Sesame Street Inspired First Birthday Party Invitations - Jackson

I have a very special cousin (kind of like a nephew) named Jackson. When his first birthday came around this year, I jumped at the opportunity to help Jackson and his family celebrate one of Jackson's first loves on this planet: Sesame Street. 

Certainly, there are lots of takes on Sesame Street invitations out there but I really love these for Jack. They incorporate his cuteness face and announced his milestone in a way befitting of his personality. I mean, just look at this cutie:

While simple and clean, I added a bit of whimsy in the wording of the invitation - "Please join us for a celebration brought to you by the number 1"...

But I think my favorite part of these invites were inviting all the guests in on the fun through my latest Greatest Story Events & Weddings service: Creative Addressing.

In addition to Italic Calligraphy, I also offer personalized, creative addressing tailored to your event or wedding. As an extra bonus, this service also includes invitation assembly, making it both super easy and fun for busy party hosts.

So what is "creative addressing?" Well, it looks like this:

One of the fun elements for Jackson's invitations was creating not just this one design shown above, but SIX different versions.

Each was individually hand-lettered and hand-colored (with colored pencils, naturally Sesame Street-like), so guests received any given design at random! This certainly made for a lot of fun and excitement in terms of snail mail.

Probably the most detailed creation was this one-of-a-kind envelope featuring none other than Oscar the Grouch. He's a true original.

Lastly, as you'll see below, the invitations were complete with a baby block alphabet letter-inspired return address for the family.

Happy, happy first birthday Jackson! My wish for you is that you one day graduate from Sesame Street to loving The Muppets.
