For my mother’s 60th she’s asked my sister and I to host a tea party for her and her 12 (yes 12!) sisters and sister-in-laws. With summer being hectic, we decided to send some save the dates so there would be plenty of time for the ladies to plan their summers around my mom. She’s a special lady!
Mom asked for the party to be “whimsical”- which to me means glitter and vintage colors.
Each invite came in a black envelope lined with sheet music which came from a music book I bought at Goodwill a few months back for just the occasion; a well-spent $.99! To line the envelopes, I traced the opened envelope and trimmed to fit inside the envelopes, then used a glue pen to secure.
The save-the-dates came paired with a gold painted and glittered clothes pin magnet to make posting to the fridge or kitchen calendar a breeze.
The glittered clothespins were so easy to make- I used vintage gold paint, elmers glue, glitter, and trimmed magnet with adhesive backing,
I liked them so much I made a set for my fridge at home!
