Throwback: Vintage Hot Air Ballon Shower!

Rachel is busy hosting a party for her 5-year-old (impossible! he can't be 5!) today, so I'm stopping by with another throwback for you. It's one of our favorites, perfect for bridal and baby showers and first birthdays! Parents love to say, "She's growing up up up!" and use this invitation and party pack. While we do receive some requests to change the colors, most people love it as is. I think you will see why below!  photo Blog_0551_zps295924a8.jpg The invitation included both stripes and polka dots to make it extremely versatile and playful throughout the entire party pack. Everything matched chartreuse and papaya from Paper Source. photo Blog_0555_zpsd372205a.jpg Printing on luxe paper gave everything a watercolor look. We can't afford to print on luxe all the time, but there are some cases where it is just perfect. Like this party. photo Blog_0554_zpsb59218d6.jpg We had a pretty impressive spread of food and favors. It was very much a family and local Kansas City affair - the cashews, almond granola and wild plum jelly are family recipes while the macarons and carrot cake were handcrafted with love in KC. photo Blog_0552_zps04e6e3d5.jpg Hand folded pinwheels gave the bride-to-be an extra bit of pizzazz. (See the tutorial here!) There were customized place mats and alphabet lists too! photo Blog_0553_zpsd66480bc.jpgWhile the bride opened gifts, the guests tried to guess the answers to a honeymoon trivia quiz and had so much fun we included it in the party pack. We love to give thank you notes to the guest of honor!
