It’s clear by the details that go into wedding and event invitations that the goal is to get guests excited for what’s to come. And I can’t think of anything that will get them more excited than receiving a small gift with – or even within – the invitation. This DIY balloon party invitation is a gift in and of itself as a mini cocktail kit. I love this idea for an engagement cocktail party! – Lauren
Small cocktail glass
Mini bottle of your favorite liquor (I used Hendricks)
Fresh herbs that will mix well with the liquor (I chose thyme to go with the gin)
Permanent Pen (I used a gold Sharpie)
Step 1. Start by designing the main part of the package, the invitation! Blow up the balloon and secure (temporarily), I used a clothespin.
Step 2. Letter your invitation text straight onto the balloon with your permanent pen and let dry.
Step 3. Once they have dried, deflate the balloons.
Step 4. Pack all of the pieces inside of the clear cocktail shaker. You can even write the directions for making your cocktail on the outside of the shaker.
Step 5. Deliver and let your guests enjoy!
What ingredients would you include in a pre-party cocktail kit?
