Personalised Party Invitations that ‘set the scene’
With beautiful typefaces, colours and a huge array of exclusive illustrations, our personalised party invitations can work for any theme, from a Champagne & Shepherd’s Pie Evening to a Summer Masquerade Ball or Burn’s Night Supper. This means our invites help you set the theme of your party early – piquing the invitee’s interest, encouraging their involvement in the theme and adding your personal touch.
With over 700 exclusive illustrations by British artists, there is a perfect illustration for each and every occasion. For example, you could select a marquee for a 21st birthday party with fireworks, or an Aga illustration for a fun evening wine tasting with your feet up in front of the fire with friends. Imagine the excitement in the weeks leading up to your special occasion with your beautiful personalised invitation on your closest friends’ desks and mantelpieces. This is why our tag line is ‘The best parties begin with HoneyTree’.
Personalised bespoke invitations – for every family occasion
For a family birthday party, a landmark birthday occasion or christening, our premium personalised invitations will provide your friends and family with all the information they need about your event – the date, time and venue, plus don’t forget to include contact details, dress code (if required), RSVP deadline and to whom your guests are to reply to. And lastly, do include in the information if there is an indication of when the party has to end e.g. ‘carriages at midnight’. This way, taxis, chauffeurs and babysitting arrangements can all be seamlessly planned without having to refer back to the hosts.
With our personalised party invitations, ‘bespoke’ means just that. Choose the illustration that suits your party; then pick the perfect wording for your audience. Add as little or as much as you need to get the message across. Then it’s just a case of ensuring the little cards find their way through friends and family’s letter boxes.
Plan your timings for ordering luxury bespoke invitations
From experience, it is advisable to order your invitations well in advance, particularly if you are planning a party around a special time of the year as there may be some competition for the date, especially during the summer months or key calendar dates like Easter and Christmas.
We suggest that invitations are sent out seven weeks before the event and as we have a 4 – 6 business day turnaround on personalised invitation stationery, (a Next Day Express Delivery option is also available) we suggest that you think about ordering your invites at least two months in advance of your party.
When designing and ordering your personalised party invitations, it’s also important to allow three to four week window for your guests to ‘RSVP’. This will give them enough time to make arrangements but also give you, or your party caterer, time to be advised of the final numbers.
This also provides the opportunity to activate a reserve list should any of your initial choice guests be unable to attend. That’s why we suggest ordering a few ‘spares’ for this eventuality, or to send to guests who you know probably won’t be able to attend, but would appreciate the gesture and thought of receiving a formal invitation.
Which illustrations work best on premium personalised invites?
When it comes to picking your personalised invitations, we are confident that you’ll enjoy choosing and sending the perfect card for your party – we have hundreds of different classic and illustrated designs for every occasion.
During the Victorian era, births and christenings were announced by sending the mother’s own visiting card announcing the arrival of a baby. What a wonderfully symbolic gesture.
Here at HoneyTree we love that link to tradition and believe in the ceremony of writing and sending a personalised invitation as a special event in itself. That’s why we’ve made creating your own personalised party invitations online so easy. We believe our artists and designers’ illustrations are so rich, fabulous and varied that will there not only be an illustration ideal for any party, but that they will also inspire ideas for the fun celebration in itself. Choose from quirky bunting for your beachcomber’s barbecue party invites; champagne bubbles for your Black Tie Ball bespoke invitations; or a pretty marquee for those summer engagement invitations.
And if you’re short of inspiration on what to say in your personalised printed text or how to reply to formal party invitations, just take a look at our hints & tips for invitations and announcements.
Each of our personalised party invitation cards come pre-filled with wording suggestions at the ordering stage, but as our designs are bespoke, you can choose you own wording, editing and tweaking to suit your theme, your taste and your own personal writing style. But if you’re stuck on the proper wording, our invitations are the perfect place to start with pleasantly worded invites that only need you to change the date, time and location of the celebration or gathering and the name of the host or invitee.
