  1. Have kids cut out and decorate card-stock letters for invitations.

  2. Rubber-stamp a border on a paper tablecloth and hang card-stock initials like streamers (print out letters from your computer to trace).

  3. Adorn cupcakes with monogrammed cookies. Create "name-brand" drinks by coloring in a stencil on patterned paper in marker (affix with double-sided tape).

  4. Set out boxes, filled with rubber stamps and stationery. Mark the top of each box with the stenciled initial of each guest. You can also decorate t-shirts with each guest's initial using iron-on transfer paper for ink-jet printers; follow the package instructions.
