Oooh, these vibrant pink hand lettered birthday party invitations from Meg at Pour L’Amour Creative are so fun! Inspired by colorful Otomi textiles, the bright fuchsia pink and playful hand lettering are the perfect ingredients for a third birthday party invitation. Meg even added a watercolor splash in a lighter rose pink to add some texture to the invitation. So cute!
From Meg: The concept behind this invitation was simple, yet fun and vibrant: mixing hand lettering with type. The production process started with the colors that we wanted to incorporate – fuchsia and orange (the birthday girl’s favorite). Though the birthday party did not have a specific theme, we were playing off the Mexican Otomi linens and colors that were going to be present throughout the party décor. Otomi linens are known for their vibrant and rich colors and we wanted the invitation colors to incorporate that vibrancy.
Secondly, I wanted to highlight the hand lettering on the invitation. The art of the design is the lettering itself. I started with the a few different styles, and then narrowed down the lettering style to have an irregular feel to it. Since these invitations were for a third birthday party, the lettering style I choose to use was a non-formal style with a lot of “bounce” to it – playful and youthful.
The invitations were printed on 110lb cotton Lettra paper. Post printing, I added a watercolor splash in a rose pink to add to the overall design. Since it was hand done after printing, no two invitations were alike and that uniqueness made for a beautiful collection of pieces going out in the mail. Lastly, I hand lettered the envelope addresses using a bright pink pen to match the lettering style of the invitation. I wanted the excitement of the party to begin once the guest received the envelope in the mail.
