Certainly lots of colored cardboard, glitter and clue and having an old fashioned craft night in makes for beautiful, and personal treasured birthday party invitations.
Completing and mailing birthday party invitations is an unwelcome chore. No wonder parents are tempted to streamline the process by personally handing out birthday party invitations at school.
The general colour for a themed birthday-party-set for girls is pink, and for boys it is generally blue. The party-sets for girls have lots of flowers, hearts and sweets while that for boys have swords, stickers, tattoos, toy guns, and balls, etc.
But, the question is how to make birthday parties electrifying and fun packed? Birthday gifts, decorative cakes and attractive invitation cards are a must for a birthday party and these effects make every birthday party the same in one way or the other, which eventually makes it mind-numbing and monotonous.
When my younger daughter Hannah was in preschool, I noticed that parents would tuck birthday party invitations into the children's open cubby squares. Though this method did not present a problem when all children in a class were invited to a party, when some youngsters were invited and others were not - particularly when the invitations were in brightly colored envelopes - it was all-too-clear to the ones not invited that there was no envelope in their cubbyhole. In the preschool years, it's better for parents to hand the invitations directly to the other parents or caregivers. Or, if that's not possible due to work schedules, to bite the bullet and mail them. Better yet, to email the invitations if that's an agreeable alternative.
