There’s no doubt that planning a birthday celebration is work. But there’s one part of the process that’s actually fun — choosing the invitations! That’s where this list comes in. Here, you’ll discover some of our favorite men’s birthday party invitation designs to celebrate a special guy in your life. Whether you’re looking for something sporty, silly, vibrant, or cool, get ready to find a birthday party invite that suits him and matches your birthday party theme. 

What to Look for in Men’s Birthday Invitations

As with any party invite, finding your ideal adult birthday party invitation comes down to your preferences and what ties into your party activity or theme. Here’s how to narrow down your options to choose the right invite for him.


When selecting a men’s birthday invitation, think about whether your event has a distinct party theme. For instance, are you hosting a game night or planning a casino-style party? If so, consider inviting guests with eye-catching game night invites or a Casino Royale invitation.

If you’re planning something more casual like a birthday brunch or dinner and beer, look for an invite that matches that vibe instead. Opt for something that feels chill, cozy, or cool with imagery, shapes, or illustrations that fit what you want. Choosing a themed invite also means you’re more likely to get fun themed birthday cards from your guests in return.


When it comes to men’s birthday invitations, you can’t go wrong with classic color palettes. Shades of blue, green, gray, and red are popular choices and you can either stick to one main color or mix a few to create a specific look.

There’s no reason you can’t feature any color you love on your invites, though. Ditch the more traditional hues and go wild with neon yellows and pinks (like this Neon Party invitation) for an upbeat, retro vibe.


One of the most important things to consider when looking for men’s birthday invitations is customization. You want to be able to take your editable digital invitation and personalize it.

Fortunately, Greenvelope’s high-quality invitation cards let you customize as much (or as little) as you want. Have fun playing around with the layout, colors, fonts, and photo placeholders to make the birthday invitation template feel completely new. Add your message and party details and you have an easy DIY invite that feels personal and looks professional.
