Hi-ho! I am knee-deep planning a Christmas party for my ward (church group) for about 250 people. I am a little stressed, not gonna lie, but luckily I have lots of helpers! Our party is super early (December 5th) so I wanted to get the invitations done this week. In the event that you too are looking for inspiration for a Christmas party theme, I am here to share the invitations with you today.
This is what our finished invitations looked like (personal details were altered). Whether its a ward party, work party, children’s birthday party or neighborhood gathering these invitations can be edited to fit your needs. Just download the file and open it in an editing program (free and user friendly ones include picasa & picmonkey). Have them printed as a 4X6 at Walmart (they give out free envelopes if you ask nicely!) or Costco (best quality & pricing).
There are two different template options so choose the one you like and click the download button below. Then you can just add text in any photo editing software or site (like picmonkey or canva<— there’s a canva tutorial saved to my Instagram highlights). If you would prefer to not hassle with all the editing yourself, I can also personalize these invitations for your event for a flat fee of $5. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with event details if you are interested in doing that.
2017 UPDATE: As this is my most popular order please assist me by making sure all the following information is included in your email request: date, time, location, ward or organization name (if applicable), attire notes if desired, and any other information you would like included. I always try to get a proof back to you as quickly as my schedule allows (usually within 24 hours) for you to review. I can also make it into a poster size (transfers best to a 20X30) for an additional $5 if you are interested in that.
And stay tuned for LOTS more Polar Express ideas & printables!! I am not sure of all our party details just yet but I did order this hat on Amazon for our “conductor” to wear, it came and is PERFECT! I was really surprised to find one for such a great price!
I’ve got my eye on this train whistle as well- gotta have the sound effects, right?!
As I make things for the party I will try to get them up on the blog, so follow along on pinterest or facebook if you want to stay up to date on my ideas/printables- thanks! What are you doing to get in the Christmas mood this year?
