Kreative Lil Invites thrives on customizing invitations for our client’s special events. My favorite order from October was one for a baby boy’s 1st birthday party. The theme was buttons, and the story behind it is too cute! Andrew Green was born November of 2008 and it was about the same time that the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was out. Andrew’s father could not help but call his little bundle of joy Buttons because he was so wrinkled and reminded him of the movie. And thus, the nickname Buttons stayed with Andrew, and we were able to create the perfect invitations for them. We designed four total creations for them and they chose the one that was right for them with their color scheme and preferences. This was an invitation for Andrew’s birthday and baptism, so it was a very special event for the family and we are thrilled to have been able to help them create such a unique and customized invitation!

There is no doubt that Halloween is by far my favorite holiday of the year. Not only do I love to dress up and be someone else for the night but it is also my birthday! Ok, so maybe I loved it way more back in the day, and after age 30, I am a bit more depressed every year, but I still love love LOVE to dress up!
This year, my sister and hubby threw a birthday/costume party and it was a great time! I love seeing what everyone’s costume’s are and going all out. The theme of this party was a haunted pirate ship, the Black Pearl! My sister and sister in law did an amazing job decorating as you can see from the pics. To go along with the theme of the night, I dressed up as a pirate wench however could not convince the hubby to let me make him Jack Sparrow this year. (we did that 4 years ago!) Instead he decided to be a creepy nerd…this was his “great” costume idea which he would not share with anyone until that night. Lets just say, next year, I will be dressing him up again!
We have had some really fun Halloween nights and I put together a collage of the past 5 Halloweens. (ofcourse last year I was 9 months prego with Kamran so I stayed home!)
Adam was definitely a hit this year with his Michael Jackson costume. He wanted to be MJ since the first time we asked him what he would like to dress up as for Halloween and unlike last year, he stuck with it and did not change his mind a dozen times. As for the Kamster, I know that I will never be able to get him in an animal costume again so I tool advantage of him being a baby and made him a monkey. He seemed to love it besides the fact that it was 80 degrees outside and he only lasted in his costume for about an hour! Check out the collage below of the kids dressed up through the past 4 Halloweens! All in all, this was a wonderful Halloween and I am already planning my costume for next year.
