I always send out paper invites to my holiday party. I'm a sucker for a proper invitation. After years of frustration over dealing with RSVP's I have started throwing a holiday open house. I still include the rsvp request, but I don't count on getting many and I don't bother tracking them down. I just make a ton of food and have plenty of drinks on hand to accommodate the entire guest list should they decide to show up...which they all usually do.

to the reader who said two hours isn't practical. I have two young children and often can't start dinner until 6:00 pm. I refuse to go the chicken nugget in the toaster oven route on a regular basis because I believe this will establish poor eating habits in my children later on. I often make an extra dinner, usually a pot roast on Sunday night and then simply re-heat it on Monday. Pot roast always tastes better the second day anyway. It makes the world of difference to have at least one meal prepared in advance during the work week.

I bought some as well, from Ikes, and they don't work! Not even my husbands 1970's matchbox cars will stick. Boo! How are those cars sticking to the magnet in the photo? I don't get it.
