Tis' the season {for bridal showers}

When my good friend Robin asked me to design her wedding invitations, I was honored. It is always fun when you can bring someones idea to life. So you can believe when her maid of honor asked me to design her bridal shower invitations I was even more thrilled! Robins colors are very unique, grass green, eggplant and rust orange. So for the bridal shower, they are incorporating all the colors into the theme of Italy (where they are honeymooning). There will also be LOTS of flowers. So with that in mind here is the invitation I came up with and should tie into the shower perfectly!


Shower Weekend

This weekend is my very good friend Michelle's bridal shower. I feel like just yesterday we were all in College, acting silly with no cares in the world. Now that we are all "grown ups" (I air quote this because we don't like to think we are quite yet!) we have all been taking the next step in our lives. Weddings, buying houses, and landing real jobs. While I digress on the subject of growing up, I should get to the point of this post. I was lucky enough to design the bridal shower invitation for Michelle. The location of their wedding is Saltwater Farm Vineyard in Stonington, CT. I thought that a great design would be based around the vineyard. You can see below what I came up with! Congrats Michelle!


Invitation Inspiration

When I look for inspiration, I look for a couple different things. Color, shapes, and detail, to name a few. I look for anything that could possibly be turned around and made into something design worthy. When designing an invitation, I love to look for inspiration on wedding blogs. Style Me Pretty, True Event and Life in the Superburbs are just a few that I look up to in looking for inspiration. They truly have the best ideas and real life weddings to get inspiration from. This story board of lovely invitations really gets my ideas flowing for new ideas!


Save the Date!

What is more fun than designing a vintage, love for type faces, navy, yellow and gray piece of stationary? Nothing really! I am so pleased to share this lovely save the date I designed for the fabulous Sara Bell. I cannot wait until I can share with you all, the entire invitation suite for her wedding!




Wedding Wednesday

Even though I have already planned and experienced "the BIG day" I still can't help but look at wedding blogs. One of my top wedding blogs that I run to almost everyday is Style Me Pretty. I always oooo and awww over all their story boards and all of the great details that go into every one of the weddings! They have this great new build a board where you can now build your very own story board! I am in desperate need of summer and this is just what I needed to day dream. While summer seems so far away, enjoy this summery wedding board.


It's fun to turn one!

This special little lady is turning one and her mom asked me to design her first birthday party invitation. This photo is just precious and she certainly is starting to look like a little lady! The photo was taken by the talented Melissa Brott seen here.


Grams & Co.

I get so excited when I get to help someone build their brand! I was approached by Megan who is the mastermind behind Grams & Co. If you are looking for something to keep you warm for the winter, she is the girl to run to. Whether it be hand knit mittens, headbands, hats, scarfs etc., you know where to go! Christmas is right around the corner, so if you know someone who loves anything warm and stylish, think of Grams & Co.
Go and "like" her on Facebook!

When designing her logo, it needed to be something colorful and fun, just like her!
