Postby Gennessa » Wed Nov 11, 2009 1:48 am

Hi everyone - I have not visited this site in a long time. 9 months to be exact. But I have a question and I knew this was the place to ask. I have look ed and looked for invitations and decorations for my twin boys first birthday that is coming up in January and I can't find a good website. Any one have any ideas or suggestions? Please let me know.

I ordered a bunch of stuff from oriental trading company, I think their site is www.orientaltrading.com. Make sure if you order from them, do a google search for a coupon code before placing the order, that saved me a bunch. I did a Hawaiian luau for Ella and got some cheap decorations from them. They had many many themes to choose from. Good luck!

We did a cowboy theme....friend of ours brought their ponies, too. Celebrate Express....has everything cowboy themed along with Oriental Trading. Actually, if you wanted to go this route...I am getting ready to sell all my stuff. We went all out and have alot of decorations, etc.

I second that with orientaltrading company, cheap gifts and quality was ok. I did a jungle theme, table mats, noise makers, beach balls and decorated a safeway cupcake cake with finger puppets, cupcake cake is the way to go! For invitations, I made my own with the theme I picked and a picture of baby then sent to costco to print. If you pick a theme and send me a couple of pics I can send you a trial invitation for you to rpint at costco or anywhere, I am a photoshop junkie! PM if you would liket that, if not, no probs!
