First Birthday Invites

It took me a long time to decide on what to do for Zander's first birthday. I love planning the kids birthday parties, but finding the theme is always tricky for me. When I came across decorations for Brown Bear Brown Bear I knew that was our theme. I was so excited!

Finding the perfect invite is my favorite part. It is the first impression of the party and I want something that when I look back at I will love as much as the first time I saw it, so I'll be honest I am picky.  I also love saving birthday invites in the baby book to look back on and eventually give to the kids. We have used Tiny Prints in the past for Christmas cards and Kinley's birthday invites so I knew I wanted to use them again. I have never been disappointed with the quality of their products, shipping or customer service. They are always exceptional. They also have so many choices to choose from so you really can't go wrong. They did not have a Brown Bear Brown Bear themed invite but they did have a create your own design option. Perfect!! I found the perfect design on Etsy and uploaded it to Tiny Prints. It was so easy.

Did you know they have personalized stamps as well?!! I thought that was the coolest thing! You have to go all out for first birthdays right? Again, so many options to choose from. I knew I wanted something simple but classy. I loved the simplicity of the blue "1" with a little message on the side.

I had our return address printed on the back of the envelopes which saved me tons of time. I highly suggest it! You can also choose to load the shipping to addresses on their site and have them printed and then mailed to you. All I would have to do was stuff them and get them in the mailbox. I chose to address them myself because I ran out of time to upload the addresses onto the site but I think this is a great option to remember for upcoming cards I order. Then they will be saved in all one place.

Tiny Prints is always offering deals on their websites. Currently you can get 20% off birthday invitations with code MARINVITE20 or 25% off birth announcements with code MARBA25 for all my pregnant mamas out there! I promise you will not be disappointment with the quality of whatever you order from them!

Thank you Tiny Prints for Zander's birthday invites and stamps. I love them so much and can't wait to order our next cards!


  1. They turned out great! I love the option to create your own. It is not only fun but allows you to be creative. I also save invitations from my daughters birthdays. I also save a plate and napkin. I am so sentimental. ❤
