“Blowout” Boxed Birthday Invitations


You know the saying “thinking out of the box”?  Well I like to say “think in the box”.   So when one of my favorite clients called with details of her daughter’s “blowout” birthday party at drybar in Dallas, I knew exactly what was going “in the box”.  Yet another fabulous decorated cookie from It’s a Mary Cake !

The girls will be getting their hair washed and styled (aka  the “blowout”) while munching on party treats.  So of course, Mary came up with a darling blow dryer cookie in the drybar colors of bright yellow and charcoal.

Boxed Blowout Birthday Invitation

The invitation, printed in theme colors, was slipped into a ribbon belly band that wrapped around the fabric covered padding.  It was then placed on top, allowing protection for the cookie.  Once the paper invitation was slipped out, the full party details were disclosed.

It was so much fun to continue the theme by painting a blow dryer on the box.  The 3 dimension allows for more fun details…extending the cord on one side and “blown air” down the other.  The yellow brush lettering on charcoal made a nice pop!

I’ll be creating themed favors to match and will post those in an upcoming font. Birthday parties are so much fun!

As always my calligraphy font, Belluccia, is available at myfonts.com.  Created with DIY brides and Invitation designers in mind, it helps you create a custom calligraphy look for a fraction of the cost.  Check it out!
