13 Unique Invitations

I love receiving unique invitations.  It almost doesn’t matter what the event is, be it a wedding, a dinner party or just lunch with friends.  Home entertaining in particular seems to be a dying “thing”.  I LOVE entertaining at home and when I finally get this new place put together a little more I am going to speed into major home entertaining!  When I am the hostess it is so much fun to get creative with my invitations so that as soon as the invitation is delivered, my guests know the theme or general idea of what to expect.  Here are 13 unique invitations that would get your guests excited about responding “YES” to attend!

  1. I agree, entertaining is a dying thing. I still entertain and pull out all the stops for my guests. I wish people would step up again and try it. Lovely invitations by the way.

  2. At home parties used to be the thing I hope they make a comeback. We use to hold large gatherings for every holiday when the kids were younger. We loved it but it wore us out! At home entertaining for us is much more scaled back and for now that’s ok. I love the terracotta pot and the box with the barbecue sauce. So often it seems that invitations don’t receive the credit they deserve for setting the tone of the party.

  3. I love the balloon and circus tent invitations and I remember your travel invite which I love. Sadly most people use email instead of sending actual invitations anymore. I miss a good old fashioned paper invitation!
