Press Release

"Invitation Consultants Designs for BET Awards Celebrity Gifting Retreat"

TAMPA, Fla. - July 8, 2013 - Invitation Consultants designed the VIP-pass style invitation for the BET Awards Celebrity Gift Retreat.

The BET Awards were held at L.A. Live in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 30. The show was hosted by Chris Tucker and featured performances from Nicki Minaj, Robin Thicke and Kendrick Lamar. Presenters included Gabrielle Union, Angela Bassett, and Paula Patton.

Presenters and performers received gift bags containing a variety of fabulous items compiled by Backstage Creations, including stationery from Invitation Consultants. Boris Kodjoe, Nicole Ari Parker and Michelle Williams were among the presenters, nominees and winners that were invited to visit the suite.

"We were heavily influenced by the BET Awards logo and the glamour of the event itself," said Creative Director, Jennifer Reilly Kelmer. "We took that inspiration and designed an exclusive VIP pass and coordinating stationery items that were printed on gorgeous shimmering stock. It was thrilling to be involved."
