A debut marks an important milestone for Filipino families. When a girl turns 18, she’s ready to enter the real world as a woman, graduating from high school and on her way to pursuing higher education at a college or university, if she hasn’t already started working. It is a moment to celebrate, whether lavishly with a cotillion ball in a banquet hall, or low-key with a backyard pirate-themed party complete with moon bounce and treasure chest centerpieces filled with candy (that’s what I did).

I had the pleasure of designing a beautiful custom invitation for Kirsten’s debut, featuring a classic vintage style with soft pink colors, and floral flourishes.

My 18th birthday was long before the days of pinterest and extreme party planning, so I didn’t get a chance to be crafty and design invitations or the party packs we have nowadays. That’s why I love being part of Pretty In Prints! I get to design and create and help someone else’s vision becomes a reality every day.
