1940s Theme Party Invitation Ideas
1940s can be such a romantic time for many and planning a 1940s theme
party can be a lot of fun to try and capture the spirit of that time.
When it comes to your invitations, do what you can to bring that spirit
to your guests with these 1940s theme party invitation ideas.
Theme Party Invitation Ideas #1: Depending on your timeframe for the
party (what part of the 40s you are placing your party) you
might consider inviting your guests to a Victory party as though the
war was over! Two dates to consider in your invitations are May 8,
1945 (V-E Day celebrating the Allies victory in Europe) and August
14, 1945 (V-J Day celebrating the victory over Japan, signaling the
end of World War II.)
Theme Party Invitation Ideas #2: Decorate your invitations like a newspaper
headline. There are SO many different possible headlines to choose from.
Just choose one that you feel will provide the right mood for your party
(i.e. which part of the 40s you are shooting for, etc.)
Theme Party Invitation Ideas #3: Invite your guests to a community
dance to say goodbye to all of the soldiers being shipped out in the
morning. Conclude the party with a formal goodbye to all of the men
in the room and that everyone will be hoping for a safe return. That
would be a good time for each couple to give each other a goodbye

Theme Party Invitation Ideas #5: Grab the famous image of Uncle
Sam pointing his finger out saying WE WANT YOU! (to come to the
party, of course
Theme Party Invitation Ideas #6: Disguise the invitation like a
draft letter from the US military. Explain that their number
has been called at they must report to the Davis Home Military
Base (for example, or wherever your party will be held) immediately!
