Adorable 1st Birthday Party Inspired By Elephant Balloon Invitation

We knew that Minted customers were design savvy, but Lynda B. has set the bar for planning a whimsical children’s birthday party inspired by a Minted invitation. Lynda came across the Elephant Balloon Children’s Birthday Party Invitation by Sweet Street Gals, and decided to extend the theme throughout her son, Jack’s, first birthday party.

Elephant Balloon Kids Birthday Party Invitation by Sweet Street Gals

Love the elephant stuffed animal, as well as the topmost alphabet block with the elephant illustration.

Lynda made this banner from a template she found on She printed each letter and used a die to create perfect circles. She then glued the letters on red paper circles to match the party theme and strung each letter on a white ribbon.

To create these custom gift bags, Lynda made photocopies of the Minted invitation and adhered them to the front of red paper bags. She finished each bag with letter stickers spelling out each child’s name.

Don’t these darling elephant balloon toppers from Bratty Cakes melt your heart?

Thanks, Lynda and Jack, for these inspiring photos!
