Around the World Party Invitations

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

Tired of the typical decades, cocktail or western themed parties?  Sometimes planning a party and choosing a party theme can be a frustrating task – it’s one of those ‘been there done that’ moments when you realize every theme you’ve come up with is one that you’ve done before or was done by X friend a few months prior.  Well, look no further because I stumbled upon a great party theme today that I just had to share with our dedicated readers!

Love to travel but just don’t have the funds this year?  We’re all in the same boat, and it’s time to set sail to an international party theme where your home becomes an international masterpiece!  The theme is called Around the World, and it involves you decorating each room in your home with a different cultural theme or location.  One room can be Paris where you can serve hors d’oeuvres and champagne.  Another room may be a fiesta themed room where you serve up chips, salsa, burritos and margaritas.  Choose the countries that mean the most to you and your guests.  Perhaps add a room for India if you have some Indian friends or Greece if you have a few Greeks in the mix.   You can even reach out to your guests and ask them to bring a dish or decor to share for that party room.  Sharing your culture with others is a great ice-breaker as most of us don’t get the opportunity to sail the world on a daily basis…or even yearly basis!  Ask your friends to each come dressed according to their native culture or nationality and really get festive.

Set the scene for your around the world party with an international party invitation that makes your guests want to travel to your event!  The above invitation is the World Traveler Boarding Pass Invitation by Noteworthy Collections, which is just perfect for this type of party theme.  The card features a white background with a dark brown wood grain outer border which creates a boarding pass effect for a trip.  Tiny colorful passport stamps adorn the bottom right portion of the invitation from famous countries like Italy, India, Russia, Mexico, Turkey and Canada, to name a few.  Fill in the different areas of the boarding pass with your party details, and include your party date as the ticket date.  This fun party invitation offers coordinating thank you notes and stickers to create a traveling ensemble…as well as a second boarding pass version which includes your digital photograph.

Remember, we also offer an array of nautical and traveling themed invitations which feature compasses, anchors, mock-up passports and more.  Take charge of your next party and host the party with the theme they’ll never stop talking about!  Cheers!
