40th Birthday...Around the World

What do you do when all of your friends are turning 40 in the same year? Have a huge blow out birthday party, of course!

Kaitlin's fellow birthday celebrants all live in different cities from New York City to New Jersey to Houston and Austin. To incorporate this "Around the World" theme, I created a 4-panel invitation, folded to show a photo of New York as the cover stating "We are traveling near and far...". As you open the accordian-folded invitation, the first panel is a photo of New Jersey and then Houston. Finally, the last panel shows that the banner is being held up by a plane, which is about to land in Austin, Texas. This panel incorporates the invitation details, including the venue, Top of the Oasis in Austin. A separate itinerary card was also included for those invited to the cocktail cruise beforehand.

To finish the set, I lined the envelopes in navy and tied pretty raffia around the accordian-folded invitation and itinerary card. This birthday party is going to be a blast!
