Mr. Messy: Birthday Invite Year 3


When Hendrix turned 3 we had a messy party. I’m totally cheating on this one because I had very little to do with the design process here. In fact, my only contribution involved formatting the party details on the back of the postcard invitations; not very exciting (and yes, I am a big fan of postcard correspondence. I once designed a postcard wedding invitation—at the bride’s request, can’t beat the cheap-o postage).


Hendrix designed the rest of the invitations himself by painting a unique image on the font of each card.


After all the invitations were dry, I helped Hendrix stick white Avery labels to the font of each card that said, “Let’s get messy.”


This party was Hendrix’s favorite to date—with certainly the best designed invitations to date. I loved each and every one of his creations.


By the way, if you ever host a messy party for your child you absolutely must have a kiddie pool full of wet spaghetti noodles, your kids will think you’re the coolest parent in the world and all the neighborhood children will agree.
