As much as I hate to admit it, summer is winding down. The only good thing about that is that it means it’s almost time for us to host our annual chili cook-off with our friends! This is, without a doubt, my favorite party of the year, because it’s so fun and easy and the food is always terrific. After last year’s party, I shared a bunch of ideas and tips for hosting a chili cook-off with you, including my downloadable voting ballots and scoring worksheet, and a fun idea for making scoring/sampling trays.
This year, I’ve got a new party item to throw into the mix — chili cookoff party invitations that look like a crock pot full of chili! The finished invitations are sized to fit perfectly in a standard size 4 3/8″ x 5 3/4″ invitation envelope.
Cute little crock pot, right? Guess what happens if you pull up on the lid?
What a fun way to reveal the party details!
If you like these invitations, you can purchase our template to customize and print your own. It’s part of our Chili Cookoff Printables collection that’s available on Etsy. This collection lets you make:
- These customizable Chili Cookoff invitations
- Our matching voting ballots and scoresheet
- Our matching chili pot numbers and labels
- Our fun chili pepper banner and decorations that are great for hosting your own chili cookoff party
If you’re hosting a chili cook-off this fall, we’d love to hear all about it! And if you’re looking for some ideas for decorating, we love these festive chili pepper dishes for condiments like cheese and sour cream, and decoration is easy with chili pepper garland and chili pepper confetti. And who doesn’t love a pinata?
