Candy Land Mitzvah Suite


When we set out to work on this Mitzvah invitation for a D.C. family, we had no clue it would turn into such a big project.

The celebration was planned with a Candy Land theme, so bright colors were a must and we ended up layering a lot of different colors + textures to bring the concept to life.

The invitation set included a custom pocket folder, a tiered invite, several inserts (party / stay / rsvp / join), and coordinating envelopes (outer + reply) with liners.

Each pocket also had a three color letterpress seal that continued the candy theme and color motif.

The Inspiration …


Candy hearts are synonymous with love and Valentine’s Day – the same day as the Bat Mitzvah + Party – so naturally we wanted to tie them into the design.


We incorporated the color of the candy in the paper stock (Colorplan Turquoise, Fuchsia, and Purple) and ink colors. The envelope also mirrors the candy heart theme with a custom liner we designed.

The pocket was gusseted to fit the four insert pieces. Look at the closeup photo (below) to see how thick the 4 layers of 220# Lettra were.

Mixing and matching all of these shades can be tough, we didn’t want to end up with a rainbow of colors that didn’t match. So, we picked the foil colors and then mixed the ink and edge colors to get it spot on.
