{Real Invitations} It’s a Sweet Shoppe for Marleycakes!

September 1st, 2010 in real invitation, sweet shoppe
It’s Wednesday!  Hump Day!
Things are just moving right along over here at SED. I’ve got some exciting news to share (but I’ll wait until all the t’s are crossed and i’s are dotted).  Even though I decided to close my books for the summer, I’ve been super busy and already working on fall orders and EVENTS! YAY! 
Here are the invitations that I created for my daughter’s 1st birthday party later this month.  I had originally thought that I was going to do a combined party for both girls, but after much twisting of my arms, I was convinced to do them separately.  Just as soon as I made the decision for another party, Chris over at Celebrations at Home posted this inspiration board and I thought BINGO… A Sweet Shoppe! My Marley is the SWEETEST little girl you could ever want, so it is so fitting.  Her nickname is Marleycakes.   I instantly recognized that fabulous styled ice cream parlor from Eat, Drink, Chic and was all over it!  Then true to fashion I see sweet shoppes and ice cream parlor stuff everywhere.  
I guess I really do pick popular themes!
Here are the invites, first the design:
Sorry I’m really not a photographer, these pictures stink (which will be fixed soon!)  But the invite is really pretty and shiny in person! 🙂 

   Dare to Dream!
