70 Birthday invitations Whether it is for your husband's 70th birthday, your mother's 70th birthday or just a dear friend, make sure you represent your loved one's style with the perfect invites for the big 7-0! If they exude elegance, choose a simple black and white birthday invite design. If you've got a favorite photo of them to share - childhood photo or recent - send a birthday photo card invitation. Guests will be delighted to see a picture of their friend. The goofier the better! Of course, if you don't wish to shed any embarrassing light on them, sending a photograph from a recent formal affair, where they are dressed up is a great way to honor them as well. It's a great way to personalize your invitations for your 70th birthday.
