today our princess is from a far off land. the request was for aladdin-inspired with a fun punch of color based on decorations they were planning to use. aladdin, but not too disney. i love using unusual color combinations, so this was really fun for me.
first up, the invitation. key ingredients in addition to fun color are pattern, cool shapes, jewels, and of course, a magic lamp and genie wishes.
a matching return address label is easy and eye catching. this is the first opportunity you have to set the scene, and little details like this are so fun - even before the envelope is opened!
similarly, if you're giving a party favor, a coordinating bag tag (or sticker) is another detail that really adds to the overall party design. and here's proof that party favors don't have to be over the top. how perfect and theme specific is this little bag of candy treasure?!
and finally, you can finish it all up with a matching note to say thanks when all is said and done. this one is a personalized fold over note, but like i mentioned yesterday, a fill in the blank version would be easy to create with the various design elements.
speaking of design elements, here is a look at several variations that i came up with along the way with the different pieces and parts. i can easily go crazy with options! some customers like picking and choosing, while others only want one or two fairly perfected choices. i like it both ways. clearly i was having fun with the details on this design. any one of them would be a great invitation, depending on how much color you want or what you want the focus to be. in fact, colors can be swapped around or changed completely to match your vision, too.
your wish is my command!
