When I was looking for kids birthday party ideas for my 5 year old daughter, Kamryn, I knew I needed to have an art-themed birthday party! Kamryn will spend hours drawing and coloring, so it was easy to convince her of the party theme. I started by choosing the Colorful Paint Tray Kids Birthday Party Invitations from Pear Tree Greetings. The invitation fits perfectly with the theme. You can choose a different color for the front and back of the invitation, but I really liked the colors and chose to leave them as shown on the website.

This month’s Featured Favorite is sharing fun first birthday ideas with you! Mom, Ashley, wanted to throw her one-year-old, Kalla, a unicorn-themed birthday party. Ashley personalized our Magic Unicorn Mask Kids Birthday Invitation and told us, “When I saw the magical unicorn birthday invites on Pear Tree’s website, I knew I had found the theme for my daughter’s 1st birthday party. I absolutely loved the whimsical idea of unicorns and bright colors.”

This month’s Featured Favorite is Allison who wanted a superhero themed birthday party for her son, Teddy. She chose our He’s a Superhero Mask Kids Birthday Invitation to kick off the superhero party ideas and set the tone for the birthday. Allison was able to personalize the card with ‘T’ for Teddy and change the colors. She also picked a unique invitation that doubles as a mask that the invitees can play with at home, which sets the stage for how fun this party is going to be.
Calling all Superheroes! Report to Teddy’s 2nd birthday party right away. No need to bring your mask and cape, we’ve got you covered.
This little birthday girl, Whitley, is such a sweetie and can make your heart melt with just one look into those big blue eyes. Her parents joke that she can also be a little stinker, getting into mischief and keeping them constantly on their toes. So, for Whitley’s 1st birthday party, her mom, Andrea, knew just which theme to go with – little monsters!
Andrea picked out the My Little Monsters in Purple Kids Birthday Invitations and used pink and purple as the theme for her little girl’s birthday party ideas.
To celebrate springtime in Minnesota, this first birthday party was held outdoors. The front door was decorated as a one-eyed monster and there were various tables set up for gifts, food, and areas for guests to sit. Andrea had ordered Monster Bash Kids Party Decorations and personalized them with pink to match the invitation. Big sister, Mylah (4), was in charge of sticking the party decor to the garage doors while Andrea stuck them to the tables.
Treat day in the office! These are some of our favorite days to see what our co-workers can craft up in the kitchen. This treat day was themed red, white and blue in honor of the upcoming holiday, Independence Day. Here are a few of our 4th of July food ideas that are easy to make and add to the colorful decor!
1. Layered Drinks: to achieve this look fill your cup with ice and pour in lemonade, fruit punch and Gatorade. Be sure to pour slowly and you can read more information here. Add a fun straw to top it off!
2. American Flag Dip: this idea is easy to do as well! Cut up red peppers to make stripes, add humus to be the white stripes, and blue corn chips for the blue area. Such a fun and patriotic idea your guests will adore.

It all started when, Kristin, the mom of a grad sent a message that left us teary eyed, “I just received my order and I have sat at my desk crying for 10 minutes because my daughter’s graduation invitations are so beautiful and perfect.” With that comment we just had to know more about her daughter and what kind of party she was planning so we reached out to see if she would like to be one of our Featured Favorites. She gladly accepted and we featured her daughter’s graduation announcement along with her story. After talking further with Kristin, we asked if she would share photos from her daughter’s graduation party, and again she gladly accepted :). Kristin sent us the graduation party photos saying, “It was a HUGE success and the talk of the town!” We are excited to share her graduation party ideas with you!
Morgan had a joint graduation party with her two friends. They took photos of the three girls and chose to use our Trifold Dots Graduation Invitation. They coordinated the colors in the invitation to match their clothing. What beautiful seniors!
