This year we will be doing a Victorian Gothic themed party. I am looking for some super creative invitation ideas. My guests like getting "presents" in the mail and I do about 50 to 70 invites per year. HELP!

I'm doing a gothic theme too! I was thinking of using a gothic font on red paper. It will be interesting to see what ideas people post.

When I think Victorian Gothic, I immediately think of those old posed pictures from the era - the ones that are posed and no one looks particularly happy. I find them perfect for sneaking into party decor for this type of theme. I'm wondering if you can work it into your invitation somehow... one year I got a number of old mirrors and shaved off some of the back and put the pictures behind, so they looked like regular mirrors, but when you looked in it, you saw your own reflection as well as the "ghost" in the mirror. I'm wondering if you could do something like that for your invitation... is that the sort of vibe you're going for?

Fallenone - check out CemeteryGirl's invitations on the thread for Halloween party help for a novice. I don't know if that's what you had in mind, but I may have to copy her!

Great ideas, especially the mirror! I was able to locate some really cool pictures at Michaels. They will fit in great! I will be checking out CemeteryGirl right now :)
