Finn's birthday is in a month and a half but he is not shy about discussing the future event daily. Can I have Legos for my birthday? Yes. Will there be fireworks? No. Because last year's bash at the house left me on my knees, or rather collapsed and sleeping on the couch, we have opted for renting the event room at the swimming pool on the splash side. It's very affordable and best of all you are not expected to clean after yourself, major plus!
Still, it's great fun planning a party and I have already started crafting 'save the date' notes for his little classmates. The envelopes are also the notes and the idea comes from the excellent blog Boheme Circus, via pinterest (again!).
I found out quickly that the first fold is crucial and highly recommend you try your hand on copy paper which you will use later as a template. Here the new Heather Ross Prints book comes in handy as you can find many boy appropriate options on the CD as well as not so manly ones ( see below):
For Finn's I went with a beach print and teal washi tape, the information is taped as well on the inside... The front of the cards is still under consideration, how will I add the children's names, to be continued...
