Bridal Shower Invites

I'm very excited about the Bridal Shower I'm throwing my best friend this Sunday. She wants everything to be a surprise so I can't spill on the details or theme just yet, but let's just say it's going to be awesome! Since she's already received the invitation, I can finally post them on here. Take a look...

I'll have pictures of the invite in it's entirety (as well as the party) next week, but I wanted to give you a little sneak peak.

After spending months trying to decided on how I wanted them to look (and buying supplies to create everything myself) I found this wedding invitation sweet at Target (heart not included). Perfect! I purchased 25 invites for $20 and then designed the actual invitation on my computer using Publisher. The fonts I was envisioning were nowhere to be found in Microsoft Office, so I went over to fonts101.com (such a great site), perused through their very extensive library, and downloaded all the ones I wanted for free. Yay- free!

I purchased the glitter hearts at Pier 1. They are originally meant to be gift tags, but I placed a heart for each person invited to the shower inside the invite. The back of the hearts read, "(Name) Please bring your "heart" for a chance to win the raffle.

The invites were then placed inside the envelope, which I sealed off with big gold stickers (the kind put on award certificates when you're young).

Like I said, I'll have more and better pictures for you next week, but I wanted to at least give you a sneak peak of what I've been working on :)
