So here is the big reveal, the baby's first birthday party theme. I love parties, expensive, every little detail counts kind of parties. I do try to be as thrifty as I can on all the details, and darn it, I feel like sharing how I did it all. So the big reveal......drum roll...... Vintage Luau. Oh ya. Like some old school Hawaiian surfing ladies and no bright colored flip flops and beach balls. Theres nothing wrong with it, just not for this party. I'll start at the beginning with invitations. I found beautiful, fancy wedding invitations on clearance, 30 for $10. Not too shabby, and half the work is done already. I put back $15 worth of scrapbook paper and these are super fancy. Plus I can use the rsvp envelopes for thank you cards later. I used the rsvp cards to print my handsome baby's photo on. Check em out. And I tied the card in raffia instead of the brown ribbon that came with the cards to add some beach flair, though didn't get a pic of it, sorry.
