It seems like in today’s digital age it’s easy to get lost in the never-ending ability to just send an email as an invitation to an event, or write on someone’s facebook wall to thank them for something sweet they’ve done. But when it comes to planning a birthday party, there’s something sincere and truly touching when an actual invitation or thank you card is sent and received. If you’re planning a birthday party anytime soon, Cardstore has some tips for you to help make the invitation before the event feel special, and to make your thank you note for after the event the perfect reminder of why you’re so appreciative of what they’ve done.

When inviting family and friends to a birthday celebration, whether it’s for you, on behalf of a significant other, or for a little one, it’s best to send your invitation out a month in advance for a more formal party, and 2 to 3 weeks in advance if it’s an informal gathering. Include where and when the party is with clear details about the venue, whether an RSVP is needed, and information about whether dinner, drinks, snacks, etc. will be served so they can plan accordingly. Browsing Cardstore’s many birthday party invitations can help you pick a theme that you can easily decorate around as well.
Featured Cards: Confetti Thanks, Ballerina Thanks, Polka Dot Balloon Thanks
After the party, birthday thank you cards provide the perfect chance to follow up on what a great time you had celebrating with your guests. Ideally, you or the little birthday boy or girl will write the thank you card within 2 to 3 days of the party so that excitement over the gift is still at its peak. You can even pick a thank you card with room for a photo so that a photo of you enjoying their gift can be added for a personalized touch. Be sure to mention how much you appreciate that they were able to celebrate your day with you, and that you’re looking forward to using their gift throughout the year. Sent 2 to 3 days after a party, birthday thank you cards are the final step needed in making sure all rules for birthday party etiquette are perfectly followed.

Birthdays are always something worth celebrating, but when a milestone birthday year comes along it calls for special attention! Make the most of every moment by choosing a birthday card that matches the milestone and celebrates the accomplishment. Cardstore milestone birthday cards and milestone birthday invitations draw attention to the birthday year by incorporating their age into the birthday design. Use a sixteenth birthday card to celebrate a sweet 16th friend birthday bash and a new driver’s license. Send a happy 21st birthday card to celebrate their first legal drink. Invite friends and family to join with you and celebrate the big 6-0 with a sixtieth birthday invitation. Whether you’re sending a milestone birthday wish or throwing a milestone birthday party, milestone cards show the birthday recipient how important their big steps are to you.

For the past week and a half, all I’ve been craving has been corn, corn, corn. I’ve eating black bean and corn salads, corn on the cob, and have tried to put corn on everything, but I just want more, more, more! There’s something about summer and corn that go so perfectly hand in hand, and I can’t help myself but to want it 24/7. Besides eating more corn, which I plan on doing for the rest of the summer, I thought I’d focus on the fun and colorful aspect of corn for this inspiration board. Working off of a Yellow Stalk Party Photo Birthday Invitation designed by Persnickety Pear, I’ve compiled some images that remind me of the sweet, bright aspects of corn. And I hope that whole ode to corn wasn’t too corny! (I couldn’t help but to throw that in there!)
