Christian's mom requested something elegant for his First Holy Communion celebration. She had an idea in mind for a color scheme and invitation shape and she was very happy with the design I created for his invitations. I used gold shimmer and ivory shimmer card stock with gold organza ribbon, gold cording, ivory satin ribbon and beautiful gold cross embellishments on the tea length invitations.
With the invitation complete, it was time to transfer that design over to place cards, thank you tags, cupcake toppers and table numbers (stay tuned for the thank you card design). She did a great job on her own with favors for the children and adults. She also ordered beautiful laser cut cupcake wrappers. The event turned out to be everything she hoped it would be for her little boy!

I am in love with shimmery card stock! It gives invitations, place cards, and thank you cards such an elegant look. These baby girl baptism invitations do just that. A pink damask overlay printed on ivory shimmer card stock is backed with a light pink shimmer matte. I am also partial to the shape. Square invitations certainly make a statement. The downfall being that they require extra postage. These cards measured 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 which required a $0.64 stamp. Well worth it if you ask me! This invitation can easily be altered for a bridal shower, anniversary party, dinner party, birthday party, any party where you are looking for simple elegance. The damask overlay is available in black, brown, silver, taupe, and pink. Be on the lookout for matching thank you notes and party banner!

Is this the cutest little Frog Prince that you have ever seen? I love how Makai's mommy took him to a pond to have his birthday invitation picture taken AND that she had him wear a crown! Perfect. This is one handsome little guy so it wasn't hard to make his first birthday invitations super cute. Happy First Birthday Makai! Enjoy your party!
