BLING! Party Invitations

Being creative by nature I love to plan a good party. So last month with it being the Kids 8th birthday I got plan another party. Yay!

Trying not to be too over controlling I always try to include the kid in picking the theme of her party every year... it goes something like this.
Me: how about a rainbow party?
Kid: Hello Kitty
Me: awww Hello Kitty - everyone has Hello Kitty -lets try something different... ummm how about a picnic party. We can have lots of small foods and have a picnic basket and everything!
Kid: picnic mmmm - ok
 
Then after the planning had started my lovely friend Being Brazen comes to visit... and she says "so kid what party are you having this year?" Kid tells Brazen that she is having a picnic party and brazen asks her ... "Is this really what you want?" (naughty Brazen) and Kid tells her... ummmmmm (long pause) So brazen quickly jumps n saying "What about a black and white party? or a pink party or a bling party?" Kid: Bling party! YES!

Hence the party was changed mid planning from picnic party to BLING! party. I was happy as I hadn't bought anything yet and had only been planning in my head and had been making menu's and collecting recipes etc... And Bling sounded so Sparkly .. and what girl doesn't like Sparkles right?

So began the making of invitations:







and the bright pink envelopes sitting on my kitchen table waiting to be delivered.


Hope you enjoyed this non- food related post.
Have a fabulous week
