Summer Party Invitations

by Jo Williams July 08, 2013

 My soon to be six year old has been desperate to make some Invitations for her Birthday Party to hand out before the end of the school term. We (eventually) decided on having a bright and fun summer theme and have everything crossed that it will be on a sunny day and we can host it outside in the garden.

Inspired by a recent blog post I spotted on the fabulous site Funky Time we decided to make some cute Popsicle (Ice Lollys here in the UK) invites. Funky Time have some really fantastic Free Printables and their Popsicles can be downloaded and simply cut out. 

Popsicle Party Invitations 

Printing out was not an attractive idea for my five year old today as she wanted to do lots of sticking! So we made our own out of scrap paper. We printed the party details on a piece of coloured paper, cut it out in an Ice Lolly shape and stuck it to another Ice Lolly shape with a 1/4 length piece of paper straw stuck between them to make the lolly stick, we then decorated them! They do look particularly cute in Glassine Bags.

Birthday party

my order arrived on time, the balloon were sensational!
Will come back!

They look very elegant

Time

These don't come assembled so allow yourself enough time for folding the foil into strips and attaching with bands. Looked lovely on the fireplace (not lit!)

Order enough

This only filled 2 numbers and two 16in orbs so definitely order more than you need and note it gets expensive!!! Do a design that allows you to use air and hang upside down and save helium for where you really need it.

Just what I needed

Guess what- it was perfect for a hen party! Top quality.
