Invitations to Latino birthday parties invitations, on the other hand, are more like friendly suggestions. Even if you do receive a printed invitation, you can feel free to be flexible about the starting time—if you show up to a Latino birthday party any less than 1 hour late, chances are good you will be among the first guests and nothing will be ready for the party yet. Also, a Latino family would never dream of putting an end time on a party invitation. You can leave whenever you want, and sometimes we stay so long the kids end up falling asleep and just the adults are left partying.
