@soontobeMrsBoo:  Why did you write out “two thousand thirteen” and leave “23rd” as numeric? Accepted American usage would be “Saturday February twenty-third two thousand thirteen”. I would not capitalize the numbers.

MrBoo needs his full name complete with title and surname: “Mr. Boo Fog”. That would be proper even if you didn’t have the possibility of a father/step-father confusion since he is unrelated to the host and hostess. You are their daughter: that is why you don’t get a title, and you don’t get a surname unless your surname is different from theirs.

no “and” before Mr Fog’s name: as a linking word between people’s names on formal correspondence “and” implies that a marriage still exists.

I always use “at” in my venue line, but you have a point: no-one is going to mistake “the Middleborough Danish Club” as anything but a venue, so “at” is redundant. I never bother with “to be held”; I just start the line with “at”.

I would not capitalize “four”, “clock” or “afternoon”.
