My favorite July 4th invitations

July 4th is a big deal in my neighborhood, and last year I went all out with the invitations. They were such a big hit that I’m going to do them again this year, and I’ve discovered some new additions to our card collection that will make my 2011 invitations sparkle.

Check out my new favorite July 4th invites and learn why I love them.

Fourth of July 4×8 Invitation

First of all, I am in love with the 4×8 form factor, because that extra length looks stunning, and is perfect for showcasing 3 photos in a row. Makes a great looking invite that will catch the eye.

Sprinkle Multi Invitation

I can use this invite for all kind of party occasions, but I am so in love with those fun bursts that I might just choose this one for July 4th. The colors shout summer, and the layout allows me to feature my favorite summertime photo.

Star Stripe Banners Summer Invitation

Who needs a photo when you’ve got stars and stripes? I love the hanging flag display and tiny blue star. Slightly retro, a little nostalgic, and totally fourth of July. I want it!

Bonus party tip

Speaking of July 4th parties, here’s a little party tip for you. If you’re having lots of kids over for the big day, cover the kids’ eating table with white craft paper and give them red and blue markers and stickers so they can decorate it July 4th style.

more about Rachel B

Thank you for visiting “Picture More”, Shutterfly's Community Blog. My name is Rachel, and I come from a long line of photo enthusiasts. My grandparents kept a large (and heavy!) collection of family photo albums in their living room, which my sister and I loved looking through. My mother continued the tradition by becoming a hobby photographer (phrases like “smile, “hold that pose” and “let me get my camera” were a constant part of our lives). Now my sister and I are avid camera fans. She takes beautiful pictures of her children, and I enjoy capturing the many far-away places my husband and I visit. What I love about Shutterfly is that it helps me turn my photos into meaningful keepsakes like photo books, calendars, and photo gifts (I love my coasters, posters, mug and mouse pad!). My memories are now a part of my everyday life, not living in a shoe box or hard drive. And what I love about "Picture More" is that it will help us get even more creative with our pictures. I'm excited to exchange ideas with all of you!
