Modern B’nai Mitzvah Invitations

Tova from Brighten My Day Studio created these super-colorful and modern invitations last year for the B’nai Mitzvah of twins Sydney and Robert.  The family wanted to go with a slightly different approach to the design, so Tova created the entire invitation suite using a colorful orange and purple color palette, complete with pop-art inspired save the date and envelope liners!

From Tova: This family loves art.  Their home is a gorgeous canvas for the amazing, bold artwork – from life-size mosaics to the classic paintings – that hang on each wall.  Since the evening celebration was being held at their home, we wanted the invitation to reflect their home and the party to come: bold color, modern feel, some drama and a nod to art.


The save the date was a great introduction: cherry red and beet papers featuring white engraved text and hand-illustrated Lichtenstein-inspired drawing of Sydney and Robert (which was mounted 3-dimesionally to the card).  In-town guests received a folded card, while out-of-towners received a tri-fold card which contained the weekend events.

We wanted to keep the design of the invitation really simple and clean, to showcase a huge wow factor in the color palate and the invitation size.  The invitation was 9″ x 11″ (huge!) and tri-plexed into a heavy-weight board of tangerine on the front and beet on the back.  The accompanying enclosure cards were also duplexed – tangerine on one side, purple on the back – in the same style as the invitation, but in a variety of modern shapes.

The typefaces were a fun mix of clean and crisp, paired with a fresh, hand-writing inspired script.  And the kicker – the envelope liner was the Lichtenstein image from the save the date, blown-up and digitally printed in colors to mesh with the new tangerine and beet color palette.  Custom stamps were created for both the invitation envelope and the response card.  And, the envelopes were addressed in white gouache calligraphy by the uber-talented Crystal Kluge.

I LOVED creating this invitation, in huge part because the Goldstein family was so incredible and trusting.  I am still obsessed with the color palette – and just love that we were able to incorporate the “photo” of the twins into the pieces in such a funky, non-traditional way.

Beautiful work as always Tova!  Thank you so much for sharing these incredible invitations!
