Last December, we did the sweetest Christmas cards and birth announcements for Maggie, a referred customer…and this year, we were excited to work with her on her Christmas cards again AND her son Lincoln’s first birthday invitations and other items.
Maggie and her husband lived in Japan before Lincoln was born because her husband was stationed there (he’s in the Navy – thank you for your service!), and even though they are Stateside now, she went with a Japanese-inspired theme for Lincoln’s first birthday. While this one definitely stretched our creative muscles, the end result was beyond adorable and totally original. Maggie sent us a picture of the outfit she had made for Lincoln’s party, so Beverly used that as the jumping off point for the color scheme. Maggie knew she wanted to have Sumo wrestlers on the invitation and for the favor tags to say “Miso happy you came to my party.” Beverly incorporated a bamboo pattern, sushi and chopsticks to round out the theme.
Those Sumo guys on the cake?! I’m dying! And of course I love the sushi inspired snacks.
I haven’t had a chance to update the invitation file so as to not share all of Maggie’s personal information, but I’ll share that with y’all soon. I didn’t want to wait any longer to share these pictures! Thank you, Maggie. We are so honored that you chose Sweet Birdie’s Nest to help your sweet family celebrate Lincoln’s special day.
