Pick a theme: The first step in designing patriotic July 4th party invitations is to pick a theme. Pick the same theme as your party to keep things consistent.

Incorporate aspects of your party theme into the invitation by including complimentary images, wording and color schemes.

Color scheme: Keep the color scheme of your design simple for a chic and eye-catching invitation. Use colors that accent your party theme and the holiday. Red, white, and blue are obvious to include, but be mindful of adding other colors to avoid making your invite look busy. You can also use different shades of red, white, and blue for a twist on the classic Independence Day color scheme.

Invitation wording: To ensure your invitations are memorable, choose the right wording to compliment your party theme and style. The invitation wording is a chance for you to catch the attention of your guests with a creative, whimsical and fun phrase. Here are some great examples of July 4th invitation wording:
