The Holidays Are Here


It’s that time of year again, the holiday season is upon us. It is hard to believe Thanksgiving is next week! Where has 2017 gone? Winston is getting ready for Christmas too! The other day, he was carrying around his Santa Claus ;)

Trey and I received our first Christmas party invitation in the mail this week and it hit me just how close December is. It will be here before we know it. December is always such a fun and crazy busy month full of family gatherings and holiday parties.  

We threw the biggest party of our lives in July and therefore, we decided to pass on hosting any holiday dinners, parties, etc. this year. However, as you may or may not know, I love all things paper! From gift wrapping supplies to books, stationery, and invitations; paper products give me the googly eyes. So, when stationery companies reveal their new Christmas card and holiday party invitation designs each year, I get real excited, embarrassingly so.    

Sending invitations in the mail gives parties an extra special touch! At our house, invitations always end up on the fridge, which in turn, serve as little reminders about the events.

Today, I am sharing some of my favorite designs from Basic Invite with you. These designs are perfect for a holiday work party invitation or a Christmas cocktail party invitation.
