Crash the red carpet from the comfort of your couch—and go ahead, put on your pajamas far from the prying eyes of the style police. Start the pre-show commentary with viewing party invitations for your Grammy, Emmy, or Oscar party. The first topic for gossip will naturally be outfits, so find a few invitations that feature stunning red carpet looks from yesteryear—whether your vision of past glamour is Audrey in Givenchy or Bjork in swan. The second item (though no less important) will naturally be the drink menu. Set everyone’s party expectations at appropriately high heights with champagne-themed Oscar party invitations.
If glamour is not your style but local sports-team jerseys are, consider a julep-accented Kentucky Derby design or a football invitation featuring domestic drafts (in advance of the NFL draft) for a sports viewing party. Or, for those planning a private screening of a favorite flick, capture a little cinematic magic with designs that feature the low lights and comfortable stadium seating of your local matinee—including a few options designed by kate spade new york and Kelly Wearstler.
No matter what kind of TV viewing party you’re hosting, you’ll have plenty of ways to adjust the set. Use the online design tool to find new fonts for your message and add a backdrop or patterned envelope liner to your online invitation. When you’ve finished designing, mount the velvet rope and plan your guest list. Adding names is simple—find past party attendees in the online address book or import your webmail contacts to save your assistant from taking dictation. No need to have your assistant follow up, either. Smart online RSVP tracking and guest messaging keeps you abreast of all your guests’ planned arrivals. When you and your pals have finished toasting and roasting the talent, you can post a few behind the scenes snapshots in your event’s online gallery. Don’t worry, they’re for you and your pals’ eyes only—Mr. Blackwell wasn’t invited.
