When asked to create a modern, elegant Bat Mitzvah invitation suite for a young lady by the name of Sarah, I was more than happy to oblige, and equally thrilled to find out that the client wanted eye-catching colors to take center stage. Sarah and her mom, Jessica, were truly a pleasure to work with throughout the project, giving detailed feedback at every stage, in order to make sure the final product was a true representation of Sarah’s personality and the Bat Mitzvah festivities. Event planner Catherine Bachelier Smith of CBS Lifestylist collaborated with us throughout, offering valuable insight into the look and theme of the party.
This invitation suite was unique in that brunch and party cards, as well as more than one RSVP option, were needed; I also made custom envelopes (by hand) for the party cards, and these tied in with the rest of the suite. There were three versions of the thank you card design printed, in order to have Sarah’s name appear in all three of her suite’s main colors: purple, green and blue. Shimmering silver paper and envelopes served as the perfect complement to the bold color scheme. Bright silk papers in green and purple served as an elegant double backing to the silver invitation card; the finished invitation was then wrapped with a satin ribbon in coordinating bright green. Needless to say, the client was extremely happy with the final product, which gave guests a sneak peek into to the colorful festivities that would greet them on the day of the big event.
There are five individual cards included in this suite: invitation card and envelope, RSVP postcard, party card and envelope, brunch card, as well as thank you card and envelope. All designs are pictured in the slideshow above.
