Trend 2 – Gleaming Bat Mitzvah Invitations

Bat Mitzvahs are featuring a lot of feminine, shimmery colors and papers. The paisley invitation seen here is a particularly popular this season.

Despite her devotion to staying chic, Carryn noted it’s the client’s personality that matters most. “We never let [trends] get in the way of incorporating our clients’ personalities into the invitation design,” she explained, “Golden Silhouette works together with her to create something that reflects who she is, while setting the stage for her party.”

Trend 3 – Bold Bar Mitzvah Invitations

Bar Mitzvahs, on the other hand, are seeing more bold, colorful print, like this Royal Blue and Gold Mosaic Tile Bar Mitzvah Invitation.

Trend 4 – Vintage Designs

Vintage-styled “muted shades,” like the gray seen here, are playing a big role in this season’s designs.

Trend 5 – Functional Escort / Place Cards

A great trend this season has been the multi-purpose use of traditional event items, like seating cards also functioning as party favors. Golden Silhouette attached brooches to these escort cards, saving the couple money and time in handing out additional favors throughout the night. Other ideas might include picture frames or glasses with the table number included on it.

Also in the mindset of multi-functioning stationery, these custom wine sleeves displayed the table number on one side and the dinner menu on the other. Not only eco-friendly, this approach is easily tailored to fit the event’s ambiance.
