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!

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…

Ken's 50th Birthday | Jack Daniels

We got the chance to design another JD inspired birthday but switched it up a bit this time!  :)  Invitations were created using the design below and layered on white cardstock with coordinating envelopes.  We also got to design cupcake toppers and a bunting!  Unfortunately, I didn't get pictures of the bunting before it shipped but each panel was black with the white border design and letters spelling out "Ken's 50th Birthday". Each panel was tied together using black twine. So fun!
