Jingle, mingle, and mix—cocktails, that is. Pour an overflowing cup of eggnog, an effervescent champagne spritzer, or your own favorite holiday tipple and have your guests get into the spirit(s) with very merry online or paper Christmas party invitations.
If you’re the kind of traditionalist who parties on all 12 days of Christmas, get outfitted for every step in your holiday marathon with invitations that’ll make your parties the toast of Bethlehem (or Bedford Falls). There are partridges in pear trees a-plenty along with plenty of other winter foliage. In addition to her signature botanicals, Rifle Paper Co.’s Anna Bond has illustrated Christmas party invitations with every seasonal treat from mandarin gift baskets to shimmering wintry garlands. Should you prefer to keep the festivities fully indoors, light the hearth, warm some wassail, and invite your favorite people to get rosy-cheeked with invitations inspired by holiday sweaters, Christmas stockings, and other winter warmers. Keep the evening from getting too soppy with designs featuring Santa’s little helpers getting up to hijinx worthy of the naughty list—including can-canning candy canes, extra fresh gingerbread men, and a veritable convention of sozzled Santas.
If you’re throwing a sparkling holiday gala, choose an invitation stamped in silver and gold foil—and don’t forget to hire the sleigh valet. Design options from staples in fine entertaining like Kelly Wearstler, Jonathan Adler, and kate spade new york bring a decorator’s eye to classic holiday touchstones. For the most rarefied events, opt for engraving, letterpress, or thermography and 100% cotton paper for a distinctly tactile finish to your design.
Whether you’re ringing in the holiday with silver bells, red and white candy canes, or mulled burgundy, our online design tool lets you customize your invitation to match the festivities. Pick out your favorite fonts and type colors to go alongside a patterned envelope liner or add a bit more of your own style with photo invitations that let you incorporate a snapshot of the year that was. For charitable or corporate events, add your group’s logo to the design or even upload a completed invitation design to one of our templates. If you don’t have your own designers at the ready, our Personal Design Services team can craft a fully custom design for your party with original artwork that fits your needs perfectly.
Our online tools take care of the drudgery of party planning and let you concentrate on the most important parts of hosting your Christmas party—drinks and decor. Track your guests’ RSVPs online and send any last-minute messages to attendees and the regretful alike. If you’ve opted to host your event with paper invitations instead, order pre-addressed envelopes: we can print your return address as well as individual recipients’ addresses directly on your envelopes to spare yourself any repetitive hand-copying. When the jingle hop’s concluded, post photos of the night before in an online gallery. They’re a warm memory to hold onto during the chilly days ahead and make great fodder for future holiday greetings.
You’re sending out Christmas cards, too, we hope. Take a look through our holiday card selection—including photo, silver and gold foiled, and folded holiday and New Year cards for those who missed the Christmas deadline.
