first birthday: friend invites
With the family party behind us it was time to start planning party number two, the friend party! Declan has six or seven daycare buddies ranging in age from almost two years to three months and we also have other school friends that are a little bit older (pre-school to second grade or so). Keeping kids in that wide of an age range entertained with the same activities is nearly impossible so we decided to do a super low-key play date at a local park this upcoming Saturday. I wanted to do a cute invite but was low on time so I put to use some of the extra striped straws and some of my washi tape to make little flag invites. These were taken as I put them together on my pump breaks at work on Friday. When I picked the little man up from daycare that afternoon I placed a little flag on each child’s clipboard for their parents to find Monday morning. Easy, fun and free!
I took the type from his family party invitations and re-worded it for this party. I created a little pennant template with four to a page and printed them on card stock.
I used double sided tape to adhere the flag and cut the ends.
Green striped washi tape was added to the edges to help hold it together (and add some cuteness, of course).
And viola! Little flag invitations.
