Halloween Invitations

I'm usually really bad at posting this kind of stuff and it's one of the things I'm working on.  I'm planning a Halloween dinner party this year and I'd love to share my planning and how it all turns out.

First up invitations. is my go to source for all of my DIY invitations.  Their paper and color choices are impeccable.  I can't find anything like that local here and even though they are a little pricey I seem to give in with every event, I just love them.

Halloween Invitations

I went with a smaller A2 note card and envelope, for the Oscar party I go a little bigger because I want them to look more substantial.  The poppy color is so beautiful.  I almost went all black, I'm so glad I didn't. 

And here's how my invitations turned out.  I typed them up in word and added bat clip art and a little florish, it took way longer than it looks like it did. I removed all our personal information for this demonstration, that's why it looks weird.  I printed them on white card stock and cut them just smaller than the note card so you see a black border, attached them with a glue stick.  Then I stamped the envelope with my new bat stamp (we're going with a bat theme this year).
