DIY Invitations

Polka Dot Design
Polka Dot Design was founded 16 years ago based on do-it-yourself invitations. We started it because we love doing it ourselves and wanted to offer our skills while collaborating with other do-it-yourselfers (is that even a word?). When the digital age came in with their techie gadgets and what-not, the traditional side of the artsy farsty world took a dive into a pile of steaming silicon. There is still a world of people out there that continue to love doing things themselves. It’s true. We love putting our heart in it for our kid’s 1st shoot em’ up birthday or our little girl’s wedding day. We became part of the planning process just by doing it ourselves and it makes our eyes fill with water when they love it so much. The payoff is in the love.

Whatever your reason is for doing it yourself, take a look at our Do It Yourself Invitations and be as inspired as we are.  We can help you create a swoon-worthy invitation whether you do it yourself or have us do it for you –  we will help you put it all together as easy as 1-2-3! We’re right here. Call us anytime.

DIY: Odd Balls Frosting Cupcake Invitation

Odd Balls Frosting Cupcake Invitation

When I get the urge to tackle a do-it-yourself invitation, there are few designers that compare to the whimsy and utter awe factor of Odd Balls. One of my all-time favorites is their Frosting Invitation. It is a sweet little colorful cupcake iced with loops of elegant bubble gum pink French silk taffeta ribbon. One afternoon my daughter and I had little tea party of our own and put a big stack of these together for a twins birthday party, it was their 1st birthday so it had to have extra princess appeal. We created the loops using drinking straws, cut in 2 inch sections, to hold the ribbon in place as the ribbons were strung and looped one by one (the thicker the straw the better to make the frosting look extra scrumptious). We were just tickled pink as the finished cupcakes appeared, each one different from the next. It just made our hearts jump to see how cute they turned out. You have to order Odd Balls Invitations at least once in your life!
