Bespoke Design: 80'S PARTY INVITATIONS

Happy Monday everybody! Did you have a great weekend? Here in NYC, the weather suddenly became fall, and I absolutely love it - cool days and chilly nights are my favorite.

Ever since leaving my old blog, I've struggled with the fear or repeating content here on the new blog. However, I 've come to realize that a lot of you may be new to me and Sincerely, Jackie, and may have never even visited the old blog, in which case, you've missed some awesome design recaps. So instead of fearing repetitive content, I've decided to embrace it, by re-sharing some of my most favorite custom design projects from the past.

Today I am sharing one of my all-time favorite designs - seriously, it puts a smile on my face every time I see it. I created this fun 80's themed birthday party invitation for professional photographer Danielle, last October, and it had a dual purpose: get people to the party and make them believe it's a 30th birthday party; and two SUPRISE THEM WITH A WEDDING!

OK, so it wasn't a full wedding surprise, but it was pretty darn close. Danielle and her husband, Will, had gotten married the year before and they had some major wedding regrets. So they decided to celebrate their one year anniversary by renewing their vows and having another wedding - 80's style. Seriously, how awesome is that?!

These invitations were such a blast to create - it's not every day where I get a client saying they want their invitations to look like the 80's threw up on them, but in a good way, of course. I went all out, and I just love the way these invitations turned out.

You're smiling right now, aren't you? Yes, yes you are. Because there are just that cool. Want to see something else pretty darn cool? Check out this video that Danielle put together to recap their anniversary-birthday party.

This invitations makes me want to ask the question: if you were to renew your vows, and have an absolutely one-of-a-kid, off-the-wall party, what theme would you go for?? I think Mike and I would probably have a full-blown street fair themed party; featuring little stands with zeppoles, sausage and peppers, and empanadas - and all the fun fair games you can imagine. Think: dunk station, skeeball, corn hole....

So what would you do? I'd love to hear!
