Native American Invite
Native Americans were the one for whom the first Thanksgiving feast was organized by the pilgrims. Hence, it is only natural if you have an invitation card which reflects them. Your invitation card can comprise of an Indian chief hat print on a corner of the invitation or you can get an invitation which has a number of feathers on its border. This will give your invitation a whole countryside look. Variations of green and yellow are what you can go for when it comes to colors. The font which can be used here is comic sans or any other sans serif font which goes with the theme of the invitation.
A Thanksgiving dinner is incomplete without a turkey. Such has become the importance of a turkey during the festival that some people have even termed the day as Turkey Day. What better way can it be than to send your Thanksgiving Day party invite in the shape of a turkey? Or even better, how about a small turkey as an option? If you are going for the latter, attach a message card to the turkey and let your guests know of the party details, its date, time, venue and theme (if any).
Thanksgiving parties are fun, but you are bound to get confused if you are the one planning it, especially when you are planning invitations.
