother-in-law helped me make the surfboard toppers out of fondant. I think they turned out swell! Happy Weekend!
