It’s always nice to celebrate and throw a party during birthdays but there is really something more special when a person is about to celebrate his or her 50th birthday. Being able to remain alive and kicking for 50 years is quite an achievement and really calls for celebration.
The first thing you have to do when you are planning to throw a 50th birthday bash is to prepare the invitations so that people can be informed as to when and where the party will be held.
Gold Is In
When you make 50th birthday invitations, you have to choose the color of the paper that you’re going to use for invitations, right? Well, the most appropriate color for 50th birthday invitations is gold. However, if you don’t really like the color gold, you can also use basic and neutral colors such as cream, black, white, beige, brown, flesh, etc. Using vibrant and overly-perky colors such as neons and hot pinks are really highly discouraged because it would be inappropriate for the age of the celebrant.
Simplicity Is Beauty
Unlike kiddy birthday invitations that are full of prints and other frilly stuffs, 50th birthday invitations should appear to be simple, elegant and straight to the point. As much as possible, you just indicate the important and basic information of the party such as when and where it will be held.
It is not necessary to overload the invitation with drawings, designs and photographs; just make sure that the important information are present and you’re all set to give your 50th birthday invitations.
Electronic Mail Invitations
If you think that you don’t have enough free time on your hands to send out invitations through snail mail, you can opt to send an electronic mail invitation. It’s either you make a very simple electronic message or you can go to a Website that offers free personalization of online birthday party invitations. Either way, you get to inform and invite people to your birthday party without having to send out invitations manually.
Hand-made birthday invitations are perfect for parties that will only have a few guests because it will be really tedious and tiresome to make a lot of hand-made invitations.
Make sure that your invitations will be done and ready weeks or days before the party to give way to the mailing time. Remember that it may take a few days for the snail mail to arrive that’s why the invitations should be prepared ahead of time.
