Rescue your friends from their morning-after stupor or just give them a good reason to get up early on the weekend. A festive brunch needs no excuse, but it’s a wonderful reason to pour mimosas or micheladas. Throw an expectant gal-pal a baby shower with brunch invitations featuring cute nursery accoutrements. Fete your bridesmaids with a ladies’ luncheon before the big day or make your wedding shower an easy-going brunch. If what you’re really doing is planning an after-afterparty with food, we have brunch invitation designs fit for your rollicking menu. Your guests will likely be looking for a quick pick-me-up, so choose an invitation that foregrounds a hot cup of coffee or a refined pour of tea. A champagne brunch needs a bit of visual sparkle, too, so choose an invitation with a bottle of bubbly or shimmering metallic accents. Not all lunches are liquid, though, so you might try serving up an invitation decorated in illustrated (and completely guilt-free) breakfast foods.
Once the menu’s set, use the online design tool to add any personal garnishes to your brunch invitation—a new backdrop, your favorite type colors, or even a patterned envelope liner. Your guest list can be just as well-curated. Put together your favorite party people with the online address book—you’ll find past co-revelers and you can import names from your personal email account, too. Our smart RSVP tracking lets you keep a close eye on any potentially empty places at the table, and messaging tools let you inform your guests of any day-of specials. When the last guest goes stumbling home, you can post a few pictures of the big brunch in your event’s online gallery—provided your guests are photo-ready, of course.
Brunch is a state of mind, not just an hour on the clock. When the sun goes down, though, you can call it dinner. Start the festivities with dinner party invitations and other ideas for general entertaining.
