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.

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