This is my first party, and so my first invitation. I'm going with a Victorian gothic theme, since that's mostly what I already have on hand to work with. I decided to base the invitations on actual funeral invitations we have from the turn of the century (old family ones that were passed to my daughter when she started doing our family tree). I created the design (four to a page) in word using a distressed font I downloaded, saved it as PDF and had them printed at Staples on ivory resume paper. I brought them home, cut them apart, and glued them to black card stock that was cut slightly larger. Then I filled in the details with a calligraphy pen. I'd seen some online that we're much more ornate and we're entirely printed, but I guess my family was poor, because ours looked like the one I made ?

We are having a pre-Halloween party for the friends who will come to give us a hand on Halloween and while perusing internet for ideas I saw a ouija-inspired invitation that I liked a lot. So, I based my cards off of that and then added a small box with a little bit of magic :)

This is one of the images I put together for the party:

I took a picture of the Frankenstein's Monster window cling, did some crazy tweaking with the orange lights around him, upped the saturation on both and voila.

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 :)

I love love love this background with the crows and everything. And the font was great.

Our Halloween party is mostly a movie and dinner party.... Watching both Saw 1 and Saw 2 movies... then going out the the show to watch the newest movie... so my invites were Saw Themed... I also made Movie Passes.... then I sent the invites in a evidence bag, along with some bloody fingers :) 2017-10-15 12.41.04.jpg 2017-10-15 12.18.54.jpg

Our Invitations this year. The D'Oscars (Dead Oscars) and the Black Carpet Gala afterparty held at Hotel Morrison.

Simple high gloss heavy cardstock and I hand made red textured envelopes these were10×10 . Key doubles as a bottle opener (I think that I creatively borrowed that idea from @bettyboop.

Hard too believe I am entertaining 130 bodies in 9 days and my barn still is a disaster. I only have the 4 massive chandeliers up.
