Designing the Invitations
No matter how formal or casual you want your holiday party to be, designing and printing the invitations is the easiest part. With Shutterfly, you can upload your favorite photos or choose from one of our hundreds of design templates. With the click of a mouse, choose between your favorite fonts, colors and design elements to create one-of-a-kind holiday invitations. Make sure to include the time, date and location of your party. If you're having trouble with the design, draw inspiration from these unique holiday card ideas.
Making sure that you have an RSVP-by date and contact number on your holiday invitation will help make your party planning efforts a breeze. It is also helpful to include whether guests are encouraged to bring wine, a dish to contribute or simply dress prepared to rock around the Christmas tree. Finally, be sure to note whether or not this is a kid-friendly party. Aim to send the invitations out at least three weeks ahead of time to allow people to make arrangements to come to your party.
Planning the Holiday Hop
The invitations have been mailed and now it’s time to hang decorations by the chimney with care. Hopefully, your RSVPs will let you know who is on the nice list and allow you to start planning the food and drink menu. Custom stickers can be a fun touch for every party.
Want to make sure you have enough glassware? Shutterfly has plenty of personalized stemless wine glass options. Not throwing the party but looking to bring a unique hostess gift? Consider a personalized pillow as an alternative to wine.
Whether your guests have to travel over the river and through the woods or plan on arriving via sleigh, winter parties are the best way to end the year. This holiday season, invite your guests with custom invitations to help celebrate the most wonderful time of the year.
