An 18th birthday party is a special event in the life of a teenager. Even though your child is growing up, it does not mean she is too old for a party. Make some personalised birthday invitations to give to your child's friends. Homemade cards make the perfect keepsake to mark a special occasion. Create the cards using your child's favourite colours or a funny theme. Avoid using themes that are too juvenile. Keep the invitations on the adult side. Buy nice envelopes to go with your customised invitations.
