Turning fifty is definitely something to commemorate in a person's life; it's a time to celebrate the first fifty years of their life and to welcome all the years to come. Keep in mind that this could be a fairly big undertaking, and you'll want to give yourself plenty of time to get everything done. The best place to start would be the 50th birthday party invitations.
Once you've taken the time to compile a guest list (be sure to include people from different parts of your guest-of-honor's life, such as high school, college, and various work colleagues, if possible), you're ready to put together the invitations. You'll want a slogan or saying for each card. These can be humorous or sentimental, whichever you prefer.
One option is, "Nifty, nifty, look who's fifty!" Or you could just put something simple such as, "You're invited to join us as we celebrate the first fifty years of Steve's life." It doesn't have to be too fancy.
As far as what the invite actually looks like, your best bet would be to keep it simple. A solid, dark colored background with a white pinstripe and white wording, or a white background with a black pinstripe and wording are easy, elegant, and eye-catching.
If you're throwing a theme party, include thematic elements of it here. For instance, if you're hosting a formal ball, you can make the 50th birthday party invitation look like a tuxedo. It is truly up to your imagination.
The next aspect to deal with is the wording on the 50th birthday party invitation. This is where you'll be including all of the key facts about your party. Make sure to clearly state who is being celebrated and what for. Include the day of the week, date, and time the party is going to be held, and its location. If necessary, it's a good idea to supply directions to the party-spot for all of your guests.
You'll want to request an RSVP response, and list the ways you can be contacted, whether by e-mail, phone, or an included response card. Be sure to include any other key information about the party, such as a theme, kind of attire requested, and menu details, if possible. Here is a sample of 50th birthday party invitation wording:
You're invited to celebrate half a century of Roger's life on earth!
What: An out-of-this world backyard barbeque under the stars
Where: Jeanine's house (directions included on back of invitation)
When: Saturday, August 3rd 2010, from 7pm-11pm
Why: Because we dearly love him!
RSVP: Please respond with a yes or no to Jeanine by July 28th. Call at 555-5555 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: The pool and hot tub will be open and available - please bring a suit and a towel if you'd like to hop in! Dinner, dessert, and drinks will be served, but feel free to BYOB!
It's that simple. Complete your invitations and you'll want to mail them 3 to 4 weeks before the date of the party, to give guests plenty of time to clear their schedules and RSVP with a yes! Using the above tips, your 50th birthday party invitations will be a snap... now to prepare the rest of the party!
