Josiah’s First Birthday Woodland Creatures Invitation

This past year evolved from baby shower invite craziness to first birthday invites! How cool is that?!

McKensie asked me to make her little Josiah’s first birthday invite and wanted it to have a woodland creature feel (in her Google search for this she found Jamie’s invite from earlier this year, that was pretty cool I must say!). She sent me some ideas on the colors and type of animals she was looking for, which was such a big help in getting on the same page for what she wanted. With that in hand, I could confidently move forward with the design knowing exactly what she wanted but with room to add my own touches.

The mood board also helped me figure out my own design rather quickly, and even though I had a pretty solid idea in my head, I sketched it out so the smaller details wouldn’t be forgotten… I love the little squirrel (planned to be a bird but I changed my mind) chilling on the wooden sign. Or maybe the pendant banner…

I had a bridal shower the same day as the birthday party so I couldn’t make it but Jessica took the most adorable photos of how the cake came out, that matched the invite. Oh and of course the birthday boy, dressed in his suspenders, devouring the sweet sugar!

Can’t get much cuter than that, right?


I believe in magic. I believe in the power of true love. I believe in fairy tales and happy endings. And I live to create stationery and art for the young at heart to allow my fellow dreamers to treasure all of life’s most wondrous moments!
