sports themed table number for bar mitzvah

Do you design reception items too? This is a question clients often ask. I usually tell people that if it’s made with paper then I make it! Over the years I’ve made countless placecards as well as seating charts, programs and table numbers.

Here's just one example.  We customized the Team Jersey invitation with orange and grey for Eli’s basketball themed Bar Mitzvah earlier this year. Then we moved onto the reception and made these stunning table numbers to co-ordinate with them!

sports bar mitzvah invitation - hockey, football, basketball

We’re often asked to create sports inspired Bar Mitzvah invitations. Our most popular has been the Jersey invite, a hockey inspired pocketfolder made to reflect our client’s favourite colours or sports teams. However, some of our clients didn’t need a place for extra inserts, or just wanted a fun party invite, so for them we designed the Team Jersey invitation.

Being Canadian, of course we thought this would be a great hockey themed Bar Mitzvah invite, but with bold stripes, a modern layout and a sporty monogram, this would be a great Bar Mitzvah invitation for any sports loving Bar Mitzvah celebrant or for a football, basketball or baseball theme!

Have you ever stood outside your closet wondering just what to wear to a wedding or other event? 
A dress code is something you may want to consider adding to your invitation wording. It gives your guests a hint as to what they should wear. Many will appreciate that you are saving them the embarrassment of turning up too casually dressed for a formal occasion or too formally for a more casual one.
But how do you put your dress code into words? Here are some handy resources. The first, from etiquette authority Emily Post is the Attire Guide: Dress Codes from Casual to White Tie. The other is Both guides contain great descriptions that decode the dress code, so you can find the one that works best for you!

Have you been to the MDC Designs website recently?  We've redesigned the website and added some great new features to help you find the right invitation.

One favorite is the new Eco-friendly wedding invitation collection.  We wanted to make it easier for brides planning a green wedding to find our most environmentally friendly choices.  These are still unique & stylish handmade wedding invitations, but every invitation in this collection is made of tree free or recycled papers.  It can be easy being green!

If you love any invitation from our signature wedding line or bar and bat mitzvah invitation line, please keep in mind that we would be happy to switch out any papers to make it more eco-friendly.  The majority of our invitations do already contain recycled and tree tree free papers, but we will be creating even greener versions of our most popular designs for our new collection.
