lily's 7th birthday: inspiration

i started planning lily's 7th birthday a year ago (yes, it's weird, i know).
she wanted an owl party. the owl party has now morphed into an owl/woodland party.
but i didn't want a traditional brown, green, red color scheme.

the inspiration and colors came from a set of vintage camping plates

the colors are unexpected but they work so well together

i also wanted a really beautiful, quirky, vintage-y invitation.
suzanne of SHE Paperie was the perfect gal to design it.

the only instructions i had for suzanne were the four colors, an owl and a pennant.
when i saw the proof, i gasped and screamed! she is GOOD!

i want to be a paper designer just like her in my next life...

here's a little sneak peek:

there's more owl party inspiration on my pinterest board here

can't wait to show you more details of the party...
