It feels good to have things crossed off the list. The invites have been sealed, addressed, stamped and mailed off to each respective gal and her mama! I decided to go with People St. Clair, an Etsy shop specializing in papery goods, for the birthday invites. I went with them specifically for the feeling of whimsy and delight I get every time I look at their cards, the cost was a plus too — 10 (5×7 cardstock) cards + envelopes for $15!
The card I chose, ‘Madeline’, reminds me of what an invite to a Jane Austen party would resemble — beautiful script, beautiful paper, and hints of femininity. I love the mustard font color and mix of script and plain fonts. Natasha, who works for People St. Clair, helped me design the card just the way I liked. I worded it in a playful manner and added a darling quote by Emily Dickinson about prairies and bees and revery.
Thank you Natasha + People St. Clair for a beautiful invite!
