Invitations for a 50th Birthday Celebration, "Diamonds are Forever"

I had the opportunity to work with a great couple from NYC last year, who were seeking unique invitations for a 50th birthday celebration. The theme for the event was "Diamonds are Forever" as in the 1971 James Bond film, starring Sean Connery, which has a scene that was filmed at the Elrod House in our beautiful city of Palm Springs. In fact, David and all his guests traveled out to Palm Springs, and celebrated at the Elrod House!

The invitation had to have a clean and modern feel to resemble the setting. They opted to stay with a color palette of black and silver for elegance, and we subliminally incorporated the diamond theme by repeating the use of a traditional geometric diamond shape, different layers of shimmer stocks and rhinestone embelishments.

To the left is a sample of the matching place cards/menus I created for the reception. The design carried out the same design elements as the invitations, including the Swarovski crystal rhinestones, to ensure an evening of style, fun, diamond-like sparkle and glamour!
