{Peace...Love...8 } : A Hippie Chick Birthday


So with this new birthday theme, I had a whole new challenge:  turning store bought birthday supplies into something unique.  My client wanted to use the Hippie Chick theme from Birthday Express which I thing is just adorable and perfect for her 8 year old!

 So first, the invitations.  We wanted to adapt one that I already designed for my niece's birthday.  But to make it coordinate with the rest of the theme, I designed the bottom border to resemble the patterns found in the balloons and the napkins!

I also used the same idea to customize the labels for the candy buffet.... 

Centerpiece "lollipops" would be used in floral arrangements...

The banner and favor boxes...

Cake, cupcakes and cookies by a local vendor {Little Cupcake Shop} completed the look of the main table.

As always, really happy of the outcome.  I'm still missing a few pictures, which I'll post as soon as I can!

Next up: {Princess Birhthday}!!!



  1. My 6 year old wanted a peace sign birthday party and the Hippie Chick line fit the bill. Very colorful and more youthful than the other retro lines out there. We used the peace sign straws as party favors and they were a big hit!
