Hi Everyone! Hope you’re all keeping bundled up and cozy…
We’re keeping our sights on the #brightside this winter by working on a lot of really exciting projects featuring soft touches and blush and gold color schemes! We thought it would be fun to share some of the fun elements we’ve been incorporating into these projects:
This year lace has been a really popular element to incorporate into wedding details, particularly for the Southern brides we’ve designed for. We’ve added lace to invitation suites and event details to add a classic, feminine touch.
Both gold and vintage have been on trend in the wedding world lately, and the combination of the two is to-die-for! We paired a neutral linen fabric with this vintage gold frame to create a board for escort cards.
Thermography is a timeless, elegant ink style that works for any occasion. For this menu we used gold thermography on a textured paper. Tres chic!
What a fun way to add subtle color and texture to an event! We’re using a pink seersucker envelope liner for a preppy spring invitation!
FUN GOLD DETAILS:
We found this fabulous gold napkin ring at ZGallery and we just can’t get enough of it! Just a fun gold detail that inspires us:
Hand-written calligraphy adds a refined, elegant look to any paper detail: envelopes, escort cards, menus, invitations, etc. We created this piece as a photo prop for a client’s big day!
There you have it! Some of the Blush & Gold projects we’ve been working on. What do you think?!
I hope you are all staying warm in the chilly winter weather that most of the country is enjoying right now…
In light of this slightly dreary time of year, we’ll be surrounding ourselves with bright and beautiful things- you know, a little splashy eye candy to keep us on the bright side. And we’ll be sharing lots of fun, fresh, ‘bright side’ images with you to keep your spirits up, too! Just look for our #brightside posts on Facebook and Instagram for some visual pick-me-ups!
We’ll kick off our beat-the-winter-blues series with this aqua and gold hand-lettered watercolor we created as an event detail for Allie & John’s big day. Sweet sentiment for a sweet day!
Sarah and I have been on a mission this week! A mission to spread Christmas cheer in a creative way. A mission to give back. A mission to give beautifully.
One particular organization caught our attention. They are HomeAgain. Their mission is focused on homeless veterans, families and individuals in Richmond, Virginia. HomeAgain offers emergency and transitional shelters, but what’s so unique are the programs they provide for their residents, designed to build skills and increase self-sufficiency. This Christmas, HomeAgain will provide each resident with Christmas gifts from their personal wish lists. Dear June was able to be a part of this too by providing gift tags for each of the resident’s gifts.
We love this time of year- fun with friends and family, festive decorations, a focus on faith, and the joy of giving all make this such a special season. And one of our favorite things to do during the holiday season is to plan our holiday gift wrappings!
It’s so exciting to find the perfect gift for each of our loved ones; nothing warms the heart quite like watch someone receive a thoughtfully-chosen gift. And what makes the act of giving even more fun is packaging your gifts in pretty wrappings!
That’s why this year we’ve been creating some pretty paper details to help you Give Beautifully this holiday season!
We’re so excited to open our Holiday Etsy shop next week, where you can find our hand-crafted paper details to make your gift-giving thoughtful and beautiful! Stay tuned to our blog and Facebook page for more of our holiday gift packaging styles and information about the grand opening of our Etsy shop!
