Why not host an ornament exchange party for the holidays?
The premise is simple, you invite your friends, coworkers, and family. Everyone brings a wrapped Christmas ornament and at some point during the party, everyone gets to open their new ornament.
The ornaments can be homemade, traditional, cute, or funny. It's fun to see what everyone gets and all of the different types of ornaments that people find. Best of all, it's an inexpensive way to gather folks together to celebrate the joy of the season.
Our big 5" x 7" retro ornament exchange invitations make it easy to bring your favorite people together for the occasion. The invite design features red and aqua retro style ornaments and a banner with fun script lettering. Choose from a light or dark background.
They're easy to personalize and come complete with a white envelope and a 100% satisfaction guarantee from the manufacturer.
If you already have your Christmas decorations up, there's no need to decorate further and the food you serve can be anything as simple as coffee and Christmas cookies all the way on up to a full buffet of comfort food favorites.
Shopping for your ornaments can be easy too if you shop at Amazon.

These retro birthday postcards are a GREAT idea to keep in the house.
They're cute, affordable to buy, (and to send) and they would be super appreciated as an in-hand birthday greeting for anyone.
The design says, My best wishes for your birthday, in fun vintage style fonts. There's an illustration of a straight pin in one corner that makes it look like it's being pinned to a cork board. The design looks aged and worn giving it a delightful antique retro look.
About these postcards:

Text messages and social media posts are nice but if you really want to create an impact, and show you care, a postcard makes a terrific impression. And it's something they can keep and treasure always.
There's less waste too. No need for envelopes that just get tossed into the landfill.
Grab a bunch of these to keep on hand so you'll be ready for everyone's birthday this year.
Here's a fun idea for a his or hers 50th birthday party. These invites look like an audiotape, aka cassette tape, that you personalize with all of the birthday party info.

50th Birthday Party Invitation
This is what the front looks like. The details on this are amazing. It looks do real because it's a photo image of an actual audio tape that you can easily personalize for your favorite about-to-be-fifty-year-old birthday person.
Here's a look at the flip side.
This gorgeous retro Christmas ornament is called, Peace Begins Within.
We love the 1960's psychedelic look of this traditional peace sign with it's swirling colors.
Although the peace sign reminds us of those retro days in the 1960's, there's never a bad time to display and promote, peace on earth.
Because of it's multi-color design and good-looks, this ornament would go well and look fantastic hanging on anyone's Christmas tree this year.
Even though they have a fun 1960's retro look, these gorgeous ornaments will never go out of style. They fit everyone, are affordable, and look great no matter where you hang them. Best of all, you'll save money on orders of 3 or more ornaments so why not grab one for yourself and then go ahead and get all of your Christmas shopping done right now. They make a great gift idea!
Here's some more information about them.
Oh what fun!
I truly think this is the BEST Christmas postcard design I have EVER seen. So unique!
It has an adorable illustrated scene straight out of the 50's.
There's a retro 1950's style cabinet television standing front and center (kind of) and you can see an old-fashioned Christmas tree in the background but THE best thing is that you can upload any photo you love and it appears to be on air on the TV.
Go ahead and click the image of the postcard to be taken to Zazzle where you can test it out with your own photos.
The hardest part about these cute Christmas postcards is deciding which picture you want to use.
There's a soft gray and white snowflake border around the image which also continues on to the back.
Order them as-is and add your own personal hand-written message to each of your friends or "customize it" to have your message printed on the back of the cards.
Sending postcard greetings saves you money on postage too!
I have always been a sucker for postcard greetings and I wish the whole world would go back to the time when postcards were our number one source for wishing friends and family good cheer for the holidays.
But these aren't just useful for personal greetings, I think these would be amazing to use by companies as well. Just think how cute they would look with your logo on the television screen, or maybe a photo of your business address or even the faces of your beautiful and trusted employees.
