The more you put yourself and your guests into the party details, the more meaningful and memorable an event becomes. Here, Julia incorporated photos of her friends’ children into the invitations – fans crafted from little more than scrapbooking paper and popsicle sticks. Guests got these invitations in advance, of course, but Julia made extras for cooling off during the actual event. Grouped in colorful “bouquets” in metal buckets, they doubled as party décor.
