Summer Fun Party


Well, last week we had a birthday party for our youngest son (six years old). It was the second-to-last day of school here, so I thought we'd go with a fun summer theme.

These were the invites:


Really simple but still fun. His favourite color is yellow, so we always have to incorporate it somewhere, but it's easy with a summery feeling invite. I think Just Beachy and the matching wheel is such a cute fun combo. Everything here is super simple. The sun and bucket are colored with SW Markers. The sand bucket is cut out and popped up.

And here's what we did for treat bags (or buckets in this case).


We found fun sand pails with shovels attached at the Dollar Store, and then added fun summer treats and activities inside.


I used the Top Note rolled with the wheel and the large oval punch for the labels (words run through the printer). Then just added a cute tag on for each child's name.

OY VEY were these kids energetic! I know they were beside themselves to be together, whew I was pooped when it was all over!

Recipe: Stamps: Just Beachy, Lazy Days Wheel, Hugs and Wishes; Ink: Summer Sun, Brilliant Blue, Real Red, Craft White; Paper: Summer Sun, Brilliant Blue, Real Red, Whisper White; Accessories: Top Note Die, Big Shot, Tab Punch, Circle Punch, Tag Punch, Large Oval Punch, SW Markers, Dimensionals
