Kid's birthday invitations header

We have zero shame in saying this: We’re a big group of kids who never grew up. And for that reason, designing (and sending) kid’s birthday invitations is sorta our jam.

Because while adult birthday parties are nice, we’d choose a bouncy house over a cocktail bar any day. And when you think of all the go-to kid’s party themes — pool parties, skating parties, bowling parties — you’re low-key humming the tune to Our Favorite Things.

So if you’re searching high and low for the best kid’s birthday invitations, just sit back and relax. We have a whole collection of designs that will make you want to party.

Advantages of Sending Digital Kid’s Birthday Invitations

Planning your child’s birthday party should, well, make you feel like a kid again. It shouldn’t stress you out with time constraints, logistics, budgets, and so on. Here’s why sending online invitations through Greenvelope can make the experience feel like a party for the parents (not just the kiddos).

  1. It helps preserve your budget: Looking to save a pretty penny? Parents Magazine listed sending digital invitations — rather than paper ones — as one of the best ways to save money on a child’s birthday party.
  2. It’s a time saver: Between reserving the bounce house, calling other parents, and checking in with the bakery, this event is taking more prep than hosting your extended family for a holiday party. Greenvelope’s easy customization tool allows you to send out invitations in just a few minutes.
  3. It ensures no one is accidentally left out: Let’s face it, traditional mail is anything but fool-proof. Rather than worry that an invitation got lost in the mail or sent to the wrong address (causing one of your child’s closest friends to feel left out), Greenvelope sends invitations directly to the other parents’ inboxes. Plus, with advanced guest tracking, you know if — and when — your invitations are opened. Therefore, if a parent hasn’t opened the invitation days after sending it, you can call, text, or direct message the guest with a follow-up.
  4. It can easily be customized to the birthday theme: Personalized stationery from printed-paper card companies come with limited options. But with Greenvelope, there are over 350 kid’s birthday party invitations to choose from — all of which can be customized in just a few clicks.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the cutest options for digital, kid’s birthday invitations.
