No, I am not going to have a party for my next birthday. But if I am going to have a party, I will send a message like: hi, are you free? Come to my birthday this Sunday. About 7pm something like that

Hi Lisa, How are you? Sorry for not replying to you for a while I have been quite busy to be honest. Anyways, I am writing to you to invite you to my birthday next Thursday at 5:00pm. Yes, believe it or not a whole year has passed already. I am having a small party at my home. I have invited our close friends only and I hope you would come to the party. It will be fun like last year. Sam, Carla and Tom are coming. Suzanne might show up. It will be fun. We will play games like last year. I would be thankful if you could bring some juice. You probably have forgotten the location of my home. My building number is 365, Green Avenue and it is opposite to Hot And Spices restaurant. I hope you can come to the party as we haven’t gathered for quite sometime. wish to see you soon . MS,

I celebrate my birthday with my family and close friends every year. My mum, I, my grandmothers and my aunt prepare a lot of delicious foods such as cookies, cakes, patties and leaf wrapping.We spent amazing time together.I play games with my cousins and friends all day, I open my birthday gifts and I love all of them every time. When I was younger then now, I prepare a lot of handmade ornate invitation cards for my birthday but now, I call my guests with phone for invitation.

My birthday is 3rd of June, so it already passed. And I'm not going to have a party, so I won't invite anyone. I hadn't had a party so far, but I always go on a trip when my birthday was just around the corner. I don't have a mind to send an invitation to my friends, or ... anything like that!!!

Of course, my mom will make a party for me. But not invite too many people, because I'm not a baby anymore. And my friends just interested in sushi, tobokki, and some Korean food. But sure my mom will just invite my BF, she's really cute. : >
