Matinae Monday | Natalie + William's Wedding, Pt. 1

MDS has a new look!  We hope you enjoy the blog-site and all of the new features it has!  A huge thank you to Shalon with Pretty Lovely Design for coding everything and getting it up and running! I'm still in the process of updating some of the pages and info but was too excited to launch it to wait any longer. Check back for more updates and posts as I attempt to catch up on blogging. :)

Today, I am so excited to feature Natalie + William's wedding!!  They were married on October 16, 2010 (I told you I'm behind on blogging...you thought I was kidding huh? Haha) at the Noriega House in Bakersfield, California.  We had the opportunity to design several elements to their wedding day.  They choose a color scheme of purple, silver, and a darker shade of gray as an accent.  We designed matte purple "Signature" pocketfolds that featured a silver mat, pearl panel and inserts, and a custom silver embossed monogram.  The invitation was wrapped with a pearl belly band that featured their monogram and was sealed in a silver envelope with dark gray addressing and return addressing.  Programs featuring a die cut cover and gray cording were also made for the ceremony along with a seating chart, table numbers and bride and groom chair signs for the reception.  We also provided the couple with silver chargers, a wrought iron easel and card basket, and napkin folding services.  The bride's mother made homemade jam favors for each guest which we placed on the napkins.  The table set-up looked amazing and complimented the garden setting perfectly!

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…

Brea + Byron | "Mustache Bash" Couple's Shower

Here is part 2 of Brea and Byron's baby shower designs!  For their couple's shower, they wanted "Mustache Bash" themed invitations incorporating a mustache and bow tie!  We were dying to design using this theme so we were thrilled when they contact us!  A chalkboard texture and chevron stripes were added into the design along with a black and white newspaper print pattern that is actually the same fabric that will be in Baby Young's nursery!  Brea's a teacher and wanted books for her little one so a book insert was also included in this design.  Love this idea!
