Mexican Tile-Inspired 50th Wedding Anniversary Party Invitations

A 50th wedding anniversary is most definitely an occasion to be celebrated!  Lizzely from LizzyB Loves had the pleasure of designing her in-law’s 50th anniversary party invitations earlier this summer.  Lizzely drew her inspiration from the traditional tile work surrounding the celebration venue, a 1930s hotel in Mexico, and mid-century modern design.

From Lizelly:  The anniversary celebration will be held in Ensenada, Mexico in a circular ballroom dating back to the 1930s, which used to be a casino and hotel in its prime and later a military fort during WWII.  I took inspiration from the various tile work surrounding the venue and created an assortment of pattern motifs used throughout the invitation suite.

My brother-in-law served as the client for this project, and early on he said that he wanted the tile motifs surrounding the venue to be used in the design.  He also wanted to give the invitations a Mad Men feel, so I came up with a Mad-Mex theme with the use of clean and modern text paired with the Mexican tile designs.

Thanks Lizelly!

  1. Thanks Nole for featuring the invitations!! These were truly a labor of love and a gift for my in-laws as these were totally created by hand, from the illustrations, printing, cutting, and assemblage.
