In Chinese culture red is considered very lucky and can also be a vibrant color that is perfect for any season. Birthday invitations in this classic color can make your celebration, perhaps your entire year, full of luck and good fortune.
The Chinese believe that red is not only good luck, but a strong symbol of happiness. This makes it another reason to pick red to celebrate your birthday. Chinese symbols can also be a stylish addition to your Asian-themed invitations and party decor. Consider hiring a calligrapher to put some appropriate symbols on your invitations for additional luck and happiness.
Red is also a good color for your birthday celebration as in Western cultures red is a color for passionate endeavors. While you probably won?t want your guests displaying their passionate side, you can still use red on your birthday invitations and d?cor to spice up your party and bring out the wild and crazy side. A deep, rich red is also said to stimulate the appetite. The perfect color to get your birthday bash going.
Whatever accents you choose ? Asian-inspired ? or otherwise, keep red in your theme to add luck, happiness and flair to your party. While red is a strong color, it fits in well with many Chinese elements and can turn a dull party into a brilliant Asian-inspired celebration.
