Bar and Bat Mitzvah invitations are serious business. I love seeing all the creative themes for the receptions after the ceremony! These particular invitations come to us from La Petite Fleur and were created with a snow lodge and ski theme in mind, and actually incorporate custom made scarves! There are lots of other wonderful details in this suite, but I think my favorite is perhaps the most simple – the beautiful antler monogram created using Fisher’s initials.
From Leigh: Our clients, leaders in the garment industry, came to us for a custom invitation suite for their son Fisher’s Bar Mitzvah. They asked for a unique suite that incorporated a piece of clothing and that was expertly handcrafted. Along with the event’s “snow lodge/après ski” theme in mind, we designed a monogram with Fisher’s initials – FR – and a “North Fisher” logo, both of which were used throughout the invitation suite.
The North Fisher icon was applied to a custom made camel scarf, which would serve as a “pocket” for the suite’s letterpress printed, foil-stamped, die cut, two color invitation card, which was printed on embossed Barque paper.
To house the various custom-designed inserts within this Mitzvah suite, we created a die cut pocket that featured an angled front with a blind embossed logo. On the inside back of the pocket was an illustrated ski scene, which was revealed once all the inserts were stacked inside, like pieces of a puzzle. Each of the insert cards was custom illustrated to feature a portion of the overall ski and snow graphics scene.
The scarf, with its tucked-in invitation, was nestled in the bottom of the custom box. The accompanying graduated inserts and pocket were adhered to the inside lid. The custom box was then wrapped and tied with a brown suede belly band that featured the FR monogram in a white foil stamp, and secured with brown suede ribbon. Guest names and addresses were written in white calligraphy.
