Hand Drawn DIY Party Invitations

Hand Drawn DIY Party Invitations

We love having parties at our home. It can be a small dinner, birthday celebration that involves fried chicken and biscuit taste-off, or a casual movie night. Email or Evite is the route that we usually choose to invite our friends, but this might change. The simple and gorgeous invitations by Bryn are motivating us to do something special next time. She made them herself for her own birthday party using a white paper napkin folded like a card. She sketched the restaurant and the date on the front and all the details were on the inside. These turned out to be a hit amongst her friends.

We came across her DIY invitations on the 100 Layer Cake blog. The black and white drawing with the red balloons looks great. Making a large quantity might be more time consuming than an Evite invitation, but what a creative idea. The drawing could be much simpler and still have a similar effect. It will definitely make your next event that much more special.

Bryn is a calligrapher, so we can see why her invites look so great. You can check out more of her work on her site.
