Invite them well in advance of the event, allowing them to make alternate plans if desired. Let them know the time the party starts and the expected end time. Let them know you do not want to bother them and that their privacy is important to you. Make sure you are observing any noise or gathering ordinances.

If they are hesitant, offer to help them with something to offset the nuisance of the event.

Always, always, always let them know in advance. Have a great time!!!

Ditto below. Invite them. If you don't, they'll be more likely to complain, and that would spoil the party. Even if they decline the invitation, they'll be less likely to complain about the noise later.

I would both warn and invite them.

What would you want your neighbors to do?
