For Hazel’s birthday invite, I decided to purchase a fully customizable template from Etsy. I found the perfect one from Best Celebrations, not only is the template fully customizable, the template includes an invite for a first, second and third birthday. You can send it out to your local print shop, or print it at home.
I had a beautiful, organic looking, thick cardstock so I decided to print everything at home. I decided to personalize the envelope using the “Thank You” template, which I modified to include each guest’s name.
I think it turned out beautifully, don’t you agree?
Due to Covid Constraints, we are not able to have a huge celebration as I would have liked to for Hazel’s first birthday. I made it a point that even if it was just us, Hazel would have a gorgeous party. Here in Quebec, the government has announced that we are able to hold small reunions of up to 10 people in our back yards, so we were not able to invite all of Hazel’s little friends – little friends which she has yet to meet – thanks covid! To me, attention to detail is key, which is why I’ve planned out every single detail, including the loot bags (party favors) that her would be attendees would have received.
We kept only those of the few friends that will be coming over and we dropped the others off at her friends’ homes with a little note saying “Hope wecan celebrate my birthday together next year! Love, Hazel!“
