Send Out Invites

Although online invitations are perfectly acceptable for last-minute get-togethers, there's nothing quite like a mailed invitation to set the tone for a party and build anticipation for the fun in store. There are plenty of online stationery companies offering chic well-designed invitation designs, or you can get creative and make your own.
