I am busily addressing announcements for my daughter's high school graduation. For those friends and family that are fairly close by we are including an invitation to an open house. My daughter made the invitation on PrintShop and we had it photocopied. Each invitation is a half sheet, 8.5" x 5.5".
When we ordered our announcements in the fall, we counted up who we needed to include and ordered more than we thought we needed, but now we are coming up real close to not having enough.
Most of my husband's cousins kids are still at home like ours, so are included in their parents' announcement/invitation, but he has three cousins whose eight kids between them are lots older than ours, mostly married with families of their own.
We are not sending announcements to these eight, I guess they'd be my daughter's second cousins, but don't want them to feel left out of the open house if they'd like to come. Maybe, just maybe, one out of the eight would come. Would it be too tacky to hand write the following on their parents' invitation?
Please extend this invitation to your children and their families.
