Last Minute Fall & Halloween Invites

Last minute Fall and Halloween invitations are on sale at 10% off! You've got just enough time to send out your invites for your killer Halloween party or to plan ahead for Thanksgiving. Ready to get into party mode? Me too! I'm still cracking away at my Halloween costume for this year. What are you going to be? Tweet me and let me know!

Having a Halloween party without costumes is impossible. If you are hosting a Halloween party then you are expecting at least some of your guests to show up in costume, and as the host they are expecting you to take the lead. Help your guests out by giving them a theme to work with, or some costume ideas. You can go retro, futuristic, movie themed, or anything else that strikes your fancy.

Ghost CoupleThe most important part of a costume party is immersion in the theme, especially for adult parties. If your guests feel like they are stepping into a little world of Halloween, the costumes they come in will feel fun instead of forced. The more elaborate the costume the better, so be sure that you have yourself dressed up without taking short cuts. That does not mean that you need to spend a fortune on your costume. Chances are you or someone in your household has enough make-up to avoid spending excess on overpriced Halloween face paint kits. You can also create brilliant colored creams by crushing up eye shadow and mixing it with a little lotion or petroleum jelly (like Vaseline). Or, mix a little with eye shadow into some lip gloss or balm if you plan on using it on your lips.

Don't be afraid to make alterations to old clothes to get a desired effect. Cutting up an old t-shirt to create a bandana, armband, or waist wrap. The more layers and details you can add, the better your costume will appear. Halloween costumes are all about fun and creativity, not the amount of money you spend!

Halloween Candy Buffet InvitationAnother thing that I am an absolute sucker for is gingerbread houses. Don't laugh—I would make one for every holiday if I could! One of the major reasons that kids love Halloween so much is the candy loot they get from trick-or-treating. As they are jumping in sugar-overloaded joy, you are probably cringing on the after effects of eating so much sugar—everything from the mood swings to the tooth aches. The real question is, how can you put that candy to good, fun use without being eaten and have the kids agree willingly? You already know where I'm going with this!

Encourage your kids to keep a few pieces of their favorites, and use the rest to make haunted candy houses, ghoul statuettes, or their very own nightmare creations! Who says that gingerbread houses are restricted to Christmas? If Jack Skellington can take over Christmas Town, then your kids can too. You can even host a Halloween party where you provide some well-selected candies for just the occasions. Be sure to have a variety of colors, a bit of frosting or marshmallow cream for glue, and some interesting sizes. The more candy involved, the more elaborate the result!

It's All in the Details

As promised, we have been busy, busy bees at Impress In Print in preparing all kinds of new invitations for you to take a look at. Our Halloween section is bubbling with new designs; our baby section is impregnated with the new and precious; fall and Thanksgiving are a bounty of colors; and our new holiday invites are jingling just around the corner. There are so many new products to look at that picking a few favorites to share with you was a major, major task. Nevertheless, I have picked three of my tops for this week to spread the love!

 

Each card is full of tiny details that make the overall effect a bit magical. You can see the time spent, the incredibly artistic eye, and the genuine affection in each design. They are fun without being immature, modern without being overly simplistic, and have a strong concept of shape and form. The sample text coordinates so perfectly that you barely realize the extra design and style added from the text alone. If you're looking for top quality, these three would definitely fit the bill.

 

Fiesta Duo InvitationFiesta Duo Invitation

This card is a redesign of Inviting Co.'s extremely popular Fiesta Couple invitation. While the old design is still really adorable, this new design has already got me wanting to plan a fiesta. The couple is completely decked out from head to toe, and a colorful Mexican banner flutters in the background. I particularly love the detail on her shoes! Really, it's the little details of this card that make it such a fabulous design.

Autumn Squares Invitation Autumn Squares Invitation

This fall pick is definitely one of my favs because of the mix of designs. It combines modern squares and text design with more traditional image-based design. At one look, this invite appears both busy and simplistic. It also brings out fall without being too specific, which means it would work great for Thanksgiving, a fall party, a harvest festival, or even as a seasonal greeting.

Bird Tree Egg Boy Twins InvitationBird Tree Egg Boy Twins Invitation

I love this card from Noteworthy Collections because of its options. You can get it for a boy, girl, twin boys, twin girls, or boy and girl twins. What's more, you can use it as a shower invitation or as birth announcements. I am a huge fan of versatility. I like to see a card that can work perfectly for several different options, because it reminds me of how different yet similar all of our lives can be.

Have you used one of these invitations before? Let me know what you used it for and what you thought of it!

Noteworthy Collections has released their latest line of Fall and Thanksgiving invitations. They are stylish, graceful, and rich with autumn themes. Many of these new designs make the perfect selection for autumn wedding invitations. The designs focus on leaves and swirls, like the brisk fall winds that mark the changing season.  Some of the invitations draw on the deep chocolates and burnt oranges that dominate the fall.  Others pull the light from the season, starting with soft ivories and mixing in hints of fall.  Other still are great for Fall Festivals or Thanksgiving Dinner with bright wheat and harvest colors. These have delightful designs showing your fall favorites, such as candied apples, pumkins and squash, bushels of wheat, and cornucopias.

Celebrate & Give Thanks

Fall is a season that always inspires me. It breathes life into my decorations, into my artwork, and into my actions.  That may sound a bit ironic, considering that fall is a time during which most life fades, dies, or becomes dormant. To me, I see the colors and the chill wind as a sign of change and can’t help but reflect that change into my daily life.
 
After the fun of Halloween has passed and before the craze of the Christmas holiday begins, there is an in between moment of autumn that I think we all can enjoy. The air that you breathe in is crisp. The world around you has changed into a magnificent spectacle. Perhaps most importantly, people prepare for their Thanksgiving feasts.
 
The magic of the season, very different from the sparkles of Santa Claus or the haunts of Jack Nightmare, is the generosity that fall automatically inspires. Turkeys are donated, canned good drives begin, and people begin to share what they have simply because they can. It is the spirit of Thanksgiving that moves me to action, as well as it does for many others. As we prepare for another year of turkey, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, and stuffing I hope that you also have the opportunity to appreciate the things in life that inspire you.
