A Recipe for Great Memories

We are getting ready for a birthday party here at our house. Abbey celebrated her 12th birthday this past week. We had planned on having a little get together the Sunday before her birthday; but with everyone getting sick, we had to postpone our plans.

So, I thought I would share with you the invitations that we got sent out this week. I really really enjoyed putting the together. I think we are going to have a great time on Sunday afternoon with all these little girls around baking.

Abbey chose to do a baking party. I thought I would make the invitations out to look like recipe cards. We then attached them to a spatula with a ribbon and on the utensil we wrote: You're invited and then the guest's name.

Here is a picture of the invitations: ( I tried to get close enough so you can read the 'recipe')

So, tomorrow afternoon while most people are taking their Sunday afternoon naps, I will be here with the girls baking cookies, decorating cakes and cookies - and hoping that we can get to church on time that afternoon. Be sure to come back and check out the pictures from the party.

Great invitations! Sounds like it will be a fun party for the girls.

I too enjoy creating unique invitations for parties...though none of mine are even close to as good as yours.
