So in the spirit of the resort I'm staying at Beaches...this week will be beach week. My favortie seasons are summer and fall. I love a good tropical party anytime though. Here are some cool flip flop invites...remember mine here? I'm am not a fan of fill in the blank invitations however I do like these beach ball invites from Oriental Trading. I have used these for a beach theme party and my entire decor was using beach balls in all sorts of creative ways. No, I don't have pictures....don't ask...it's a long story but basically lost boxes which contained hundreds of photos in a military move.
I hung up beach balls everywhere using fishing wire and attached onto the blowup valve. This picture is actually lamps but you get the idea!
For Madison's Luau first birthday, I also used Oriental Trading plastic bottles and put in it my own colored sand, drink parasol, luau confetti and a photograph invite with Madison in a grass skirt. I still have an invite but it's at home and I'M IN THE TURKS & CAICOS ISLANDS...did I mention that?? The below picture I found on Flickr but just wanted to show the invite in the bottle concept. I mailed the plastic bottle as is....no need for a box! People loved them!
