Party Invitations You'll Love

I love stationery. I really do.

I am jumping up and down to tell you about this stationery shop I've found.

All of these polka dot party invitations are designed by Aimee Austin, owner of Princess and The Peas. Aren't they GREAT?!

I love her birthday invitation designs for boys and for girls. She even created matching thank you notes and address labels for all of us who really like to coordinate our party stationery (that's me!).

Aimee's stationer is custom-printed upon your order, so changes are welcome and proofs are FREE.

What do you think of this polka dot elephant birthday invitation?

I love it too!

There are so many more adorable polka dot invitation designs now in stock at Princess and The Peas. She has photo card invitations and some really cute gifts like placemats and melamine plates too.
This is a must-visit shop for all of your polka dot party invitation needs!

Polka Dot Birthday Cake Idea

Better Homes and Gardens Polka Dot Cake Recipe:

1 package 2-layer-size white cake mix
Few drops desired-color liquid food coloring
1 7.2-ounce package fluffy white frosting mix
Pastel-color round wafer candies
Pastel-color candy-coated milk chocolate pieces or other pastel-color candy pieces (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour 2 8x8x2-inch or 2 9x9x11/2-inch baking pans; set aside. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Divide batter in half. Tint each half of batter a different color using liquid food coloring (use only a few drops to keep the batter a pastel color). Place one color batter in each prepared pan. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes. Remove from pans. Cool completely.

2. Prepare frosting according to package directions. Spread about 1/2 cup frosting on top of one cake layer. Top with remaining cake layer. Frost top and side of cake layers with remaining frosting. Arrange wafer candies on top and sides of cake in a random polka-dot pattern. Arrange candy-coated chocolate pieces around bottom edge of cake, if desired. Makes 12 servings.
