Birthday Party Invitations Ideas
Birthday Party Invitations
Let’s get to the point. With regards to birthday invitations, professionals and non-professionals alike can use standard invitations. These can include standard and premium paper invitations, luxe and custom die-cut paper, digital ecards, cookie-cutter video invitations and invitation templates for arranging the bash. The same approach pertains to business and social events along with conferences, charitable functions, unique milestones and other special events. As a creative event planner shouldn’t you be thinking outside the box? It’s time to be different!
Creative Birthday Party Invitations
Why are creative birthday invitations so important? Because engaging your guest list with your important upcoming event is a must! It’s true that guest engagement is the driving force behind you having a successful event, large or small. However, creativity is what will make it stand out.
There’s just one more piece to this puzzle that makes all the difference in the world. Personalization! If you have ever received a hand-written invitation, the first impression you had was no doubt a sincere feeling of how much you mean to whoever is inviting you. When done correctly, personalized invitations create a buzz and a memorable experience, and, for business, personalized invitations make connections that positively impact any event.
So, how can you up your creativity game and ensure you deliver something unique and original? Think Inside-The-Box — the Gigeo® personalized invitation box!
It’s time to be creative, different and personalize your Birthday invitations.

Casino Themed Birthday Parties and Invitations
For this party, you might need to rent some equipment like a roulette wheel or any other games you think will work or hire that out to professional casino theme vendors. Serve food buffet style and have someone play bartender for your guests.
80s Themed Party and Invitations
The 1980s TV series The A-team is unforgettable and sending your invited guests a personalized Mr. T invitation to an 80s party will motivate every recipient to attend your event. Some things that haven’t gone out of style since the 1980s are arcade games, both old and new, and Rubik’s cubes. Encourage guests to bring 80s cassettes and wear outfits that match the times.
Dinner Party Themes and Invitations
Any Italian-themed dinner party begs for Robert De Niro personalized video invitations, while James Bond invitations fit well with a murder mystery dinner party. Regardless if it is a game-day or elegant Great Gatsby-themed dinner party, Ricky Bobby, Gordon Ramsey, or Audrey Hepburn personalized video invitations will get invited guests eagerly looking forward to your event.
We use celebrity impersonators to create a memorable guest experience even before the event begins.

How To Write A Birthday Invitation?
Are you planning a 30th birthday, Frozen theme party, dinner party, product launch party or maybe a wedding? Whatever your reason for planning a party or event, you’ll need to identify all of the important details. Once you are past the initial planning stages, all that’s left is finishing the event planning and sending out the invites.
Sending party and event invitations is the best way to communicate to your guest what the event is about or what it is that you are celebrating.
Guidelines for Writing Birthday Invitations
The following guidelines are the basic questions you need to answer in your Birthday invitation. This information can be summarized as the who, what, when, where, and why of the party or event.
Use the wording and design of your Birthday invitation to tell your guests exactly why you are throwing the party. For example, if it’s for a birthday party, make sure to include who it’s for and age they are celebrating.
Provide the name of the host for the party or event.
Tell the recipients what the event is all about and what to expect. This can include the description of your theme, activities, and any special requests of the guests.
State the date and time of your party or event. Always include the day of the week as well. For instance, Sunday April 10th 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Be clear on the location. Give the physical address and if off-site, also include the name of the venue and phone number for directions.
