{Event} Beautiful Bridge Birthday

Good morning and happy Monday to you!

We wanted to start off the week by sharing this fresh and floral birthday with you.
We had the chance to design an invitation and party details for a 90th birthday...
what a special occasion!

The birthday girl (Irene) loves playing bridge, so her daughter held a lovely luncheon where all of Irene's friends could gather to celebrate this momentous occasion,
and play some cards while doing it!

The luncheon was held in the spring, and
we wanted the invitation to reflect the fresh elegance of that time of year. 

Yellow and gray has been an increasingly popular color combination this year, so we used a gray card stock, a floral paper layer, and a white card stock to give the invitations a fresh feel.

We used florals to give the impression of a special occasion, along with a vintage playing card for that (still elegant) element of fun. The playing card and yellow satin ribbon sash served as the enclosure.

We lined the coordinating gray envelopes with a yellow polka dot paper for that pop of whimsy.

The result was a lovely invitation that evokes the special occasion while still being fresh and fun.

Irene's daughter, Teri Benaron, also asked us to design a few coordinating party details.
We designed individual place cards for each lady attending the luncheon.

Using a glitter gold card stock to really give them that special touch, we then added layers of chartreuse card stock and a floral-ly damask patterned paper.
These say, "glamour in the garden" to me!

The tags were then tied to each lady's napkin with a coordinating chartreuse ribbon. Gorgeous!

What elegant birthday party would be complete without favors?
We wrapped each favor with a combination of tissue paper, tulle, ribbon,
and a sprig of coordinating hydrangea.

Here's a quick photo from the actual event (please excuse the blurriness).
Look how gorgeous the favors and place card tags look with the garden leaf overlay!

It was such an honor being part of Irene's special birthday!

This concept of a garden luncheon would be beautiful for a bridal shower or even a baby shower.
When there's attention in the details, each celebration feels special and personalized.
