Pre-wedding Garden Party stationery


Todays blog features some invitations I have made to a garden party I am hosting in May.

As I am mother of the groom rather than the bride I am playing a rather hands off approach to it on account of the fact that the brides parents want to take charge (lots of lip biting going on!) lol

So... to put my 'organising gene' to good use I decided to host a garden party 2 weeks prior to the big day for the actual wedding 'party'. I call it my pre-wedding 'wedding party' party... not easy to say when you've had a glass of wine on two! lol

I used an embossing folder from Couture Creations called 'Butterfly Hugs' and cropped it down to fit a 5" square card and matted it on teal CS as that is their accent colour for the big day and then added three crystals and a stamped 'invitation'.. such a simple card that anyone could do. I don;t often 'do' cards so it had to be simple!

I am having great fun making decorations for the party (please God let the sun shine) or all my paper decorations will be papier mache! Paper chains, tissue pom poms, jam jar candles-the list goes on. I'm having a great time. The table planner is next for the actual wedding.

While surfing the net for some ideas I came across these rather gorgeous free printable labels/tickets that are wedding themed. I thought I'd share them on here in case anyone can make good use of them too. I've printed a few off for the post wedding scrapbook album. Enjoy these here.
