Car Birthday Invitations

Pin It
It's that time of year again!
I can't believe it, but my little buddy is turning two!

We had such a great time at last year's Winnie the Pooh party,
and we're looking forward to more good times at this year's Car party.

It took me about 1 millisecond to figure out what the theme should be for this year.
We pretty  much eat, sleep, and breathe cars around here.

While Ben loves the Disney Pixar movie 'Cars',
and I've seen some awesome 'Cars' parties out there,
we opted for cars in general.
Updated vintage?
Is that a thing?
We're making it a thing...

So here are the invites.


I have a new love of my rounded corner tool.
And for square invites.


However, I couldn't find square envelopes that I liked,
so I made these with some fun-colored paper I had.
Who doesn't love some washi tape?

So, obviously, I'll let you know how it all turns out!

I'm purty psyched!



  1. those are wonderful! i like the idea of going vintage cars over disney cars.

  2. I was wondering what fonts you used for this invitation. I'm terrible at picking fonts that compliment each other and I am also doing a vintage theme party. Love the party ideas from the invitation to the stop light condiment tray! Just amazing.

  3. I love what you did with these invitations! Can you tell me what fonts you used? I am also throwing a vintage themed party and would like to copy this idea for the save the date cards. I love your awesome party decor skills from the invitations, to the fuzzy dice and re-fuel station, to your mom's amazing traffic light condiment holder!

    1. Hi Amara! Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you. Here are the fonts I used (in somewhat of an order): Cupcake, 1942 Report, JFFerrule, Andreas Typewriter, Rockwell, and Georgia. If they aren't standards in Word, they are free online. Most of them can be found in my Resources board on Pinterest. Hope that helps!

  4. I'm not handy what so ever :( So how do you get the car image and the date circles, etc. I'm assuming you use photoshop or something of that sort??

    1. Hi Corinne!
      The invites were done in Photoshop. The car image I found online and the circles for the dates are basic shapes found in Photoshop. If you don't have Photoshop or are not comfortable with it, I'm sure you can find many of the same editing features in Microsoft Word. Hope that helps!
