Birthday Party Invitation Ideas

A party invitation card basically consists of five important elements. They are the venue, date and time, wordings, R.S.V.P., and the theme (if any). In case you are planning for a surprise party, you should mention the same on the card.
First, decide whether you will be sending printed or handwritten cards. You can also send online ones, but all your guests should have an e-mail id and you also need to acknowledge whether each of them have received and checked the same or not.
To get printed cards, you can try searching on the Internet. Many of the websites provide free ready-made printable card templates. You can download and print these templates and use them for your cards. If you have planned the party in a very short time period, you can always go for this option.
