the challenge: an invitation for a mall scavenger hunt party for two girls turning 10. some requests: pink & black, something involving a camera and money. the result: another top personal favorite!
as i do with many invitations, i started with a logo. actually, two in this case--a primary "shop" logo on the bag and a secondary one on the camera. the bag was packed and ready with a camera, money, and even a receipt. the main party information was on the screen on the back of the camera, with additional information and fun touches on the store receipt. information aside, the personalized money was the highlight of the whole ensemble!
while the shopping pieces and parts really make it wow, the camera could actually be a great invitation on its own. with the birthday girls' names and age on the front, and the party info on the back, everything is all on one piece. i'm thinking neighborhood scavenger hunt or some other photography themed party in its next life!
the birthday "store" logo also came in handy when it came time for cake. they wanted something easy to serve in the mall, in a coordinating pink and black. chocolate cupcakes with pink buttercream were the perfect choice! i topped half of them with cookies & cream hard candies, to pull in a little black and white, and the other half with logos that i punched out and attached with toothpicks. totally yummy & nicely matched!
