Use phrases such as "Christmas comes but once a year, let's get together for some holiday cheer!" or "You're invited for some holiday cheer to celebrate this special time of year!" to begin a Christmas party invitation. Include the location of the event as well.
For those that wish for a more sentimental beginning, use "Christmas...a time for reflection, a time for good cheer, a time for friends and family, during a special time of year!" Add humor to the invitation and use "Grab all your gum drops and your peppermint sticks, your gingerbread recipe and your little bag of tricks!" To include some of the featured festivities, try using a phrase such as "Set your sights on Christmas lights and eggnog round the tree! Please join us for a night of fun at our annual Christmas Celebration!"
In addition to an attention grabbing phrase, be sure to include the exact time and date of the event. It is also a good idea to include the preferred attire: casual, informal or formal. State a quick description of the foods that are likely to be available to guests during the event. Recommend guests RSVP for the event, and include contact information by providing an email address or phone number. Keep the wording simple and to the point.
