FEATURED EVENT: Ethan's 1st Birthday

Wow, I haven't blogged in so long! I apologize for not keeping up with it and promise to update more in the future! Now that I'm back, I wanted the first post to be our first feature! :)
I was contacted by Lindsey in October to design birthday invitations for her son, Ethan's, 1st Birthday! She had selected a pirate theme and the party was going to be held at Pump It Up! I found these individual cartoon pirate characters and accessories and created little "scenes" to use on the inside and outside of the invitation. Lindsey sent me the wording that she wanted and we paired it with a font that tied it all together! We also aged the ivory paper to give it a treasure map look. The invitations were enclosed in black envelopes that feature aged ivory address labels that featured the same font.
-Lindsey, I had so much fun designing these invitations and I am so glad that Ethan had an amazing 1st birthday! Thank you as always for all of your continued support of Matinae Design Studio! I really appreciate it! :) Thanks for allowing me to "steal" your pictures so that I could feature them!


Here are pictures from the party! Ethan is so cute and look at the adorable cakes Lindsey had at the party - a pirate and a treasure map/pirate hook cake!!!

Lauren | Feminine Kitchen Themed Shower

For Lauren's bridal shower design, we were asked to incorporate kitchen accessories and pink and white damask!  Loved the girly touch to these designs!  We also designed coordinating recipe cards for the guests to fill out and bring with them as well as favor tags! The design was printed on white metallic paper (as well as the other accessories) layered on black metallic cardstock, and enclosed in a coordinating metallic envelope!

A&E Photobooth | Gift Certificate Design

I had the honor of designing for Eva and Anthony last year and they have since turned into fellow wedding vendors as well by starting their own photo booth company called A&E Photobooth!  They contacted me to design a gift certificate for one of the bridal shows along with a 3 piece candy buffet for the guests visiting their booth in their company colors of black and red. We wish both of them tons of success in this new business venture and highly recommend them if you are planning an event!

Brea + Byron | "Mustache Bash" Couple's Shower

Here is part 2 of Brea and Byron's baby shower designs!  For their couple's shower, they wanted "Mustache Bash" themed invitations incorporating a mustache and bow tie!  We were dying to design using this theme so we were thrilled when they contact us!  A chalkboard texture and chevron stripes were added into the design along with a black and white newspaper print pattern that is actually the same fabric that will be in Baby Young's nursery!  Brea's a teacher and wanted books for her little one so a book insert was also included in this design.  Love this idea!
