Default 90th Birthday Invitation

ok ladies... im feeling very uncreative and I need some ideas. Grandma is turning 90 and we are having a party... not too many guests so I can make a fabulous invitation. Any ideas???

Id love to incorporate a photo of her... maybe as a child??

Thanks in advance!

How about a photo of her as a girl with the "title" of "Guess who's turning ..."


and the inside would say "90" with a fairly current photo and the party details.


Embellish as desired!

Maybe make it like a newspaper with her picture and the headline - extra, extra. Just thinking here!

My father-in-law turned 90 a few years ago, and I posted the invitations (and rsvp cards) that I made HERE. I've also attached a pic.

I really like the idea of the newspaper... i might be able to throw in some fun facts about the year she was born... price of gas, milk... etc.
