Pinwheel Parties w/ a Girly Flair

Earlier this summer, I ran across the above pinwheel invites. Aren't they the cutest? I think I squealed in delight (outloud) as I'd been searching for fun, yet affordable pinwheel (or as I like to call them pinwhirls) invites for months. Prices are as low as $1.04 each (as of Oct. 2009) so they are quite the steal. They are available here at Tiny Prints.
***
Within hours of finding the above I received an email from a client who referenced finding the cutest pinwheel invites - she loved them so much that she wanted her daughter's entire party to be pinwheel themed. Of course I found the pinwheels she loved to be the exact same pinwheel invites I'd found only hours earlier. And no, I am not even making this up! It's the complete truth. In fact, I loved the invites so much that I decided to design an entire paper line around them - and my client was able to debut this line at her daughter's party. (More on that below.)


In addition to the invites, Tiny Prints also offers matching pinwheel address labels. Now I usually don't 'do' address labels, but this one makes me want to tear the envelope open. Can't you almost tell from the outside of an envelope when the contents are going to be exciting?!

And these custom pinwheel gift tags; I can see these plastered on goody bags, water bottles, or favor boxes.


And just when you thought I was finished; I'm not. Coordinating pinwheel thank you cards are also available. Don't you just love it when you are able to carry through a theme with so little effort? I know I do!

Speaking of carrying through a theme, as mentioned earlier, we've already created the perfect papers to coordinate with this pinwheel invite line.


Pinwheel Girl - Pink Stripe


Pinwheel Girl - Mini Dots


Pinwheel Girl - Green Stripes


Pinwheel Girl - Multi Thin Stripes


Pinwheel Girl - Thick Stripes


Pinwheel Girl - Large Dots


Pinwheel Girl - Diamonds


Above, and below, are just some of the samples of the assembled pinwheels. I think they are just too darling - these pinwhirls have just the perfect amount of girly flair.

Throughout the summer, I had at least 5 other clients mention the same exact invites so I was happy to create similar pinwheels using the above paper designs. I can mix and match a combination of the above papers to create the perfect pinwheels for your party.

Our personalized birthday party pinwheels are available in several sizes to meet all budgets.
Cupcake toppers on 4" handles begin at $2.00 each.

And many of you may be thinking, this is pinwheel birthday party is such a great idea, but I don't have a sweet little girl in my life. No problem, Tiny Prints also offers boy themed pinwheel invites. And although I haven't quite found the time to create coordinating boy themed pinwheel papers, if requested, I can certainly move these designs right up to the top of my priority list. :)Who knows, check back soon as I may even decide to surprise everyone with some designs!

And for those of you who think that pinwheels are just for spring and summer days, so not true. There isn't a better way to celebrate than turning a gloomy/cold day outside into a perfect summer day inside. And you, and your guests, will be sure to thank you for bringing some of that summer sunshine into their lives, if only for a few hours. :)
