Out of the Envelope and Into the (spit)Fire.

Happy Almost-New Year, all!

While the bulk of the Holiday entertaining is coming to an end, I don't think it's ever too early to start thinking about next year or your next Shin-Dig. You know me, I'm always looking for alternatives to the alternative, and new ideas that break the vanilla mold. Here's a fun, unique alternative to your next invitation, Evite, or Save the Date.
Spitfire Girl (www.spitfiregirl.com) does a great line of gift box invitations for pretty much any occasion. The invitations arrive as a jewelry box size gift filled with a little scene and small trinkets to reflect the appropriate holiday or occasion you're celebrating. These could be really fun for a New Year's Eve party, holiday gathering, birthday party, or if you're a very non-traditional bride and groom, even for a wedding. The boxes have a very, vintage, 1950's feel. The decorations remind me a lot of vintage cupcake/cake toppers, ballerinas from old music boxes, and Christmas ornaments. You simply fill in the important details for your shin dig, and mail them off to your guests. How fun is that? It's like getting a little gift that keeps on giving in the mail. Your guests are sure to never forget your party, even before they get there. You can even send them as an alternative to cards, instead of as an invitation. So, if you have the room in the budget next time, skip the fill-in invites from Hallmark, and think outside the box. Or in this case, inside the box,
