One of our most primal instincts is that to eat. Hunger is something we simply cannot deny. It's so deeply rooted in the human race that it has become what we turn in most any situation. We're happy and want to celebrate?...we eat. We're upset and feeling low?...we eat. We're bored, anxious, stressed, etc.?...what do we do?
Using this knowledge you can be a better hostess for any function. Wedding, funeral, cocktail party, child's birthday and the list goes on. The one thing they all have in common is that if you want people to come to them, you've got to offer something to eat!
Today we're going to be talking about MY child's birthday:) Leo turned 3 years old on Saturday and next Saturday, when all his friends and family can be in town, we're having a Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory birthday party! You'll hear much more about the preparations, cake and party throughout the week, but today we're focusing on the invitation.
If promising food at the party brings a smile to your guests faces, then don't you think offering something tasty in the invitations would be even better? Well, I thought so;)
The guests we invited to Leo's party received a small package instead of a regular invite or email last week. I labeled each envelope 'Wonka' to entice them and inside was a genuine 'Wonka bar' with a special Leo's Birthday label. The best part was a Golden Ticket Invitation with all the right information to get our guests to the party. I got calls from everyone when they arrived and they were already excited to see the rest! It's the details that make things special;)
All you need:
-candy bar of choice, label removed
-paper cut into label size w/new 'fake' label drawn or printed on it
-gold paper w/party info on it. here's what ours said;
