Well you know how I love it when a client gives me an idea and lets me run with it. So, this Bachelorette Invitation project was a blast to create. The scene: South Miami Beach. The theme: Leopard and Lace. Think a weekend of fun in the sun, a day on a Yacht, dining, clubbing, lingerie party and spa treatments. Yeah. I know. Here’s the pics.
It all starts with the box. I used a kraft covered self sealing box . I stamped a lace pattern on it and hand lettered on top in black ink using my Belluccia calligraphy style. ( Belluccia font available at myfonts.com)
Upon opening the box, this “lace” bikini sets the tone with a ring and a note “It’s time to celebrate the ring!”.
After untying the ribbon, you’ll find the invitation bringing both “Leopard and Lace” together. ( Leopard ribbon and fabric lace wrapped around a black satin like fabric. Invitation, Agenda and Map are all printed on white shimmer paper using my Belluccia font, flourishes and ornaments.)
Upon turning the invitation over, you’ll find a Weekend Agenda tucked into a band created from ribbon.
The Agenda is removed from the band and turned over to reveal…
A Map of South Miami Beach highlighting some of the spots they’ll be visiting.
Next, to prepare the guests for the weekend extravaganza, the first party favor is unveiled. A custom personalized “Leopard and Lace” bag to hold their wet bathing suit. These were beautifully constructed by Mary of, A Thread of Grace. Check out her other cool products!
Adding to the list of party favors are: A custom luggage tag ( made by me) a delicious corsette cookie created by Mary of It’s a Mary Cake , a pair of leopard sunglasses , lip balm with a leopard cover and a keepsake Christmas ornament shaped like leopard sunglasses !
Now if that doesn’t get the party started, I don’t know what will!
