An elegant soiree requires classy invitations. You don’t think people will actually show up to your French dessert party if you send them plain cards. Your invitation is going to mark an impression to the attendee as the invitation card alone will let him or her know what kind of gathering it would be. You can take inspiration from French-inspired wedding invitation cards for you to have an idea what kind of envelope and format to embrace.
