Right now, I am obsessed with Revel! (It’s all about modern celebration). I don’t know how i have missed it until recently, but it is so organized, easy to look at, chock full of inspiration boards and best of all if you see something you love, you can click to buy right from the site! I hope you enjoy browsing as much as i do!
So if you know me, you know that I love details! Whether entertaining at home, helping with wedding or event planning or just simply sipping a cocktail on a summer evening at home with my family.
There is something about a paper straw that just adds that touch of something special! You must admit how darling they are! Look how the pop of blue coordinates with our Boho Bouquet collection. So sweet!
We are excited to share that you can now purchase packages of straws at our store and they will also be online shortly for purchase! Feel free to call and place an order over the phone and we will get your little bit of fun shipped right out to you!
It is really amazing how far back the chevron pattern dates, so goes to prove how very classic it is! While pops of bright color, or sharp black can give an utter modern twist, so can shades of pink and gold make this a real pretty choice for the more traditional bride. Look at how lovely this pattern can look with a switch of fonts and colors and of course, the dreamy cake, shoes and dress!
This is what Tiffany described to me as her theme adding in gold, black, red and drama! (And lots of it). I loved Tiffany’s energy from the minute she walked into my studio and I knew I had met probably one of the most energetic brides ever! Add in her mom’s energy and it was a double dose of pure fun with paper. We talked about all the fun details to incorporate and sketched some thoughts that day. Then, they left and i put my creative cap on and went to work!
You might remember the tidbits from my sketchbook? The design came together just I had envisioned and it is one of my favorites!
It all started with a custom, letterpressed pocket fold to hold all of the pieces of her invitation suite.
Tiffany’s wedding is going to be nothing short of amazing! I can’t wait to see photos.
On another note, thanks to all for filling out the survey from this week. I would still love about 30-40 more responses so I have enough information to make the best line of invitations. So, please feel free to pass the link along to anyone who might be able to submit information! It is much appreciated.
This will one of the last posts before I go on a hiatus while focusing on the new site and the ready-to-order line. What a way to end posting for now!
One of my favorite parts of being a designer is the concept phase. Well, the concept phase and then seeing the creations coming to life in the end!
If you have followed along with the tidbits from my sketchbook, you might remember this one. A fun couple with a wedding ceremony and small, intimate reception in California, and then a month later, a large reception here in Saratoga, NY.
The design at hand, was to create a save the date that would translate between both places, while making each location unique. We played off of each state flower (the poppy for California and the rose for New York) and incorporated postage pieces for each state.
We have started the concepts for the sets of invitations now and I love all the details that are coming together! Combined with their planner Katie from Katie O’ Weddings and Events, these events are sure to knock your socks off!
RPI puts on some fantastic events, and i’m so lucky to design for the event groups there. Some past designs include a double sided letterpress invitation, a fun with numbers invitation to honor a past member of the Board of Directors and of course the fabulous die cut program for that event at the holiday season this past December.
This most recent project was for an elegant, oversized invitation for a party in NYC at The Plaza to honor the philanthropists to RPI. Heavy ivory stock combined with raised gold and black ink give the feeling of simplistic elegance.
Happy Monday my friends and happy first full day of spring. Although, looking out the windows today, i’m not so sure spring has sprung! With the snow falling and what little green we have on the ground being covered up again i feel as if we are reverting back to winter!
I have a new invitation design to share today. This was designed for RPI. I have done some really fun projects for them in the past and this was no exception. I designed this invitation to resemble a collegiate folder. The paper even has a traditional folder texture to it and Silk screened in a beautiful silvery/white color. The front cover has a die-cut to expose the title of the luncheon.
