It’s (yet another) party theme week on yamf! This time I’ll share ideas for a NYC themed bash that would work for a city kid as well as a welcome or farewell party to the Big Apple. So let’s get started with the invitation, shall we?
Interactive invitations are always a treat to receive and worth the extra shipping cost. To create these, I used a small cardboard box covered with paper and topped with a view-top lid (you can get similar ones here). I filled it with paper crinkle, set this toy wooden taxi on top, and sealed with striped washi tape. The secret is the invitation is folded up on the bottom.
After the excited guest digs through the crinkle, folded up on the bottom is the poster invitation to be pulled out and read thoroughly until you flip it over to reveal…
a play map for your taxi. Bam!
