The first impression that people get about a party is by the invitations. I wanted to have something that would really reflect the fun and adventure of the Wilderness Explorer party.
I went online and found a lot of great ideas but my favorite was a ticket.
I can't remember where I found it but I knew I had to use it for the invitations. I went through a couple of different incarnations of an invitation. First, I thought I would use the ticket like a postcard. Filling out the party information and having the recipient and the address on the back. I didn't really like it. I also made a plain invitation and thought about using the ticket as an insert that the girls would have to bring to the party and redeem for a prize. I didn't like that either and the chances of the girls remembering to bring it were slim. Finally, I came up with a card that incorporated the ticket on the front of the card.
I went to the AAA office and got 2 South America maps. I used one to cut up for the front of the invitations and I used the other for decoration at the party. Using white scrapbooking paper and the maps I made invitations that were 8" x 4" and fit into a standard business envelope. On the outside was the ticket and on the inside was more detailed party information. I just love these invitations. They came out so cute.
I also made sure we had themed Thank You notes as well.
I printed this out and again using scrapbook paper made note cards that were 3" x 5" and fit in standard invitation size envelopes.
