Kids Party Invitations

You have your guest list and now it is time to start making out invitations.  First, you must obtain them.  You can purchase invitations online, make them, or buy them from a card shop or discount store.  A great many sites allow you to create your own birthday party invitation online free.  Do an internet Google search for “Free Printable Birthday Invitations” and you will have hundreds of possibilities at your fingertips.  The great thing about creating your own is you can make the perfect party invitation to match the theme of the party.

If you have an odd or bizarre theme, it may be hard to buy one that is fitting.  Your invitation sets the mood for the party so try your best to reflect the theme in your invitation.  In addition, add any special requirements such as if there is a dress code as far as the theme (e.g. sledding party you would want everyone to have proper gear, roller skating, bring them if you have them, dress up parties and costume parties, pirates, e.t.c.)

Invitations should be sent out no later then two weeks prior to the grand event.  The delivering of the party invitations can sometimes be a bit tricky especially if your child is hand delivering them at school.  Those not invited may feel jilted and have hurt feelings.  One suggestion is that you ask the teacher to put the individual cards in the appropriate student’s book bag at the end of the day, or if your child is old enough, ask that they discreetly hand them out and why.  Mailing the invitations is another option but if you do not have all the guest home addresses, it may not be plausible.

Schools do not freely hand out other students home addresses without prior permission from the parent.

There is always the option of sending E-vites invitations via email but you can risk them not always necessarily being picked up in time.  Make sure to always include a RSVP within the invitation, the time the party starts and ends, if gifts are not required, state that as well.  A week before the party, call anyone who has yet to RSVP.  When dealing with children they can be known for misplacing things that are to be given to their parents.

A parent may have not responded because they were not even aware event.  Approximately two or three days before the party confirm the total headcount that will be attending.  This will help you to know if you may have to pick up a few more items.
