It’s been a while since I had the pleasure of featuring a Bar Mitzvah invitation, so I was thrilled when Jill from PS Paper sent over this baseball-inspired invitation that she designed for Ashton’s Bar Mitzvah in San Francisco. Jill incorporated Ashton’s love for the San Francisco Giants throughout the invitation suite, using a real baseball as the actual invitation. So fun!
From Jill: Earlier this year Ashton (a huge San Francisco Giants fan) had the most amazing Bar Mitzvah celebration at AT&T park planned by Laurie Arons Special Events. It was a once in a lifetime experience for the lucky attendees. Guests were able to swing in the actual batting cages, which was then followed by dinner and dancing in the club level of the park.
First we designed the save the date. We wanted to do something that would be fun and also get people excited. We decided to do an old fashioned event poster with a photo of Ashton. The poster kept the exact location of the celebration a secret, but gave the theme of the party and got people guessing about where the location might be.
For the invitation, I was able to modify the SF Giants logo to use Ashton’s initials of AF. The AF logo was printed on a real baseball, which invited people to the party at AT&T park. We had an separate card on top of the box inviting guests to the Bar Mitzvah service. At the reception, each table was named for a beloved Giants player – guests were given baseball trading cards for the player that corresponded with their table.
