Party Invites- Envelopments

Wheather you celebrate your birthday each year with piƱatas or cocktails, there's a design that can be created just for you! Envelopments has created 15 new mouth watering Featured Recipes that range from a first birthday to a fifty-fifth birthday. We can use these design inspirations to create a unique combination that’s fitting for your next birthday celebration. Let's take a look at My Urban Invites favorites.

View all Recipes here:

"Alyssa Caldwell was turning 10 and she was ready for her first slumber party. “Too old” for a theme, we went with a fresh version of a tiered birthday cake, using fun and funky typography to create the shape. Black and white with a pop of acid green takes this invitation to another level fit for a double-digit celebrant." ~Envelopments


"We were inspired by events where parasols hang whimsically from the ceiling and wanted to recreate this fanciful feeling in the second birthday invitation for Bella Phillips. With a wind-blown effect on the typography, we use a fairy-tale theme for her royal tea party and incorporated a photo of this adorable princess." ~Envelopments

"We love parties that encourage guests to be interactive. For Joseph Levitz’s sixth birthday party, we used an art theme which entails an afternoon of creativity. To get the juices flowing, we used a paint-by-numbers image of an owl and incorporated vibrant drops of paint to keep the invitation bright and festive. You could also use a backing layer of chip board to create the rigidity found in a painter’s palette, or include a set of crayons for the recipients to use." ~Envelopments

"Whether they want to admit it or not, some men suffer through mid-life crises. For some men, it happens in their forties. For Keith Montenegro, it happened when he turned 55. This playful card pokes fun at getting older and defines the symptoms of what we consider “Manopause”." ~Envelopments

"Bright shades of magenta and navy blue combine with fun graphics and fonts in the invitation to Ruby Penardi’s second birthday party. We’ve turned the design on its side (45-degrees) and used a diamond format with the Envelofolds® enclosure. We’ve taken elements from the invitation and printed a custom patterned liner. For her party favors, we turned Wedge Favor Containers into confectionary treats by creating labels that mimic layers in a slice of cake." ~Envelopments

"Of all the decorations used in a birthday party, nothing is more iconic than a balloon. We added string to a playful font and also printed two balloons on the envelope liner in honor of Wesley Bartlett’s second birthday. We designed a custom size folded card to reveal the “2” balloon when the card is closed. Remember to start with a larger size folded card if you want to print a full bleed" ~Envelopments
