Special requirements: (e.g. fancy dress, swimming costume, Henry may even be so rude as to ask for a huge present!)
Please reply to:
Remember to include capital letters at the start of peoples’ names, days of the week, months of the year, places, etc.
Decorate your invitation to make it as attractive as possible.
