visual + sparkle = quinceañera

So I'm starting a new category today, being that I haven't seen very many 'Quinceañera' inspirations around I thought I would start my own for all of those modern and gorgeous soon to be 'señoritas'.

I'd mentioned before that I had been commissioned to design a Quinceañera invitation for the fall, and I'm just getting started with research on papers and other materials, so I thought I would create a few visual + sparkles to get my, and the young ladies, juices flowing. The colors they've chosen are black and purple, yes, very modern and elegant to have black as a main color for a Quinceañera, but the times are surely changing.

This is my favorite inspiration board. Taking the main colors they chose, I immediately started thinking of Old Hollywood Glam-our, so I completed the palette with a cream, mint, and gray as accent colors. You absolutely have to see this visual + sparkles enlarged, so click on each collage to view in its entirety...there's more to see!

Here I added a touch of Sweet Girly-ness with the pink paired as well with an off-white a slate color to keep the feel modern and sophisticated...but young.

And this is a more modern play on the first color palette, turning the saturation up to give it a younger and more playful essence. We'll see which options they choose. I'll for sure keep you posted on the process of this great invitation.
