The invitation you choose for your child's birthday party should be one that matches his or her theme. The rocket ship invitation above would fit a space, rocket, or even a vehicle themed birthday party, while the monkey invitation is perfect for a zoo, safari, or jungle themed party. If you're looking for a 1st birthday party invitation, consider one made especially for that occasion, rather than one meant for older children.
Teens tend to shy away from balloons, streamers, and other birthday decorations. The cool-looking silhouettes on the dance party invitation are perfect for hitting a teen club or for a dance party in someone's basement. The groovy peace invitation is a good one if teens like to dress up or have a flair for the 70s.
Skip the special 40th or 50th birthday party invitation and use an over the hill invitation for the adult who's turning a milestone age. If the celebrant is sensitive about his age, use a more general invitation to avoid offending him.
