A Halloween Invitation from The Order of the Phoenix

I don’t know if you guys noticed, but our “quote of the week” has had a theme recently. Our theme for the month of October, and for our Halloween party, is none other than Harry Potter.  We have wanted to throw a Harry Potter party for many years and have been entirely too excited to finally start decorating and planning for one.  For the invitations, we originally had all these crazy schemes in our head (boxes with potions and wands!  envelope that a balloon with a dark mark magically floats out of!) but we finally decided to be reasonable people and do a good old stationery suite.  I designed the invitation itself with all the Harry Potter fonts I could find (if you’re wondering what the border is, it says THE DARK LORD HAS RISEN on repeat).  After printing on card stock, we dipped them in tea to make them look a little bit vintage.  Unfortunately, I can take no credit for the ridiculously fantastic Marauder’s Map.  I found it here.  After we were patting ourselves on the back for printing out all the invitations, we realized that our names were nowhere to be found on them.  That is what happens when rookies are doing the designing.  I mean, people would probably know it was us (because who else would send them something so crazy), but on principle we should probably have our names.  So we decided to make little RSVP cards out of feathers.  For finishing touches, we wrapped them in a thin black ribbon and sealed with a very authentic Hogwarts wax seal.

    I’ve actually asked my husband if I can fly down…He gave me this look like I’d lost it.
    These are just beyond words! So creative and beautifully done. They show the true spirit of magic that the HP series inspires.

    The best invite I’ve ever received! Honestly… even JOHN LOVED IT… He’s a Harry Potter freak though. 😉 The wax seal was AMAZING… the entire invite, the font, the paper, the ribbon, EVERYTHING was just awesome! This is going to be one heck of a throw down! 😉 Love you ladies!
