Designed by none other than John Bear, the tireless 80’s toy and movie pusher, Benjamin’s birthday invitation garnered such a strong reaction from everyone who found it in their inbox that I had to share.
When Benjamin saw it he jumped up and down, and then after a few more viewings proceeded to tell me the play by play of how he ended up in the snow fighting Empire-bots with his “life saver.”
The invitation is building hype for the party among Benjamin’s four year old buddies. Rumor has it they’ve been printing copies out and carrying them around, pestering their mothers for more details and advance tickets.
Deception is an art and it’s call Photoshop. The invitation makes me seem like a well-organized, put together mom who plans everything far in advance. But, don’t let it fool you.
After weeks of toiling over the idea of an expensive bowling alley or skating rink party, I decided to rent out Wild Goose Creative under the Cement Marketing offices. Then I asked John if he could make an invitation. Three hours later there it was and a party was born – for well under my budget.
The plan now is to sit a group of costumed kids down in front of a giant projection of a Star Wars movie. Then we’ll let them run free to eat food, cake and play a few games. The adults can escape upstairs to the Cement offices for private kid-free time.
Done and done. I’m such a slacker.
