Come Party With Me: Half Birthday Housewarming — Invite

Tomorrow is my half birthday, and if you are a long-time YumSugar reader, you'll know that I always celebrate my half birthday! After consulting CasaSugar on when is the appropriate time to host a housewarming, I've decided to throw myself a half birthday housewarming party. I'll invite my friends over and serve up a delectable spread of appetizers and drinks. Before I can think about the menu, I've got to get the invites sent. To learn how I made the invite pictured here,

With a new house comes a new set of keys and keychain. I'm totally in love with the floral-printed key to my front door, so I thought this would make a fun backdrop to the invitation. I took a bunch of photos with different backgrounds.

I ALWAYS celebrate my half birthday! It just so happens, my birthday is Feb 14 and my daughter's is Aug 14, so it makes it even more of an occasion; I like to think of her as my half-birthday present to myself.
