postal birthday party

My sister in law had a birthday recently and since we couldn't be there to help celebrate her birthday, we thought we'd send a little something her way. That little something morphed into a birthday party in a box.

I had so much fun putting this kit together . I don't scrapbook but I do like pretty paper so I found some papers that I liked and took it from there. I sadly had to take this picture at night so I don't think the colors came out very true but I thought it all looked pretty together. If I'd had more time, I think I could've kept adding more things to the kit...


The kit included: paper bunting banner, set of note cards, birthday party in a box "instructions", cupcake toppers, candles, cupcake liners, a mini birthday card, and a pair of handmade earrings. {Not pictured is a cake mix.}

What is your most favorite things you've ever received or sent in the mail?

Darling! I love receiving things in the mail, it's the best. I need to be better about sending things like that. Maybe now that we're heading out of state I'll be better. Maybe.

I LOVED this!! So, so cute!! It seriously made my birthday, thanks so much Heather! for some reason (well, probably kids-laundry-cleaning-schedules-and everything else moms do) my birthday is always here/there and we fit in what we can. Because you had sent all of these fun things we took the time to decorate :) and bake cupcakes! I've also used the note cards. So, so cute! Thank you again, Heather.

I'm adopting your idea and passing it along to other ladies I know that are busy and need some birthday recognizing. Thank you, thank you again! :) You're so sweet.

How cute! I love sending packages to people, especially when they're away from their families. What a cute idea for a birthday, I'll have to remember it!

P.S. I saw your blog on the Post Scripted blog!
