I have always loved parties, you could call me a party animal.  I love attending or planning a good party.  To me it is all about the theme, if you can pin down the theme then it will all fall into place.  Once it’s decided, go for ‘that perfect invitation’, as that is your guest’s first impression on what they are invited to.  For me if I get an invite that is stunning, then I know the party will follow, but if I get an invitation that is so-so then you can almost expect a so-so party.

It is so easy to find great invitations with Etsy.  All of these were bought on Etsy.  Simply go to their site, and search under ‘handmade’ and start with your subject + invitation.  Some you print yourself, which are way cheaper and others are made to order and shipped to you, so consider your time frame and make sure you can get your invitation out in enough time for your guests.

Here are just a few of the invitations that we’ve sent out for our parties!


How fun is this invitation to my 70’s disco party!!


Boys only party invitations! $10 for dyi

Add some theme details to the outside of the invitation too.

I printed this one myself and used craft scissors and added theme stickers.

John’s Robot cake!  Super easy~ body & head is sheet cake and I used rice krispies for the rest with colorful candy to add details.

I love to use stickers as they are so beautiful now.  I mix them with my own printed details.

Don’t be afraid to ‘go all out’~ such memory makers!

I didn’t have time to make a Cat theme cake, so I bought one and used an extra invitation as decoration.  These were ordered from Etsy, shop called Nelson 55.
