5 Creative Birthday Party Invitations

Print Friendly

Do you always seem to have an invitation to a kid’s birthday party hanging to your fridge with a magnet?

When it comes to your own kids’ party, make the invitation stand out by being inspired by one of these ideas:

  1. I saw these custom balloons which were sent with a note to ‘inflate’ the balloon and I thought they were super cute..
    You could make your own with a sharpie but don’t plan to write too much. Inflate teh balloon, get one person to keep it closed with their fingers while you write. Then, let go and chase it around the room while it deflates….
    OR: You could have a balloon company print them up for you if you give them enough notice.
  2. Borrowing from Number 1 … Have a beach theme party. Buy a bunch of beach balls, blow them up – write the invitation on the ball, deflate it and deliver the balls.
  3. Buy blank puzzles at art shops, make sure the puzzle is put together, then write the invitation on it. Undo the puzzle and send in an envelope.
    You could even have a photo of the birthday girl/boy printed onto a puzzle at most photo shops.
  4. If you’re having a fairy princess or disco party you could put stick-on earrings, nail art stickers, glitter or a tiara or wings in with the invitation.
  5. Even if you’re hiring an official entertainer or venue, you don’t HAVE to use their supplied invitations. We recently had a reptile party for Charlotte’s 9th birthday but the invitations they supplied were too busy and didn’t suit. I found a photo of Charlotte with a snake around her neck from a zoo we attended, and we made our own invitations.

What are the most remarkable birthday party invitations you’ve seen?

    We created a powerpoint show invitation with photos and animations all through it and emailed it out to everyone (if you save it as a powerpoint show then it will start automatically when they double click on it).
    I also get all the kids to lie on the floor in a circle on their backs with their heads altogether, stand on the lounge and take an aerial photo of them. I then quickly drop a “thanks for coming to my party” using wordart onto it, print them onto photo paper and give them out as they’re all leaving!

    These are some great tips… and dont forget to add something about postprocess because if its a little different it’ll stay in people’s memory even longer (ie. try black and white – but you might want a second camera for that…)
