"Everyone commented on how nice the invitations were. Thanks Shutterfly!"
"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! ;)"
Many party planners choose a theme in order to make their decision process a little easier. Whether you’re planning a wedding, baby shower or holiday party, a theme may help you pick out décor and food. For example, if your holiday party’s theme is red and green, it will be easy to choose between a purple centerpiece and something that is red. You want all the pieces of your party to match the theme. For this reason, it may be a good idea to choose a theme before picking out your invitations. If you decide you want to throw a ‘winter wonderland’ party, these snowflakes Christmas invitations may help you set the tone.
Once you have the invitations picked out and designed, what can you do to create your winter wonderland? You may want to start with the decorations. Cutting out paper snowflakes could be an easy and kid-friendly way to start decorating for your party. If you want to have a more grownup air, you could order glass prints of snowy scenes. Whatever you do, you should think white. Get white table clothes, napkins, cups, plates, streamers and balloons to really send home the winter wonderland theme.
After the decorations have been figured out, you need to make sure there will be food and drink for your guests to enjoy. A Christmas party does not need to have a full meal. You can let your guests know that there will only be snacks by including a ‘light snacks provided’ line on your snowflakes Christmas invitations. What kind of light snacks should you offer? Think eggnog, sugar cookies, meat and cheese platters, tartlets, and cheese puffs. Your food doesn’t have to be all white, but if you’re feeling creative it can be.
No matter what theme you pick for your party, be sure to customize your own invitations, postage stamps, envelopes and address labels. Shutterfly has a wide range of invitations for any type of event.
