Be Creative with Themes

This is where most of the creativity should come in. Come up with a theme you think is perfect for you or maybe just something that has not been ever done before. Themes will help your sample invitation deviate itself from the rest out there. After doing so, you are all set to start designing your own party invitation.

Based on the theme that you have chosen, choose photos that go perfectly with it. These photos will either serve as your background or your design elements. For example, you have planned to organize or celebrate any party with a prince or princess theme, with this in mind, you have to find images of different princesses, tiaras, castles, and so on. Basically, anything that related to your theme. After you have acquired all these different images, lay them out accordingly and depending on how you wish to present your party invitation. You can maybe put the castle in either bottom corner or center or a beautiful princess twirling her ball gown around in the middle side. There is so much you can do here, just think creatively about how to layout the images. Avoid congesting your invitation with too many photos as it can inevitably look cluttered. We do not want that, we want a polished, streamlined, and neat invitation card.

Provide the Necessary Information

The very purpose of an invitation is to provide your guests with all the necessary information about your party and maybe a little bit about you or the person celebrating. As it is its purpose, it is important that aside from the beautiful images or photos of anything that coincides with your theme, you do not forget to also put in the basic (and very necessary) pieces of information. These pieces of information will determine your invitation card example effectivity.

Different software has type or text tools that allow you to put in different texts in your document or file. For Microsoft Word, it is very easy since this software is text or word-centered, meaning it is mostly texts or typing, hence an ample opportunity for you and an easy one to say. As with Photoshop, there is a text tool with which you can click and simply type in the text you want and confirm to validate the text you have typed in. Both software gives a lot of freedom to do whatever you want with your text, you can change the color, size, and even the font. With that said, you are given so much outlet to be creative with your blank party invitation.

These are the following necessary pieces of information that should be found in you party invitation. Name of the celebrant, date and time of the party, the address of where you will be holding your party, and some other optional information you can put in are contact information and how old the celebrant is.
