Nick's Zoo Party - The Invitation

Photobucket

After Kelly sent over the adorable board for Nick's party, we quickly got to work bouncing back and forth ideas for the invitation. I absolutely looove what she came up with! I knew we had to incorporate the colors red and brown since those colors are everywhere in the party room at the zoo. I also did not want to go with the expected animal print. Kelly created the cutest invitation using modern white animal silhouettes and a pennant banner!

With the invitation, Kelly also created several coordinating patterns that we plan to use on many of the paper goods. I won't spoil the surprise on what I have ordered, but let's just say I am so excited to use MANY items from this collection!

Not only do I love the invitation itself, but I was so pleased with the outer presentation. I asked Kelly if we could use kraft envelopes and she quickly sourced them for me. I also have been wanting to use address label wraps and she whipped up a fantastic design! This is a snap shot she took of the envelope design hot off the press. She knew I would want a peek!

The party is next weekend and I can't wait to fill you in on all of the party details! If you are planning a zoo party yourself, or perhaps a safari or jungle themed event, Kelly is now offering Nick's Mod Safari collection in her shop!! You can find it HERE.
