If you and I were friends in real life, you would know that every year we have an end of summer BBQ in my backyard, where family and friends gather together for what may be the first and last time of the season. You would know that there would be plenty of beer and wine to drink with an over bountiful table of food – and there would probably be something, somewhere on that table that your taste buds had never tried before.
We’d all find seats in my little yard under twinkling lights and chat about a variety of things, but you would know that when you get a group of nurses around there is no topic off limits!
We would stuff our stomachs full of food and then I’d bring out the desserts; pies, cookies, ice cream floats.
We’d chat until late in the evening, and I wouldn’t let you leave until I’d had my fare share of photographs with you.
– It’s coming again. Last year was our Blue Moon BBQ , this year our BBQ will be even better, and I want to show you updates with my party progress, starting with my invitations that I personalized.
You will need just a couple things to make them.
First of all, decide on a theme. Or browse around and find the perfect card and let that make the decision for you. I used some clip art and Picmonkey to create these simple invites with Chinese lanterns on them. Make sure you size them invites correctly.
Then save the pictures and print them onto heavy card stock. Then cut each one out and embellish. I made my lanterns stand out more with black ink, and – you guessed it – nail polish. Why not?
All it takes is a little time and creativity and you can save yourself a bunch of cash.
Stay tuned for more posts as I cover all my DIY’s leading up to the party on August 31st!
