Along with bills and letters, invites arrive pretty rarely in my dusty old letter box. It's possible I am just not being invited to all the parties of the season, but let's just pretend that this is not the case.
I love it when the kids get invitations where the kids have tried to do their best handwriting and written out all the names.
For work I have to whip up the words for many an invite and most of mine I admit to being pretty dull. There is a certain level of boring that comes with being professional.
Which is why I am just loving the invitation that I received this week.
It's bright orange, it's funny, it was delivered by the mail lady, it was unexpected.
I don't think I am even going to make it to the event, but the invite alone tells me it is going to be a really really good night.
It even came with a page of magnet words to play around with. The card is on fancy sparkly stock and the graphics are fabulous. Every word has been carefully considered.
It's a truly nifty piece of marketing. (Not all will understand my joy at such a thing)
I already seriously jealous knowing that people will be instagramming every fun detail and I will be home wiping the dishes.
Well done Buderim Ginger.
The right invite can really set the vibe for a function, party or event. This invite has given me some confidence to make my own work ones a bit more creative.
And speaking of invites, here is a not quite so exciting one for you...
I am speaking as part of a panel talking about health blogging. It's true, I am terrified of scary people and their questions, but I am doing it anyway. Come along if you want. Just click the not so exciting invitation which will take you to the bookings page, promise you will not be a scary question askerer.
Do you send invitations? Do you like to receive them?
Will you send me one? Are you going to the Ginger One? Will I meet you at the Health bloggers gig?
