^preparing for the dinner party – I like getting ready early to have enough time before the guests arrive^
^but the first step before decorating the table and planing the menu is to create the invitation card^
^ I went on the Paperlees Post site and chose the categorie parties&entertaining – dinner party to find the Lyford template I love^
^you can take the template like it is or you can choose a different font, size and color for your text^
^is is also possible to adjust a background design for your card^
^and you can choose the inlay for your envelope you like, also the font and color for the front of the envelope and you can put a stamp onto it as well – in fact you can change every single detail the way you want it^
^after your card is finished you just have to save the e-mail adresses to whom you want to send it and it is arriving within minutes at the people´s mail accounts you wanted to invite – it is pretty easy an every step is described so you can´t do anything wrong at all^
one of the best things to get your friends and family together is hosting a dinner party. You can invite all your favorite people and have a nice, long and deep conversation over a delicious meal and a glass of rosé wine.
What I love most is preparing upfront. I make decisions on which table scape to take and write down the menu. Usually I am serving an aperitif, a salad or soup upfront. One main course and a dessert. This is where I can get really creative and this is so much fun to me.
But the very first and most important step is to send out invitations. So for this post I teamed up with Paperless Post to share you all the possibilities and advantages of online invitations.
I picked one from the dinner party invitations section. It took me a long time to go through all the differnent templates and to decide which one to take cause there are so many pretty ones. I dediced to go with the Lyford template cause the green, white and gold completes the table scape so well. You can choose from the backdrop and the inside of your electronic envelope onto what kind of stamp you want.
This kind of invitation really is new to me. But I think it has so many advantages. No invitation can get lost, you can send them out straight away and they probably get in your guests inbox within five minutes. Even if you have forgotten someone – which can happen easily with lots of guests – your invitation can still arrive in time.
This really is a great way and it saves you a lot of time and money. You only have to pay for your cards cause you don´t need stamps and you don´t loose time on planing cause you don´t need to wait for your cards to get printed and you won´t stand in line at the post office.
Not to mention the cool animation when you open the card in your e-mail.
Thanks for stopping by.
Take care. See you.
