Before you start planning your child’s birthday party, you must pay close attention to the invitation. Now you can choose to send generic invitations that are normally sent out to guests or you can put a spin on them to make them more interesting.
Here are top 5 birthday party invitations ideas to send out for your child’s next birthday party:
1. Handmade Invites
Store bought invitation cards have become very common these days. If you have a little time on your hands, handmade part invitations are a great idea. You can also include your child in this activity so that it appears that the invite has come personally from them. Your child can address the invitations or contribute some artwork around the edges. If you have no choice but to get store-bought invites make sure that they are addressed by hand at least.
2. Cootie Catcher Invitations
All kids have played with cootie catchers at least once in their lives. This is a fun and creative way to make your kid’s birthday invitations look interesting. The outside flaps can hold decorations and the inner ones can include information such as the date, time and location. Instead of concentrating on making the cootie catchers perfect, make them colorful and creative!
3. Party Hat Invitations
What are birthday parties without party hats? Instead of sending an invitation on a flat piece of paper, fold them into wearable party hats. These are sure to be loved by your little guests and can also be kept as a souvenir. There are several foldable party hats designs that can be used as birthday invitations.
4. Scavenger Hunt Invites
If you are planning to hold a scavenger hunt at the party, you can use the birthday party invitations to let the guests know about it beforehand. You can use clever and fun wording on the invitation to announce the time of the hunt and ask your guests to bring a bag to carry their loots home. Mail these in brown envelopes for an added effect!
5. Customized Chocolate Invitations
If you are still searching for creative options to invite people to your kid’s birthday party, customized chocolates are a unique idea. You can have the date and time carved on the chocolate. The box too can be customized to give other information about the party. This will make sure that people remember your invitation for years to come!
One thing that you must remember is that the birthday card must go along the theme of the party if there is one. You can also include timings for events so that the guests are on time for all of them. For example, the time for the cake cutting, magic show etc. can be included in the invite itself.
Additionally, although creative invitation cards are an amazing choice, make sure that all the information such as the address, date and your phone number are clearly visible.
