How fun are these birthday party invitations from designer Lauren Chism? Crawfish and cake? Such a great idea! And total bonus points for a party concept (and invitation!) that appeals to both kids and adults!
From Lauren: Ben’s mom, Mary, and I worked together last year on a crawfish boil birthday invitation for Ben’s first birthday. The party was such a hit, that she wanted to do it again for his second birthday, but with a little different twist.
She came up with a ‘Crawfish & Cake’ theme and it was a really fun challenge to create something for the same person, with the same theme, but still making it unique for this year’s party. I think I achieved that with the long, skinny format and stacked typography. They are bright and fun and just make you want to be outside celebrating!
From the invitation design, I created coordinating stationery and a logo of sorts, which Mary used on cups and napkins. I love how everything turned out – they are playful for the kids but it’s still a party that adults want to attend. I know I wanted to!
