Hosting your teen’s birthday party will bring you right back to the days of your youth. It also happens to be a great way to meet all of their friends and their friends’ parents. Before you know it, they will be out of the house, so share this special time in their life with a wonderful birthday party. Shutterfly has you covered for all of your birthday party needs, from the invitation to decorations, all the way to thank you stationery sets (because it is never too soon or too late to learn the value of sending thank you cards).
Shutterfly makes it easier than ever to capture the personality of your teen and turn their individuality into a beautifully printed, custom invitation. The best part is, you can turn this into a memory-making experience with your teen and let them customize the invitation exactly as they want it. Together, upload your favorite pictures to one of Shutterfly’s many template options. Use the templates to arrange your favorite pictures to perfection. Utilize your preferred design elements to truly customize the invitations. You can personalize down to every detail—choose your favorite fonts, colors and custom message.
Be sure to include the day, time and location of the birthday party in the invitation. Your life will be much easier if you include your personal contact information for the RSVP, so that you can plan the party accordingly. Aim to send out the invitations at least three weeks before the birthday party to allow other parents time to make arrangements.
A fun activity you can do with your teen (or as a surprise gift) is to make a photo collage of them, their friends and all of their favorite photographs. Then, you can display all those special memories at the party. You can even turn your favorite memories of your teen into one-of-a-kind plates or pillows.
It might seem tricky at times to bond with your teen, but creating custom birthday party invitations together is the perfect opportunity to share memories—new and old. Shutterfly is here to help you kindle these memories, so that one day your child will thank you for all the hard work you did for them back in the day.
