How to make a thanksgiving invitation

If you’re all about the goodies, choose a Thanksgiving invitation featuring some of your favorite things, like pumpkin pie, turkey, and (of course) cranberry sauce. Think of it as a way to wet the appetites of your guests. Of course, you can always choose to divide and conquer the work sending a Thanksgiving potluck invitation that encourages family and friends to bring their most famous dishes—or favorite store-bought treats. If you’re someone who puts more effort into the table decor than the food itself (no judgment here), entice your guests to join with a Thanksgiving invitation template artfully decorated with images of harvest greenery, modern cornucopias, or seasonal patterns. And if you’re someone who knows the day will be food second and football first, there are templates to suit your tastes as well. Whether you keep things fun and lighthearted (hello, puns) or elegant and modern, your Thanksgiving dinner invitation lets everyone know just what to expect.

Thanksgiving invitation wording

Planning a few pre- or post-dinner activities? Prepare your guests for a turkey trot plus after-dinner games (or just watching the football game) with a Thanksgiving dinner invitation and personal message. With the help of our online design tools, you can amend your invitation wording, edit the colors, fonts, and typesetting, and pick out a new digital backdrop and envelope liner for your online delivery. We also make it easy for them to RSVP—and easy for you to focus on the dinner prep—with our online attendance tracker. If there’s a change in their plans, they can easily inform you with a private message.

Fall is for feasting, but the upcoming holidays will give you plenty of opportunities to mingle. Browse our Friendsgiving invitations to start getting ideas for Thanksgiving flyers to invite your closest friends.

How to turn down a thanksgiving invitation

We recommend you politely decline a Thanksgiving invitation in the medium that you were invited. Meaning if the host called you, you should call them back. If they texted you, you can text them back. Regardless of the medium, thank them for the gracious invitation, give them your conflict or reasoning (keep it short and sweet), and let them know you look forward to the next time you can all be together. You can also send one of our Thanksgiving cards, wishing your host a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday season.
