How long has it been since you invited some girlfriends over for some laughter and camaraderie? Last week? Too long to even remember? Either way – it sounds like you need a reason to have a Halloween party. Hosting a ‘Witches Brew’ might be just the thing this season – so gather your witches and make it happen! Stephanie (Candice’s sister and a HMM contributor) hosted her first Witches Brew several years ago and Candice has continued the tradition.
We started with a beautiful 3 part invitation that was literally print/cut/done. We’ve included Candice’s fantastic template below (at the end of the post!) for you to download and add in your information to make it even easier!
‘You’re invited to a Witches Brew. Wickedly delicious treats will be served. We will be enchanted to see you!”
“Leave your broom at the door of:” Insert address, date, time and rsvp info.
“Decorate this hat anyway that you please and wear it to the party! There will be a prize for the best hat!”
We packaged mini witches hats (about $1.99 each from Hobby Lobby) in kraft gable boxes with some gray shred (boxes and shred from Paper Mart) and candy pumpkins. The two smaller cards go in the box on top of the hat. We tied them together with some orange ribbon so they’d not get separated.
Tie on some wide orange (or black, gray, silver…) ribbon and attach the invitation to the outside of the box (over the ribbon) with double stick tape or glue dots. Who wouldn’t LOVE to get an invitation like this? Alternatively, it looks just as cute with the hat wrapped in clear cello (or black??), tied with a ribbon with the invitations attached to the outside.
Because most of our guests live near us, we split up the invitations to hand deliver. It was such fun to see our guests’ reactions when they received their box! Come back tomorrow to see the rest of the details and what else we did for the party!
