WWW - Invitations are en route!

I dropped the finished invitations off at the post office today. I slipped the postal worker a Sbux gift card to hand cancel them all. Here's to hoping they make it to their destinations in one piece!

It took me hours to assemble them. The whole ribbon tying bit was a doozy. Some people's ribbons have a much nicer knot than others, but I had just about had it and just wanted them out of my hands.




I let Ben make the final decision on which ribbon to use. He chose the dotted one, which was really my first choice anyways...I thought it was whimsical and still classic and pretty! I bought Michael's out of that one, so when I ran out of it I used the thin one at the bottom on a few.

I'll share the complete set with you all next week, after everyone has received them! They were definitely a labor of love and I"m thrilled with the end result!

These look gorgeous. I can't wait to see the whole thing. And your calligraphy? AMAZING!!! Did you teach yourself? I want to learn to do my invites.

You did a fantastic job on your invitation envelopes! I had a horrid time with ours but my mother and I plowed through them as best as we could :) I like both of the ribbons you used.
