|My invitation to the annual neighborhood holiday tea.
It’s a tradition that every year the women in our neighborhood gather in early December for a holiday tea. This year it’s at my home and I’m very excited to host the party. I’m committed to making this tea a beautiful afternoon for my neighbors but keeping it economically sensible as well.
The invitations went out last week.
|The pieces for my holiday tea invitations:
I splurged on Crane & Co. paper which we printed at home,
we sealed the rolled invitations with a wax seal stamp in antique gold,
we tied them with waxed linen in natural,
and each invitation was finished with a sprig of boxwood from our garden.
|My whole family helped in the assembly process.
Stevie was in charge of making the wax seals.
The wax is heated in a glue gun, making the task very efficient.
|One hundred and thirty finished invitations ready for delivery.
|By hand delivering the invitations, I saved money on postage
and had a lovely walk on a Sunday afternoon.
