Looking at some of my old design projects I found these, and thought, why didn’t I blog about these before? It’s been almost two years since Dawn & Rain’s presence have totally changed up our game, and the sight of these invitations made me all the more excited about their birthday soon!
(Except for the top photo which is a mockup, these were the actual for-printing versions. Too lazy to change them up for this post, sorry!)
If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you’ll remember that I blogged about their Dedication back then but intentionally didn’t post photographs because I got my heart caught up in my throat (or my fingers!). I decided to just post one photograph that I felt summed up the entire occasion for me. Remember?
Remember also that I blogged about DIY-ing decorations for the party? I obviously got a little too carried away about that.
Of course we weren’t really thinking about birthday themes when we came up with Rain & Dawn’s names, but I love how their names make for really fun party themes, don’t you think? :) And yep, I was going through a PINK and GREY craze at the time.[line]
I offer wordpress, logo, and branding packages for creative people who dig dreamy and minimalist designs. I also design stationery and invitations for weddings, birthday parties, and events.

Here are more details from the party, almost two years ago. (Really, it’s been that long?)
(1) Pom poms and washi buntings as table centerpieces; (2) Their grandma (D’s mom!) totally went out of her way to get them these custom M&Ms with their names; (3) We DIY-ed a photobooth backdrop and hanged D&R’s onesies; (4) D&R’s second names were after their grandma’s names, so we placed pictures of our moms carrying us when we were babies on the table display; (5) Happy Lolas and their grand daughters; (6) My husband and I, with D&R’s twin Bitbit the Rabbit by Spinkie.
