"Beautiful AND fast!!"
"Used this invite for our Annual Baking Party. Every year we have a theme - This year is "Oh What Fun" from the Jingle Bells song. I added to the invite "Be There With Bells On" and attached 3 small red bells to the front. Our guests will know to arrive wearing bells in some manner - it will bring the creativity out of them and will be fun to see how carried away they can get! ;)"
"Came when expected and looked great!"
Planning a Christmas party requires determination and thoughtfulness. Many people have work, church, family and friend parties they must attend throughout the season. With so many parties taking place, weekends are sure to fill up fast. That is why it may be a good idea to send out your merry Christmas invitations early in the season. Here are a few tips that may help your invitations get noticed.
Sending an invitation to a Christmas party is one thing, but how can you be sure that your guests will open it in a timely manner? You need to make your invitation unique and exciting from the envelope. You can create customized postage stamps and address labels to give your recipients a hint about what may be inside. If your Christmas party has a theme, you could incorporate that on the outside of the envelope.
The invitation itself has to be informative. It should be easy for readers to figure out where the party is, when they should show up, when they should RSVP by, what they need to bring and if they’re allowed to invite anyone. A clean layout may make it easier to fit all of this important information. Make sure everyone knows how to get ahold of you, so they can ask questions if needed.
Not only does the invitation have to be informative, but you also have to make sure it fits with the theme of your party. Are you throwing a formal cocktail party or a kid-friendly bash? The style of the invitation may help guests realize what type of party they could attend.
As the day of your party approaches, you may realize you need a few other important supplies, such as cups, dishes and placemats. Depending on the formality of your get-together, you may need party favors or home décor items.
