Restaurant anniversary invitation cards are often confused as regular greeting cards due to their size and design. But if you want your anniversary invitation cards to get its recipient’s attention right away, you should make sure that you write your anniversary event title legibly and conspicuously.
If you are planning an anniversary event for a company or organization, make sure that the card’s title design reflects the business entity’s brand image. And, depending on the mood or atmosphere you wish to create for the event, make sure you design the card title to reflect this.
To illustrate, if you are planning to celebrate a fiftieth-year anniversary party at a restaurant, you may use gold textures and fonts for the event title. And, to keep up with the trends, you may come up with a corresponding hashtag for the event. Following a golden color scheme will also help give your event a luxurious and formal feel.
Another important information to include in an invitation card is the event’s date and time. If you are creating a foldable invitation card, you may print the date and time on the inner page of the card. However, if you are creating a flyer invitation or a single page invitation card, the event date and time will need to be printed on the main page.
In terms of design, it is up to your own preferences if you want to follow the same typography fonts and styles used in your event title or not. Most often, the event date and time are written with smaller font styles but still follow the same typeface.
Of course, a printable invitation card will not be complete without a place to direct your recipients to visit. In addition to the event date and time, you also need to make sure to include the location where the anniversary event or party will be held. It is best to include the full address and you may also add location markers or prominent establishments near the venue. This way, your guests will not get lost when traveling towards your anniversary party.
The presence of an event dress code is another important piece of information that should be included in a restaurant invitation card. This especially applies to formal events like gala and fine dining anniversary dinner events.
When writing this piece of information on your anniversary invitation card, you may place it at the end of your invitation. Here are sample wording that you may follow: Black Tie, Formal Wear, Cocktail Wear, Casual, or even Superhero-themed costumes (if you are following a costume party for your anniversary celebration).
When creating restaurant anniversary invitation cards, you should always include RSVP information. This way, your guests can tell you ahead of time if they can make it to your event or not. This also allows you to accurately prepare the food, chairs, drinks, and other materials that you need before the event itself.
RSVP information can simply be conveyed by writing ‘RSVP please’ on the invitation card design. And, to ensure that your guests RSVP for your event, do not forget to add your contact information. As mentioned above, it is important to make sure that there are different kinds of card designs that you wish to create
As mentioned above, it is important to include the event organizer’s or host’s contact information on the anniversary invitation. This allows your card recipients to contact you right away if they have other questions about the event. Contact information may range from a phone number, social media links, email addresses, and even dedicated web pages.
Lastly, a minor thing to add to your anniversary invitation card design is the restaurant’s own branding design. These design elements do not have to take up a large portion of your invitation card. You may add graphic design elements like a restaurant logo design or even the restaurant name written in its original font style. This will help aid customers to recognize the location where the event is being held.
In addition, you may also add other restaurant details like its contact number and a small map or a set of directions to the dining establishment. By including all these in your anniversary invitation card, your guests will be reassured that you have thought of everything that they may possibly need just to get to the venue location.
The different items listed above is not an all-exhaustive list. You may add or remove any of them depending on the scale and motif of the anniversary event you are trying to host.
Ready to print anniversary invitation templates can be drab and boring after printing them out. This is perhaps because they are all just two-dimensional objects. So, if you wish to add more glam into your anniversary invitations, you may take a hint from the different decorating techniques we have compiled below.
Yes, if you want to add more dimension to your invitation card design, you may add small objects that will help bring out the 3D-ness of your card project.

Another decorating technique you can use for your anniversary invitation card is the use of papercutting projects.

Pop-ups in cards also add an element of surprise in your invitation card.
These techniques are perfect for those who wish their anniversary invitations to be as unique as their own personalities. Also, when you create restaurant anniversary invitation cards using these design techniques, your invitations may also serve as a memorabilia or souvenir for your guests.
Origami, or paper folding, is another design technique that you can apply to your anniversary invitation cards after printing them out. You may attach small origami designs into the card or you may transform an origami flower (for example) into an invitation card design.
This design technique will require more thinking through and free time since you will most likely need to create the cards yourself. Follow this design technique if you are planning an event that will only be attended by a small number of people.
