This Halloween the Farley family isn't having a Farley Family Function. But fear not I hopefully have 50+ Halloweens to come (knock on wood)! So I want you all to have an extra awesome Halloween this year for me!!! ;) Here are some of my Halloween Invitations from the past few years!
Now that our family and friends have recieved their invitations, I thought I'd share them with you!
We made circus poster wedding invitations! :)
I say "we" because it took a village! ;) We had a friend do the design layout, then I took all his fancy design elements and made the RSVP & tickets, the fellows at work (Sonic Print) did all the printing, cutting, and perfing, and Lauren and Olivia helped me assemble all the invitations! haha!
Thank you ALL so much!
I am very very lucky to have access to a full print shop haha I count my lucky stars everyday!
You see in the middle of the invite where it reads, "GOOBLE GOBBLE" I'll give you a huge hug if you know where that's from and why it's on there! :)
These were the RSVP cards, which had a removable card our family and friends could keep!
The confetti stars were Eli's idea-how could I say no?! Plus they went pretty perfectly!
I had 2 different difficult trips to the postoffice trying to get pretty or interesting postage, well that was a flop. No comprendo!
So I made my own!
I just printed the double B's on sticker paper, then I ran it through the pitney bowes machine.
So here's a bit more of the DIY part!
I saw some paper lace on etsy awhile back and really like it. Our invites didn't really go with lace, so I found a paper punch I liked at Jo-Ann's (of course used my 40% off coupon to buy it). So I punched out a bunch of red piece I wanted to use to wrap around the posters to keep them closed. The next day (forgetting the difficult of the punch) I whined to Lauren that I had carpal tunnel and but it was just my hand and wrist being sore from paper punching! hahaha
The tubs we used started out brown cardboard tubs, but I couldn't send the pretty poster in a brown tub! So I painted them all! :) I LOVE the way they turned out!
We are very excited to say the least!
It's the final countdown! ;)
This is THE most wonderful time of the year for me! I am just so happy October is here!
October is filled with birthdays, family get-togethers, the chance the temperature will drop under 80, and HALLOWEEN! :) Eli and I started decorating the house!
These paper spiders and the black flower wreath both came from The Paper Source. I've only been to a Paper Source store IRL once in Alexandria and it was heaven! Below is Eli's spider, note it only have one red brad thingie, Eli wanted his this way because he said it looked like a professor spider with a monocle. I LOVE that kid! hahahaha
This is our spooky wreath, made spookier by Eli who wanted to add the eyeballs! I thought they were a nice touch! ;) Though our eyeball machine is now low on eyeballs! ;)
We bought our first bitty pumpkin. In Florida it's still SO incredible hot we can't put pumpkins outside yet. Eli must ask me everyday if we can get one and everyday I tell him we have to wait haha trust me kid I want a pumpkin too, but I DO NOT want to clean pumpkin guts up!
Eli and I have also taken all our Monster Fighter Lego and we're making a Halloween Lego Village.
It is looking VERY awesome! Below is the train!
Oh and last night I put together this month's Scout Creative Paper Craft Calendar!
It's a Halloween totem and I LOVE it! Go download one and build it!
I am SO excited about all the fun happenings of October!!! And once October is over November will be here, along with our wedding, so this is going to be a VERY wonderful Fall!
I wish you all a very happy Fall!
