How to Word Invitations for a 90th Birthday Party

Updated March 23, 2017

Ninety years, by human standards, is a long time. When a person celebrates a 90th birthday, she has witnessed nearly a century of changes. The celebrant has lived a life filled with nearly every imaginable experience. When composing an invitation for a 90th birthday party, keep a tone of respect and humour. Let your wording resonate with the person whose life the party affirms. Match your invitation wording to the type of party to which your guests are invited.

Celebrate the life of the guest of honour beginning with your invitations. Devote a line or two to the celebrant. Write, for example,

You are invited

As we gather to admire her wisdom and life

Write a 90th birthday party invitation with a style to match the guest of honour. Refer, for instance, to the celebrant's renowned sense of humour. Such an invitation could read:

Join Jonas to celebrate 90 years of love and laughter
