As summer is quickly coming to an end, not quick enough if you ask me, we are gearing up for Mr. Bryce’s Batman Birthday Party! This year we decided to get smart and book our neighborhood clubhouse for the party. My mom and step-dad and sister and her family always come up and my in-laws and grandparents in laws come down. We end up with a FULL house, let me tell you. In the past I have had to juggle guests with party planning and this year I am SOOOOOO happy that the party will not be here. So very happy. You have no idea.
Let’s be honest. The boys birthday parties are really just an excuse for to me have fun. They couldn’t care less about the cute little food cards, or the invitation, or the little framed decor on the tables. But I love it. I am crafty and this is my two times a year that I can really put my skillz and the Silhouette to the test! It’s awesome, I love it.
The husband? Yea, not so much. Every year he’s all, “Now Tracy, don’t get carried away.” And well, let’s just say that I always try not to go crazy, but inevitably it’s the night before the party and I’m up until 1 AM hanging streamers and little metallic bits of plastic from the ceiling with rubber adhesive that, much do the delight of my husband, ends up leaving greasy spots or taking the paint off all together!
This year Bryce is having a Batman Birthday Party. He is so excited! This is probably the first time he’s really understood what’s going on. He will be 3! I can’t believe it! It feels like it was just yesterday that we were juggling planning his first zoo/safari themed birthday party while moving into our new house and now it’s been two whole years!!
So far I have finished his Batman and Robin birthday invitations. I am loving the little toddler batman and robin. So adorable!!
If you are looking to make your own it’s super easy. I just searched Batman clipart on etsy and you can purchase all kinds of graphics. They are super cheap, I paid less than $10 for everything! Then just throw it all into PicMonkey and BAM! You’ve got an invitation.
I used Evite to send them out. Since I made a custom invitation I had to pay for the service, but I think it was $12. It would have cost me that much to print them out and mail them, so I was OK with that. This way all my RSVP’s are really easy to handle.
In the past I have just ordered the invitations from an Etsy shop and paid $15 to have them do it, but I knew this time I wanted to have the graphics to make other cute printables for the party. It took about an hour of fiddling to get it just how I wanted.

I suggest using Powerpoint to add the text, it is a great graphics editor for those of us that don’t want to pay for or deal with Photoshop. You can also check out Pixlr, it’s a free online graphics editor similar to Photoshop. The number in the middle was made it PicMonkey. You can also add the text there. I
