Organize Thanksgiving with Unique Invitations
Thanksgiving is a time for family, a time for sharing, and a time for food. Many people all over Canada will gather together to celebrate on this holiday, typically by cooking lots of food and spending some special time together. Though our first Thanksgiving was held to celebrate the recovery of King Edward from a serious illness, these days we celebrate Thanksgiving in October in order to give thanks for a successful harvest.
But getting together for Thanksgiving can be as hectic as it can be relaxing. There are feasts to be planned, food to be purchased, and guests to invite. And even when a family member can’t make it to town for the holiday, no one should feel left out on a day that’s meant for togetherness.
Make a Guest List
When it comes down to it, not everyone that is invited to a gathering is guaranteed to show up. In fact, there are a number of reasons why people may not be able to attend any given party or dinner, and Thanksgiving is no different. The first steps to organizing a successful Thanksgiving are to make a guest list and to send out invitations.
Send Out Invitations
Sending out invitations is one way to help make sure that people a) know they are invited to Thanksgiving, and b) are really encouraged to show up. What could be worse than preparing a large meal for just a few people when you expected many more guests to arrive? Invitations printed just for a Thanksgiving party have a special appeal for anyone who receives one.
Seal the Envelope
There are many different templates to choose from when deciding which type of invitation to go with. The invitations are inexpensive, so no one has to worry about going overboard by spending too much before the party even gets started. They will arrive quickly, and can be ordered with envelopes as well to further expedite the process.
Add a Personal Touch
Invitations printed specifically for a Thanksgiving party help your guests feel special. This is more than a phone call or email asking whether someone is interested in showing up for some grub; this is a way to add that personal touch by creating a special invite just for that occasion. Making friends and family feel welcome, now that’s really what Canadian Thanksgiving is all about.
