Happy December! It's that crazy time of year again! I've started adding crushed candy canes to my morning coffee :)

Instead of our regular DIY, this month we have free printable holiday party invites. A big thanks to the Friends of the Library for inviting me to speak at their "Entertaining for the Holidays" Event. These are the three holiday themes I presented on, and the free printable invites, as promised :). 
The first theme is a super simple way to make your table setting and invites festive and fun. Simply use washi tape.
To create this invite, just print out the invite on 5x7 white cardstock, stick washi tape pieces on the bottom and draw flames on the top of them for candles. To view and print, click HERE. (to print 5x7, open your print dialog box, click on page setup, and change the size from 8.5x11 to 5x7)
The second theme is a more traditional and elegant Christmas tree theme.
 
To create this invite, print out the invite on 5x7 white cardstock. Also, print out the Christmas tree pattern. Then cut it out and use the pattern to cut the invite into a Christmas tree shape. To view and print the invite, click HERE.
The last theme is a rustic natural theme.
To create this invite, print it out on 5x7 cream cardstock. Then cut 1/4 inch off of all sides. Cut a 5x7 rectangle from brown paper and glue the invite onto the brown paper, centering it. To view and print, click HERE.
We hope you have a wonderful holiday season full of peace, love, and joy!
