Cailin’s First Birthday Invitation

When Carrie asked me to design Birthday invitations for Cailin’s first birthday, I was super excited….and knew it had to be extra special!

When we first discussed themes, I thought what better for a summer birthday than a Luau theme!

In creating the look I was inspired by my trip to Maui – the gorgeous flowers that were everywhere as well as the whole surf vibe I observed on the beaches. I knew her invitation had to be a blend of fresh modern tropical meets sophistication for this beautiful baby girl.

I took full advantage of the bright fresh color scheme and then also added a bold graphic font to pull in the beach feel. It’s so fun & fresh. It was printed on pure white semi gloss cardstock with a glossy coating on the photo side. I think the end result is absolutely delightful! (– and did I mention the quick turnaround? This was designed, sent to the press, and arrived on Carrie’s front door in 4 days total!)

Does this luau sound like blast? The side of the invitation devoted to a photo of the little hula girl will remain on my refrigerator long after the party has ended! Isn’t she a doll?

Thank you so much Carrie for the opportunity and incredible inspiration – and Happy Birthday to Cailin!
