I recently contributed to an article for SheKnows.com on how to wow people with your organization skills. Since I left out a really good idea in their story, I thought it best to at least share it with my readers – sorry, SheKnows!
So the totally great idea is pretty simple and many of you may use this or at least have intentions to. Alright, alright, I’ll just say it already! E-Vites.
Sending invitations to guests, even if it’s just a dinner party, this sets guidelines and expectations that sets the event up for success.
We had a party once and my husband verbally invited his brother. My brother-in-law got only part of the message – our house at 4pm. When he an his family showed up to see it was a birthday party for our youngest son, and he didn’t have a toy in his back pocket, it was awkward for everyone.
As a hostess, invitations can include an ending time, too. This way guest understand when it’s appropriate to leave. Win, win.
And lastly, something dear to me, it’s paperless. Nothing is printed, packages, shipped, stocked, or mailed (that boils down mainly to paper, time and gas savings).
If you have not used this free service, try it out. They have really cute graphics to choose from and hey, they might even inspire a party!
