Party in the great outdoors—or at least in the backyard. Plan a brilliant al fresco affair with lawn games and mojitos or get everyone together for a bona fide pig pull with picnic invitations and bbq invitations. No matter how you’re entertaining, lay out a bit of checkerboard on your invitations. If you’d prefer to entice your guests with a few of the day’s specials, send a design that shows off a slice of watermelon, boiled corn on the cob, or a sizzling burger fresh from the flames. Let everybody know if you’re planning to fire up the grill with an invitation featuring your hibachi set-up or an illustrated porky pal. BBQ baby showers can find a design that sets a celebratory mood in nursery hues. For guests who prefer dessert as their main course, let them know that time’s-a-wasting with a sort of summer hourglass—an invitation with a melting popsicle posed just out of reach. Celebrations in a more maritime mode will do well with nautical designs made for clambakes and lobster boils.
Whatever feast you’re planning, you’ll find an invitation that fits your outdoor setting, to say nothing of your menu. You’ll still be in control of every last detail with the online design tool. Put a little extra color in your invitation’s type or pick out entirely new fonts for your message. Gingham and nautical stripes have a place on more than just your table—you can choose a patterned backdrop or envelope liner, too. Your invitation is sure to charm your guests into attendance, and our RSVP tracking makes it easy to know just who’s ready for a bit of fun in the sun. Last-minute addenda and BYOBs can be taken care of with guest messaging. Once the ants come for your picnic’s leftovers, make a few memories of the day and post choice portraits in the event’s online photo gallery. Then, take a look at our spring and summer entertaining invitations and start the party all over again.
