    Paper invites are always classy.  And, they can be kept as a keepsake or added to a family history at a later point.  But, more people are using e-vites and facebook these days, so maybe that's just fine, too.

    For all parties we still do paper invites. More traditional in my family and a lot of the elder don't have Facebook or social media so if I'm doing the paper for them I just do it for everyone.

    Entertain the way you entertain... within your budget, in your own style. However that is.

    Make sure the older generation gets invitations in a way they understand...

    It depends upon your family and friends.  If e-mail is your norm for communication, then you might send e-vites.  You could print one for his baby book or scapbook if you wanted to.

    If you normally don't use e-mail, you could send paper invites.

    If it's not a big deal to you to have actual invites, you could just call and extend an invitation verbally.  Usually I do this when it's a less formal occasion.

    To me Facebook and evite invitations are for strictly casual affairs. Important life events should have paper invitations.
