Halloween Owls Invitation

The owls are back! Or at least one of them is. In case you haven’t seen them, I made a collection of Halloween owls cupcake toppers back in 2012. You can see a photo of them below.

Well, I might be a little slow, but I finally got around to making a matching invitation. It features one of the cute owls, joined by some of his bat friends for All Hallows Eve. I just love the purple and orange color scheme, and the whimsical, magical look of this design.

In addition to this cute colorful example, and the ones in the toppers, in real life owls come in all shapes and sizes. If you look at the Wikipedia page on owls, you’ll see what I mean. My personal favorite is the laughing owl, which was probably the inspiration for the illustrator to create the images used in these designs (whether she knew it or not).  It has white around the eyes, just like the illustrations.

This pool party template is admittedly a little odd-looking. But I thought it would be fun to experiment with something that might appeal to people who want a design that’s little less ordinary for their summer (and maybe even winter) pool parties.

The design reminds me of Iridium, a restaurant that used to be in Manhattan many years ago. I believe it also was the site of one of Monica’s chef jobs in Friends. It was the coolest restaurant. Everything looked like it was dripping or somehow askew, sometimes even including including the food. It embraced the architectural movement, a la one of my favorite Manhattan restaurants, Gotham Bar & Grill. So the food was stacked up high in odd combinations. Pure fun! Anyway, the drippiness of this invitation template design is an homage to both those restaurants and the wonderful food I ate there.


If you want to mail these invites, you can print them in these standard size envelopes: 5″ x 7″ (A7) or 3 1/2″ x 4 7/8″ (A4).  You can find the instructions for creating those sizes (or any other size, if you’ll be handing them out) by visiting my free printable beach party invite designs hub or clicking the button below. There are also a lot of other summer-related designs on that page.

Free Printable Dinner Party Invites

I must have been born in the wrong decade. I would’ve been very at-home in the era when long flowing gowns were worn to formal dinner parties. (Let’s put aside the fact that they didn’t have the vote and many weren’t allowed by their husbands to work for a living, it was a beautiful time visually!) So this dinner party invitation is an homage to that more civilized time — but with modern twists. The periwinkle color scheme makes it a little more modern, as does the floral background. If periwinkle isn’t your thing and you’d like to change the color scheme, you can pop it into a graphics program, such as Photoshop Elements (Photoshop’s less expensive and easier to use sibling) or the free Pixlr.com program. Just use the “Hue and Saturation” settings to adjust the colors.

The overall design is subtle, and that’s on purpose. I wanted the final invitation to be soft and sophisticated. I hope you find it useful!
