check out the exploding box in action!
when brooke and her mother came to us last year with visions of an out-of-the-box invitation suite for her bat mitzvah, we couldn’t wait to get the design process under way. brooke had a love for fashion and loved the idea of incorporating different patterns, fabrics and textiles in the invitation. we loved her non-traditional, bold color palette of black, white, maroon with pops of turquoise. their “exploding box” invitation was layered with brandy melville inspired black and white striped canvas fabric and square maroon cover stock screen printed with black and turquoise ink. custom pockets on both sides held the details for the celebration, as well as the rsvp postcard (complete with personalized brooke postage). the black boxes were wrapped with a vibrant turquoise suede wrap and finished with her B squared monogram (since her initials were B.B.). they arrived to guests in white square boxes with custom address labels which wrapped around the box. when the lids were pulled off of these boxes, the invitations were literally out-of-the-box!
we didn’t stop there! for her amazing party, we designed mints, water bottles, and hand-sanitizers all continuing with the B theme. tables were dressed with custom menus and bold patterned table numbers. as guests entered the hotel, they were greeted with a beautiful display of white marble escort cards hand written in black ink by ashley of hello, bird, with a few B inspirational tiles sprinkled throughout! this family truly knows how to throw a fabulous celebration and we were honored to be a party of it!
