Free birthday party invitations FAQs
How far in advance should you send out birthday invitations?
It is generally recommended to send out a child’s birthday party invitation about 2-4 weeks in advance of your birthday party. This timeframe allows guests enough time to check their schedules, RSVP, and make any necessary arrangements, such as arranging for a gift or finding childcare for siblings.
If you plan to hold the party at a popular venue or require a headcount for reservations, it’s a good idea to send invitations earlier to ensure you get the best guest count. You may also want to include an RSVP deadline on the invitation to encourage timely responses from guests…I find I often will need to follow up with a quick text or phone call.
How many kids should you have at a birthday party?
- A popular rule of thumb is “age plus one” for a birthday party invitation list. So if your child is turning 6, you might invite 7 kids! While that may work for many, there really is no one-size-fits-all approach. Consider these things when you are making a guest list:
- Space constraints
- Birthday child’s preferences
Your child’s friendships and group dynamics
If you are in a situation when you absolutely need a headcount, it is best to set aside some time to personally follow up with guests. With busy schedules, multiple children and jobs it is easy for your guest’s parents to forget or not have time to RSVP. If you don’t need an exact headcount and don’t want to personally follow-up, then have a little buffer in case someone who forgot to RSVP shows up. It is a party…make it fun!
