This summer has been full of events for PaperCuts, shockingly not all birthday parties. Not that I don’t love a good birthday design but it’s nice to flex our range. A good friend and client contacted me about her baby boy’s baptism a while back. She had a great idea of making an important part of her baby’s blessing into favors for the guest AND knocking out some sitting issues also. Her only issue was how to implement it.
I loved the idea and quickly ran with the idea. Since part of the Greek Orthodox blessing involved oil, she wanted to give each attending family their own bottle of oil to take home. To take it further since Greeks do it big (we have all seen the movie) she had a ton of family coming and needed to put together a seating arrangement for the banquet afterwards.
Our plan was to take the design used on the baptism invitation and design labels for the oil favors that also doubled as the seating cards. It came together so much better than we could have imagined. We even managed to include Jordan Almonds in the favor as they are a staple in Greek events.
