Natalie's Neon Adventure Party (Part 1)

October 09, 2012

For Natalie's 4th birthday we decided to go with an adventure theme. My little one loves the outdoors and is constantly so full of energy and ready to explore. This will probably be the most memorable for me since she had a hand in picking out her party theme and colors, and we had a blast crafting all the details together. 

Ok, I admit I went all-out this year with the invites! I wanted to avoid the e-vite's and emails since I personally love receiving snail mail goods. I've been obsessed with arrows and after Natalie and I watched Disney's Brave together, I knew we had to use the arrow theme for her adventure party. It kicked off the entire look and feel of everything. I designed a main invite and included a little "pocket guide" with helpful information (what to bring, what to wear, how to get there, etc.). For a modern and fresh twist, we went with neon colors mixed with neutrals. And, just to add that extra sparkle - I lined the envelopes with german gold glittered paper.

Stay tuned for more details featuring a TON of paper decor, easy DIY sweets, and fun games that all fit in with the neon and neutral adventure theme!
