Polka Dot Invitation
Good morning everyone! Can you believe that our girl turns nine on Monday? This year, for the first time in 8 years, we are not having a party! It hurts a little to type that. Grace asked that instead of a party she, her Grandma and myself go to American Girl to have a girls lunch. We are pretty excited about it.
However, I couldn't let her birthday pass without a little celebration so we are having a family party. And our theme is polka dots! We decided to make it into a true celebration by giving an invitation to Grace's Grandma (she lives close enough to come) and Grace thought that her cousin, Brendan, would enjoy the gum even though he is too far to join us.
We kept everything dotty by getting round tins at Michael's and fitting the text on the bottom. We covered up the text with round bubble gums and sealed it shut with a polka dot tape bow.
