Monday Matinae Feature | Rabobank Dinner Party

Last spring we were contacted by Colleen Bauer (owner of Fairy Godmother Coordinating Service) in regards to designing some elements for a dinner party that Rabobank was having!  Colleen works at Rabobank as well and we were thrilled to design for the party which was going to included some pretty important guests! 

Colleen selected an apple green and chocolate brown color scheme which was so unique and beautiful for Spring!  We designed square menu cards using the color scheme as inspiration that featured calligraphy flourishes that were printed on white metallic cardstock and layered on bronze metallic cardstock.   We folded each napkin to create a pocket, tucked the menu cards inside, and tied it off with a satin chocolate brown ribbon.  Also designed were coordinating place cards and monogrammed notecard sets for each guest as a favor along with delicious cookies provided by Anamie's Sweets!

We loved working with this group of vendors and how everything turned out!

And one more final picture I took using my phone...

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…

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…
