Pineapple Party Invitation

by Kitiya Palaskas

I love the idea of giving my guests something a little different at my next summer party. This 3D pineapple invitation can be filled with trinkets and goodies to get friends and family excited about what’s to come. Mail these festive treasures out beforehand to get everyone pumped for the big day, or use them as treat boxes to surprise your pals when the fun is over.

Watercolor Wedding Invitations

Last year at this time I was busy working on these watercolor wedding invitations for Nancy and Elias’ destination wedding. (It was featured on Martha Stewart here.) These are the most labor intensive invitations I’ve ever made (see some outtakes) but are also my favorite thing I’ve designed. I have to give credit to my talented studio manager Alexis Birkmeyer who printed and painted and duplexed each one by hand (she is the most detail oriented person I know-perfect for letterpress.) The invitations were two sided: English on one and Greek on the other. and several parts were duplexed together which means you take two sheets of paper and glue them. It was all wrapped up together with pretty silver string. Nole from Oh So Beautiful Paper featured them today with all the details. Go here to read more.

ps: Here are some watercolor business cards and my watercolor Christmas card.
