alphabet/flashcard party

I love this alphabet/flashcard-themed 1st birthday party that one of our readers, Leigh, was kind enough to share with us. The theme of the invitation was "A is for Alex" and Leigh had her brother-in-law create a line drawing of her son from a photo.

The invitations were printed on heavy cardstock, front and back and then the corners were rounded like a flashcard. Brilliant!


Leigh continued the alphabet theme with an "ABC chandelier...."


...a flashcard banner....


...flashcard food labels (I absolutely love these)....


...and, finally, water bottle labels.


Favor bags were filled with M&M's and sealed with a label reading "This party was brought to you by the letter Mm." Darling!

This is adorable. I have a quick question about how you do your water bottle labels. Do you tear off the original label? Is your label just a printed sticker? How do you go about doing this?
