Down on the Farm

Monday, May 17th, 2010

The family and I headed down to the farm this weekend to check out a possible birthday party locale for our soon to be 3 year-old (technically he won’t be 3 until November, but we are trying to get a head start). In any case, it got me thinking about invites, particularly farm birthday invites so I pulled up the old www.Invitationbox.com and boom look at these great finds.

We totally love this Barnyard Animal invite that we designed right here at Ibox.

Here is another great one by Picture Perfect – A Cluck and a Moo and a Cock – a – doodle – DOOOOOOO!

One more thing – here at Ibox, we have a really cool solution to party favors. Why give the kids junk they don’t need or something that immediately goes in the trash – check out these farm themed placemats. We can even personalize them with each kid’s name!

Well, that is it for today – have a good Monday.

Summer is Here!!!

Friday, May 14th, 2010

The calendar may still say May, but temperatures have started climbing, the days are getting longer and as far as we here at InvitationBox are concerned, Summer is here. The team here went so far as to cook out hot dogs on the grill for lunch today. This got me thinking about all the great Summer parties and BBQs coming up over the next few months. Our printing department has started to ship some very cool Summer and BBQ themed invites and I wanted to share a couple with you guys.

We all love this original IBox design —– Crabby the Beer Thief!

Here is one for the kids by our friends at Picture Perfect

Finally, this tropical scene by Four Seasons has me longing to hit the beach for some hard core relaxing and WOW – it is on “Super Sale” for 25% OFF! Get them while they last.

That’s it for today – have a good weekend.
