"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!"
"The invitations looked great! And so easy to "design.""
"These holiday open house invites were perfect! Easy to design, arrived in a timely fashion, and beautiful! What could be easier?!"
If you are planning on hosting a holiday soiree this winter, it is important to send out Christmas party invitations long before the stockings are hung by the chimney with care. This winter season, invite your friends, family and loved ones over with festive, custom invitations from Shutterfly. Holiday parties are a tad easier to throw with help from Santa’s other helper, Shutterfly.
Designing the Invitations
Don’t let finding the perfect Christmas party invitations worry you. Whether you live over the river and through the woods or in a town near the brightest lit tree, Shutterfly has the perfect option for your Christmas cards. Simply find the one you like the best and choose your favorite design elements, fonts and messaging. Some of the templates even offer the option of uploading your favorite photographs (so you can let your invitations double as your yearly Christmas card).
There are plenty of informational tidbits to include in your invitations, but don’t worry—Shutterfly has the basics covered with a place to put all of the important details. Make sure you include important information like the date, time and address of your holiday party on your invitations. Be sure to order your invitations with plenty of time to mail out, too. Including an RSVP-by date and contact can be very helpful with your holiday party planning. Step your holiday party invitations up a notch with corresponding Christmas address labels in a variety of festive styles.
Throwing the Party
Christmas is a time for love and cheer and your party should be no different. Whether you are hosting an elegant, holiday-themed brunch or planning to rock around the Christmas tree, party planning shouldn’t be stressful. Once you know how many people to expect, you can easily plan the menu, decorations and even think about playing festive games. Consider a special area for the little ones to eat sugarplums and play their own special holiday games like “pin the red nose on the reindeer.” If you are stumped with decoration ideas, Shutterfly has plenty of customizable home decor options to help your holiday shine bright.
The holidays are a wondrous and magical time. Shutterfly makes it easier than ever to throw the perfect holiday gathering, whether your guests are enjoying a festive brunch or coming to trim the tree. From the first Christmas party invitation to the finishing decorative touches, you are sure to be the hit of the season.
