Pirate parties are my absolute fave! I’ve styled my own a few times in the past couple of years and always find them the most fun (maybe it’s because I like to watch Hook the whole time?)…Haha…I’m so I’m thrilled to share this submission from AMBER HOUSLEY (Amber designed my wedding paper goods). This adorable party was for her son’s 4th birthday! AMBER is uber creative so she made all the food labels and paper goodies in addition to styling up the party! Look for the pirate party post to come up soon, but first is the clever invitation!
I love the idea of an invitation box – especially if you’re only inviting a small group of friends + family. Invitations truly set the mood to the party and gets everyone excited about what’s to come.
The Invitation Box
The invitation box featured a message in a bottle containing a pirate map announcing the birthday party. In the mailing box it was accompanied by a wood-grain pocketfold that was closed by a pirate patch. Inside the pocketfold was the main invitation design and pocket for a bag full of coins. How clever? I now want to do an invitation box for every event!
Ahoy, Mateys! Be sure to check back later for Part 2: The Pirate Party for all the fabulous details from this cute birthday party! You won’t want to miss it!
Do you love the “box” idea? Do you have any parties coming up where you’d like to do a invitation box?
