To write an excellent house party invitation, you'll need to describe exactly what kind of party you're having and target your invitation's audience. Language changes according to readership, so write to your readers. An invitation can make or break your guests' decision to go to your party, so make it interesting and engaging. Brainstorming about what you'll write in the invitation and then writing a few drafts will result in the perfect invitation.

Note who you want in attendance. Is this a house party for a birthday, graduation or just for a Friday night? If your house party is for teenagers or young adults, make it playful and fun. Likewise, if the house party is for more mature, older adults, your invitation should reflect this.
List your details concisely and clearly. According to the website Smart Learning Center, a good invitation gets to the point while also illuminating the important parts of why guests would want to attend your party. For example, you should place the date, time and location clearly--and then mention why the guests would want to come (dance contest, wine tasting or for testing out your new entertainment console, for example).
Be creative. When opening up the invitation, you may want to write, "Dear Friends, come to my apartment (555 House Ave. Town, City, Zip) for dinner at five. Then, bring out your best dance moves for a backyard dance contest--complete with the best dance music from the Brooklyn music scene." This allows you to be informative while also luring your guests to come with an emphasis on the party's features. Because this is a house party, you may also want to let them know your cross-streets or send them directions.
List your contact and RSVP information. Below the blurb about your party, you may want to give the guests something to look at along with your contact information. For example, you may list: "To RSVP, call (555) 555-5555 or e-mail Name@email.com--and be sure to check out our party's dance music list at X website." This will inspire your guests to check out the music while leaving them the information they need. You may also list some pictures of your house and any interesting photos you think may intrigue guests.
