Our YW in Excellence is coming up. My committee of YW selected the "It's a Jungle Out There!" theme which I think will make a great evening! They are doing a lot of the footwork and phone calling so I told them I would make the invitations.
Mother's cookies just came out with iced Jungle Animal Cookies (green and white instead of the standard pink and white Circus Cookies). How did they know? I placed several in a glycine bag - a left over from my daughter's wedding reception - and stamped some paw prints and shapes on it. I added the invitation to the front and an animal sticker. They're kinda cute and a nice change from the regular handout. The girls, of course, are always interested in the treat.
It's fun to find new ways to hand out invitations for activities. Buy a large, swirly lollipop and place an invitation on it with a ribbon or a decorated box with the invitation printed in the bottom. A small invitation can be placed on a plastic toy or felt heart pincushion. Play with your idea and your theme. I'll bet you can come up with something very clever and I'd love to hear about it!
