Inviting Thankfulness


Simple invitations for a simple party - cupcakes in the park before kinder.
No presents please. We loved Rose's wonderful idea and so this year we are asking for donations towards an Oxfam present. The girls are working around the house this summer for pocket money to donate themselves.
Whilst we were away we thought a lot about the core values we would like to teach our children. We named three, thankfulness was one of them. I think this little exercise will help to reinforce this value.

What a beautiful, simple, lovely invite !

Hope you have better luck with the Oxfam thing than I do at Christmas time with family who think an education for a child for a year is 'not much fun', so get me a gift I neither want nor need anyway....

*sigh*

Here's wishing for goat's a plenty!

Speaking of, we saw a ute this morning at Heathmont shops with a goat tied up to it! Go figure!

Lovely invite.

Hi!!!
I've always wanted to do the no presents thing, but Ive always pulled out at the last minute. It is a much better idea to donate to Oxfam.
how was your holiday? The photos are amazing.

What a gorgeous invitation and what a gorgeous idea for a present!!! I might have to use that idea on my daughter in the coming years.
