Setting the tone in your invitation is a great way of letting people know what to expect at your event, as well as telling them all the usual details such as time, place and the dress code. If you are planning a fun event make sure your invitations represent that. Start with something simple and go from there.
These are the first draft ideas for Claire's 30th Birthday invitations. It's going to be a fun day with just her girl friends, a bit of a throwback to more childish parties when they were younger. We've started off with a rosette (in pink of course) which we have built up into a sophisticated version of a childs birthday badge.
