Celebrate with Peacock Parties!

At Peacock Printing we love making one of a kind wedding invitations and decorations for those special couples but that’s not the only thing we do! We also specialize in children’s birthday invitations and decorations!


One of our most popular birthday invitations is the Passport invite, which is featured on our Peacock Parties Etsy Page. If you’re looking for a fun, creative theme for your child’s birthday party this invitation is perfect for you! This invitation has a safari theme, which you can personalize with a die-cut of your child’s favorite animal on the front! Open it up and you’re ready to travel with our life-like passport “stamps” of tropical and jungle destinations covering the inside of your invite. These passports are customizable so you can create the best invitations for your child’s birthday! If you’re interested in purchasing these invites or any of our other unique birthday decorations you can do so on our Peacock Parties Etsy page.


These invitations can be customized with a wide variety of animals, and can either include a photo or be filled in with different animals. They can also be customized in a number of color schemes if your child has a favorite!

Peacock Printing will go above and beyond to make your child’s birthday unforgettable, not only with our birthday invitations, but with decorations and stationery that are unique to your theme! We love being a part of your child’s birthday celebrations and we especially love to see photos of the party and the unique DIY projects that you do to make your child’s birthday special!


Last fall we had the pleasure of working with Charity, a mom of two of the MOST adorable children, on her son Rayden’s first birthday party (and we have since worked with her on a few more parties!). We were happy to supply her with our jungle safari themed invitations and decorations!

For this party Peacock Printing provided a variety of items: invitations, tented cards to label food items, “Rayden is ONE” on sticks to put in the food displays, several banners (“Happy 1st Birthday Rayden”) and another for the highchair (“one”) as well as a photo banner (above) with 12 slots for Charity to insert a photo of Rayden for each month up to one year. For her favor bags, Charity had a unique idea – we supplied Charity with the images and she painstakingly cut out the animal faces to attach to the bags!


Not pictured is a poster that she had made with details about Rayden – his age, favorite foods, first word, favorite things to do, etc. What a memorable thing for a first birthday! It, of course, followed the theme and I’m sure was a talking point for her guests.

On top of these decorations, Charity (as she usually does) came up with some of her own DIY projects to make this party memorable for her son and they were amazing! Her goodie table was impressive, too. She had a variety of sweets and treats to keep all the guests happy, no matter what age.



And don’t even get me started on the CAKE!


Charity nailed this party in every way. Even her decorations were awesome – from the brown paper wrapped “Expedition Supplies” packages on the fireplace to the inflatable jungle animals – this is a party that will be hard to top.


She managed to pull off a very impressive birthday party with her own personal projects, all while taking care of two small children and we were happy and proud to be a part of it! Thank you Charity for choosing Peacock Printing for your party!

We also recently partnered with Chasity (what’s with the Cha-names lately??) who featured our invitations on her blog and wrote up a review of our products. See her review here for more information!

Capture every moment

Your wedding day is one of the best days of your life so it only makes sense that you would want to capture that day forever. That’s why hiring a good photographer is a crucial part of planning for your big day. Sure, you can spend thousands of dollars on a dress that you’ll wear once in your life or you can spend that money on memories that will last a lifetime. Not to mention, you won’t even be able to remember how you looked in that thousand dollar dress if you don’t have the photos to look at later on. And we’re not talking about paying your best friend who minored in photography in college to capture the most important day of your life; we’re talking about hiring a talented, professional photographer with a passion for what they do and the portfolio to prove it!

If you dedicate a good amount of your budget to hiring a good wedding photographer you will never regret giving up that “have-to-have-it” dress. As soon as you see those photos you’ll understand why a great photographer is so important. We’ve all heard those horror stories about bad wedding photography and I know you don’t want to be next on that list so invest in a professional photographer and I promise you won’t regret it! If they’re truly a great wedding photographer they’ll capture the most important moments without you even knowing they’re doing it! And there’s nothing better than looking through photos after the wedding to see the moments you missed.

Those moments that you missed during your wedding because you were busy having the time of your life, don’t worry about those, you can see them on an app thanks to your guests and their phones! Forget having to search Instagram to find hashtags from your wedding day because with apps like Wedding Party and WedPics they’re all right there for you in one group ready to view whenever you want. No bride or groom wants to wait weeks or months to see photos from their wedding day which is why they should use these apps, which let couples see their guests’ photos immediately.

Want an even better way to see photos from your wedding? Photo booths are a popular new way to get guests involved in the wedding photography and keep lasting memories from your special day! Give your guests some props and let them make a fool of themselves in your own personal photo booth so you can remind them of it years later when they forget all about it! Or let them figure that out themselves using an on-site printer to turn the photo booth photos into a memorable favor for your guests! Either way you get physical memories of your special day and the people you shared it with, which is truly priceless! Check out this DIY photo booth I found on pinterest!
