You're Looking Sharp WILD ONE!

Oliver's1stBirthdayParty(58).jpg

I’m prepping this week for Oliver’s 2nd birthday party that’s coming up this weekend… so naturally, I’m reminiscing over the last year, and how the heck the time passes so quickly. I thought a quick throwback to his “Wild One” party was in order!


invitations + napkins

Letterpress Invitation Suite included a Two-Color Invitation, Square Insert Card + Double-Sided Flat Thank You Cards all pressed on Cotton Paper paired with multiple Cactus Puns! And I never forget the stamp detail! I used a black/white image of Ollie’s sweet face for the postage + a custom wax seal. I then reused the plate from the main invitation and pressed on paper napkins to incorporate at the party.

birthday besties

Oliver was born a little over 5 weeks early! So what a surprise it was for my mom! Oliver was born on the same day as his Nonni. We started calling them “Birthday Besties” on the day he was born. For the very special “1st” Birthday celebration, I had them wearing matching shirts. I had a “Birthday Besties” cake topper made + I hand-painted wooden peg people to also adorn an additional cake.

our inspiration

Jeremy and I went on our “Babymoon” when I was 30 weeks pregnant (just 5 weeks before Ollie was born!) to Sedona, Arizona + the Grand Canyon National Park! Jeremy took a picture of me amongst the cacti, with a cacti shirt on… Oliver is our miracle baby & we hope he grows “Wild” and free.
