Homemade Invitations - Ideas and Tips for Making Great Invites

Are you seeking ideas and inspiration for creating homemade invitations?

Planning parties can be such a delightful and exciting experience, especially when you love to show off your creative flair to others.

There is much thought and preparation that goes with planning a party, with themes, colors, party favors, and so on. Getting an early start in preparation is a large factor in the success of a party.

One of the first things that you may want to focus on is the invitation. Without invitations, no one will even know there is a party or have party details. Sure, you could verbally tell people or send an email, but having a physical invitation is so much more personal and acts as a visual reminder so people do not forget about it.

There are several options for invites. You can purchase them at a store or you can make homemade invitations. Your decision may reflect your budget as well as your creative ability. Homemade invites seem to add a more personal touch to the party, and some guests may even keep the invitation as a keepsake.

Don't worry if you are not too creative, because there are plenty of ideas for homemade invitations available. All it takes is some determination, willingness, and time to create beautiful, memorable invitations.

You can vary your invitations based on what type of party you will be throwing. For example, if you are throwing a baby shower, consider using cardstock paper and cutting out shapes such as a baby bottle or bib and writing your party invitation details on it.

If, on the other hand, you are going to have a bowling party, you can cut out a bowling pin and decorate it so it looks like such. Birthday party shapes could include a candle, a cake, balloons, or the age that the party person is turning.

Don't forget to include the who, what, when, where, and why on the homemade invitations. Also, consider encouraging invitees to RSVP, so that you know how many people to expect. You need to, of course, provide the necessary RSVP information - contact person, contact details (phone number and / or email address), and the date to RSVP by.

A very common approach to homemade invitations is to use scrapbooking materials to create delightful and fun invitations. You can find scrapbooking materials online or at many local stores. Card stock and parchment paper work very well.

One example of a homemade invite is to cut out a square using card stock or parchment paper of any color. Then, cut out a smaller square to glue onto the bigger one. Write your party invitation ideas on the smaller square. Consider using ribbon and various stickers to decorate the card. You can also add a poem or quote to the invitation if you'd like.

There is also software that you can use to create invitations and print them out. They usually offer all sorts of styles and cards for just about every occasion. Some will also allow you to add pictures of your own. You an always add a picture of the person or persons that the party is for on the home made invitation.

Don't be afraid to use your creativity in making homemade invitations. Visit your local craft or hobby store to find all sorts of interesting things to add to your invitations. Enjoy the experience and enjoy the party!
