Invite to traditional Chinese birthday celebration with envelope

This was a typical invite to a traditional Chinese birthday celebration. Chinese usually mark such milestones, in this case a 70th birthday celebration, with a banquet. Noodles and peach-shaped dumplings are usually served at the banquet as they symbolise longevity. The Longevity Diety, one of the "Three Stars" in Chinese religion, also features in this invite.
