16th Annual Girlfriend Party ~ Invitations


My favorite tradition to ring in the holidays is my annual Favorite Things party
with 10 of my girlfriends. This is our 16th year, most of us met when our kiddos
were in preschool and this year several of them are college freshman!  
(Thankfully, mine is still home for another year!)
I love delivering a fun invitation to their mailboxes to set the tone, and get everyone
 anticipating the upcoming season. 

"Time for my FLOCK to get FESTIVE"
   

These sweet gold sequined bird ornaments were the inspiration for my theme:
"Time for my FLOCK to get FESTIVE."
I embellished them a few extra feathers. The gold polka dot envelopes and enclosure
cards were perfect tied on the package as the invitation. The party details are printed
 on the back of the card. I found everything at Hobby Lobby.

  


I used cellophane bags tied with gold cord and tucked in a sprig of boxwood
from our yard.


Here are previous years' invitations if you'd like to check them out and read
 more about the format of our party:

I'll be sure to share all the details after our party on December 6th.
