Getting Party Ready w/ Paperless Post

Summer is here, and I'm sure the party plans are in the works, ready for the big day(s). If there's one thing I love about going to/throwing parties other than the actual party itself, it's receiving/sending cute invitations. Sadly sending a paper invitation in the post is a rarity now.
Using Paperless Post is a good way to share your creative talent using a vast array of online and paper cards. We live in a world where most things are in digital form now, and so Paperless Post are there to provide just that! It certainly got me excited to try out (and create my own) cute designs.
In this post, I will be going through a list of essentials that need to be sorted before the big day from sending out invitations and picking out an outfit to decorating. 

1. Invite people! 
What's the use in throwing a party if no one will be there to enjoy it with you? Decide whether you're inviting a select amount of people or you're going all out and inviting everyone you know. Spice up what would be a boring text message, to sending a decorative online invitation. Below are a few I've been working on.

The website allows you to choose from a wide variety of envelope designs, background colours and to adapt the actual template of an invitation. There's an option for your friends and family to reply to inform you whether or not they can come too.

There's also an app so you can freely work on your amazing designs on the go! Why not send your loved ones a thank you card as well?



The invite will show your guest all the relevant information and will come presented in a lovely animation in which the card comes out of the envelope!

 (I'm actually graduating in two years haha!)

If you're hosting your own event, why not use Paperless Post to create a fun and original invite?

2. Pick out an outfit!
Whether it will be a smart or a casual event, below are a few outfit ideas for this summer season.

2. Decorate!
Make sure you've decided on the theme for the party beforehand. Will it be a sophisticated get together? Will there be loads of banners and balloons? Is it a fun day at the beach or in the park?

A perfect investment because you can use it indoors but also outdoors next to a pool without the worry of water damaging it.


This is something I thought would be a cool idea, why not have a notebook lying around so that friends and family can write a lovely little message to you?


And last but not least, get an instant camera to capture all the little moments!
