my little lily is about to turn 4 (*sniff*), and has had her heart set on having a “fancy nancy” party for nearly a year. then when her sister had a pink party, lily changed her mind and then wanted a “fancy nancy pink party”. only she still doesn’t say her r’s and says, “pouty” instead of party. so cute.
so for the invites i went gaudy: glitter paper, iridescent paper and rhinestones. i really wanted to add some tacky lace around the edge, but the cost was already getting up there, so i opted out. i also planned on using that purple glitter spray up there, but it didn’t work out either. i’m sure i’ll find somewhere to use it at the party, though.
because i made the invites myself and didn’t pay any attention to the finished size of them, i didn’t have envelopes to fit them, nor did i want to search around town or order ones to fit. so i decided to make them myself. how hard can it be? just before i made my first attempt at the envelopes i stumbled upon amy at angry chicken. she did a little video tutorial on making envelopes from a magazine page. perfect! check out her video, or use my tutorial for making envelopes from wrapping paper (left over from this shower).
in a couple weeks i’ll have some very gaudy, over-the-top, ultra girly party ideas for you…
