The Holidays ... As lovers of dishes, stationery, decorating and just about everything home related, so you know we love it when the holidays roll around. This season offers the things we live for: family, friends, good food, decorating and giving. We’re thrilled that the holidays have arrived and we can’t wait to celebrate! Cheers, Hugs and Happy Holidays! Emma & Bailey

This year we’re planning a feast and inviting our loved ones to join us for an evening of merriment. 3

Invitations made by hand set the tone for this intimate evening of family and friends. See the full DIY instructions on the following pages.


6


1

Ink your invitation stamp using a Hunter Green Colorbox stamp pad. Align the stamp over an A7 (5�x7�) card and press down firmly, using even pressure. Lift the stamp off of the paper and let dry.

3

Using pre-made envelope liner templates, trace and cut the liner pattern out of festive decorative paper. Adhere the liner to the envelope using a glue stick or double sided tape. 7


2

Using the same technique as in Step 1, print your return address stamp on the back flap of your envelope.

4

With a white pen, address your envelopes using your most fancy writing, adhere postage and send them off to all of your loved ones! 8


Remembering where each utencil should be placed can be challenging, so we’ve created an easy guide to setting the table. Visit shopantiquaria.com for everything you will need to set your holiday table.
