You are cordially invited to…We request your presence…You’re invited…There are so many ways to invite guests to a dinner party. The wording can be very formal like for an evening wedding or it can be simple and to the point-just the type of wording I needed for my Thanksgiving dinner invitations. I wasn’t planning on sending out invites since its only for immediate family and my in-laws but I thought since it is the first holiday dinner Judd and I are hosting why not! I love looking at different types of invitations and it’s always nice to be on the receiving end of one.
I looked at Etsy shops for inspiration while shopping for invitations but decided since they would only be sent out to family I didn’t have to go above and beyond when looking. One day while browsing the stationary section at Target I came across these adorable card stock invitations. They were simple yet elegant in design. The typography was the first detail I notice and right away I was drawn to them. I picked them up immediately not even giving the other invitations displayed a chance. I made my decision and I was ecstatic!
When I got home I wrote out the details on each invitation and addressed the envelopes. One thing I wish I would’ve done is hand lettering for the addresses. I have always wanted to learn how to hand letter and try calligraphy. Maybe before next year’s holiday dinners I can teach myself or take a class in it to make my invitations more artistic and unique. (If any bloggers/readers out there do it or offer a class I am totally interested!)
I could not be more excited for our first holiday dinner hosting. My family constantly inspired me growing up to host memorable holiday dinners. Every detail was thought out. Every meal was perfected. Being able to start a new family tradition with my husband and both of our parents means so much to me! Stay tuned in the next few weeks as I continue to share more details for our Italian Thanksgiving.
