I thought I’d share with you the save the dates I made in preparation for New Year’s. I know its a bit early but with how busy my group of friends are you have to plan in advance.
Last year I helped throw a “Roaring 20’s” birthday party for my sister and thought it would translate well as a New Year’s theme. After all, you’re getting dressed up anyway and since I had already made signs, posters, decorations, and bought the music for the last party, I figured why not throw another one. This time I’ll be including a murder mystery element which has me pretty excited.
I’m sticking with the aqua and olive green color scheme of the last party which modernizes the theme a bit. On the postcards I used a total of three art deco fonts downloaded from Dafont and decided to go with a scallop pattern, a popular design of the era. The save the dates are fairly simple but somehow it took me FOREVER to draw them up in Photoshop. I guess it doesn’t help that my computer is a thousand years old and is slow as molasses. Regardless, I think they turned out pretty good minus the sometimes uneven boarders and the spelling errors…oops! Next time I’ll have to triple check before going to print, but I figured my friends would be kind enough to overlook it.
Some other ideas on my to-do list for the occasion include:
Website for RSVP’s
Make-shift photobooth with props
Antique Gin (or hooch) Labels
I’ll also be doing some recon next weekend at the Midnight Radio’s production of “Bootleggin” and “Bathtub Gin”. If you’re in the Pittsburgh area check it out. Sounds like it’ll be a great show.
