If you're having a celebration soon where breakfast will be served, you'll need to know how to write the invitations so that guests will know what to expect when to arrive. It also sets the mood for the breakfast: casual, formal, indoor, outdoor, etc. Including all the important details about your breakfast party, and writing the invitations with fun phrases and important keywords, will give your friends and loved ones a chance to prepare for an event they won't want to miss.

Start the invitation with phrasing that will give guests an impression of the type of event you're hosting. For instance, begin the invite with "Join us for a delightful morning meal and tea" if the breakfast will be somewhat formal. For a more casual and upbeat event, phrasing like "(guest of honour)'s getting married, and we're celebrating over breakfast!" If it's just a casual get-together with friends, personalise it and make it fun by using wordplay, rhymes and puns, like "rise and dine" or "Eggs at the Benedicts' home" (if you're so eponymously inclined.)
State where the breakfast will be held; give guests the full address with the city, state and Postcode. If you are sending invitations to people who are not familiar with the area, you can include minor directions after the address, such as "across the street from (well-known shopping centre)" in parenthesis after the address. Write the time the breakfast will start, as well as the ending time for the event. This should be written out completely as well: "from eight to eleven a.m."
Include the RSVP at the bottom of the invitation. Provide both an e-mail address and phone number to make it convenient for guests to confirm their attendance. Write (or print) any additional information concerning the breakfast underneath the RSVP. For example, if the event is a surprise, tell or remind guests of this on the invitation. If the celebration is potluck-style, ask each guest to bring a dish or party supplies (cups, plates, etc.), and to inform you of what they will be bringing when they RSVP for the breakfast.
