Cabo San Lucas First Birthday

Cabo San Lucas Watercolor Invitations by Pearly Gates DesignsThis custom invitation was created for my nephew Lucas’s very first birthday! The inspiration for the birthday invitations were inspired from Lucas’ namesake- Cabo San Lucas.  We wanted to reflect the fun and laid back feel of the beach town while incorporating some of Lucas’ favorite beach activities. The maracas were the perfect illustration to bring in the Mexican influence as well as one of Lucas’ favorite things to do right now- playing with anything that makes noise!

It also worked as an illustration that Lucas’ mom could tie back to the party through reusing it in her party decor.

All of the illustrations were individually hand painted with watercolors and india inks. The hand lettered text in ocean blue sets the tone for the sunny fiesta celebration to come! The cards were printed on a beautiful cotton card stock to compliment the playful watercolor nuances and bleeds.
