Do you know somebody who is relocating? It’s obviously on my mind these days and it sounds like a wonderful excuse for a party, don’t you think? Here are some pictures for inspiration.
An invitation sets the tone. You could also incorporate color copies of a map showing the new location on your invitation….
Or use an old photo with simple buttons and fabric.
I love sprucing up old fashioned crepe paper. It’s cheap and colorful and so happy looking!
Or, you could use balloon garlands…

Here’s a simple garland using vintage postcards. You could use postcards with your party theme, maybe images of the new city? Or you could buy a bunch of postcards and have guests write messages on them. Later you can send these to the guest of honor at the new place.
This is a cute idea. Incorporating a vintage typewriter for guests to add their personal wishes. Placing these in an album with photos from the party would be a sweet gift.
You could set a colorful table outside if weather permits. Bright ribbons are used to tie the silverware and mismatched placemats and lots of pillows create an old fashioned, comfy look.

And don’t forget the food. What about these ideas for an outdoor party?

And don’t forget to decorate with pictures. Here’s one idea if your setting is outside, plus, the guest of honor can take the pictures to their new home.
Now, if only I had the time….
