I am planning a 90th birthday party for my mother and need help wording the invitation. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Join us to celebrate Mom's (or name) 90 years of life, love, family and friendship.
When my father died we had a celebration service for the family. Friends and relatives talked about the influence and mentoring he'd done, told cute stories etc. I often thought it would have been nicer to have done a celebration for his life while he was with us. He would have been very touched.
I would invite people to come to a celebration of her life and accomplishments and include a note to please bring along a short anecdote or memory to add to a celebration guest book for her to keep. Make sure to have several sheets of paper for those who may not remember to bring their stories. Taking photos of the party and adding them into the book would be a nice touch. Good luck:)
Please come celebrate, share and honor my mom's/(name) 90th birthday!
Hope you have a wonderful party!!

I am having a 75th birthday party for my father-in-law who is a huge hunter. I am having the guests come dressed in camo. I need help wording the invitation with that in there. Any ideas?
By Lesley from Nashville
Now to your question, take a look at this.
The terrain is rough. The prey is crafty.
But the great white hunter is
once again on the prowl.
Suit up in your cammies and join the hunt.
As (name) stalks a new deadlier prey -
the mighty 75th year.
His hunting party forms at
(time) on (date)
near (father's name) campsite.
He has pitched his camp at his favorite site -
Come armed and dressed to drive
hunter and prey into the battle of the year.
Optional: Send your confirmation and ammo will be on hand. Further details can be obtained from the guide (name and number of person throwing party). (01/10/2010)
I would like to know what to say on the invitation for an 80th birthday party where only monetary gifts will be accepted.

Where are manners today? Yes, it is rude to ask for money no matter what. You could ask that guests not bring gifts or donate toward a special charity, but to ask for money is still tacky in this day and age.
Is the birthday person planning a trip? You could ask that friends donate items to use on his trip. If the person is in real financial problems due to medical bills you could have a fund raiser, but please don't cheapen a birthday party by asking friends to give money. (04/23/2010)
Then get a nice big branch, and add colorful clothespins on the table where it's to rest. You can start the "leafing out" of that ailing tree by adding as many as you can manage of your own dollar bills.
Other than something "comical", I can think of absolutely no way to handle such a request, and hopefully, everyone invited is a good friend or family member who will understand completely.
Wishing you the best, and happy birthday to the birthday guy or gal. Quite an accomplishment to reach the age of 80. We should all be so lucky!
