Delicious new fall invitations. Gobble Gobble!

Is it wrong to think about Thanksgiving before Halloween? I hope not, because I’ve got Thanksgiving on the brain. I love it all – the turkey, pie, stuffing, being stuffed, cozy fires, family gatherings – and I love our new Thanksgiving invitations. This collection is so deliciously fun that I can’t help myself, I must send them to all of my Thanksgiving guests. Gobble Gobble! Here are three of my favorites.

Take a look at Letterpress Thanks by Vanilla Sky. So playful! I’m especially drawn to the vintage fonts.

Blonde Design’s Family Traditions is another favorite. The bold font and fun feathered friend really catch the eye.

I also can’t get enough of the understated whimsy in Giving Thanks by Demby+Solomon. I’m leaning towards this one…then again…it’s so hard to choose!

What’s really fun is letting my Shutterfly card inspire other details in my Thanksgiving feast. For instance, if I end up choosing Giving Thanks, I can tie that design into my napkin colors – fall greens yellows and browns. I might even use leaves for my dinner table centerpiece, also inspired by the card.

Which Shutterfly fall invitation inspires you? Let me know by commenting on this article. Would love to know what you think.

    The ‘Letterpress Thanks’ for sure! I was really drawn to the collaboration of fonts. The fall color palette and the variety in the presentation reminded me of our Thanksgiving table. I had never thought of sending out written invites for Thanksgiving dinner before. It seems to fun and natural. Thanks for the inspiration!!

more about Rachel B

Thank you for visiting “Picture More”, Shutterfly's Community Blog. My name is Rachel, and I come from a long line of photo enthusiasts. My grandparents kept a large (and heavy!) collection of family photo albums in their living room, which my sister and I loved looking through. My mother continued the tradition by becoming a hobby photographer (phrases like “smile, “hold that pose” and “let me get my camera” were a constant part of our lives). Now my sister and I are avid camera fans. She takes beautiful pictures of her children, and I enjoy capturing the many far-away places my husband and I visit. What I love about Shutterfly is that it helps me turn my photos into meaningful keepsakes like photo books, calendars, and photo gifts (I love my coasters, posters, mug and mouse pad!). My memories are now a part of my everyday life, not living in a shoe box or hard drive. And what I love about "Picture More" is that it will help us get even more creative with our pictures. I'm excited to exchange ideas with all of you!
