What often comes to mind when thinking about party invitation ideas are the fill-in-the-blank store bought type of invitation. While these are fine you may want to keep up with the popular trend of sending out themed invitations. These invitations are unique, creative and appealing and they will set the tone for what is to come.
Whether you throw a luau party, a victorian tea party or need free printable graduation party invitations*, the invitations presented here are novelty invites. You will find one to match every party theme on this site.
Print out the ones you want and write in the party information. You can either mail them or hand deliver them. One creative idea is to have a themed character deliver the invites to guests.
Here are a few party invitation ideas for addressing and sending out the invitations:
Verify all mailing addresses before mailing. Either call or email the guests and ask for the address verification.
Use the prettiest postage stamps that are available.
If you decide to send out the invites by mail, do so for all guests.
Don't be caught inviting some people by mail and some by personally calling or asking them.
