How to Make an Attractive Invitation Card for Christmas Party

Buzzle Staff Dec 14, 2018
It would certainly be a blue Christmas without friends and family, so if you are planning a party and want all the people on the guest list to attend it, remember to send out the invitations in time.
If you are putting in time and efforts in organizing, planning, and hosting a Christmas party, you need to make sure that it is attended and enjoyed by everyone; and to make that happen, you need to ensure sending proper invitations.
In this process, it is most important to select the appropriate invitation card, have it designed according to the theme you have in mind, and mail it in time so that your guests turn up for the party.


Deciding on a theme should not pose a problem because of various websites that offer a lot of information; you could also consult members of your family.
Before you make final decision, think about the people you are planning to invite. Are they blessed with a sense of humor? Would most people be comfortable in each other's company? Once you have decided on the specific theme and drawn out a rough guest list, half of your work is done.

Drawing out a List

While drawing out the guest list, you need to ensure that there are no other events that would decrease the number of attendees to your party. Try not to organize it on Christmas day, because most people believe in celebrating Christmas with immediate members of the family.
You can arrange it on a day, when most people on the list can find it comfortable to attend. Depending on your theme and choice, you can invite your friends, colleagues, relatives, and other people you consider close to you.

Including the Location

Invitations are incomplete without the location of the event. Also, your theme would affect the choice of the venue. If it is more formal, you have to think of the location accordingly.
If you want to keep it simple, you can arrange it at your home itself. However, the choice of venue also depends on the people attending the party. Also make sure that the DJ, photographer, decorator, or any other people who bring life to the party, know about the venue, time, and date well in advance.


You could design the invitations yourself. But to do this, you would need to give yourself enough lead time, and also allow time for any last minute changes.
Since the process is time-consuming, you could also order them online. If you are designing them yourself, think about the various things mentioned earlier such as the venue, theme, people attending it, etc.

Dispatching the Cards

Once you are done with everything, you just have to post your cards. Since time is of utmost importance, send them out well in advance. Include a respond-no-later-than date, so that you know how many people will be attending it. 
Though these days many people would be sending out invitations using different channels such as social media, SMS, emails, etc.; people who follow traditional style, can find these tips useful.
