Oftentimes, we are inspired by the style and personality of our clients who have unique stories and interests. In this case, it was such a special opportunity for us to bring playful and dazzling design to the invitation suite of client Isabel, who brought sparkle and shine to everyone she met. A lover of fashion and makeup, she was always bringing new trends to the table. When it came time for her quinceanera, the details for her big 15th birthday party were no exception. Mixing classic Mexican culture, like the papel picado flags, along with colors inspired by the sunset guests would experience on the rooftop of Public Hotel while celebrating Isabel, we created a design that was absolutely one of a kind.
Right off the bat, we chose a hot pink glitter custom converted envelope that made a bold statement the minute guests laid eyes on it. White hand calligraphy painted the cover and once opened, a mixed print of flowers and the papel picado flag patterns lined the inside of the envelope. In the design, a heart with the letter “I” was framed with horseshoe shapes as a nod to Isabel's favorite animal. Bright mint colored leaves popped in contrast to the mixed pink and orange tones that colored the rest of the envelope.
Guests then pulled out the invitation card, which was encased by a pink shimmer laser cut sleeve decorated with the same papel picado flag patterns. Isabel’s name was the centerpiece of this piece and spanned the entire width with floral shaped intricacies and traditional Mexican flourishes dancing around it. Inside, the clean white invitation was stamped with silver foil event details for a modern touch. From the detailed patterning and sparkling finishes, this invitation suite was fit for a fashionista just like Isabel.
