Come Party With Me: Memorial Day BBQ - Invites

I'm hosting my annual Memorial Day summer kickoff barbeque this weekend and guess what?! You're invited! Follow along all this week as I plan the bbq bash. Let's get this party started by making a simple invitation. I'll be sending this personalized digital flyer out as a mass email. To see how I did it,


To make this invite you will need:

  • image of a barbeque (it can be one you took last summer!) or one you find on the web
  • computer
  • photoshop or word

To assemble this invitation:

  1. Drag and drop your image into a new document or blank file. Create several text boxes with the details of the party. I made three and used Bradley Hand ITC TT font to type the following message:
    Usher in summer in style at PartySugar's Annual Memorial Day BBQ

    Saturday May 26
    4:30 pm

    PartySugar's House
    San Francisco, CA
    RSVP 415.555.5555

    I rotated and turned the text boxes for a fun, laid back feel.

  2. Copy and paste the entire invitation into the body of an email and send to all of your friends!
