Flamingo Party Invitation

Flamingo Party Invitation Emery's Birthday   |  jamiray.com

We’re counting down the days until Emery turns 3 and these little gems just arrived in the mail. You might remember my flamingo party inspiration that Emery picked out during a recent Pinterest browsing session. A lawn flamingo and striped umbrella order later, we officially have a theme for Emery’s third birthday along with the cutest flamingo party invitations. Of course, I have to throw as much black and white in as I can while I still have the power to do so. Still finishing up other details for the party and I’ll be sure to share the final results along with all the birthday fun on the blog.

P.S. If you’re a font nerd like me, discovering and using new fonts is practically a hobby. The typeface for “Emery” on the invite is one of my new favorites – Ribbon font. Download it here.

Pretty Sweet Lunches

Clearly, these ridiculously adorable lunches put my daytime culinary skills to shame (sorry, Em!). I’m usually throwing together the odds and ends of a semi-well-balanced lunch on my way out the door. At least I can aspire to one day pack a mid-day meal with this kind of goodness and style. One day!
Take a look at these cute meals and prepare to be put to shame.

first birthday party inspiration

It’s nearly the end of January which means the last day of March will arrive and greet us in the blink of an eye. What’s the last day of March, you ask? Why, it’s my sweet Emery Lynn’s birthday and 2012 marks her FIRST. My once tiny little baby is practically a toddler and is turning one in a mere two months. I realize I’ve got to get my act together and plan a birthday celebration fit for a princess a cool kid.

I’m not really one for smocked dresses, enormous bows, cartoon characters or monograms on every possible surface, so I’d like to keep this party relaxed, laid-back, coordinated (read: not matchy-matchy) and certainly not cheesy. Sorry Dora and Disney, you’re simply not invited this year. As much as I was against pink in the beginning of this “We’re having a girl!” journey, I’ve come to accept it and even appreciate the ultimate girly color when it’s accompanied by pops of turquoise, bold graphics and even vibrant floral patterns. With this in mind, along with my beloved gray and white chevron pattern, I’ve pinned several bits of inspiration for the party-to-be.
