So, now that you know how many people can attend your gathering/party respecting the gathering restrictions in your province (or region within your province), it's time to extend the invitation.
By mentioning the following up front, you'll be putting your guests more at ease so that when they show up they can relax and have a good time without any worry. You too.
Position the invite as "having people over to relax and chill". Chill is the key word - it's a party, but a chill one. Chill can be fun!
If it is possible, do it outside (on a patio/deck) and let guests know it when you invite them. If you are inside, adjust your seating accordingly and let guests know about adjustments you've made (ie: tell them you have moved things around to provide for distancing).
If you have a pet(s), keep it/them out of where you are gathering while your guests are there.
No one will mind. Safety first in these times.
When guests ask if they can bring anything, suggest BYOB & a disposable cup/glass (or tell them you have disposable cups/glasses). In these circumstances both you and they will feel more comfortable!
One last thing, when they ask what time you want them to come, stagger the times slightly and ask them to text you when they arrive.
