Wow, a very big thanks for all the comments, tweets, posts + emails about Ike's party. I'm overwhelmed by the really kind feedback -- we loved putting it together + so glad you like it too!
I've gotten a bunch of emails about Ike's party so I thought I'd do a few follow-up posts about the details. I was all about making simple, practical and fun things for the kids to enjoy. One of my favorite things were the favors ...
Custom wood handled rubber stamps! When giving favors I always like to give something you can eat :) or actually use. For these, I got one made for each child, stamped their name on a cotton bag and paired it with a little ink pad. Super easy.
I use Ike's all the time and it seems the other parents appreciated it too. The font I used for the name is Jessica Hische's Buttermilk. Love this font and pretty much used it on everything.
EDIT: Forgot to mention where I got the stamps! I got these made here - fairly quick service, great quality and reasonable prices. Ask for Bob if you have questions.
