It has taken me a bit to get used to but every year my husband's family mails out Thanksgiving invitations. Although this tradition may seem a bit formal, it is actually quite lovely. Each year the invitation itself sets the tone for that year’s Thanksgiving festivities. Moreover, the actual receipt of the invitation ignites conversations and anticipation about seeing aunts, uncles, and cousins galore. We even look forward to guessing what valuables the new batch of toddlers will inevitably break.
So before you get too overwhelmed with holiday planning, we made your job a little easier – here is an overview of the best of the best Thanksgiving invitations to inspire you. Every year all our favorite merchants introduce a fresh batch of Thanksgiving invitations so be sure to to scroll through all of your options so you can familiarize yourself with the new looks as well as the more classic stationery styles. Last year when we were hosting a California Thanksgiving, I purposely chose an elegant look rather than a ultra casual style because I wanted all the New Englanders to rest assured that although we would definitely put a unique San Diego spin on Thanksgiving, we would still honor the traditions they had learned to love and come to expect.
