Relief Society Birthday Invitations

March 8, 2009

Lots of pretty pink envelopes were handed out today in church. Because pink is synonymous with Relief Society. Or is that just crazy talk in my head?

Here are my small-budget invitations for our upcoming RS birthday party. In an attempt to fancy up my painfully simple invitations, I scored these envelopes at Borders where they were ringing up at the register at $1.00 per pack of 8 (obviously some type of mistake and obviously something I took advantage of) and designed mock mailing labels to go on the envelope face.

I wish I can share what we’re doing exactly for the party, but I don’t want to ruin the surprise for the few ladies in my ward that occasionally visit my blog. But the theme is decidedly very “birthday.” Meaning games, cakes, balloons, decorations… I love parties.

    Love the invitations. I wish you were in our ward. Then we would get awesome invitations. You take flyers to a whole new level. You are such a great graphic designer.

    Very cute…very Relief Society-ish-! Nice work, as always. Looking forward to hearing what the evening had in store for everyone. P.S. What is “hand-lettering?”

    You should know. You’re one of my most favorite blogs to look at. The invitations are pure happiness.

    I’m glad you love your calling because I am one of the beneficiaries of your beautiful invitations. They always make me so excited about the event. THANK YOU for your efforts.

    Thank you, thank you. : )

    Michelle, I used my own hand-writing as the font for “Relief Society” and “you”

    What a great calling to have. Your invitations are so fun, and I’m SO incredibly jealous about your envelope find at borders. Your handwriting is gorgeous, it’s a big surprise this is the first time you’ve used your handwriting in your design!

    Love the invitations and your cursive is yummy. It would make a great font.

    Why do our invites always look so stodgy and stuffy? I love these. I hope you are playing pin the tale on the donkey.

    i read your blog occasionally and i love it! I have to tell you how talented i think you are and what a treat to share your talent with your relief society. i’m sure it’s a lot more work than they will ever know.

    Kera, thank you so much for your kind words! You’ve made my day. : )

    Brittany, I’m on the committee. I love it. Besides, I’m never able to attend Relief Society (chasing Dax around the halls until he’s old enough for nursery) so being on the committee is my only connection to all the RS happenings.

    Any chance that now this event is over you would share the details with me?? :)

    I just got called as the new counselor and I have a month to plan the RS Birthday party.

    Stressing out!

    Just found your blog and am LOVING all your ideas!

    birthday invitations should be given as early as possible to avoid any surprises `”-
