Inspired Parties ~ Kramer Drive Invitations

Bridal Shower Invitation by Kramer Drive

Whether you’re planning a children’s birthday party, a bridal shower or an adult affair, the perfect invitation is a must! It sets the tone for the entire event and either sends the recipient racing to their calendar to mark the date or sighing to the trash to pitch “just another invite”.

Kramer Drive is a great company that both we and our customers can’t get enough of {obvious from all the blog love we give them!}! Their designs are fresh, fun and best of all totally customizable. You can change all ink colors, font styles and can even add glitter on any invite.

They are also well-priced {starting at $48.75 for 15} and have a quick turnaround rate {around 8 business days}. Kramer Drive doesn’t just do invitations, they also do gift tags, thank you notes and all sorts of custom accessories. Take a peek at a few invites we are loving this spring…

Cocktail party invitations by Kramer Drive

Cocktails? Yes, please! This cocktail party invite works for any occasion ~ keep the background in a pewter gray for a more formal couple’s event or make it bright fuchsia for a girl’s night out.

Flower invite by Kramer Drive

This birthday party invite is pretty for girls of all ages. We often see it dressed up a bit with glitter in the center of a few of the flowers.

Diamond birthday invitation by Kramer Drive

Picking out an invitation for a man’s birthday party can be tricky. You don’t want the invitation to be too “girly” {with the design or fonts} but you still want it to feel fun and not corporate. This invite accomplishes all those things in a modern style.

Inspired Parties ~ Theme Parties

Salutations Smock Letterpress Shower Invitation

Welcome to another Inspired Parties post! This week we are exploring theme parties and more specifically, creating a theme for an invitation and carrying that theme throughout the party. While an invitation can set the tone for an event, we love that it can also introduce a theme, which is what we are exploring today.

For example, how adorable is the umbrella on the letterpress Smock invitation {above}? Well imagine a party inspired by it…

Salutations Inspired Parties Jamie Hammond Photography

Adorable, right? Every party should have a wow factor, something that guests remember and talk about long after the party’s end. We think these adorable umbrella centerpieces {above} add just the right amount of wow to the beautiful tables photographed by Jamie Hammond Photography.

Salutations Vera Wang Party Invitation

And because themes don’t always have to be literal, we love the idea of using a style as the theme. We suggest using a style that is specific, but woven throughout the party effortlessly.

For example, how chic is this contemporary thermography invitation by Vera Wang {above}? Now, imagine a party loosely inspired by its style. We envision contemporary and unexpected details like this…

Salutations Modern Wedding Cake

Stunning, right? This incredible cake {above} by Nine Cakes blows us away. It is contemporary and playful {the blue looks as if it’s dancing down the cake}, with a hint of tradition {those tiers!}, not unlike the style of the invitation.

Remember, themes do not have to be literal. Sprinkling an event with components in the same style is just as powerful as literal repetition.
