Thanksgiving 2012 | Tablescape and Decor

While window shopping shortly before the holidays, my mom and I saw a beautiful tablescape on display at Pier 1 and decided to do our own take on it for Thanksgiving!  It featured a beautiful color scheme that we had never pictured for Thanksgiving before (thanks Pier 1 for the inspiration!).  We added turquoise silk napkins and  fabric to the table along with copper chargers and chocolate brown glass and stemware.  The centerpiece was created using the same beaded fruits and vegetables that we typically use at this time of year but this year we incorporated beaded acorns and squash as well.  Each place setting featured  homemade cranberry orange and caramel apple mini loaves and chocolate-peanut butter acorns for our guests to take home with them with a small tent card that read "Some goodies to take with you and enjoy!"
 
The silk napkins were folded in thirds and placed horizontally over the plates and between the chargers.  A piece of copper cardstock was then placed over the napkin and read "Thank you for being you and for being here!".
 
I love holiday styling and d├ęcor that mixes traditional takes on the holiday with a new and unique spin on it as well!    Never be afraid to think outside of the box and try something new!

Lauren | Feminine Kitchen Themed Shower

For Lauren's bridal shower design, we were asked to incorporate kitchen accessories and pink and white damask!  Loved the girly touch to these designs!  We also designed coordinating recipe cards for the guests to fill out and bring with them as well as favor tags! The design was printed on white metallic paper (as well as the other accessories) layered on black metallic cardstock, and enclosed in a coordinating metallic envelope!

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!

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!
