Speaking of invitations... and chandeliers

I had this internal conversation with myself when I realized the chandelier invite was the hippest thing to hit paper since ink. It was pretty sharp and witty and went like this:

"Huh. That's a light fixture. A chandelier... On an invitation... Oh. There's another - two is a coincidence... Three is a ... trend. It's still a light fixture in the end... I don't know if I get it unless it were a house warming or an interior designers event... Some are really special though... Huh..." You're probably pretty into my stream of consciousness right now, and while it is no less riveting to possess it internally; all the can't-wait-for-my-next-genius-thought, we need to move on to the graphics...

The Hostess is for them, unabashedly. Light fixture - yes. But the greatest of all light fixtures and if you're going to put hardware on your invites then it should be the King of all comers.

I've been using chandeliers in my designs for about 7 months now. They're just a classic.

How's the new one?

I found three websites that have lots of unique baby shower invitations, personalized birthday party invitations and custom Holy Communion baptism invitations cards at:


I have ordered from all three for different occasions and been very pleased. Take and look and see what you think
