Inviting Invitations Set the Tone for Entertaining

Invitations are an essential element of the holiday season, not only because they allow your guests to keep track of weeks of events, but also because they help set the tone for your party long before it begins. Whether you are throwing a semi-formal cocktail party or a casual holiday drop-in, the invitation you choose should reflect both your intention and your personality.

If the standard fill-in invitations found in stores don't tickle your fancy, here are a few of our favorites from a variety of talented Etsy sellers:

  • Snowflakes Pressed: this lovely letterpress invitation from Letterpress Light captures the sparkly magic of New Years Eve.
  • Ugly Sweater Party: anyone getting this invitation by j&paper in the mail is sure to crack a smile and start digging in the closet. We also love the Swimsuits and Santa Hats invitation for those of you in warmer climes.
  • Byzantine Holiday: these invitations by shopkeylimedesign feature classic ornaments updated with modern colors for a more sophisticated feel.
  • Mod Turkey: the folksy turkey on these customizable invitations from lukecommasara invokes warm feelings of a family get-together.
  • Peacock Baby Shower: this fabulous invitation by Chrissy Watson is ideal for parents-to-be who love mid-century modern design.
  • Ornament Invitation: These unique invitations from umama143 are dual-use; they help keep your friends' fridges clutter-free while also adding to their holiday decor.
  • Library Card Invitation: this creative invitation by socialcircles is perfect for any booklover, and could easily be transformed to celebrate any special event.
