When to send 13th birthday party invitations

Your child's 13th birthday party is probably all they have been thinking about for months, and you want as many people as possible to make it and celebrate the big day with them. To have the best chance of a great turnout, you must send the invitations at the perfect time!

A well-timed 13th birthday party invitation allows guests to plan their schedule around your party and gives them more time to rearrange clashing events (if necessary). For ultimate success, send your invitations out at least three weeks before the celebration. This will give everybody time to prepare themselves for the festivities.

Decorating for a 13th birthday party

A 13th birthday party is a perfect excuse to pull out all of the stops when it comes to party decor. Go all out and create a themed wonderland that will have them be the talk of the classroom for weeks to come!

Whether you are hosting a small get-together or the whole neighborhood is in on the action, there is limitless potential when it comes to the world of decor. Help your child decide on the perfect theme for their party, and then consider how to make their ideas come to life. Search for decor items that amplify the concept, or try your hand at creative craft tutorials you've hunted down on Pinterest. Let your imagination run wild, and decorate your venue to the nines!

Wondering where you can find decorations that seamlessly fit with the theme of your 13th birthday party invitations? Look no further than Paperless Post Party Shop, a treasure trove full to the brim with spectacular decorations and dazzling party favors. Find everything you need to create an atmosphere fit for a newfound teen!

Thanking guests for attending your teen’s birthday party

Once everyone has headed home and the buzz of the day is dying down, consider creating thank-you cards to show guests how much their attendance meant to your child. If your 13-year-old loved the process of designing their invitation, why not give them a round two where they can select and create their thank you cards? Get them to add a heartfelt message to the template, so their guest knows how much they are appreciated.
