Silhouette Party Inspiration

We're loving all the silhouette inspiration popping up in parties lately, especially those inspired by children's literature. Here are a few of our favorites:

Mary Poppins Party

Peter Pan Party

Another great Peter Pan Party
from Swoon

And an adorable Goldilocks and the Three Bears Party

What other children's stories do you think would work well as silhouettes?

Celebrate your Grad


Our oldest is finishing up elementary school this year, and while we won't be having a huge shindig, it's still a great reason to celebrate. If you've got a graduate in your family or if you're one yourself, you'll love our new collection of printable Custom Silhouette Announcements and Invites. You can find them here in our Etsy Shop. Just choose your design and customize the copy for either an announcement or party invitation and they're available in an array of colors.

And don't forget our FREE Graduation Cupcake Topper and Wrapper Printables.

Many thanks to Skip To My Lou, Tip Junkie, One Pretty Thing and Craftlinky for sharing them.

I came across Olly Moss' silhouette exhibit "Pop Cameos" last night and would love to see it in person. Here's a sample of his work. See how many of the silhouette you can identify.

Happy Mother's Day

Wishing a Happy Mother's Day to you all today. This has long been one of my favorite poems, since becoming a parent. One I often remember while looking at the pile of laundry that needs to be folded or the dishes that need to be washed. I was lucky enough to come across this version at Lay Baby Lay,  which graciously offers it as a free printable here.
Words to live by.
