Selecting And Using The Best Birthday Invitation

Your invitation card will set the scene for the upcoming party. Picking the right card is an important part of planning a successful event. Should you use the free printable, customizable invitations from this page, or buy an invitation box from a store? When should you choose an invitation? How can you make invitations match your needs? What criteria to consider when selecting an invitation card? See our tips on selecting the best birthday party invitation to find out.

Selecting the best birthday party invitation for your needs is a multi-step process that begins with smart party planning.

  • Know when to start looking. Choose invitations midway through the planning process, after you’ve decided on the decor and themes. This will enable you to pick an invitation that’s related to the event.
  • Ask the relevant questions. Is there a party theme? What colors have you selected for the napkins, tablecloth, paper plates, and streamers? What is the age being celebrated? Answering these questions will help you select an invitation that makes sense for the birthday party being planned.
  • Look for invitations that match your criteria. Standard birthday invitations will provide information about the party date, time, food, and guest of honor. If you need to provide some other party details to your guests, you may need a customizable invitation with extra space for writing messages or an RSVP card.
  • Consider the physical characteristics of the card. Birthday party invitations come in different shapes and sizes. Cards of an unusual height or width may be more expensive to send in the mail. You may need to prioritize cost, and worry less about style, in order to stay on budget.
  • Get the opinion of the person of honor. If you’re planning a birthday celebration for a friend, a relative, or a child, show them different invitation options you selected. Including the guest of honor in these decisions ensures no party-day disappointments.
  • Make changes as needed. Most downloadable invitations can be customized. When looking at options, remember that not all templates are set in stone. Consider the ways in which each one could be changed to meet your needs. Deleting or adding different elements could make a so-so card into the perfect invitation for your event.

Once you’ve selected the right card, it’s time to fill each one out to send to the appropriate person. Get creative to show guests that your upcoming birthday party is going to be a blast.

  • Use a calligraphy pen to give the card a beautiful, hand-written look.
  • Use high-quality card stock.
  • Decorate the card with ribbons and bows.
  • Use glitter and markers.
  • Personalize each invitation to the recipient.
  • Enclose a picture of the birthday boy or girl to make the invitation more personal.
