As soon as the leaves start to turn, turkeys start to look nervous and the towering displays of cranberry sauce appear in the grocery stores, I know that it's time for a very special day...the mascot's birthday, of course! (What were you thinking?)
This year, the kid has opted to celebrate with only two of his closest friends. They're going to take in a movie and then come back to our place for pizza, cupcakes and an all-night video game and junk-food bender. Perhaps it was with a hint of either optimism or irony that I came up with these rather subdued party invitations.
They were created with cardstock, patterned paper and an arcade ticket. The text on the front and on the inside was cut from a vintage party invitation (Thanks, Jill!!)
