We created these surprise birthday party invitations for my mom, Caroline’s 70th birthday. Growing up, Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline,” has always been her anthem of sorts. Naturally, we had to go with a Neil Diamond theme for the invitations.
The design was modern and fun. We used both bold and feminine fonts which paired well with the bright color palette and the soft pinks. The invitation itself was printed double sided with 1947, the year of her birth on the back. The secondary cards included a reply card and an additional details card. Everything was held together with twine and a tag with the image of Neil belting out “Sweet Caroline.” Beautiful marbled paper that lined both the mailing envelope and the response envelope, along with color coordinated vintage postage completed this suite.
We got to do some fun accessories for the event itself. Cute drink stirrers with an image of my mom from her younger days, colorful cocktail napkins and bar menus.
