"come have a ball" birthday 

I can't believe that my baby just turned two. I feel like I just planned her 1st birthday! Where does the time go?

I went back-and-forth on party themes...horses or balls? Bea loves them both. Since we were having the party at a children's play gym, the ball theme won out and I designed the invitation accordingly, in shades of pool blue and orange. While I couldn't exactly control the color palette of the party venue, I could control that balls would be everywhere!

Tune in this week for the party details.

Can't wait to see the party. I love your designs and sense of style. My daughter has declared her birthday party to be about dots and I've thought of the exact same colour scheme this - orange and blue.

We just used your first day back to school signs today. It was a great hit.
