There are some who like to make it is as big as possible and there are others that keep it simple. I would like to think that our style falls right in-between. I wanted to give her everything but keep it simple with an at-home party…
Being in the invitation business makes it hard to keep things simple. I wanted the invitation to feel childlike with the sophistication deserving of a religious honor. I also wanted to remind people that it does take a village to raise a child. My daughter loves church, but heading to religion after a long day of school and the common core was hard for her. As I watched her learn her prayers and remember her gestures, it came to me that this child has so much going on in her little world besides what I saw. I wanted to show that in the invitation.
So I designed an invitation that would reflect her busy world and highlight the honor of her receiving communion.
This invitation has blue letterpress art and typography with a pink foil for the cross and the name. She choose the colors and I think they were perfect.
I wrote the opening words to reflect what she was going through: “With all the activities in a child’s life, only a few stand to be celebrated.”
The invitation also included a celebration card with the reception and RSVP information and a direction card. A ribbon was wrapped around the invite as well.
The photo above also includes the thank you!
Creating a unique custom invitation can be the best part of the celebration.
