I know you've heard me talk about having "A Lemonade Party" at my house for some time now. The whole purpose of this little party was to gather a few young moms together from our church and give them an opportunity to spend some quality time with other ladies without the kids. So, the party is this coming Sat. on my front porch! I am so excited about the lemonade party. I sent our post card invitations in March to let the ladies know AHEAD of time about the party so #1 they could mark their calendar (we are busy ladies) and #2, get a baby sitter. The 3rd week in April I gave them their official invitations. My little homemade invitations turned out cute and wanted to share with them with you.
I purchased some simple brown bags with handles. On the computer I made the name tags for each guest and glued to the front of the bag and then glued a ribbon on the front.
On the back of each bag I made another tag with lemons on it with "When Life Hands You Lemons Make Lemonade" and the the words Phil: 4:11 which says, "For I have learned in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content."
Which to me personally says, "Take the obstacles in your life and turn then into opportunites.
I made the invitations on the computer. On the front highlights the date, time and etc and on the back I gave directions to the Lemonade party on the porch! Also made a small brochure with all kinds of uses for lemons. Added a lemonade recipe to the front as well.
On the inside of the bag went the following: A recipe for lemon blueberry muffins and photo from friend blogger Sharyl. Check out the recipe at http://thelittlebrownhouse.us/2010/03/15/tasty-tuesday-lemon-blueberry-muffins/
Lemon cookie, Lemon heads, Lemonade, Tea bag, and the brochure with all the uses for lemons.
They turned out so cute and the ladies seem to really enjoy their personalized invitation. I've got 13 ladies coming to the party on Saturday. It should be fun.
And yes, you are in for lots of pictures to look at.
