You can extend the invitation - it's often done; however, most professors will politely decline. Many students find a 'hero' in especially patient, attentive teachers who inspire above and beyond their job description. Sometimes these individuals will attend, so it's certainly worth taking the chance. It would be well advised however, to have a rather low key party without over-indulging being encouraged and with a set time frame to further encourage it being more acceptable for a professor to show up. Expressing that in the invitation, ie: 'dinner party from 7 to 10', or 'cocktail party from 8-11' may work better than 'party hearty starting at 8 'til ? ' You get the idea
