Why am I posting about an invitation? Because I have the absolute joy of planning a Nutcracker "Sweet" Birthday for a beautiful young lady who will be turning FIVE soon!
Her love of the Nutcracker began last year after reading the book and then attending a magical evening at the ballet performance with her parents. Enchanted with the story, she was captivated by the idea of having a birthday with the same theme - and I was just as pleased to help plan and design it! :)
I began searching the wonderful world of Etsy for the perfect invitation some months ago and found Andrea from The Green Grass Grows. Her designs were just what I was looking for and after e-mailing back and forth about the invitation details and style - she came up with what you see above! Perfect!!! Just the right touch of magic and vintage Christmas!
We could have sent it just as it was, but after a quick consultation with the birthday-girl-to-be, decided to add just a bit of sparkle! Here is the invitation getting her first coat of glam!
And here is the invitation complete with shimmer and shine (silver glitter around the edges and some candy cane pink glitter for the silhouette image)!
Stay tuned for pictures of the actual event sometime in the next two or three weeks! :)
