Party Invitations

st. patrick's day video invitations and greetingsBack in when I lived in St. Louis, St. Patrick’s Day was a pretty big deal. There were parties and all kinds of festivities. Well, St. Patrick’s Day is next week. If you haven’t already, you may want to get the party started this year a little differently. Create a one-of-a-kind, conversation starter now by shooting a video and then sending video invitations to all your friends to come join you while you drink green beer and enjoy corned beef and cabbage.

It’s not as difficult as it sounds. Creating video invitations is pretty easy. All you need a is smartphone and a computer. Either use footage from last year’s St. Patty’s day festivities or put on your green and lucky hat and shoot another. Be yourself and invite your friends and family to come join you.

Once you do that, create an account with Inviter.com, create an event, add the details, and email it to your guests. You’ll be able to see the opens and RSVPs too. It’s pretty self-explanatory once you get started.

Remember you can also shoot a St. Patty’s Day greeting too. Same steps involved as an invitation only different messaging.

In the 2005 Stanford University commencement speech from former CEO and entrepreneur of Apple, Steve Jobs; he openly spoke about his failures and success in working among the tech industry. He continued to deliver the speech about his personal struggle with cancer and how that affected his life. While this impressive tech entrepreneur have accomplished so much, he has also failed an immense amount. His inspiring speech continues with hopeful, but realistic wise words for graduates.

He stated, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

While Steve Jobs brings inspiration and hope to students confused by the post-grad life, graduation should be seen as a milestone moment for applauding.

A milestone moment like this is meant to be captured and shared, and students everywhere want to highlight their accomplishments as students with a click of a camera. With technology soaring the modern world, you can do so by sharing your captured moments with your family and friends via video greetings.
