Thinkdig’s Weblog

I’m Katie, a graphic designer who mostly somersaults through life. My blog is all about things that inspire me – be it art, design, or other snippets i find along the way.

surprise party

a few weeks ago, my mom turned 50! she insisted that she didn’t want a party…so we threw her a surprise one! here’s the invite i designed…


i decided to go with a sophisticated yet feminine look using a berry and citrus color palette. being unemployed does have it’s perks – i had time to create all kinds of decorations for the party including flags for the dessert, hanging bursts, cut-out happy birthday sign, table settings, and the centerpiece.


we decided to have the party out in our shop office on the farm where i grew up. so i was fighting the ugly paneled walls & florescent lights. but all things considered, i think the end result turned out alright.






she was really surprised and everyone had a blast celebrating. i think it’ll be a birthday that will go down in the “remember-when’s”.
