Our Little Princess is Turning One - Part 1 - The Invitations

I can't believe how quickly the past 12 months has flown by! Our little princess, Claire, is turning 1 in 10 days. This of course means that I am in the thick of the party planning. The theme for her special day is pink, of course, with lots of tulle and all things pretty.

Her invitations have been designed and made by the lovely and talented Claire from Scissors Paper Rock Designs. Claire made Lachlan's Lego Invitations and menu labels.

The brief I gave her was pink, princess and tulle. Here is the result.

We were so pleased with the finished invitations. They were exactly what we had imagined, the guests have all commented how wonderful they are.

I spent today fluffing tulle pom poms, which I purchased from Sharnel Dollar Designs. These too are even prettier in real life. I can't wait to put all the details together on the day.
