Love is all around! {Valentine's Day 2011}

In honor of Valentine's Day, I wanted to blog three "love" themed projects that we have been working on!

We were contacted by Josh 4 months ago to work on a very special project with him! He was preparing to propose to his girlfriend, Christina and was trying to plan something special for the proposal. He had purchased a box of wine infused chocolates from their favorite winery and wanted us to "dress it up" and create an insert with a note that he had written for her. He was then going to have one of the chocolates featured in the box with her ring sitting on top so that as she opened the box, the proposal would unfold. The box was a beautiful grape color and to keep with the natural vineyard theme that Josh gave us, we added a citron green linen paper belly band to the box that featured dried grape vines, beaded grapes, raw silk ribbon, velvet leaves, and a tag. The proposal was to take place on her birthday so to throw her off, the tag read
"Best birthday wishes to Christina!
With Love, Josh"
When Christina opened the box, she found the note from Josh that featured the words "Marry Me" at the bottom. A single chocolate truffle with her ring were below the note.

Here are the pictures that I took of the box (with my engagement ring) before handing it over to Josh. And in case any of you were wondering...Christina said "YES!".

We also were contacted by two wives that wanted something more "edgy" for their husbands. The first one needed something that was poker themed as she wanted the inside to say "You are the King of my heart! Thanks for giving me a full house!" which we thought was totally adorable. She will be giving this to her husband on Monday along with her boudoir album...he is one lucky guy! The other wanted a card that incorporated edgy metal elements. We used silver metal sheets, mesh, metal die cut letters, and distressed paint to create this card.

Next weekend I'll be posting pictures of a candy buffet that we coordinated that is going to be set up for a "mommy and me" club's Valentine's Day party!
We hope everyone has a fabulous Valentine's Day! XOXO

Monday Matinae | "Beauty and the Beast" Styling with Jessica Frey

This winter, we got the opportunity to design for a unique shoot that Jessica of Jessica Frey Photography was putting together!  I can't tell you how excited we were to design for this and finally get the chance to work with her!  Jessica has done several fairy tale inspired shoots that are aimed to help brides find modern fairy tale inspiration. Such a cool concept!
For this styling, we had the opportunity to design an invitation suite, placecards, a cake topper, menu, and bunting.  For the invitation we created a navy metallic gatefold that featured an ornate metallic yellow frame that are laser cut and placed to "frame" the panel.  The panel was printed on pearl metallic paper and featured modern silhouettes.  A thick satin ribbon adorned with a gold brooch tied around the outside of the invitation.  The invitation was then placed in a navy metallic invitation box along with a coordinating response card and inner envelope.
Placecards were designed as tent cards using…

A&E Photobooth | Gift Certificate Design

I had the honor of designing for Eva and Anthony last year and they have since turned into fellow wedding vendors as well by starting their own photo booth company called A&E Photobooth!  They contacted me to design a gift certificate for one of the bridal shows along with a 3 piece candy buffet for the guests visiting their booth in their company colors of black and red. We wish both of them tons of success in this new business venture and highly recommend them if you are planning an event!
