max sutter's birthday party

MomLogic.com is teaming up with Trista and Ryan Sutter to throw their son Max his first b-day bash, and I was excited to be asked to help style the event! Even better, MomLogic is asking readers to help plan the party too – by voting on certain elements to select what will actually be used!

So for the first element of the party – the invitation – I designed 3 options that match the party’s “Candyland” theme. You can vote for which design you like best, and whichever design gets the most votes is the one that Trista & Ryan will send out. The 3 options are below (click to zoom), and you can vote here …we’d love to get your input!

Option A:

max sutter's birthday party

Option B:

max sutter's birthday party

Option C:

max sutter's birthday party

    So cute! I threw a Candyland party for my daughter’s 3rd birthday. It was so fun and easy to do! We held it at the Water Conservation Garden in Cuyamaca College and used their pathways for a real-life candy land game. I have some pics on my (not-so-updated) blog : http://iamleese.blogspot.com/2007/12/myas-candyland-birthday-result.html

    I think 3 looks the most like an invitation. #1 is cute but looks like an ad.

    I think B has the focus on the birthday, as much as I love the candy tree. Great ideas!
    FYI, watch for my new blog design being intoduced the week, it is nicey nice!

  15. Hilary says:

    I love B, definitely the best!

  16. Brenda says:

    I like option C the best as it looks the most birthdayish – but I wish it has the day of the week (Saturday) above the date like the other 2 invitations.

  17. Mimi says:

    Option B!!!

  18. Melissa says:

    I love the simplicity and design of A! These are awesome. :)

  26. kyle says:

    I like A the whimsical feel is much more fun.

  27. kristine says:

    Option B!!! LOVE IT!

  28. Elizabeth says:

    A, for sure. I like the pop against the white space!

  29. Beth says:

    Option A! Very Candyland-ish indeed!

  30. Aubrey says:

    I like A & B, but if I were to choose I would go with B, for sure. A is cute becasue it screams the candyland theme, but I think that B pops out at you and I like the straightforwardness of it and i fee like it’s easier to read.

    I voted on the site but just have to say that I love A!

  34. bakingblonde says:

    No contest: B is the only way to go!! The first one looks like a coupon I would get in the mail for a big store sale and the third is not catchy enough for me! LOVE B!

  35. Jo-Ann says:

    It took me a long time to choose, but I think I like B the best. Great work!
