Make at home Invitations
Popular with tweens and teens make at home invitations are a great way to announce your party. Use pictures printed out on cardstock and decorate with markers, ribbons, glitter or jewels. We recently received a fun invitation for a friends 16th birthday that was made up in “ransom note” style fonts with pictures of the birthday girl through out her life. Use coloring book page drawings or check the internet for pictures of your favorite character or theme.
Fun and easy!
If you have a photo program you can easily make birthday invitations using a picture of your child. Choose one or more photos and add birthday party information and details around the picture(s). Having these developed can cost as little as .19 each.
Creative Theme - Going all out with a birthday party theme is fun and what better place to start then the invitation to set the mood for the party. Be creative and think of different ways to invite your guests to the party.
Beach ball invitations - blow up and write the party details on the ball - then deflate and send to guests.
Candy Bars or M&M container invitations- print party details on large labels (found at discount or office supply stores) and stick them on the back of candy bars or M&M containers. Add: "It'll be a sweet time at ______________ birthday party!" or send them out for a Sweet Sixteen party.
Confetti - Always festive to include in an invitation.
Footballs - or other small plastic sports balls. Write party information on them with permanent markers. Fun invitations sure to please.
Game ticket - include an admit one or game ticket for Circus, Carnival themes or Sports themes.
Glow in the dark invitations - for spy, alien or glow in the dark parties. Color invitations with glow in the dark paint or stickers.
Gold Coin - Pirate, Scavenger Hunts or Treasure Hunts.
Helium balloons make wonderful invitations - blow up helium balloons and slip the party information inside. Tie a string on the balloon and then hand out to guests or tie on their front doors. They will have to pop the balloon to find the place and time. Or tie the invitation to the helium balloon string so they can keep the balloon.
Message in a bottle invitations can be found at party stores - write your party information on a piece of paper, slip it into the bottle and seal with a cork. Yes, they can go through regular mail! Or make your own using small soda bottles with lids. Remove labels and cover with stickers or labels.
Sand - place a little sand in the invitation for Luau's, Pirate, Summer or Beach parties.
Scrolls - Write party information on a piece of parchment paper then roll up and tie with a ribbon. (Great for princess, tea parties, medieval and pirate parties)
Secret Code - Write party information in a secret code on the invitation that guests will have to decode. (Scavenger hunts, treasure hunts, spy or detective parties. ) Bottles of bubbles - print out a large label with the party information and details. Stick the label to a bottle of bubbles.
Send a taste - Send something from your party to get guests excited about attending.
Stick on earrings, tiara or jewelry - Princess, Dress Up, Cinderella or tea parties.
Treasure Map Invitations - Make this fun invitation resemble a treasure map. After printing information on a sheet of paper dip them in tea for a few minutes to stain them brown and make them look old. Dry and then roll up and fasten with a cord or string.
