Monday Matinae Feature | A Rock 'N Roll Baby Shower

Ashley contacted me last summer and I had the pleasure designing for her baby shower!  She e-mailed me this  post from Hostess with the Mostess along with a picture of the adorable Michael Miller fabric she had picked out for the nursery as inspiration for the shower.  We decided to design using the same color palette from the fabric and to add interest to the design, we used several fonts paired with guitars and stars as the graphic elements.

We also had the opportunity to create a candy bar for the shower!  As most of you know, I had been doing candy bars for events by word of mouth but we recently officially launched the business as Sugar Rush Candy and Confection Bars.  Ashley had seen candy labels on another blog that featured cute sayings that tied into each type of candy (Ex. "We're going to love Tristan to pieces" for Reese's Pieces,  "He'll be cute as a button" for button candy, "We hope he won't be a nerd but are betting he'll be a smartie" for Nerds and Smarties, etc.). Loved this idea!  We created coordinating labels for each of the containers that we were providing her with and designed glassine bags for her guests to fill with the candy!  Below are several pictures of the designs along with a couple of pictures I was able to take while we set up the candy bar and a few from Ashley herself!

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…

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…
