Featured on 100 Layer Cakelet – Fiesta Safari Birthday Party

A few months back, Lisa, Co-Founder of A Charming Fete contacted me about customizing my black and gold safari invitation to fit with a fiesta theme she was working on for her Daughter’s second birthday. I was super happy with how this colorful version came out and blown away when Lisa sent me the photos, what a vision! I’m ecstatic that this party was featured on 100 Layer Cake-let, it really deserves the recognition and I’m so happy that I had a small part in it!

Rock Band & Converse Themed Event and Invitation Design

I just realized I updated my portfolio with this design but never posted it here on the blog, oopsies! For this special party, the client was inspired by Rock Band and Converse and it was my job to merge those ideas into a cohesive invitation suite, it was super fun to work on! I started out by designing an emblem for the event and then worked that into the invitation design. I really wanted the invitation to be memorable for this special occasion. They had quite a bit of information for different aspects of the event that we split up onto multiple cards then pulled everything together with the die cut, foil stamped belly band. The emblem really helped tie the whole event together from the invitation suite to t-shirts, cups and even gobo lighting on the dance floor!

Gold and White Safari Animal Baby Shower Invitation

I hosted a baby shower for my best friend yesterday and it was so much fun! I’ll share some photos of the party soon but here are the invitations that I designed for it. Her nursery is going to be safari themed so we had a modern, gold and white color scheme with some cute gold animal details to tie it together. P.S. This design is now available in my Etsy shop!

Design Portfolio: 2013 Touro Infirmary Foundation Gala Invitation

I have some new work to share with y’all today! I absolutely love designing invitation suites and this one was no exception. Touro Infirmary was looking for a special piece to invite guests to their annual fundraiser. We decided to go with a larger format for both the Save The Date and the Invitation so that it would really stand out in the mail. To add a touch of elegance to their recognizable brand colors we used a midnight blue stock with silver ink. Simple but effective! I knew that placing all of the names on the tree wasn’t going to be easy but it turned out great and is a special way to recognize all of the founders. And now it’s time for me to start designing the 2014 invites for them!

Party Animal Streetcar Invitation and Decor

Back in March I designed this invitation for little Cameron’s first birthday party. The party was really just for the adults and they requested a New Orleans theme with a kiddie twist. Below are how the invites turned out and Coco Photo Nola‘s photos from the event, it turned out SO cute, I can’t get over it!
