Come one, come all

Come one, come all to Grace's 4th birthday. In case you haven't already guessed, we are going with a circus themed birthday party and the party is THIS weekend.  Beware, there will be lots of circus themed posts around here.

Being an avid DIYer, it may surprise you, I went with store bought party invitations.  I found them at Hobby Lobby and thought 1. these are really cute and 2. this will save me some creative energy.

But in a Sandra Lee fashion {from Food Network}, I decided to take a semi homemade spin on my invites.  I used my Martha Stewart elephant stamper and a grey paint sample swatch.

Grace helped lightly glue the elephant cut outs onto the invites.  Yes, if you live in this house, you get sucked into my crafting sweat shop :)

The finishing touch, we stamped an elephant onto the back flap of the envelope.

Tada...not bad for semi homemade, huh?


  1. LOVE semi-homemade! I'm going to be posting a semi-homemade torte recipe soon. :) Can't wait to see the rest of the party!!

  2. That elephant punch is so cute! I love how serious Grace is in the picture. You can tell she was giving you her best work! I so wish we lived closer so Riley and I could crash. I can't wait to see e rest of the party.

  3. SO FABULOUS!!!!!!!! Those invites are super cute. The elephant touches you and Grace added are just perfect! I can't wait to see the rest of the party. ;o)

  4. They are gorgeous! please send me one, i also want to go to the circus :-)

  5. I love a good homespun party...especially when it involves creating a unique invite! *love* this one!

  6. I agree sometimes it's ok to save some creative energy... besides semi-homemade still counts:D

  7. Those are the most adorable invitations I've ever seen!
