Halloween Birthday Invitations: Two Parties in One!

Aug 31, 2007
There's an old saying that a person who was born on Halloween can see and talk to spirits. There was also a belief that people who were born on Halloween are creepy and rather odd. But in this modern technological age, we know better. People born on this special date can be very normal, and rather sweet! Sweet enough to deserve cleverly-designed Halloween birthday invitations, certainly.

For someone who's celebrating his or her birthday on or near this favorite holiday, Halloween birthday parties are pretty much a given. You can celebrate more than one occasion with just one party! Besides the savings you could make by rolling two gatherings into one, you could make the celebrant feel more special if you acknowledge the holiday that coincides with his or her birthday, as well. Making Halloween birthday invitations would be a great way to express your appreciation for this special day.

It may be hard to find ready-made Halloween-themed birthday invitations in bookstores and stationery shops. Halloween is generally not thought of as a "happy" occasion, after all - most of the motifs used for this holiday are associated with doom and gloom. Even the colors are not so festive! Halloween-themed decor is typically done in red, orange and/or black. Not a typical color combination to find on anything related to birthdays!

So instead of going from one end of the shop to the other trying to find a design that brings the best of both worlds together, as it were, why not make your own design? Combine familiar motifs and color combos in order to come up with witty, eye-catching invitation covers. An old-fashioned Dracula-type vampire wearing a party cap, for example, is sure to be a scream. You can also have a smiling witch riding on a broomstick, ready to deliver a birthday cake! Or a few lines of cartoon bats with their wings spread out, spelling out "You're Invited!" on their bellies. A cutaway orange pumpkin lit up by birthday candles would be another good design idea.

Birthday invitations sent out on or near Halloween need not be drab. Some people choose to make out their Halloween party invitations in black or red paper, and this may work for a birthday party invitation as well. If the person you're going to throw the party for is inclined toward gothic themes, you should have no problem with sticking with dark or scary colors - but if the birthday celebrant happens to be the cheerful sort, your Halloween birthday invitations could have some glitter on them, or colorful paper, even if you're using dark-colored cards.
