Ok ok, the final birthday post for the Fudgelet. I think. Unless there are more random surprise birthday parties popping up, haha. I did a lot of work for the party, starting with the invitations. I wanted to have a custom one since I had a certain theme in mind, and I also wanted to include a part for people to write a message for him when he is 18. I am saving his cards and some other mementos from his first year, and then when he is 18 I thought it would be nice to go through the stuff together. We can share with him the memories he wouldn’t remember, and he can decide if he wants to keep the items or not. Just a small box, nothing big. I might even add to it over the next few years. Who knows. Anyway, I never found an invitation that would work. Or, at least, one that was reasonably priced. So, I ended up buying blank cards, printing the written part (I had to send them to a store since our printer doesn’t do color), and assembling them myself. It took some time, but it was fun. I even had a picture mosaic for his first year.
