Ideas for adult birthday invitations

Have you got an adult birthday occasion coming up? Are you going to celebrate in style? Then, you will need some great adult birthday invitations to send out or give directly. This article gives you some ideas for what to make.

Making invitations

The most typical make your own invitations are cards. You can make these easily by buying card from an arts or office supplies shop and designing your own invitation on your computer. Choose a border to line the card, add in your invitations wording, add a birthday image to it and print your invitations. Photo images
What about something different? If you have a photo image of the birthday person, how about making the whole card out of their face and printing the text on the back? You could also use one of those embarrassing baby photos to give out to friends and family. Save the date
For something different, you can give "a save the date" magnet. Print out your invite but glue a small fridge magnet onto the back. Make it in the same way but a bit smaller and use photos images or graphics. Make sure that the date stands out by using a bold text or colourful font. Laminate for durability and this can last as a reminder of the date and also of the event afterwards.

More ideas

For a more grown-up invite, how about giving out a bottle of wine or beer with the invite stuck to the label and message to bring your own! You can buy large sticker labels from an office supplies shop that you can print onto straight from the computer. Design in the same way as your card invitations and stick to the bottle. Using wine glasses
You can also use wine glasses that serve as a reminder for the day and can be used afterwards. You can buy glass paint from an art shop to paint in a design and date on the glass. Complete with a bow around the stem, this makes a nice gift as well as an invite. Party T-shirts
Printed T-shirts are fun and can be worn on the day. Choose a photo image for the design, perhaps one of those baby photos again, and have the invite text printed on the back. They are simple and easy to post and make for a talking point when you go out for the night.
