Here are 2 from the Witches Luncheon out of the 4 I have done so far ... the first one was a Martha Stewart invite ... the box with the finger with the ribbon around it. The second was one that I had totally copied from the Halloween forum ... it was for a Haunted Hotel/ Murder Mystery ... It had a brochure, a letter of confirmation, character sheet for murder mystery and a key for your hotel room. Here is the Enchanted Forest Invite and the Witches Ball Invite.

Finally finished my first batch tonight ! I've done these in segments, these are the first ones that are totally complete!! I got this idea from Pinterest, which I believe I later found the original post on this site (maybe even earlier on this same post?? Can't recall 100%) the paper is velum, so it's slightly transparent which I found after pouring after so many paper ideas as I was trying to find something unique . The invite goes in coffin, coffin w coffin lid go into the box with tombstone and dirt, all wrapped up with a bow !! :) I think I really over did it from a budget standpoint, but I'm a firm Believer in statement invitations- I really think it gets people excited and interested !!

Well I finally completed my invites and delivered them. This year’s theme I wanted to mix it up a bit with Voodoo and Mardi Gras. I got all my materials at the Dollar Store. Book boxes, feathers, moss, black tissue paper, silver craft paint, foam letters and foam boards...Each book cover has the last name of each couple invited, when they open it they have their photo of last year’s Halloween party if they attended or I just found another photo of the couple and aged the photo if they weren’t able to attend. I made the Voodoo dolls and a postcard size invite was printed and also inserted under the Voodoo doll.
I decorated the book with the lettering and added corners...to make it look a little old. Did the Papier-mâché. My husband spray painted it gloss black then I dry brushed silver, followed by decorating it with pieces of burlap, moss, feather, spiders...

My invitations are on the plain side this year. Simple black canvas bags with the invitation booklet and rock. Our theme is a twist on THE GREAT PUMPKIN.

Can anyone reccomend a free site for creating modern, digital invites that don't look tacky? OR an Etsy Shop that would create a relatively cheap digital print for me? I just need an image that looks modern, scary and pops a bit. Any ideas would be great! I invite exclusively through facebook events if that helps.

Oh, and while we're at it if anyone knows of a good site for creating slide shows with your own music that I can create to share with my guests with pics from parties past that would be great!

I'm not sure with the invite but for the slide show I use Flipagram.

I could only find one past invitation, from 2014's Vampire Dinner Party but I've added this year's Evil Garden party. We don't tell our guests what each years theme will be, but our invitations tend to give clues...
Oh and I left in our street name, because I just had to share how creepy it is! YAY! :D

ETA: What I lacked in this year's invite (graphic-wise) I made up for with the poem I created. I was rather chuffed at that :)

Ours from 2012:

Borrowed the basic idea from a blog entry (The Bloggess http://thebloggess.com/2012/08/probably-the-best-pr-team-ever/






The outer crate is a paper box from Michaels, plus the little wooden coffins and skelly garland also from Michaels. The shovels came from a seller on ebay. Added moss and Dept 56 tombstones.
This just blows my mind! Amazing work!

Clearly we need to up our invitations into something other than just printed card stock!

This thread has given me so many great ideas for 2017 :D

The Save the Dates for this year's party are printed and trimmed. All that's left now are to antique the envelopes, print addresses, and stick 'em in the mail. I think this year we're going to tone down the specific theming aspect and go with classic halloween stuff -- skellies, creepy stuff, bats, spiders, etc. 2017 Halloween Save the Date2-sm.jpg

My husband and I threw our first Halloween party last year, and it was fun and quite successful.
This year I wanted to kick it up a notch and decided to hand make invites this year. Got the idea from Pinterest but put my own twists on it.
