How to Plan Your Birthday

  1. Send Out Your Invites

    The best part of your birthday is getting to celebrate with the people you care about the most, so make sure they can make it by sending out invitations as soon as possible! Once you know where and when you’ll be celebrating your special day, send out your Adobe Spark designed invitations to your guests, and then you can focus on the rest of the planning.

  2. Planning the Party

    How can you make the most of your time with you and your guests? Are you going somewhere for your birthday, like out for dinner or to a movie or arcade? Or will you be hosting friends over at your house? Walk through the timeline of your party to make sure there’s time for both socializing as well as activities to bond with your guests. If you’re keeping it low key at home, no worries! Print out bingo cards or superlatives nominations with Adobe Spark. Taking your guests out on the town? Treat them to a goodie bag of party favors like silly glasses or disposable cameras, each with a custom printed tag using Adobe Spark.

  3. Treat Yourself!

    Be sure to treat you and your guests to a birthday dessert of your choosing! Don’t like birthday cake? Serve up cupcakes, cookie cake, pie, or ice cream sandwiches instead. Any dessert can be made into a festive birthday one with candles, or printed flags on toothpicks (which you can design with Adobe Spark!).

  4. Thank Your Guests

    There are so many ways you can say thank you that are both meaningful and memorable. Create custom stationary with Adobe Spark Post to make thank you letters to send in the mail or via email. Or, create a photo or video slideshow of the best moments from your party, and send it to your guests as a sign of appreciation for the memories. Printed photos are just as precious as digital ones, so consider uploading your photos to Spark Post and decorating them with stickers or borders, to then print out and send to guests so they can reflect on your party often.

Celebrate Your Birthday with Adobe Spark

Make your birthday bash the best it can be by putting thought and creativity into it. Little details such as custom invites, name tags, personalized decorations, and printouts add a heartfelt touch to your soirée. And, the same applies when you are a guest! Take pride in letting your creativity be a part of your gift-giving through your card, custom certificate, or gift tag. Whether you’re the birthday girl or boy or a guest at the party, creativity and personalization can make you feel special and elevate any experience to a memorable one. So live it up, and may all your birthday wishes come true!
