Throw an auspicious celebration every zodiac year with lucky and lovely Chinese New Year invitations. No matter the animal on display, a red envelope is always in style—so make sure the invitation lives up to its packaging. Set a beautifully traditional table with red Lunar New Year designs inspired by embroidery, fine lacquerware, and other traditional tabletop fixtures. For tables that aren’t complete without a floral arrangement, designs with a shower of peach blossoms make a lovely accompaniment to your festivities. If you’d prefer to focus on what’s being served, send a gracious (and delicious) token of your esteem with an invitation decorated in mandarins or clementines. No sour faces here. Regardless of what year or what animal is being celebrated, you’ll find designs featuring the appropriate zodiac mascot, illustrated in elegant linework or a cuter style. For readers or admirers of traditional Chinese, opt for the bold elegance of bluepoolroad’s modern typographic style.
However you choose to toast the Lunar New Year, the online design tool will help you put a few finishing touches on your invitation. Add a touch of red and gold anywhere from font colors to online backdrop to envelope liner. Spread the wealth widely and assemble your guest list with the online address book. It’s stocked with past party invitees, but you can fill it with imported webmail contacts to make sure no one misses out on the firecrackers. Make doubly sure of that with RSVP tracking and guest messaging—you can even send a few gentle reminders to those who haven’t marked their attendance or opened their invitation yet. When the night’s over, share a few photos of everyone in their scarlet finery in a smart online gallery.
Your Chinese New Year party may be the peak of the winter season, but make sure to send good fortune to those who couldn’t stop by. Send Lunar New Year cards to share the luck with your nearest and dearest and far-flung friends and relatives alike, and then start planning for the last (hopefully!) of the winter entertaining season.
