We’ll dish on our secret recipe for low-maintenance dinner parties: it starts with great online party invitations. If you’re like us, it’s been way too long since you have seen your best pals, so grab a plate, make some snacks, and invite your friends for some carbs and conversation (even if just virtually). We have party invitation templates for every setting and style, from festive baby shower invitations to formal holiday party invitations.
How to make party invitations
Spice things up and get your group together anytime with a casual Flyer you can make yourself. They are the easiest party invitation templates around. Create online party invitations faster than you can preheat your oven. Use our online Flyer templates and grab guests’ attention with GIFs, stickers, and text effects and then quickly share with all of your friends via text, email, or social media. With Flyer, happy hour just got mobile. You can create and send your online party invitation from your phone. So take this birthday bash to the roof or the backyard, grab a can and a mini bottle of booze, garnish and get moving.
When to send party invitations
Other than deciding on a date or theme, the hardest party of planning is typically figuring out how far in advance to send party invitations. A good rule of thumb is to send around 4 weeks before the party for casual hangouts, and around six to eight weeks for formal parties. Throwing a surprise birthday party? Send a little earlier than this timeline to ensure everyone knows the plan.
What to put on party invitations
If you’re throwing a casual party, there aren’t too many rules you need to follow with what you put on your party invitations. Just make sure to include the date, time, address, and a dress code if applicable. Other than that, feel free to get creative with it!
Pick a theme for your Zoom party
Don’t have a reason to get people together, we can give you one! Because frankly, needing a reason to party is so passé. We believe “just because” is enough to get your best people together. Plan a 90s theme party, a boozy Zoom brunch with virtual brunch invitations, start a cookbook book club, host a groovy game night, or throw a 80's themed party potluck. These laid-back get-togethers prove you don’t need a holiday for an excuse to party. Once you’ve found the perfect party invitation for your get-together (in person or virtual), let Paperless Post’s online tools do the hard work. Our smart technology helps you stay organized with sophisticated RSVP tracking pages, guest messaging features, and follow-up tools. Once all the fun is all said and done, send an online thank you note for taking the time to get together. It’s that easy!
Party in the great outdoors
Planning to entertain outdoors? Get your SPF on—summer-perfect festivities, that is. Actually, get the sunscreen, too and head to our blog for our top tips for pulling off an easy party outside. We don’t only offer amazing invite designs and party invitation templates, but also tips on how to host an effortless outdoor party. Because hosting a great dinner party, particularly one in the summer, doesn’t have to be about perfection. Gather in the garden or go for a bucket of beers and cheese dip. Snacks on the beach, wine not? Ask everyone to bring their favorite bottle for an impromptu wine tasting. It should be about simplicity, having fun and being present. Too busy to make something extravagant for dinner? Proudly, serve snacks for dinner! Whether summer means meals al fresco or dining under the AC, we have the perfect invitation for your next dinner party. Browse Dinner Parties.
