When I was growing up, I completely rebelled against pink, and now that I’m comfortably in “adult” territory, I now adore pink! These invitations are so perfect for this obsession, especially the beautiful pink calligraphy on the black envelopes, and the perfect contrasting washi tape on the invitations. Thank you to Teresa from b.t.elements for sending these to me! More about the invitation in her own words:
Tine actually is a designer at b.t.elements so we really wanted to give a her something special for her shower. It’s a parisian inspired theme. Everything is black and shades of pink.
It’s a pretty common color combo but we really wanted to play up the boldness of the black doing a really striking pattern like the striped liners.
This photo was in Brides Magazine several years back. They featured our pedestal favor boxes (the pink boxes with black and white polka dot ribbon). Even after all these years the concept and colors are still fresh and stunning.
So I really took this idea and formed Tine’s invites around it.
I’ve also been practicing my calligraphy. So I mixed light pink ink for the black envelopes. The contrast makes the writing really stand out.
