For a fun and casual birthday why not make fun of the fact that your 'getting old'
Ticket invitations are always fun and are suitable for any age birthday.
What was your era growing up as a kid. for me it was the eighties - pacman, space invaders and Jem and the holograms. Find some images that bring back the memories for you and your aging friends. lol. In case your memory is failing you, you can check out if you were an eighties child
Make a collage photo invitation with photos of you from each era, say every 10 years or so starting from when you were just a little baby.

This very cool 30th invitation was made by Michael. I don't know exactly what program it is that he used but it is likely to be Photoshop or something similar. This is some very talented work that's for sure! I will try to squeeze out some more details from him about how he made this invite...
It was so long ago (showing my age now) when I made
this invite that I really couldn't tell you what font that is that I
used. I'm thinking it might just be an ordinary serif one, but with
some shadow effect on it. It's been so long since I used Photoshop!
The rest of it: tombstone, grass and sky are all stock images pasted poorly together and lots of inexpert clone stamping. I wanted it to look surreal so didn't worry too much about the light being wrong. The sky had a purple filter applied to it - we don't get skies like that in Cardiff!
