It’s your birthday – time to celebrate! As you begin to craft your birthday invitation, allow yourself to have a little fun with it. Birthday invitations, unlike other sorts of invites, don’t follow very specific rules of etiquette. All you need to include is a few key details, and then create a fun and festive presentation to go along with it! The details are pretty straightforward – who, what, when, and where, in that order. You can write it out formally if that fits the theme of your party (“Your presence is requested…”) or make it into a list. Make sure all the details are included, spelled correctly, and laid out in a manner that is easy to read. Don’t forget any extra details guests might need to know. Can guests bring a friend? Is there a dress code? What type of food is being served, in case your guests have allergies? Should guests bring a gift? And last but certainly not least, who should guests RSVP with and by when? No need to include every detail of the party on the invite, just the ones that will allow your invitees to arrive on time and ready for a party they’ll never forget.
