So you’ve got the perfect party idea, know who you want to invite and are all ready to write up that Facebook event description that’ll have people RSVP’ing yes … but you can’t think of a great cover photo?

Facebook is helping with that by developing event cover art themes to be used when an event is created on mobile.

For instance, when creating an event on mobile, you can choose from animated art in categories such as family, seasons, holiday, food and drink, party, recreation and travel.

This is rolling out gradually to Android users in the U.S., with iOS coming soon. Facebook is starting with 36 illustrations will add new themes over the next few months.

Facebook points out that 55 percent of all event activity happens on mobile, where it can be tedious to add cover art for an event.
