Thanksgiving Dinner Invitations - Creative Options to Invite Guests

When it come to planning a Thanksgiving party, a large amount of focus is placed on the party itself. While it is important to plan and prepare for your party, there are some party hosts who forget the importance of inviting their guests. While the guests always end up getting invited, it isn't in the manner that they wished to be invited. If you are hosting a Thansgiving party, you are urged to invite your guests with real party invitations; you will find that there are a number of benefits in doing so.

Perhaps, the biggest benefit to inviting your guests to your Thanksgiving party with formal invitations is the fact that your invitation will reflect upon your party. The inv
itation is a lot of times the first indication of the formality or casualness of the event. Let the invitation set the mood for your upcoming event. Also, guests feel more important when invited with a formal invitation. If you took the time to send them a party invitation, they are more likely to make a point of coming to your party.

When it comes to party invitations, you will find that you have a number of different options. The most popular option is using store bought invitations. Store bought invitations are nice and typically come with pre-filled recommendations,
such as the party date, time and place.

r convenient option, especially if you have a hectic schedule, is purchasing your Thanksgiving party invitations online. Stores like Greeting Card Universe offers high quality real paper greeting cards and invitations for every occasion. As the consumer, you are able to add your specific party information directly to the inside of the card. You can also add a personal note if you wish. Greeting Card Universe will also take on the chore of mailing the party invitations to your guests with a good looking presentation.

If you are looking for a way to invite your guests without spending a lot of money, you can easily do this by making your own Thanksgiving party inv
itations. In most party supply stores or craft stores you can find a collection of blank cards or themed papers. Often times your computer will also have card and party templates which you can use.

As previously men
tioned, there are a number of benefits to sending your Thanksgiving party guests real party invitations, whether they are store or internet bought or handmade. Your guests will enjoy they thought and effort that you put into it.

For more cards and invitations that you can customize and personalize please visit my other card gallery on Lora Severson Photography on Zazzle
.com. You will find many card templates that you can use to create any kind of card you need whether it be a birthday card, anniversary card, congratulations or get well card or thank you notes. I am a photographer that has a passion for nature, flowers and martial arts.

Fall Planting

Fall Planting by Veracan

Soon it will be time for fall gardening. Removing the spent annuals, pulling the endless weeds, cultivating mulch and planting fall flowers.

Just because mums are available now (in August), does not necessarily mean you should start today. Growers push an early batch because the retailers have been sitting idle for most of July and August. There are early blooming varieties of Mums and Asters, but generally not this early.

Fall gardening is just that. It feels great to get outside when the temperatures are in the mid 70’s instead of the high 90’s. Fall is the best time to do many, many things in your garden.

Mulch - Fall is a great time to cultivate all the mulch in your beds. Over the season the mulch has a tendency to become compacted. The necessary water and air cannot get to the roots of the plants where it is needed. Use a 3 or 4 tined garden Hoe to turn the mulch.

Fertilizer and weed preventer - Once you have cultivated your mulch, a good organic fertilizer and a weed preventer, such as Cockadoodle-doo organic fertilizer and Cockadoodle-Doo corn gluten weed preventer is a great fertilizer for your plants and shrubs and a natural weed preventer to keep those winter weeds away.

Plantings - The fall season is the best time to plant trees and shrubs. As the temperatures are in a cooling pattern, trees and shrubs are less likely to go into shock after transplanting. They take root more easily, because the plant is not working so hard to keep the foliage from becoming stressed due to the heat. Many trees are dug in the fall. To get trees that have been freshly dug, go to your local nursery (not big box store) in October. Ask the nursery salesperson if they are getting any fresh trees for the fall. On the East Coast, trees normally get dug in October, depending on the weather. If all you can find are trees that were dug in the spring, ask for a discount if they are already not on sale. No Nursery wants to keep too much stock over the winter. There is too much loss. When you do plant shrubs and trees in the fall they still require water, mulch and TLC. Plant your fall flowers in mid to late September so the color lasts well into the fall. Plant your bulbs late in the fall, so they don’t start to grow. Tulips and Daffodils not to mention the dozens of other spring blooming bulbs will do best planted in early November once the temps are going to stay cold.

The Lawn - Fall is the absolute best time of year to overhaul the lawn. Get a soil test to check the Ph of the soil. Lime if necessary. Aerating and or thatching are best done in the fall. Aerating is the process of making holes in the lawn, about 2 inches deep, so water and air can get to the roots of the turf. Thatching is the process of getting rid of the “thatch” or dead build up that can choke out the good turf and prevent water and fertilizer from reaching the roots of the turf. Once you aerate or thatch the lawn, I would recommend over seeding and fertilizing. Thatching the lawn will leave bare or thin areas in the lawn, if you do not over seed, the weeds will just take over. Once you have over seeded and fertilized it is a good idea to get that seed covered, to keep it from drying out between watering and from becoming bird food. Straw is a good cover, except you need to pull it up. Peat moss is a good cover and you don’t have to pull it up. A reusable grass germinating mat is also great. The grass germinates faster because it generates warmth and allows water to flow through, yet still protecting it from critters. A good organic fertilizer will get the turf through the winter without becoming stressed.

Fall is also a great time to prune your trees and shrubs. Give them a good haircut so they keep their shape. When they flush out in the spring they will be nice and dense, not stringy.

Take time to enjoy your fall gardening. Working in the yard this time of year will ensure you of a beautiful and lush spring season.
