I was completely obsessed with the idea of pirate treasure as a young child, so naturally I love the idea of a pirate-theme birthday party. Designer Megan McKean created these fun pirate map-inspired invitations for a sixth birthday party – complete with an illustrated treasure map and burned edges sure to inspire a child’s imagination to run wild. So fun!
From Megan: The client wanted an invitation for her son’s pirate themed 6th birthday. Incorporating ships, banners, and frames inspired by old maps, the illustration was digitally printed onto card. Each invitation was hand torn, stained, and the edges burned, to create a sense of excitement and adventure for the attendees. Dark gold envelopes and a nautical star seal were the finishing elements.
Also created with the invitations were two custom illustrations, one for the birthday boy Oliver as a keepsake of his special day, and a Treasure Map for younger brother Isiah, so he wouldn’t feel left out amidst all of the birthday celebrations.
Thanks so much Megan!
