A house warming party is an exciting time to celebrate your achievement with friends and family. A housewarming party, a way to create good energy in a new space, can be as much fun as it is work. Although completing your unpacking and painting will be hard, putting together your party invitations should be easy.
Electronic invitations are a quick way to get the message out to friends and family members about your party. There are several free Web sites that offer colorful house warming party invitations. All you need are your friends' e-mail addresses and party information. An automated RSVP system keeps you updated on whose attending. It's all done electronically, so you save trees as well.
Photo invitations are a helpful choice, as not only do they give the party information, they may also show the new house to those who can't make it.
Take pictures of your new home with your digital camera and upload to your computer. Using desktop publishing software, such as Microsoft Publisher or Print Explosion, open a flier or greeting card template. Follow the software instructions to insert the pictures of your new home onto the document. Include party information and some clip art to make the invitation more festive.
For the skilled computer user, you can make a photo collage of your new place to use as your artwork on the invitation. Take pictures of some of the special features of your new home, including an unusual window, your address numbers, flowers or anything else that stands out about your new place. Use photo software, such as Photoshop or Pixelmator, to create a collage or insert the variety of your images on the document and resize to different sizes and shapes. You can also show images of the packing or unpacking and painting as well, giving a full look at your experiences.
Use a host of famous quotes about homes on your invitation cover to create an artful and unexpected invitation. Go beyond the typical "Home is where the heart is," or "Home is home, be it ever so humble," and search for more obscure references like "A comfortable house is a great source of happiness. It ranks immediately after health and a good conscience." by Sydney Smith.
Gather many different quotes from online sources and type the text into your desktop publishing software card or flier template. After adding the quotes, change each one to a different font, size and color to create an interesting graphic look. Complete the invitation with party information and mail.
