People often send save-the-date invitations for important upcoming events, parties and other gatherings. With schedules becoming busier and families involved in more activities, save-the-date invitations and reminders are becoming more common for many events, including birthday parties.
Magnets double as a save-the-date reminder and a party favor. Many American refrigerators are home to a few magnets. Placing a save-the-date note on a magnet gives guests a new refrigerator decoration as well as a daily reminder that the party is coming. This idea works well for those who wish to send the save-the-date birthday reminder a few months before the actual event. This way, the card is less likely to be lost in the everyday shuffle of busy schedules.
Use pictures to create save-the-date cards for a birthday. This works well for younger birthdays, such as an infant turning 1. Simply print an image of the birthday person and write the information on the back of the picture. This save-the-date idea will serve as a keepsake for friends and family long after the birthday is celebrated.
Many people are connected through social media. Using Facebook, send save-the-date notifications by creating a group event. Sign up for a Facebook account by going to facebook.com and filling out the required fields. When the account is set up, find the "events" tab on the left side of the screen. Click on the tab and find the "create an event" tab at the top. Click this tab and follow the prompts to send save-the-date notifications.
Online Card Creators
Vistaprint.com, Hallmark and 123print.com offer online card creators which allow individuals to design their own cards. There is a fee for cards, but all three sites offer many options for save-the-date reminders. There are programs to download and a large price range for cards. The sites allow a card designer to choose a template or start from scratch. Use these sites to create, send and receive save-the-date birthday party cards.
