The first birthday party invitation is the first step to planning a very important event in your baby's life so some thought and consideration should go into choosing them and sending them. Here are some tips and ideas for choosing and sending your first birthday party invitations:
Decide on a First Birthday Party Invitation Type
There are three popular options when it comes to first birthday invitations: pre-made, homemade, and photo invites. Pre-made ones are the type you can get prepackaged at the store. You just fill them out and send them off. Homemade take a lot more time and effort but the results are worth it. Go to a craft supply store and get some card making supplies and get creative! If its photo invites you want, you can do them yourself if you have a good photo editing program or you can find some one to do it on the internet for you.
Give Party Guests Enough Advanced Warning
Try to mail out invitations at least four to six weeks before the date of your first birthday party. This should give your party guests enough fair warning so that they don't make other plans for that day. Be sure to give them an RSVP by date if you want to get an accurate headcount for buying food and supplies.
Save a Keepsake Invitation for Baby
Be sure to order or make one extra invitation so that you can use it to create a keepsake for your baby. Put it in their baby book or time capsule or frame it nicely and hang it in their room for them. It will be a cute memento for them when they are older.
The first birthday party invitation decisions will be some of the first you make when you are planning baby's first birthday party so be sure to start thinking about what you want early enough.
