I shared the theme of my son’s first birthday party theme, backyard BBQ, the other day. My first step was finding some cute fonts, clip art and a Cricut cartridge to help with the decorations. I already found the perfect Cricut cartridge, Block Party. I also searched Etsy and found this shop, DigitalBake Shop where I found some adorable clip art (used below).

My next step was finding some fonts. This was a little more difficult and while these give off a more western feel, I think they would still be perfect for a BBQ theme!

Not sure how to download your own fonts and save them to your computer? Check out my step by step tutorial here!

** Please keep in mind that even if a font is free, it doesn’t mean you have permission to use it in a commercial setting. Fonts generally state whether they are free, free for personal use, or free for commercial use. In some cases, the artist requires a commercial license or donation made to them in order to use it in a commercial setting. I always make sure to save the “read me” files along with the font where it usually states what you have permission for. I also keep a spreadsheet so I can keep track of all the fonts I have downloaded. This helps me separate those I can use for prints in my Etsy shop and those I can only use for prints in our home.
