How to Word Thanksgiving Invitations

When selecting your wording for your Thanksgiving invitations, there are a few things you will need to include. Because Thanksgiving is on a set day, it is more important to focus on the nature of your event than when it will occur. Here is a quick summary of things you may want to include. Your invitation should cater to your specific needs, but this guide will give you an idea of what not to leave out!

  • Timing: Guests need to know when to arrive and when to expect to eat. Because Thanksgiving is traditionally a huge feast, guests will plan the rest of their food intake for that day according to when they will be eating this meal.
  • Nature of the Event: It may seem obvious that you are getting together for Thanksgiving, but it is not obvious what you have planned for your event. Thanksgiving Day could include games, activities, and socializing all day long. It could mean attempting to fry, roast, or barbeque a turkey in the backyard. The attire and atmosphere could be relaxed and casual or formal for a sit-down dinner. Be sure your guests are informed on how they should show up, and what to expect for the day.
  • Tone: Different families celebrate in different ways, so make sure the tone and font of your invitation matches the formality of your event.
  • Location: Be sure to include the address of your home or wherever you are hosting your event. Since Thanksgiving often extended family, they may not be as familiar with the location of your home as your immediate family. Avoid confusion of how to get to your home on the day of by including the exact address on your invitation.
  • RSVP: You will want your guests to RSVP to your invitation so you know how much food (and how big of a turkey) needs to be cooked. Formal invitations should have an RSVP card included. Casual and semi-formal invitations can include RSVP information on the invitation. Be sure to include an RSVP date, contact information, and whether you want all guests to reply or if you need regrets only.

Are you ready for another Holiday Season?  Picking out the right card for your family, friends, and co-workers can be a hassle that adds nothing but stress to your already overgrown list of things to do.  This year, I will be sending out Thanksgiving cards instead of the traditional Christmas cards!  It’s a great way to stand out from the crowd, celebrate in a fresh and still festive way, or even avoid religious conflicts in a more professional environment.  After all, everyone, regardless of our unique backgrounds, practices, and beliefs, should spend a moment reflecting on the positive things to be thankful for in life.  Wishing others a Happy Thanksgiving is a perfect fit for both the formal business setting and the intimate setting of family and close friends.  Show your gratitude for the people in your life in a way that is sure to touch their hearts.  Here are a few of my personal favorites to get your creative leaves falling...
