Happy Monday everyone! Before we jump back into recaps from the National Stationery Show, I couldn’t resist sharing the wonderful invitations that Lisa from Good on Paper created for her son’s 4th birthday! Lisa creates the most beautiful birthday party invitations (and announcements) for her two boys, and it’s always an inspiration to see the creative themes she comes up with year after year. For her elder son, Lucas, this year is all about superheroes – but in a really fun way!
From Lisa: While Lucas loves all kinds of super heroes – Captain America, Flash, Spider-Man, etc. – I really wanted the party to be more about the super powers of Lucas and his friends and to be a little less commercialized. The invitations were printed in black and green on heavy white cotton paper with a clean, minimal design highlighting Super Lucas.
Each invitation set included custom tattoos and instructions packaged in a small glassine envelope for each guest. The tattoos had the guest’s name (i.e. Super Connor) as well as super hero speech bubbles with expressions like “WOW”, “OK”, “YES”, and “COOL” instead of the usual “POW” and “BANG” expressions. The envelopes were lined with a pattern of the same super hero expressions.
Such a great idea! Thank you so much Lisa!
