Hoping to host a slightly fancier affair? Simply add more detailed information and ask that guests respond.

Here’s how to create a custom birthday card so lovely, they’ll forget it’s a few days late:
Happy Belated Birthday Connor! So sorry I couldn’t be there to toast your special day (and sorry this note is a little late in arriving). I hope you had a wonderful day and I sincerely hope this coming year has lots of happiness in store for you…you deserve all the happiness in the world! Lots of love as your 29th year begins. Let’s celebrate together soon.
