I have to admit, October snuck up on me quickly. I was and had actually attempted to send out e-vites, but at the last second decided to whip up something creative instead. Mind you, I'm not dogging e-vites, I love them and use them (although now I use pingg.com; much user friendly for me) but c'mon people what kind of mom can't make 3 stinking invitations? So, I hopped over to my friend Sarah's blog, Create Studio for a refresher of a construction party she threw for her little guy. Using her simple and FREE idea of using cardboard and duct tape to construct them together, I was very happy with the result. I even used painter's tape and tool stickers I had from scrapbooking years ago.
The invitation read:
On your mark, get set, GO!
When it was present time and everyone went inside, the birthday boy decided to take a cruise on his bike. I think he wanted the whole "fashionably late" title and not look to eager.
We got him a couple interactive construction books and he loved one so much he actually left the party to go read it by himself.
He loves the CARS placemat and utensils! Thanks Aunt Bridge and Gretch!
