You may remember the proofs for Jessica’s knockout wedding invitations. Well I’m excited to blog about the finished piece – again a new favorite! View the eye candy – I really don’t have much to say about them except that this was an amazing wedding suite to work on. This was a 4 piece wedding suite for Jessica. We wanted to create variation between pieces but still have them tie together. Pool and black are her wedding colors, and she wanted an old-world feel to the invites. Edge painted with a matching saturated pool, to set off her 1/8″ black border from the front of the invite. These were also packed in pool envelopes for the outer envelope, and black rsvp envelopes. The invitation was printed on Lettra 220# with a full bleed damask pattern overlaid with registration black ink. The typography …

My amazing mom was a caterer when I was young and instilled early in me a LOVE for all things dishes. Instead of paying taxes she purchased (legally, mind you) dishes for her business. Among her collection are original Fiesta ware, Villeroy and Boch, Waterford Crystal, Spode, Mikasa, Dansk, and more. I have to say my favorite memories as a child were scouting antique stores for Fiesta ware or the unique little tea cup or tea pot. I remember for one of my birthdays as a young girl wanting an english tea party. I think I was turning 5. We set out round tables in the backyard and everyone wore their fancy garb. One of the gifts my mom gave me was my first teapot, a china blue squarish pot perfect for a small child’s fingers. I haven’t collected much myself since …

Maggite SotteroI’m not a huge fan of the mermaid, but I love how Maggie has a few red dresses in the collection every year. Wouldn’t that sweetheart bust would be fabulous for a Valentine’s wedding as well. Check out the back of the dress in the bottom right. Hand it over to WhichGoose again for this rocking headpiece. EliarenasGreat for a brooch or boutteneire! These are so cool, they are hand painted and assembled on a pin, I love it. Ring from Suzanne Felson yet again, I LOVE Suzanne!

This is from their fall/winter collection, wouldn’t it be great as a luncheon outfit or maybe a going away outfit after leaving the reception? Karen over at French Kiss Pastries made these lovely …

We’re on for another wedding week. To start off I want to talk about the most important thing that can actually save money with your stationer.  Your wording.  You think, oh that’s easy to take care of. However, if you haven’t knocked it out yet you are fooling yourself in thinking you can do it in one evening. There are mothers and fathers to please, future in-laws to please, fiances and grandparents (yes they always have their advice as well). Not to mention all the wording etiquette involved in mentioning deceased parents, divorced parents, the wedding host, and the ideas of the bride and groom. Gathering details such as directions, addresses, finalized times and program details. It can be a lot for something so seemingly trivial. With that out of the way, I’ve started working on Cesai’s wedding invitations (our winner of …
