Etiquette for prix fixe where everyone is paying their own way?

Hi, I'm sure there is an answer to this, but I've never done this before and I don't know what it is...

I'm planning a party for my mom's 70th birthday this summer. There will probably be about 25 people, so I'm looking for a restaurant with a private room. However, we're planning to have everyone pay their own way since we can't afford to pay for everyone.

So it seems like with most places that have private rooms, you have to do a special prix-fixe menu for the party. So I'm trying to figure out how to word the invitation so that the expectation is clear but doesn't seem rude. From what I've gathered from etiquette sites, it's okay to do this, but it's all in how you word it. Any advice?
