How to Write Letters of Invitation to My Birthday

Writing a personalised invitation to your birthday party is a meaningful gesture towards guests. Too often people print off a generic invitation that gives the same information to all whom are invited. Make guests feel welcome before they even arrive at the party by writing a personal invitation. Address each letter to individual friends or family members that are invited. Include a short message with the details of the party and how much it would mean to you for them to attend.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Address the letter to a specific guest. At the top left-hand corner of your paper, hand write or type "Dear" and the person's first name. If you are not on a first name basis with the person, or wish to make it more formal, address them with the proper title -- Mr., Mrs., Ms. or Dr.

  2. 2

    Write a sentence or two explaining the date, location and time of your upcoming birthday party. This is also a good place to add how old you are going to be if you wish to share that information.

  3. 3

    Express how much you would appreciate the presence of your guest at your birthday party.

  4. 4

    Close your letter with a closing that fits your relationship with the guest -- "Sincerely" or "Love". Include your name below the closing. Use your first name only to create a less formal feel. Write your first and last name is a more formal feel is appropriate.

Tips and warnings

  • Enclose directions to your party if necessary.
