I was thrilled to hear from Cessy Meacham recently when she contacted me about creating an invitation ensemble for a big bash celebrating the 5-year anniversary of her travel agency, Anytime Travel Solutions. I worked with Cessy several years ago on her first-year anniversary invitations, so I was very aware that this busy lady knew how to celebrate in style! This time around, though, she was doing it even bigger, with multiple events taking place over a weekend, and she wanted to host several of her out-of-town clients at a local bed and breakfast, as well. So we created several invitation iterations which allowed her to invite different guests to the events meant for them. Here’s a snapshot:
Anytime Travel Solution’s colors are orange and gray, and one of their many specialties is travel to Italy and the Mediterranean, so Cessy asked to use the Florence coat of arms on the invitation. We incorporated the design into a bright but sophisticated orange and creamy-white invitation. The main invitation for her out-of-town guests is a long, folding pocket invitation, printed with their logo and a column of the Firenze design on the cream cover. It opens to reveal the orange interior, the invitation, and a pocket containing pertinent information. Additional invitations were created for local guests, inviting them to her ribbon cutting celebration and a special dinner. We chose matching orange envelopes, with return address printed in dark gray on the back flap.
Congratulations to Cessy and the team at Anytime Travel Solutions on 5 years of stellar service! And thank you for asking Dogwood Blossom Stationery to be a part of your celebration!
