Kelly’s Citrus-Inspired Bridal Shower Invitations

Today is such a special day: I get to share the invitations for my friend Kelly’s bridal shower! Kelly is both an old friend and one of my first contributors here at OSBP – but you might also know her from her own blog, Studio DIY. Kelly’s bridal shower invitations were the result of a collaboration between Isabel of 9th Letter Press and Kelly’s bridesmaid (and our mutual friend) Janice of Bellwether Events (who knows just a little thing or two about throwing a good party). The citrus-inspired invitation design is so much fun – and so Kelly!

From Isabel: Janice from Bellwether Events and I worked together to create a bridal shower invitation suite that’s fun, fresh and super bright. We went with citrus hues like key lime, grapefruit, and lemon. I LOVE all these pretty vibrant colors together! Kelly had no idea that 9th Letter Press was behind the invitations as Janice wanted to surprise her. I only wish I could have seen her face when Kelly opened the invitation!

Janice enclosed the invitations in a box with a citrus patterned liner, fun stamps and sugared tropical flavored candy. The suite included the invitation, an information sheet, RSVP card and envelope, bingo game set, menu, placemat, thank you cards, and all the fixings to make the box look fabulous.

From Kelly: I am such a huge fan of 9th Letter Press. I was floored when I got my shower invitation in the mail and realized Isabel was behind them! It was such a happy surprise! I told my bridesmaids that I love a good theme through and through, and Isabel’s design set the stage for quite the “Pucker Up” bash! I was getting calls and emails from family and friends gushing about every last detail… and I can’t blame them! It’s a total dream come true to have one of Isabel’s designs just for me!

Jamie’s Modern Hand Lettered Bat Mitzvah Invitations

I’m completely in love with these bat mitzvah invitations from J at Grey Snail Press! With a fuchsia and gray color palette, the letterpress printed invitations feature J’s signature hand lettering, modern design details, and non-traditional RSVP card. So fun and so modern – everything a bat mitzvah invitation should be!

From J: I worked with Jamie’s mom to create a bright and bold invitation for her daughter’s Bat Mitzvah ceremony and reception. Jamie requested a gray and fuchsia color palette, so we chose envelopes, papers, and ink colors accordingly.

The invitations were letterpress printed by Hounddog Press in fuchsia and light gray ink on bright white Lettra, then mounted on fuchsia backers. Fuchsia envelopes were lined with a gray and white chevron pattern.

RSVP cards were printed on fuchsia card stock in white ink with a simple J logo. They wanted a large blank area for guests to write messages rather than traditional RSVP options.

Waverley’s Ombre First Birthday Party Invitations

I’m a big fan of the whimsical illustration of Catherine from Printerette Press – particularly when it comes to birthday party invitations (Catherine created Sophie’s first birthday party invitations last year)! And today Catherine is back with another first birthday party invitation project! Waverley’s adorable invitations feature an ombre effect in tones of peach and pink along with a floral envelope liner. Love!

From Catherine: This is a custom project we recently worked up for an adorable little girl’s first birthday party. The inspiration given to us by her mom – Lesleigh from pearls on a string – was “peachy tones ombre” for the invitation and “soft grandma florals” for the envelope liner. We chose to stay in a peachy/pinkish color palette throughout, but added a touch of brown in the floral envelope liner to give it that “grandma” feel the client was looking for. The final touch was ordering magnets of Waverley herself to add an extra fun element to the overall invitation.

Chelsea + Nick’s Night Under the Stars Wedding Invitations

You might remember Chelsea and Nick’s fun navy and white gingham save the dates from a few months back – and today they’re back with their wedding invitations! Created by Rachel from Robinson Press, these beautiful wedding invitations feature a navy and neon red color palette and the Vermont landscape under the stars!

From Rachel: In keeping with the Vermont theme of their save the date, Chelsea and Nicholas wanted a landscape under the stars for their wedding invitation suite, so an illustration of the snake river became the centerpiece of the suite. They also loved this quote from poet Nikki Giovanni: We love because it is the only true adventure.

This is a three piece invitation suite, plus double-sided his and hers patterned informal stationery, with a color palette of navy and neon red. The invitation suite was letterpress printed on bright white 100% cotton paper and tied with a gauzy italian cotton ribbon from Studio Carta.
