i just thought i’d share with you some of the invites i’ve done over the years. its always fun to get new ideas on things you can do yourself to make parties more personal!
i know you already saw these, but here they are again!
these were from gracie’s 4th birthday last year – a mermaid and pirate theme. these bottles can actually ship in the mail as is.
this is the simple invite printed on scrapbook paper in a map print.
this is a menu from an appreciation luncheon i organized. all done on the computer on cardstock.
this was gracie’s second birthday invite. she had a bubble party. i printed on the cardstock, then traced the circles and hand cut them. this was before i knew about circle cutters – much faster! some of the bubbles are out of vellum, and some i painted with a bit of glue and added fine iridescent glitter. they were mailed in clear envelopes.
these were the invites my sister actually designed and made for my sister-in-law’s bridal shower. the silhouette is perfect – courtney is teeny and david is very tall. i especially love the tiny rhinestone as a diamond ring.
this was for a baby girl shower with lots of asian and cherry blossom touches.
this also was for a baby girl shower. this invite is just layered paper, with vellum on top, and a tiny green safety pin holding the top. great colors – raspberry, lime green and chocolate brown (all yummy food colors!).
this was from lily’s 2nd birthday. i printed the invite info on the back then cut out a pie shape for the hat, then added punched out dots with foam sticky squares under to give a little dimension. then i added an embroidery floss strap and mailed them in clear envelopes.
so i know i tend to go a bit overboard, but i love throwing parties! i feel like the invite sets the tone for the party and i like it to match the colors and decor, etc.
