In the age of Facebook, snapchat, and Instagram why not just tag your friends in a post? Or, send a quick selfie on Facebook inviting your friends to your birthday party?
It seems easier, right? But that doesn’t mean you need to do it…
Actually, we believe the party invitation is the MOST special part of the party planning!
Everyone loves to receive a personalised invitation.
It makes them feel special and tells the guest that you have thought about them when writing the invite…
And, you want your guests to feel special, right?
So, let’s talk about ways to make your party invitations stand out from the crowd for your kids’ birthday!
Why Do You Need a Party Invitation?
Like we said, in the age of social media and constantly being connected online, it seems old-fashioned to send an invitation with the date, time, and place…
I mean, we can just create a note on our phone? Or, set a reminder?
Well, that’s exactly why a party invitation DOES matter!
When our lives are so busy with new information, checking emails, and running errands for the house, it can easy to forget about the small things, like your neighbour’s birthday party next week…
And, we don’t blame you.
Living in the fast-paced world of the 21st Century is difficult, and that’s why we’re here to help…
We want to make it easier for YOU!
So, trust us when we say that you should prioritise making party invites.
You’ll thank us later when your child is beaming with happiness when all their friends turn up for the party!
How To Make a Party Invite Special?
Now, let’s talk about how to make party invites just that little bit more special, shall we?
1. Miniature Invites
Little ones love to open presents. That’s a fact. So, why not make the party invite a mini present?
You can wrap it up with nice paper, some glitter, and deliver them to their houses…
Plus, they look so incredibly cute!

2. Cotton Candy Invites
Kids love presents. But, do you know what they love more? Sweets!
This cotton candy invite combines the best of both worlds: sweets and presents.
Just make sure the kids don’t eat the cotton (it just looks like candy, but it’s all an illusion!)
