Birthday Party Invitations


When planning a birthday party, birthday party invitations are a must.  But what do you plan on writing in them.  Sometimes finding the answer to that question may be tougher than we think.  We have compiled a list of necessary information and wording that could be used for your invitation.  If you plan on making your own invitations or even having them printed up, having a list of information you can use like a checklist to make sure nothing is forgotten, is a helpful idea.


If you’re party already has its theme that may help with the invitation look and décor.  How you want the design of the invitation to be will be up to you.  You will want to have some sort of saying, quote, phrase or poem to start the invitation which will them read down to the information necessary to attending the party.


Some examples of quotes and good starting sentences are: (Change Jane to the name of the guest of honor)


“Inside every older person is a younger person wondering what happened.” Jennifer Yane

So come join us in celebrating Jane’s birthday while she wonders where her youth is hiding!


“The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.” Lucille ball

Join us in celebrating Jane’s real age, even though she will deny it and lie through her teeth!


“The older the fiddler, the sweeter the tune.” English Proverb

So let’s Party with Jane and celebrate becoming one year older!


Age is strictly a case of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter. Jack Benny

And Jane really doesn’t matter, but she still feels this is a great time to party!!!



Some information you may consider going on your invitation is:

  1. Birthday girl/boy’s full name

  2. The age they are turning

  3. The date of the event

  4. The time of the event

  5. Address of the venue

  6. Directions or map for the venue

  7. If there is a theme that requires costumes or accessories

  8. If there is a gift registry or if gifts are not required

  9. Whether dinner will be served

  10. What type of birthday wishes they should send?


We hope you have found this information useful when creating your birthday invitation.  There is lots to do when planning a birthday party, so we hope we have assisted you in taking one thing of that list.  Feel free to use our examples of quotes and starting sentences if you feel they will fit your invitation fine.
