Make Your Birthday Party More Than Just Another Party

Throughout our lives, we have many occasions to celebrate, from births to religious coming-of-age moments, to weddings, to retirements. These are all wonderful life cycle events, spent with family and friends. But we sometimes overlook the importance of celebrating our birthdays, especially milestone birthdays. Life is meant to be enjoyed and celebrated; what better way is there to celebrate life than to recognize a special birthday with a party? And what better way is there to create a fun event than with a fun and unique birthday party invitation?

What Does Your Important Day Look Like?

When designing the birthday party invitation, it’s important to understand what the guest of honor wants. The invitation should reflect both the guest of honor’s personality and style. It’s important to understand if the party is going to be simple or elaborate, traditional or contemporary, at a local venue or at a destination location, a large party or an intimate affair. I consider all of these elements when I design the invitation. The birthday party invitation not only reflects the honoree, but should reflect the tone and theme of the celebration as well.

We Will Make the Invitation Come Alive

When thinking about the design elements of the invitation itself, there are countless possibilities that can reflect the client’s personal sense of style and taste. Metallic and shimmer papers add elegance. Letter press invitations reflect a vintage style. Lots of color can reflect a sense of excitement and fun. Layering different papers can show that the client has different sides to his or her personality. The possibilities are endless!

The Beauty Is In The Details

Perhaps the most important way to make a statement on an invitation is through font selection. A font can say “whimsical,” “feminine,” “masculine,” “refined,” “contemporary,” or any one of many other descriptions. Careful and thoughtful placement of fonts is essential to setting the mood of the invitation. I have hundreds upon hundreds of fonts to choose from, and each portrays a different feeling and state of mind.

Your Special Day Begins With The Invitation

Your birthday party begins as soon as your guests open their invitations. It sets the mood, creates expectation and builds excitement for your special day. Start planning your special day now. Email me at marlene (at) and let’s get started!
