Bespoke Invitation...circus baby shower
...today we're going to chat a bit about the design process behind this darling little shower invitation.
I adore working with a bride and groom to create something for their wedding...dont get me wrong. Every couple is different and presents a slightly different aesthetic...however, its quite fun to be able to branch out and do something a bit different sometimes.
This lovely invitation was created for a circus themed baby shower. My client (Miss Robin) wanted to incorporate pool blue and shades of blush as well as a slight nod to the typical typography one would find on the vintage show posters.
The one draw back about shower invitations is that there are less pieces... we love more pieces...it gives us the ability of incorporating more elements, especially in the backers. For this project, I knew I wanted to create a pattern using elephants and hearts.
Lets chat about this tent for a moment...you simply cant have a circus themed anything without a tent. I hand drew the tent itself, and layered it with banners.
We kept with the typographical lettering for the insert card, which included the mommy-to-be's registry information as well reply directions for the guests. We backed it with the matching elephant and hearts backer.
...you know how much I just adore envelope liners... how could you not?? We incorporated the same tent as the invitations and repeated the color burst. All the envelopes were then addressed in white calligraphy using our Helena font.
this suite was created through our bespoke process.
