Miss Party has finally gotten around to photographing her Halloween invites for this year’s party and just wanted to throw them up this afternoon to inspire you! The Halloween party’s sub-theme this year is ‘Grimm and Wicked Fairy Tales’. Take a look at the menu for tons more Halloween invitation ideas, Halloween decorating ideas (for inside and out) and party ideas for all ages.
So, the components of each invitation are as follows: 1) a medium gray card is backed and matted by an A7 darkish primary blue card (the finished piece is 5 1/2″x 8 1/2″); 2) the gray card is printed with the party details in black in a couple of spooky fonts; 3) creepy ‘Black Forest’ silhouette tree branches are cut from black card stock and wrap around the assembled card (remember those freaky apple trees in the Wizard of Oz?…Nightmare City!); 4) black A9 envelopes have white ink pen for the addresses, and 5) a 3D blood drop ‘seals’ each envelope.
Of course, the silhouette tree branches are the highlight of the invitation and have been given the royal Burton-esque treatment with the ever-stylish spiral shapes. Miss Party is crazy for black silhouettes of just about anything and is loving how these branches actually move. They really add another dimension to the invitation and Miss Party has to suppress a small squeal of delight at how the recipient has to interact with them to reveal the party information.
Gotta run…Busy, busy, busy!
