Bridal Shower Tea Party: Invitaions

Here are the invitations I made for Leslie's bridal shower tea party:

With each invitation, I inserted a recipe card and note asking each guest to please write down their favorite recipe for Leslie in order to help her out in her new role as wifey.

I found this giant carton of note cards at Target. Score!

I wanted a Victorian feel (since these are invites for a tea party) and I wanted to bring in purple (Leslie's wedding color). I found scrapbook paper at Hobby Lobby with a motif of purple pressed flowers and cursive lettering. Victorians loved pressed flower and cursive. Score!

I used the scrapbook paper to create a border at the top of the invitations, and I created the lacy trim with a fun hole punch. (Victorians also liked lace.)

After I hole punched the lacy trim into my border, I was left with skinny pieces of paper with scalloped edges.  I used these left over pieces to decorate the recipe cards so that they would match the invitations and remind Leslie of her shower each time she cooked something from one of the cards.

I used a paper cutter to create border pieces that would neatly fit at the top of each note card, and I glued them on with Elmer's because that's all I had.

Then I punched two holes in the center of the border to tie ribbon through. I created the bow by first threading the ribbon through the front of the card. Then I criss crossed both ends of the ribbon at the back of the card and threaded the ends back through to the front.


I received help with the wording from Unique Bridal Shower Ideas.  

I love how the recipe request cards turned out.  I found the Victorian border at Free Vintage Clip Art and I found the cute poem at Unique Bridal Shower Ideas.

A motivating discussion is worth comment. I think that you need to write more on this topic, it
may not be a taboo subject but generally folks don't discuss such issues.
To the next! Many thanks!!

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be
actually something that I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

Instead of being able to make a woman lust after them,
they are the ones that are drooling over women. Seducing a woman is NOT the time to shy away or to try and play it too safe.
See, when she DOES see you as the alpha male, then she has a natural inclination to
want to be with you.

As a woman, know and understand your form to be able to
get proper plus size underwear for women. Pairing up plus dimension underwear with a plus size
bustier will work effectively in giving you a sexier form.
Plus measurement girls need not take care of no

do purchasing on-line for his or her plus measurement underwear.
