Gathering friends for a holiday party.

I have hosted a holiday party in one form or another for the past 15 years. Some years, they have been large gatherings with mistletoe-induced shenanigans. Other years, they have been smaller, more intimate get-togethers. Regardless of size, it just isn't the holiday season without a party or two on our social calendar.

Each year, I take pride in creating the invitation that will welcome friends and family into our home each December. This year's creation was inspired by a recent trip to a French bakery in Northern California. For a little extra something, I created envelope liners from paper by Snow & Graham. Now I just have to be patient and wait until after Thanksgiving to start decorating! Click to enlarge the following images.

I'm a friend of your cousin, Joan. I've enjoyed browsing your online shop and blog. And I especially love the invites and the envelope liners featured in this post - way too festive!
