ONE-DERLAND … Invitations

All good parties start with a fancy invitation, wouldn’t you agree?

When Dominic and I were planning our wedding we I decided it was SUPER important to have fabulous invitations. I had this whole bridezilla philosophy of how the invitations set the tone for the entire ceremony/reception. Somehow I figured that bad invitations practically led to divorce. Invitations are important, but they aren’t that important. I mean, even if I text invited everyone to Jem’s party, I’m pretty sure she’d still turn 1 and be happy as a clam. Ha – like those little clams from Alice …


On to Jem’s invitations … I asked a dear friend with mad graphic arts skills to whip up something creative. After researching a number of ideas I landed on a tea bag shape with whimsical tea party wording and such. Rather than the bold Disney or the creepy Depp version of Alice in Wonderland we’re going for a sweeter, vintage look.

The text was created in Publisher, then trimmed to size. I worked backwards from the paper bag brown envelopes (Michael’s clearance – yay!) and ended up with about a 4×6 rectangle shape. Being the perfectionist that I am I struggled with cutting the two diagonals evenly. So much so that I called in the big guns – Dominic – to help figure out a plan to get even angles on both sides. After a few test runs we had success and I was on my way to invitation bliss.

I used crochet yarn for the string and for the tags we printed the little teacup on address labels so I could just sticker them together with the string in the middle. Clear tape adheres the string to the back.

That’s that. Sweet, simple, and ready to get our party on :)
