Invitation Wording Samples And Tips: How To Word Your Easter Party Invitation

Planning on hosting an Easter party this year? Here are some free invitation wording samples and templates to help inspire you when writing your own Easter party invitation.

When Christian adults think of Easter, they are reminded of the miraculous resurrection of Christ and church services honoring this glorious act. On the other hand, when kids think of Easter, their eyes glaze over as thoughts of chocolates, Peeps, and egg hunts drift through their heads. If you will be throwing an Easter party this year, you will have many different themes to choose from. If your party will be geared towards children, you can make the invitation light-hearted and fun, mentioning the famed Easter rabbit, the egg hunt and candies galore. Or, if your party will be taking on a more serious tone honoring the religious holiday, you can create your invitations more formally. Here are some free wording samples and templates you can use when creating your own Easter party invitations.

If you will be providing an Easter lunch, dinner or simple refreshments, be sure to indicate that on the invitation, so guests know if they should eat before attending the party. It is always a good idea to enclose a map or textual directions with the invitation so guests do not get lost.

If, like in the above example, you will be holding a potluck and wish for guests to bring a dish or dessert, indicate that on the invitation itself. On one of the invitation templates above, the phrase "immediately following Mass" was used. These would be used as invitation you pass out to the regular church-goers of your particular church. If you are inviting a mixture of people, including friends and neighbors who may not attend the same church as you, indicate a specific time.
