We are big fans of old-fashioned hand-written dinner invitations. They are such an unusual touch of civility and graciousness in our fast-paced world. We just came across these letterpressed dinner invitations from Etsy seller Pink Lily Press, and we're already planning dinner parties in our head. Read on for another favorite design.

We like these because they are still casual; they're not stuffy or pretentious. But the heavy paper and bright colors are still something special, more intimate than an email.

The seller says that she is happy to take custom requests or to create sets of these invites.

Do you ever use paper invites for your dinner parties?
