Making Special Occasions Beautiful

by Katie on June 23, 2013

The end of July and beginning  of August is a really busy and special time for our family. On July 23rd Ben and I will celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary followed by my 30th birthday on July 24th and Drake’s 4th birthday on August 1st. We love to throw a party and have several parties in the works for our upcoming events.

There are 2 things that are priorities to me when I am planning a party; the 1st being the invitations and the 2nd being the cake. I think both of those things have the ability to set the tone for the whole party.  I tend to focus the majority of my party budget on these two items and think of it as money well spent.

With all of our special occasions coming up I started browsing the different invitation designs at Minted.com and loved what I saw.

My husband is throwing me a little get together for my 30th and I love the simple and clean look of this invitation.

Drake has requested a Superhero birthday party and I think this invitation fits the occasion perfectly.

Minted.com is the kind of website that you go to look for a specific item but get lost in the beautiful designs and pretty soon you find yourself looking at birth announcements even though you have no plans for a new baby in the near future.

I mean seriously….these announcements make me smile (ok, and maybe want to bookmark the page for future reference) with the pure sweetness and beauty the cards capture.

I’m so excited to get started on designing my invitations! Now to find the perfect cake….
