Creating the guest list and sorting the invitations is one of the first exciting steps when planning any party no matter how big or how intimate.
Invitations let guests plan and allow the host to manage numbers are the invites are accepted or declined. Invitations are also a great way of engaging children in the planning of their own birthday parties, particularly if you are going to send personalised invites.
Many outlets provide a facility through their website which allows you to create your own design, upload an image if you desire and add relevant text.
This is a great opportunity to engage the child in choosing the design and also in creating the guest list. There is great opportunity to negotiate in this kind of exercise and to help a child to develop an understanding of some of the elements of organising a party including, not least of all cost.
Personalised invitations are a delightful idea for Hen and Stag parties. It’s an opportunity to outline the program planned for the night or the weekend, whether it’s as simple as going for a few celebratory drinks after a meal or if it involves some strenuous exercise such as mountain climbing or white water rafting.
Personalised invitations are welcomed by family members for Confirmation and First Holy Communion parties and make lovely keepsakes for doting grandparents
Allow your guest list to sit for a couple of days – there’s always someone you omitted before you order your bespoke invitation cards to avoid complications and as with all bespoke items order early to avoid that last minute rush.
If you are having a themed party be sure to include elements of that theme in the design of the cards
