I’m planning a surprise birthday party for my husband next month. I need some ideas on how to write the invitation so I decided to ask the smartest and wittiest bunch of people I know. Unfortunately they were all busy so I came here instead.
Anyway, I have a picture of my husband from when he was about 5, sitting by a birthday cake, that I plan to use on the invitation. He’s got his hands cupped under his chin and a huge smile on his face. As for the wording, here’s what I’ve come up with so far:
Timmy is turning 30!
(insert picture here)
Make his birthday wish come true and join us in celebrating
on Saturday, Sept. 15 at the …
(Shhhh … don’t tell, it’s a surprise!)
In honor of Tim’s birthday, Val is springing for karaoke, so be ready to sing!
Tim will be arriving for the big reveal at 8 p.m.
Karaoke will begin at 8:30 p.m.
We’d love to see you there!
What am I missing? Any clever sayings about being 30 that I could add? Do you think people will take the hint and show up prior to 8 to yell “surprise” or do I need to be more specific about that?
