tiny details, huge results

No matter what age, time of year, venue, etc. I love to put as much detail into a birthday invitation as possible. I like to think that I have captured the look and mood of the party on paper for the guests to visualize. I have recently done two birthday party invitations for a one and three year old, who's parties were one week apart and had the same petting zoo theme. However, these invitations couldn't look more different from one another - it would be hard to hold them next to one another and know that they are both petting zoo parties. Between the style of design, colors, fonts, etc. these two birthday parties, both alike in theme, are complete opposites on paper. That's what I love about custom designs. Capturing the tiny details that make a huge difference for each event!


Baptisms are such a special time for sweet babies and families. Let Rice Designs create a one-of-kind baptism invitation that reflects your baby's personality and special occasion. Invitations can always be kept as a keepsake in a baby's book or album and paired with photos for memories to last a lifetime.
