A cocktail party needs no excuse—it’s a fantastic opportunity to dig out some of the more recherché spirits in your bar cart, polish the good glassware, and have some friends over for a tipple or four. Whether it’s cognac in the study or Sidecars in the den, make your next party the toast of the town with our cocktail party invitations.
Browse party-ready designs decorated with classic highballs and bar accessories or opt for something simple like celebratory confetti dots, festive painted patterns, or vivid florals. For a more stately affair, choose a bold typographic design and gild the lily with a touch of gold, silver, or rose gold foil-stamping. Themed events like Tiki nights or Southwestern-inspired fiestas are well-represented in our collection, and in high style, no less. The holidays make a great excuse to have guests over for drinks, and that applies to any marked day on the calendar. Summon the spirits with a Halloween cocktail party invitation design, or bring the wassailing indoors with a Christmas cocktail party invitation. If you stretch it, one’s big four-oh could qualify—so discover a 40th birthday cocktail party invitation while you’re at it. If you’re looking for a little inspiration, decorative or otherwise, choose a design from experienced hosts like Oscar de la Renta or Kelly Wearstler. You’re sure to find an invitation that’s dressed up with cocktail-attire panache but far from buttoned-down.
Once you’ve selected a design that suits your event, use our online design tool to customize the invitation to your exacting specifications. We supply some cocktail party invitation wording, but we think that you know your theme (and your thirst) better than us—so go ahead, mix and match. After you’ve chosen your favorite party people and drafted the guest list, track RSVPs and send messages to your attendees about party essentials like potential conversation topics or hangover cures—we’re sure they’ll appreciate the advice.
They’ll feel similarly amused by the online gallery of party photos you post the morning after. Your guests might need some reminders about how much fun they had the night before (if they can’t quite recall it), and it just might help them figure out where they left their cufflinks.
A good cocktail party knows no season, but if you’re looking to celebrate a specific holiday or throw a themed event, browse our collection of invitations to dinner parties, barbecues and picnics, beach and pool parties, and events for the winter, summer, spring, and fall.
