Chinese Theme Party Invitations

Depending on whether your party will be a Chinese New Year celebration, a Chinese themed birthday party, or a dinner party, there are a variety of different ideas for your invitations:

One idea is to print your invitation in Chinese and then write the translation underneath the Chinese characters. You can find out how to translate back and forth from English to traditional Chinese on

You can design your party invitation to look like an ancient scroll.

Instead of mailing your invitations, you can personally deliver them inside Chinese take out boxes.
