When our client asked us to design a "little sunshine" themed first birthday invitation for her daughter, we were thrilled! With bright cheery pinks, oranges, and yellow, this invitation was perfectly paired with a pink envelope, and gold polka dot liners. We love designing custom invitations for your event. Have an idea? Just email us and lets work together!
So if you didn't know yet, we've got a sweet little Etsy shop that we add new things to all the time! Our most popular items are our return address stamps, and we've added 10 new designs in addition to the 10 designs that were posted in 2013. Check it out! Later this month, we will introduce our wedding collection, so stay tuned!
Happy Monday! We are continuing our save-the-date postcard roll out! Today, we are sharing Jamie and Blair's save-the-date. Jamie and Blair are friends of Sarah's that I've LOVED getting to know over the past few months. They are adorable together and I'm so glad they wanted to work with us. Today's post is a little different, because we are going to show the option that Jamie and Blair chose, as well as the other two that we designed. When we design a custom piece for you, we design up to 3 options for Save the Dates. From that point, we work with you until we have the perfect design. The first card below was the winner, the others were a close second and third! Enjoy!
We are on a roll! I know I said we were continuing with the postcard save the dates, but I just couldn't wait to share this one. The bride knew she wanted to use a classic monogram with neutral shades. Originally, the plan was a post card design. But when it came to choosing a picture, it was hard to narrow down! Britton decided to go with the envelope format instead, so a second picture could be used. We also printed corresponding return addresses on the envelopes for an overall cohesive touch. Enjoy!
And we are back for round dos of Save the Date postcards! Today we are sharing Maegan and Rich. When we met with Maegan, she was telling us that she wanted a picture on the postcard...and Rich did not! Now, we can design either way, however... I told her that to me, a picture is personal and your guests immediately place that face with the date. Plus they get to look at your pretty mug for months! So we won Rich over, and this is what we came up with! Enjoy
Hello! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! The day after Christmas can be a busy day for us...it's the day after a lot of gals say YES to their man! Venues are booked, bridesmaids are counted, and it's time to think about the first paper piece for the big day: the Save the Date! We LOVE save the dates, not only because they are fun to design, but also because this is the first anything guests will catch a glimpse of leading up to the wedding day! For all those summer weddings coming up, you'll want your Save the Date to really stand out amongst the others covering the pin boards and fridges of your friends and family. We offer a variety of Save the Dates, but our favorite and most popular is the postcard format. There are several benefits here. They are cost effective (no envelope, cheaper postage), and guests LOVE receiving them. So today, we'll share the first of three Save the Date postcards that we've done recently.
Lindsay and Jason are the cutest couple, from Mobile, Alabama. Jason's sister was a college friend of mine that lived in the house across the street while we were at Auburn. Lindsay would come visit and stay with us on weekends, and I was thrilled to find out a few years later that Lindsay and Jason were dating! Lindsay knew she wanted to use a classic monogram for the wedding suite. This monogram will also be used on the invitations.
Hello, and a very merry Christmas to you! I hope you are all staying snug as bugs with all this awful weather we've been having, and enjoying time with friends and family. The Christmas season has been exciting as usual for us, and we are finally getting a chance to breathe a little and share some recent designs! Today, I'm posting two birth announcements that both feature the photography of Katie Carney of Womb to World Photography. I am just in LOVE with her work. Katie is a stay-at-home mom that realized her love of capturing the moments that mean the most when she had her first baby. The first announcement is for little man Jackson. Jackson's mommy is my cousin Jennifer (You may remember her wedding), and Jackson was actually born on my 30th birthday this year! I was THRILLED! My little birthday twin...the best present I got this year!
The next one is baby Ava, who's mommy is Michelle and a best friend of my cousins! We designed her wedding pieces as well! I feel so lucky to have clients that return to us for baby paper pieces after we've worked on their wedding. It's probably one of the biggest reasons I love what I do. Michelle has been one of our biggest fans and we get so excited to work with her. Isn't Ava just beautiful?

We were so excited to collaborate with Brittany Lott at Elle Affairs here in Birmingham for an Italian Garden Wedding shoot! We worked with Elle, along with incredible wedding dress designer Heidi Elnora, the fabulous Molly Green Boutique, and amazing photographer Kelly Cummings of Spindle Photography. So happy to be part of a great shoot and we are thrilled to be featured on Elizabeth Anne! Click here to see the post!
We've been busy busy (what's new?) and wanted to share some birth announcements we've worked on the past few months. I feel so honored when asked to design these, I love the chance to make something so personal for each family and little one.
I was so excited when a former co-worker of mine asked me to design her little girl's birth announcement. And I'm obsessed with her name...Sweet little Cora Elizabeth. I have been saving this beautiful Japanese crane patterned paper for the perfect project, and thought it would be perfect for the liners on the pale blush envelopes. The announcements are printed front and back, with Cora's name and birthday details on the front, and the back includes her little monogram.
Jennifer has been a friend of mine since sixth grade, and I was thrilled when she married a boy from our graduating class (Jason) and they a precious baby boy. I'm so happy to work with Jennifer and Jason and help announce Mr. James. Jennifer wanted the announcement to be simple, and photography-based. The kraft envelopes are one of my favorites, and I love the verse she chose for the bottom.
Pam and I met through mutual friends, and asked for a custom monogram to be included on Mr. Harrison's announcement, along with multiple pictures (photography credit: Morgan Trinker). I loved the color of his little blanket in the picture on the back, and we let that shape the color scheme of mint and gray. A classic monogrammed announcement...you can't go wrong!
We found out last week that Empress was featured on Style Me Pretty! We are thrilled!!! We worked with Megan and Britton last year for their October 2012 wedding. The design was classic, elegant, and letterpressed beautifully by Patrick Masterson on ivory with a shade of dove gray ink. We are so happy to share this with you today! See the full feature here!
Everyone knows what sweet little boys are made of right? These invitations were designed for a very special client, and we were thrilled when we heard the theme of the shower. With a color scheme of greens, aquas, and navy, we paired the invite with a kraft envelope. These are now available on our Etsy Shop! To purchase, just click here!
Pineapple Productions! Alice and Clarence wanted clean lines with a touch of fancy...which I love. With a color palette of gray and coral, you can't go wrong! Included in this paper package: long skinny wedding program, welcome notes/itineraries for guests, and a label for favors and sweets!
Pineapple Productions again for an awesome wedding weekend in DC for Whitney and Keegan! Whitney knew she wanted a vintage touch, with corals, gold tones, and ivory. Included in the paper package were postcards designed for out-of-town guests to send home, as well as menus, favor tags, guest box labels, and itineraries for the weekend.
