Halloween: Alice In Wonderland Style, Part 2

Over a year ago, I got the chance to design birthday invitations and accessories for an adorable set of twins.  During that event, a guest at that party (Melanie) noticed my work and asked or my info so she could get in contact with me about her daughter's 8th birthday.  Soon after, we met and realized she actually lived on my same street!  As we spoke, she told me that her daughter, Maggi, was born on October 27th and  they had always had a Halloween inspired party for her but this year she wanted to put a twist on it.  I had just seen an Alice in Wonderland inspired paper line that had just hit the stores and when I showed the paper to Melanie she fell in love with the idea of using the paper as our inspiration and turning Maggi's party into a Alice in Wonderland tea party with a Halloween twist!
We designed two panel invitations that were held together with ribbon.  The fronts of the panels featured Alice in Wonderland and Halloween elements while the backs featured the in…

Halloween: Alice In Wonderland Style, Part 1

Halloween is almost here!  We love this time of the year at MDS!  So many fun projects to work on that set the tone for the rest of the holidays!  The next three posts will be dedicated to what we've been working on for Halloween this year!
We got another chance to design for one of our very favorite clients, Brittany.  We designed for her wedding that took place in May 2010 and had the chance to design baby shower invitations and announcements that will hit the blog soon!  When she came over to pick up the announcements, I showed her a sneak peak of something we were working on for a Halloween "Alice in Wonderland" style party.  She loved the things I showed her so much, she asked if we could make a hanging decor item with the same theme for her home.  
We quickly went to work ordering in the same paper and came up with the 2.5 foot wide hanging banner that featured different panels that included lots of embellishments and the names of each family member, Brittany, Col…

A Lobster Bake Party!

At the beginning of the summer I was contacted by Denise of Fairy Godmothers who was helping to coordinate a lobster bake party for a client. I was so excited to get a chance to work with Denise and design some lobster themed placecards for the party! We did red tent cards with a matte white placecard that featured a lobster graphic and the name of each guest in a bold red font. Here are pictures of the placecards plus two pictures Denise sent over of them set up at the party! How cute do they look paired with the lobster cookies from Anamie's Sweets!? :)

"Will You Be My..." cards for the guys!

The "Will You Be My..." cards have been so popular this wedding season! They are a great way to ask your friends and family to be a part of your special day and to give them alot of the information they'll need. One of our couples recently came to us and wanted to order cards for her girls but also do cards for the guys! What a great idea! Lakers ended up being the theme for these cards. We created a folded card out of actual basketball textured paper! I designed a Laker inspired logo using the name for each guy and we customized the wording to include some basketball references. :) Here are pictures of the final project including the one we did for the ring bearer!

Here is a teaser of the cards we did for the girls! I'll blog these soon!
