The Best Invitations for Virtual & Drive-By Parties

The Best Invitations for Virtual & Drive-By Parties

By now, all of us have been to a Zoom party, virtual wedding, or drive-by shower. While the COVID-19 vaccine has given us some hope for a return to normalcy post-pandemic, it is likely that alternative social events will continue to remain a popular (and safe) choice for a while longer. But no need for these occasions to be any less festive and exciting than their in-person counterparts! Set the mood for a joyous occasion with an invitation that is anything but boring or dull. Better yet, choose an e-vite so that you save paper and reduce your carbon footprint!

Here are 10 of my favorite e-vites from Greenvelope for pandemic-friendly events.

Car Parade – I love the graphics on this super cute car parade invite. I also think it is smart to include a line about the honoree’s favorite things so people can customize their signs and car decor accordingly!

Elegant Overlay – I love that this virtual wedding invitation allows you to feature your engagement photography (or your wedding photography, if you are streaming a pre-recorded wedding ceremony!).

House Party – How fun are the colorful geometric shapes on this Zoom party invite? And also…who doesn’t love the idea of getting to attend a party from the comfort of their own home? Silver lining of pandemic living…

Mask Up – The mask motif on this socially distanced party invitation is super cute and very pandemic-appropriate!

Sit & See – This creative take on a “sip and see” party is a great idea for couples who have had a baby and haven’t been able to introduce the new family member to people due to the pandemic!

Noted Boldly – I love the simplicity of this invitation. The concept of the baby shower by mail is a great one too. Just because couples can’t have an in-person party doesn’t mean we shouldn’t shower them with all the things they’ll need for their little one!

Scavenger Hunt – If you’re looking for ways to stay entertained while staying at home, a virtual scavenger hunt is the perfect idea!

  1. Those are all great ideas! I have my 3 year old’s birthday coming up, not sure if we’ll do an online family event or some kind of drive by yet… but I love the idea of e-vites.
