Custom Bat Mitzvah save the date (digital only), © 2015 by Pam Winters
A Bat Mitzvah invitation suite with a special theme request came to me in the project pictured above, done for Hannah, the daughter of a warm, close-knit family. I later created invitations for Hannah’s brother, Jake (see the Bar Mitzvah invitation suite I designed for him here). For Hannah’s invitations, I worked with event planner Catherine Bachelier Smith of CBS Lifestylist, and mother-daughter duo, Ronit and Hannah. Hannah is a very imaginative young lady. Our mission was to come up with an invitation design that showcased Hannah’s love for the magic of Harry Potter, along with her other favorites: the ocean and a rich shade of purple. I did some research and sketching, until I came up with a visual motif that fit Hannah perfectly, which is the Harry Potter-inspired “H” (for Hannah) cut out of the middle of a purple seashell silhouette I drew. The motif appears on all pieces of the invitation suite, as well as on a custom rubber stamp (not pictured here), which was made special for Hannah to have and stamp on her stationery at her leisure. I’m grateful for the creativity and fun that flowed (like magic) throughout the duration of this project.
There are three cards included in this suite: invitation card and envelope, RSVP card and envelope, as well as folded thank you card and envelope. There is also a digital save the date, which I designed and coded, and for which I provided instructions to the client (for emailing out in advance). All designs are pictured in the slideshow above.
