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.


  1. Darling invitation..... And, I am positive that you already know this, but just in case.....Martha Stewart did a kids polka dot party and had some fun ideas! We did a polka dot theme for my daughters first birthday. Also, wanted to tell you that you have inspired me tp try and make some stamped spoons. Just have to get all the supplies and find some time!

  2. Adorable! You are just like me, I just can't seem to let a birthday for the kids pass without an invitation to remember the year, even if it isn't a big party. Such a great idea. Have a wonderful time at American Girl too!

    Happy Birthday Grace! Nine is a great year :)

  3. I know it hurts a bit but those invites are so stinkin' cute and think what fun you can have with it all about Grace! Did you see these adorable gum ball necklaces from One Charming Party?

    i could see all 3 of you adorned in dots!

  4. 9???? WOW! they grow up fast!!! Way too fast!!!
    I love polka dots...can't wait to see the fun!
