My littlest bean was born almost one year ago–October 19th, and it is hard to believe that we are already gearing up for his first birthday! Our oldest child had a huge birthday bash–we rented out a pool and invited all of our friends and family. In keeping with the “second child gets the shaft” theme, we are doing a small family dinner this year with just grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins. We’re teaching him that true simplicity is the height of celebration.
Even though we don’t need an invitation for just our family, I was still inspired to create a few pumpkin- and autumn-themed invites for the shop…and I will probably still print a few for my sweet pumpkin.
Then I can put one in his baby book…the same elusive baby book that I started with my oldest never finished, and haven’t even begun for my youngest. Yes, that one.
Maybe the earnings from these particular sales will fund his therapy one day.
It’s almost that time of year–I can smell the tailgate parties in the air! For a fun, unique, and inexpensive way to demonstrate your school spirit, check out my new Instant Download University prints. The one shown is for my personal Alma Mater, but they can be done for any school. Simply convo me or request a custom order from my shop, then leave the details (state, school name, year established, city where your school is located, and team mascot) in the Notes to Seller. Then purchase, print, and frame!
Well, the summer is winding down, and although I love autumn, I always feel a little nostalgic as the warm, carefree days come to a close. Well, actually… I live in Florida, so the heat will linger for another six to eight weeks, but the sky gets darker earlier, and that’s enough to make anyone a little sad.
Thank goodness for Labor Day! One last “hurrah” of summer, a holiday weekend, a party that bids an official farewell to the vacation months and welcomes a new start for families everywhere. Here are some invitation ideas for your Labor Day, Back to School, or just “End of Summer” parties:
It was my resolution to “up my game” once Summer was winding down and family vacations were coming to a close. I am so excited to get this blog up and running to let you know about up and coming design ideas, parties, promotions, and events with BeanPress! Thanks for stopping by.
