Family Christmas Party Invitation Wording

Table of Contents

As the holiday season is nearing, party planning is kicking into full gear. One of the things we don’t do often enough when planning a party is sending out official invitations! Not only can they help you get more RSVPs, but it’s a great way to relay important information about the event!

Christmas Party Invitation Wording

Christmas party invitation wording is an important element of Christmas party planning as it can mean the difference between a yes or a no RSVP. Why? Because the Christmas party can either sound awesome or lame, and people frequently get invited to a few different Christmas parties.

Luckily we’ll be focusing on Christmas party invitation wording for a family Christmas party, so chances of being blown off are much slimmer! Still, you want to be sure the wording on those invites sounds enticing, right? Right!

You’ll first want to remember to include this information on our invites:

  • Who: Who is the host/hostess of the Christmas party? Certainly, this person deserves to have his or her name on the invitation!
  • What: This would be the Christmas party! Give it a fun name that goes with the theme such as a Santa Hat Shindig!
  • When: This is so important; include the date and time of the party!
  • Where: Where will the party be held? At your home? At the neighborhood clubhouse?
  • Theme: If the party has a theme, include it in pictures or color scheme on the invitation.
  • RSVP: It is important to include a few avenues for someone to send an RSVP. A stamped, self-addressed envelope should be sent, along with including an email address and phone number, and the name of the person they are RSVPing to.
  • Special info (optional): You will want to announce other special information such as dressing up for a costume contest or bringing a dish for a potluck event.


Now that you know what to include in your Christmas invitation wording, let’s go over a few examples to get you started.

See how the wording in these examples are lighthearted and fun? That’s how it should be to really grab the attention of the recipient and get your point across.

Friendly tip: These days, it’s becoming increasingly common to send evites instead of invites, but keep in mind that we live in a generation that is right in between snail mail and full digital; there’s still a generation of good people who aren’t quite computer savvy. It is necessary to still send invitations in the mail in order to reach out to everyone.

Once you have your Christmas party invitation wording, you can consider ending it with a simple Christmas prayer. Be sure to read it over a few times and have someone double-check the spelling, and make sure it flows the way you intend. Once you have sent them out, it’s one more thing to check off that list for the holiday season!
