Thanks too much for inviting us to join your son’ s birthday party. I have seen the lovely baby before and it is worth celebrating for him and your happy family.
But I regret that I cannot go to the party at that time. You know our company has a branch in America and it has something serious happened which needs my immediate decision. Thus I should go back as soon as possible.
I am really sorry for my absence. Hope you will have a wonderful party and a good time.
