I’ve been dreaming about invitations lately. My first party love… beautiful invitations. They set the tone for the event. They get people excited.
Lately I’ve been terrible about invitations. I made up special, hand printed ones for my son’s 1st birthday and NEVER sent them out. For shame. Snail mail and I have not been getting along lately. I haven’t sent out the pile of thank you cards that I have written, my packages are going out late, and I am pretty sure my brother’s Christmas gift from last year is hiding in a closet somewhere.
My terrible recent track record with the mail aside… I have been seeing some amazing invitations lately. Just wanted to share some of the inspiration with you.
(I love sharing inspiration, but have not done so recently because I don’t like seeing other people’s work being pinned from my site. I like credit to go where credit is due. So, please… if inspired and want to pin just hit the link below the photo to go to the site it came from! Thanks so much!)
1. Check out these amazing coaster invitations from Ross Clodfelter Design featured on Design Work Life. How clever is that!? I love the idea that your future party (or wedding) guests can be reminded about your event every time they go to put their drink down. And, hello… so useful!
2. White foil on white with a pop of bright pink. I’m in love. Invite available via Digby Rose.
3. This invitation just screams, “PARTY!” to me. Love everything about it… especially that it is a DIY project featured on Style Me Pretty
4. And, what amazing invitation could be complete without an equally fabulous envelope. I am dying over the awesomeness of Lindsay Letters‘ envelopes. Check out that cute little bow tie under the T up there!
What is the most memorable invitation you have given or received? I’d love to read about it or see it! Either drop a description or link in the comments or post a picture on the Facebook wall.
