The brief for these invites was ‘art deco, balloons and sausage dogs’, which isn’t a combination request that I receive every day, but they are three of Louise’s (the birthday lady) favourite things – especially sausage dogs – or more importantly, her sausage dog, Alfie (aka Sir Alfred Moon).
Picasso’s famous drawing of his own much loved pet ‘Lump’ formed the beginning of the sausage dog part – with the addition of a top hat that only the smartest pooch about town can wear, of course. Balloons feature in a typically art deco inspired geometric pattern, as no kitsch-y string is welcome here.
I’m happy to say that Louise was delighted with these, as were those she invited, sorry, Sir Alfred Moon invited. It’s going to be quite a do, I reckon!
