Most of us put far more thought into planning a party than we do into choosing the invitation. But holiday party invitation wording is important. It lets your guests know what to expect, how to dress, and what, if anything, to bring. Is it a formal dinner or a kid-friendly sledding party? Your invitation sets the stage and communicates all the details.
First, the details. Have you ever sent out party invitations and realized, too late, that you forgot to request a response? Or got your own address wrong? It happens all the time here at Pear Tree! Here’s a checklist of 9 things not to forget (and to double check before sending).
We know that planning a Christmas party can be stressful, but we have some helpful tips from SheKnows.com on how to ease your mind.
1. Send your Christmas party invitations out early, at least a month in advance. The holidays get busy and it’s better to have your party on everyone’s calendar as soon as you start the planning.
2. Create a budget. Nobody likes a surprise when checking out at the grocery store. A little planning will go a long way.
3. If you are preparing the food, create a menu and timeline for when you need to shop, prepare and cook everything so you can be 100% ready. Prepare as much as you can in the days leading up to the party.
