Invitation Design

About my most favourite thing in the world is designing party invites! There are many dull and boring invitations available in the shops, I like to create something a little different, quirky and original invitations that the recipients will want to put on show (therefore remembering the event!)

My son wanted a Lego Star Wars party for his 6th birthday (because he is a bit of a geek) he himself browsed through hundreds of different designs on google images and thus also decided he wanted it to be a party pass…

These were the invitations for my own wedding which had a bit of a fifties theme… polka dots, gingham, checkered dance floor, big swirly circle skirts and lots and lots of bunting! As we were also having a surprise ice cream van I gave a hint of this in the invites by designing them in the style of a fifties ice cream parlour menu and including a bag of ice cream sweeties and sending them off in candy striped sweet bags (…and using stamps with a photo of the husband and I… I may have gone a little ott with them, especially since they ended up costing more than my dress!)
