There is no shortage of super cute invitations on the market today. I’d venture to say it’s a pretty saturated market, actually. With enough advanced notice you can get party invitations for your children that rival what you might have seen on an episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. If you don’t want to spend quite that much, you can still get something that is professional, personalized and just as good of quality as a wedding invitation.
But here’s the problem: you need to PLAN, and usually at least 2 months in advance to account for printing time and then getting the invites in the mail so that your guests have reasonable notice (unless, of course, you want to pay those rush fees). I’m all for planning (three cheers for “to do” lists!). But I’m also aware the life happens, and you get busy, distracted or things just come up so that you need to make adjustments to exactly how your planned celebrations might need to be executed. Maybe you have to change themes because you didn’t consider the fact that beach party decor might be tough to find in November. Or maybe you have to change the location because your guest list suddenly doubles when you remember to invite all the kids in Sunday school. Or maybe you have to cancel the venue you had reserved due to some unexpected house repairs that come up and move the party to your house. All of these things can very easily happen. And of course, you could just wait until the last minute to make any of the plans as some people are inclined to do (honestly, how do you sleep at night?!) 😉
Whatever the situation, Fiddle-de-de Kids Invites and Thank Your Cards by SanLori have got you covered. They come in a wide variety of themes and are all fill-in-the-blank, which makes planning so much easier for you!
I chose the You Who! invites and matching thank you cards. They are totally precious and while you could have a theme with these (owls, forest animals, animals in general), you can also NOT have a theme, which is a big plus for me, the totally non-crafty and not-at-all creative mama. Whatever happened to just having some cake and ice cream and playing some games and laughing and playing? That’s the kind of kid’s birthday party I throw. No theme required (although I do enjoy reading about all those cute theme ideas, so crafty mamas, keep blogging away about them!).
I want to encourage you to check out SanLori for every occasion you have that requires party invitations. From baby showers to birthdays, they’ve got you covered!
