Practical: Backwards Party Invitation Cards

The Backwards Party printable package includes the classic fill-in invitation.The fill-in invitation is the best kind if your child is having a backwards birthday party and is taking the invitations to school to invite all his classmates and friends. When his guests get home with them, jumping up and down in excitement shouting “Can I, can I” that mom wants to be able to glance quickly at the card, check the date and say yes or no right away.

Exciting: Surprise Ball 3D Invitations

For that special occasion – or if you’re a party maven who loves over-the-moon parties – I like to suggest an invitation that’s a little more exciting than just a card. For a backwards party a surprise ball is perfect! A surprise ball is a ball of crepe paper containing little prizes that the recipient receives as they unwind the ball. Since it’s backwards day, receiving the “party favors” at the beginning instead of the end makes so much sense!

As the invitee unwinds the crepe paper little gifts fall out of the ball until at the end they see the invitation to a party . . . the time and date . . . and then the host’s name.

See our Surprise Ball Tutorial for step by step instructions on how to make this invitation.

There has been a lot of talk in social media about no-shows at birthday parties. Don’t let that happen to you. Make an invitation that gets them so excited that they don’t even have a choice because they are so looking forward to what happens next!
