The actual invitation that you see rolled up inside the bottle can be just as fun as the packaging. Since this party theme was all about surfing, I wanted the invitation to feel much like a vintage surfing poster.
These mini posters were rolled around a pencil (to get small enough to fit through the mouth of the jar) were tied with coordinating baker’s twine and ready to go.
In the past I’ve also included mini shells and cocktail umbrellas inside the bottle as well. You can also change up the look with colored sand. The dollar store and Michaels both sell packages of colored sand, but the dollar store has fewer colors.
For this type of unique invitation it may be wise to give your guests a heads-up so they don’t think someone put their trash in the mailbox…or you can just let it be a surprise and wait for their reactions!
Either way, these are sure to be a hit and will get everyone in the spirit of your upcoming party.
Aloha, Surfs Up! Enjoy!
