unique christmas party invitations

If you've been reading for awhile you know one of my favorite traditions to
 kick off the Christmas season is my annual girlfriend party with ten friends, most of
 us met when our kiddos were in pre-school and this is our 14th Annual Party! As part
 of the tradition I come up with a creative invitation that I leave in their mailbox, and
 today I'll be dropping off these...

~ It's beginning to look a lot like cocktails... ~



This is the front, I included the pertinent details on the back. 
I loved that the back of the notecards look the same as the front with no text. 


They were super easy to put together, and if you're not able to drop off invites,
a flat paper martini glass would be fun. 

Martini Glass - Dollar Tree - $1ea.
8 Gold & White Notecards - Target - $1
Gold Berry Branches - Michaels - $2
Green & Leopard Ribbon - Michaels
 (last year after Christmas sale, but I saw it this year)

I punched two holes in the notecard for the ribbon, wound the berries around the stem
 of the glass and tucked in an evergreen sprig from our yard. The berries came in a longer
piece, I just took it apart to create 6" pieces. I added a drop of hot glue to the edge of the 
glass to keep the invite upright.  

You can check out the details of my previous invites and our gift giving game 
here and here.

AND

I'm so excited to announce that I'll be joining these lovely ladies again this year
for The 12 Days of Christmas Tour of Homes starting in two short weeks!!
We  hope you'll join in the fun and link up your holiday home on December 16th!
