Aside from the basic details of the event, a party invitation might include a simple background with bright, festive colors and fonts; images, illustrations or photos that fit your theme; and space for contact details so that guests can RSVP.

Classic party invitation fonts include Ostrich Sans, Nevis Bold, Century Schoolbook, Bookeyed Nelson, Champagne, Everything Holiday, Playlist or Priscilla. Script fonts are readable but elegant, handwritten fonts more sentimental, serif fonts timeless and san serif fonts more modern. For the body text, serif and sans serif look best.

When writing out your party invitation, be sure to mention the occasion, the time and date, location, theme, names of the hosts and RSVP details. Make it clear whether the party is catered or BYOB. If your party has a theme, design your text around it.
