We are celebrating our younger son’s birthday in several weeks, and while planning the party I found myself questioning – paper vs. online invitations. Every year for both children I have chosen paper invitations, because let’s face it, few things in life are as charming and time-honored as receiving something in the mail. Whether it’s a card from a friend or an invitation, it’s so wonderful to see a brightly colored envelope amidst a stack of letters and bills. However, this year has been pretty busy and our go-to stationery designer is on hiatus, so I decided to turn to my favorite online invitation and stationery source, Paperless Post.
G loves all things animals, especially jungle, and so we chose Meri Meri’s “Go Wild” theme for party decorations. A precious collection fit for a jungle loving little one, it features oversized palm leaf napkins, adorable orange tiger plates, a toucan studded banner, bright green alligator platter, snake noise makers, and matching party favor bags. You can imagine my delight when I stumbled upon Paperless Post’s invitation designed by Meri Meri that coordinates with the decor – too perfect for words!
I’m sure many of you are ahead of the curve when it comes to sending online invites, but if you’ve never done it, let me tell you Paperless Post makes it a piece of cake. You pick your design (they have countless, beautiful options), customize the invite, upload your guest list and hit send. Easy peasy my friends! A big bonus for me was the immediate RSVPs, as with paper invites I’m always chasing down responses from a few guests. Plus, being able to tally the headcount on the tracking page has made planning that more organized.
Cheers to party planning in the digital age and I encourage you to give Paperless Post a try!
