Ocean inspired 50th Birthday Party invitations

A lavish affair calls for a special invitation! We customized our Walsh design for Jeffrey’s 50th birthday party invitations by changing the orientation and adding a conch shell from our motif library. We also included ocean inspired motifs on the events card, which outlined the various activities being offered to guests during the three day celebration.
