When we built our home this past year… one thing we tossed around was whether we should spend the money on a hot tub or not. We finally decided to go with it and it’s a choice we don’t regret! We have used it repeatedly since moving in this past January and it’s just another reason why our backyard feels like a family retreat!
I was contacted by Jacuzzi recently and asked if I would create a printable invitation as part of their #First100Days campaign! They have been showing all sorts of things you can do in the first 100 days of owning your Jacuzzi Hot Tub throughout this campaign and I was more than thrilled to be a part of it! If you have followed this blog for a while, or follow me on social media, you may already know that I consider myself a social homebody! I love to entertain and have people around, but I am a totally homebody, so I like to socialize here! I work at making our backyard a great entertaining spot and I love the ideas Jacuzzi has put together for this campaign!
I began thinking of what sort of design I could come up with to represent the Jacuzzi brand and inspiration obviously brought me to a) water and b) the yard… After doodling with my art pen, I began filling in the spaces between leaves and florals with blue watercolor and I loved the results! After finishing the illustration, I scanned it in and used it to create this printable invitation for those Hot Tub Open house parties! It’s so simple, invite a few friends to come BBQ, hang out, and see the newly improved yard after you install your Jacuzzi.
After downloading, open the file in Adobe Reader (a free program available on Adobe.com if you don’t have it). If your computer opens it in a default PDF program, close out and open from within Adobe Reader, or it won’t work correctly.
Once open, you can highlight the ” time, date, saying, RSVP, and location” and change it to whatever you need for your party! The top text isn’t editable as it’s part of the design. Entering the information in the first text box, will automatically enter it into the second, so you don’t have to type it twice. After you finish your text and are happy with it, you can save it to your computer and then print it! I recommend printing on #110 white card stock, which can be found at an office supply store. There are two 5″x7″ invitations per page, so you can print on the traditional 8.5″x11″ size paper. I use a straight edge paper cutter to cut mine out, but scissor would work fine if you have a steady hand!
Finally, slip your custom invites into an A7 sized envelope and send them off! I hope you love the invite and congrats on making your back yard living space the perfect place for family and friends to relax!
