Fill in “At Home” cards, it’s time to write those summer party invitations
This blog is being written from the shade of the garden, no rain for 18 days! The grass is going yellow, even the birds seem quiet today and the butterflies rest listless on the roses. The weather looks set fair for the foreseeable future – so time to plan an impromptu secret garden summer party!
No worries that its in three weeks time, we have a stack of Rosé in the cellar, bunting and fairy lights from a wedding ten years ago, and a good play list.
What else? My fill in at home cards ready to be hand written and posted to my nearest, dearest, most fun and spontaneous friends. If they receive a stiffy in the post, they will be tempted out and it feels a bit more special then sending out a group email.
Besides, this isn’t the weather for blinking at your computer screen, its for lazing on the lawn, reading a good paperback that you haven’t had time for in a while, writing invitations (of course) in pink ink, and drinking elderflower cocktails, the one I am gonna try is called Bump Start, sounds delicious, see recipe below..
Bump Start Cocktail
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 lime, juiced
30ml of gin
Time for that wild swim I have been talking about……
ps. If you care about the small stuff but are a bit last minute ( like me!) then you can order your fill in “at home” cards and have them delivered the very next day, phew! Or, if you are the consummate party planner, then you may already be selecting your Christmas themes “at homes” ….. they are all ready and waiting for you on our website !!!
Snapshot glance – what is an “at home” card?
We love at home cards – they’re the perfect way to let your friends and family know of an informal gathering. They serve as a lovely, thoughtful item of stationery that is more thoughtful than an email or a Facebook message but not as formal as a personalised invitation. For summer parties, impromptu gatherings and fun correspondence with your nearest and dearest, fill in at home cards set the tone for your event and act as wonderful keepsakes of those memorable evenings.
