Fabulous Party Idea & Invitation

Looking for a great idea for a fall party? Take a hint from the prestigious Krewe of Artemis's recent soiree.

Krewe founder, Joanne Harvey, contacted the "krewe" at Frill Seekers with a challenge...find a fabulous invitation for the krewe's fall party. The invitation has to be reminiscent of Mardi Gras, dressy casual in style, fun yet functional for an afternoon event and reasonably priced. Hmmmmmmmmmmm.

The paper dolls at Frill Seekers Gifts swung into action. Knowing that this "krewe" (Mardi Gras word for members of the elite Carnival Organization) has a roll call of South Louisiana's who's who, we knew it had to be a special invitation.

Suddenly, we thought of a relaxing afternoon of good wine and good friends. You know, like "Wine Down" after a busy day kinda thing! We tapped the creative creations of Odd Balls Paper Company and found the perfect card. The vertical, water color card, features the majestic Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and gold. A beautiful, long stem wine glass graces the side of the card. Notice that our personalization team added an elegant initial to the glass in a soft charcoal gray color. This color change gives the illusion that the letter was hand engraved into the glass. {{Ohhhh, ahhhh!}}

Next, the wording was laid out to fit the card. If you've ever ordered an invitation from Frill Seekers, you KNOW our team does the most amazing layouts. Every inch of the card space is used, along with delectable font choices and stunning wording. It's what makes our invitations stand out from the crowd.

Captain Harvey was very pleased with her latest order. But...she had another challenge for us! She wanted custom printed napkins to coordinate with the invitation and a unique party favor for each guest.

Soooo, gotta go...the hunt is on! We'll keep you posted on what we come up with.

If you are hosting a party this holiday season, let the Frill Seekers team create an unforgettable invitation for you. We're just a phone call or email away!
