It's finally here! I don't know about you, but fall is my favorite time of the year! Perfect weather, beautiful trees, and all things PUMPKIN! It's also the perfect time of year for outdoor birthday parties, mainly pumpkin patch parties. Our fall birthday invitations have been such a hit that we've added a couple of new designs for this year. For double birthdays, triple birthdays, friends, siblings, etc. Colors can be customized to suit your needs.

New to the site: a colorful, photo free joint birthday invitation. Offered in the shown color choices or ANY colors requested, what makes the "You're Invited" invitation design so great is its ability to be used for young children or teens. The demand for no-photo invitations has grown and we're working hard to accommodate your requests with all new joint birthday invitation designs for 2016.


Also new to the website are two new themed joint birthday invitations- a train themed joint birthday party invitation and a race car themed joint birthday party invitation


Seafood Boil and Luau Party Invitations

With summer upon us, backyard gatherings abound. Having grown up in Maine and now living in Maryland, seafood boils, lobster bakes, and crab boils are the go-to plan for a Saturday afternoon with friends. New on our site: general party invitations. The seafood boil invitations and luau party invitations can be found now, with many others to be added in the next couple of weeks. 


Our crawfish boil invitation is created in bold shades of yellow, blue and red. This invitation is also offered for lobster and crab boils as well. For those two options we've changed up the graphics a bit for a more appropriate feel (and because there are NO palm trees in Maine or Maryland!). The wording and colors can be changed to suit any other type of event you may be having. 


Below you'll find our Luau invitation. This versatile design has been used for not only Luau's, but for rehearsal dinners, corporate dinner cruises, backyard BBQ's and retirement parties! The colors on this invitation really send a summer feel. 


Both the Luau and Seafood Boil invitations can be found on the Lil' Sprout Greetings website here


New: Trendy Chalkboard Wedding/Bridal Shower Invitation

By Amanda Mackell
on February 24, 2013

Yes, it has been nearly two months since the last blog post, but with good reason: business as been B.U.S.Y.! Even working weekends, it has been difficult to catch up. Over the past few days I've managed to add a few new wedding shower invitations to the website, including my favorite design EVER. Yes, EVER.




Keeping with the trendy chalkboard theme, this wedding shower invitation offers beautiful hand drawn flower blooms (just to clarify: I did NOT draw the flowers), a ribbon detail, and a series of popular fonts. Better yet, this design is also available in a soft blue color or a lavender color to coordinate with a variety of bridal colors.



As a bonus, there are also advice cards, thank you notes, and recipe cards to coordinate with this wedding shower theme. More on these items coming soon!

Ahoy mateys! Our pirate and mermaid themed joint birthday invitation solves that troublesome issue of finding a theme for a boy-girl birthday party. Whether twins, or siblings with a few years apart, the pirate and mermaid theme appeals to a wide range of ages.

The two smaller photos on this birthday invitation can be removed to feature only one larger photo of the birthday boy/girl. The pirate and mermaid joint birthday invitation can be found on our website here.

Modern Housewarming Invitations: New Designs

By Amanda Mackell
on July 21, 2012

Per request, we've added two new modern housewarming invitations to our product line:

The "Bulletin" design uses a combination of fonts, a faux-textured background, and bold blue banner to create a simple, modern invite.



And our "Across the Map" invitation is based upon the popular state silhouette prints. A silhouette of the United States is the center of the invite, with a moving van and a heart marker placed on our location. The soft turquoise, coral and cream color scheme offers a bit of fun while the striped background, "we've moved!" banner and combination of fonts add a vintage-y element. All of these come together to form a unique, modern housewarming invite. Either of the above designs can be customized with alternative fonts, wording and color schemes upon request. The housewarming invitations can also be used for a moving celebration or moving announcement (provide your new address instead of party details). Both invites can be found on our website.
