Invitations

Invitations are so important! It’s how you tell people how great your party is going to be. Here are some of our favorite invitation inspiration.

Rainbow Baby Shower

Look at the pretty baby shower some of my friends threw. It has all my favorite things: water colored invitations, rainbows, balloons, little flags, and even a rainbow layered cake (inside). They asked everyone to bring a ribbon for the little baby girl, such a cute idea. Beautiful job Kelly and Brooke!




Bird & Banner

I have such admiration for Bird and Banner, I love their work and I love their invitations in the new Martha Stewart Destinations. Just brilliant.

Rifle Halloween

I think the new invites and Halloween cards over at Rifle are so perfect. Sometimes you forget how easy it is to buy invitations with blanks you just have to fill in, especially if they are as adorable as these.

Invites and Colorful Chairs

A few party/wedding details I’ve noticed and liked from last week:

These printed Muslin bags from Nicholas & Danni with the story of how they met are clever and sweet, it would be a fun idea to use for any announcement.

I love the fun, colorful, confetti colored chairs and pretty picnic blankets from this wedding. They were so smart to leave the rest of the decorations pretty simple, letting the bright chairs really stand out.

Balloon Invitations

Love this helium balloon invitation from On Hand Modern. She says the helium didn’t stay in the water balloon for more than a few minutes but I think if you used these tiny balloons it might work–they last a couple hours. Long enough to deliver the invitation and get the right effect. I love this idea so much I wish I’d thought of it.

[A tip: use very thin thread when working with small balloons since even a normal sized string weighs them down.]
