Invite Excitement With Creative Party Invitations
Of all the responsibilities of throwing a party, the invitation is often the most overlooked—and the most important. The party invitation is the first thing guests will see. It gives them an idea of the theme, atmosphere, and basic information about the party. If you rigorously work to throw a party, you want the invitation to show it!
For every type of party, there are hundreds of invitation possibilities. While creativity at a party is somewhat optional, it is a must for the invitation. It’s the “calling card” for the event. Invitations represent the event in its entirety.
Add A Personal Touch To Party Invitationsphoto inside of a more intricate invitation.
Find a humorous or endearing photograph from a scrap album, have copies made at any photography development counter, and add the time, date, and location on the back or on the rest of the invitation. Imagine getting a photo in the mail of a friend dressed like a cowboy as a four-year-old and how difficult it would be to forget. We all have such photos, and using them as invitations is a memorable way to bring guests to the party.
Announce The Special Event With Party Invitation Pizzazz
Another event that requires an invitation is a wedding. The invitation, like the ceremony, can be as extravagant or as simple as the bride and groom desire. Including the color scheme of the wedding is a good idea in any case. For more casual weddings, such as a beach wedding, gathering cues from the surroundings is an excellent idea.
Sending a customized monthly calendar with the date marked is one way to add flair to function. Another functional idea that is also appealing is a magnet with a picture of the couple and the wedding information. Both of these unique options ensure your guests will remember the big day and are full of personality. Black-tie weddings suggest a more formal invitation, but any of these personal touches can be sent in addition to a high-quality wedding invitation.
Playful Invitations For Playful Occasionsinvitations shaped like rings, cakes, or dresses. The bachelorette party invitation could even be a coaster with the information on it.
Also, don’t be afraid to get creative. If there is a theme or a location, something tropical for example, perhaps add a little umbrella to the invitation. A simple card with the basic information and an umbrella attached sets the tone for the party, provides the necessary information, and suggests an exciting time.
House-warming invitation invites can be something as simple as a paint sample with printed information. A take-out menu with a quip about being sick of eating it could be a humorous invite to close friends and family. However, if the guest list is large, it may be wise to stick to a more generalized invitation.
Birthday parties for kids are usually themed and the possibilities for invitations are numerous. The invitation should display the theme for the party and be kid-friendly, as in no small parts a child could choke on. A common theme for children’s parties is a pirate theme. The invitation could be a treasure map made of card stock or a paper bag. Draw a map, add the basic information, crinkle the paper, and burn the edges.
After a child grows out of his pirate years, the graduation party invitation is another easy way to be creative. A mock diploma, rolled up, tied, and sent in a little tube is a quirky way to invite people to the celebration. A copy of the “last report card”, complete with funny grades and comments, is another way to humorously let people know someone is out of school.
The Sky Is The Limit With Creative Party Invitations
There are endless possibilities for parties and party invitations. Celebrations go from traditional to outlandish, and the invitation should reflect whatever direction you choose. While the purpose is the same for every invitation, no two should ever be the same. Putting thought into an invitation is the same as putting thought into the celebration. It doesn’t have to be complicated, although it can be, it just needs to provide guests with an idea of what to expect when they RSVP to your event.
