What should be included on the Invitation?

Of course, you want to make sure your birthday invitations also contain the essential information so your guests know where and when to turn up for the party. So make sure you've also included the following details:


Who is the party for?

The name(s) of the all important birthday boy/girl

Day and date

Eg: Saturday 16th June 2015


Start and finish time of the party. If it's a drop off and pick up party for slightly older kids, then it can be helpful to mention that too.

Address details

It can be handy to include any parking instructions or directions if necessary.

Will it be dress-up?

If yes and you're inviting both boys and girls, be sure to make it a gender neutral theme. For example for a mermaid party you could say, "Please come dressed your favourite Sea creature/person!" That way girls can come dressed as mermaids or pirates and boys can come dressed as a sailor, scuba diver or pirate too.

RSVP details

Provide your contact details (email or phone number) and a date to RSVP by. It's always helpful to have an RSVP date so you have enough time to change your catering requirements or to let the venue know, if needed.

Dietary requirements

Just in case any little one has any allergies you might need to cater for, it is good to ask!
