Birthday  invitations, and the wording and phrases that go in them, can run the gamut from witty and fun to serious and straightforward. The best thing to keep in mind when deciding upon  birthday  invitation verses and wording is who the  birthday  party is for. Age, personality, interests, and even profession can play a part. The invitation wording should represent the celebrant well.

Children’s  Birthday  Invitations are typically fun and lighthearted, and usually play a part in a larger theme. Sometimes inspiration for a theme can come just by browsing through some  birthday  invitations.

Once a theme is in place, you’ll want to include  birthday  invitation wording to match. For a Circus themed party with Circus party invitations the invitation wording might read:

The giraffe stretches his neck to see;

the elephant waves his trunk with glee;

the seal twirls his ball with joy,

in honor of the  birthday  boy.

Come join Cody in celebrating his seventh  birthday

The older the child gets it may become easier to decide on a theme, or even forgo the theme as the child gets into its teen years. A sweet sixteen, for example, is a theme all its own. For this kind of party, you should pick out some Sweet Sixteen invitations that fit the personality of the celebrant. If it’s a girl, something pink and frilly might be appropriate, such as Princess Tiara  Birthday  Party Invitation, with the following wording:

Steer clear! Brianna’s got a license to drive!

Come celebrate her sweet sixteen.

If the  birthday  person is turning 18 years of age or younger, it is considered okay to include the exact age they are turning in the  birthday  invitation wording. When considering including jokes about age, do so with much consideration and sensitivity. Consider the formality of the party and who’s being invited. If it’s a formal dinner for a coworker, you may want to nix any thought of light-heartedness. If it’s a backyard barbecue party for a close relative or friend, this may be the perfect time for a light-hearted jab. Generally, the rule is to only make an age-related joke if the person who’s  birthday  you’re celebrating would make the joke themselves.

When considering  birthday  invitation wording when the celebrant is an adult, it is common to point out the joys of growing older:

Some things are better the older they grow.

Antiques, wine and someone special we know!

You should still keep in mind who is having the  birthday . You don’t necessarily have to throw a themed party, but the wording for the  birthday  invitation cards should show a glimmer of who the celebrant is. Let’s say the celebrant enjoys Gardening. You’ll want to get Garden Party Invitations and include matching wording:

Friends are flowers in the garden of life . . .

and we’ve “picked” a great bunch to celebrate Jackie’s  Birthday .

Another avenue you might pursue is the surprise party. In your invitation wording, it should be expressed clearly that the celebrant doesn’t and shouldn’t know details of the party. Here are some examples:

Shh! It’s a surprise party!

Overall, your  birthday  invitation wording should not only convey the details of the party, but should also be a good reflection of who the celebrant is.
