I am so excited to share this invitation we created for our darling retailer in Tennessee, Social Graces.

I have always loved the simple elegance of the Mindy collection. This version we created for our fabulous retailer The Dandelion Patch is no exception. The couple chose letterpress as their print method and we used a lawn and midnight blue color palette. The results were quite lovely. Take a look!

I love how the fine lines of the orchids look letterpressed! Thanks Dandelion Patch!

Custom Invitations Revealed

Remember that fabulously gorgeous wedding yesterday? Shot by Erin Hearts Court? Well here a few pictures I took of some of the paper goodies we created for the stylish couple.

The save the dates included one of their gorgeous engagement photos. The overall concept was inspired by a piece of fabric the bride brought to me. This fabric was used throughout the wedding, so it was the perfect way to tie everything together.

The invitations arrived in a custom printed envelope with matching stamps! The invitation itself sat inside a ribbon adorned cobalt blue pocket. I really adored working on this project and it was so fun to see the wedding come to life. Did you guys see the cake? It matches so perfectly!! Hope you enjoy!

I am so excited to share this wedding with you today. We had the pleasure of working with Jacqui and Amir on their fabulous paper items and I always get so excited to see how the wedding turns out. They had fabulous Erin Hearts Court photograph the event, and the pictures do not disappoint!

I love all the personal touches like the grooms superhero cufflinks, and argyle socks.

I love the bridesmaid dresses! And the cake completely matches the invitations, wait until you see!!

The florals were stunning, as was the bride. Can you even handle that dress!? Sigh.

I love how the candy bar turned out. You can see the escort cards we did above. But wait until you see the invitations we did…revealed tomorrow! Stay tuned! Thanks Courtney for letting me share your gorgeous photos! You can also see more of this wedding on Style Me Pretty.

DIY Project {sparkle ornaments}

3comments

I recently needed a last minute ornament for an ornament exchange I attended, so I whipped up one of these at midnight the night before the party! It was so well received I figured I would share with you how to make one yourself. It is so easy, and the results are quite sparkle fabulous!

You will need: 1.a shot glass or  a bottle with a small opening  2.glue (preferrably Gem-Tac)  3.Small rhinestones (preferably swarvoski crystals)  4.toothpicks  5.ornaments that need some extra sparkle  Another tip that really helps you pick up the tiny little stones is if you put a small amount of glue on the end of a toothpick and allow it to dry completely. Then you can use the end with the dried glue to pick up the stones! It works great!

Step 1- Place your ornament on the opening of a shot glass or bottle, hook side down.  Step 2- Take the tiniest amount of glue on the end of a clean toothpick and make small tiny dots all the way around the ornament in alternating lines (this does not need to be exact so not to worry)  Step 3- Take your toothpick with the dried glue and pick up the stones one at a time. Very lightly press one into each dot of glue. Allow to dry and voila!

If you want to take this one step further, adorn each with a fun colored ribbon. Don’t be afraid to play with different colors and shapes of ornaments. Go dig up some old ornaments in your attic and give them a makeover. These make great handmade gifts! Good luck! Send me any pictures if you decide to make some! xoxo

Recently we had the pleasure of working with Paper Dots on this fabulous twist on our Marie Antoinette invitation suite. The couple took a more formal approach and used a midnight and gold color palette. I love that it really gives this invitation collection a whole new look!

The couple really had their hearts set on letterpress so we letterpress the invitation card and then flat printed the additional pieces. Love the gold in this suite!!
