This couple had a southwestern theme for their wedding with peach and turquoise blue as their colors. We kept the invitation itself soft hued and then added the turquoise punch with the envelopes. Printed on smooth white cover paper, these invitations conveyed southwestern all over with the touches of fringe, the cactuses, and the choice of fonts.

Baby Shower Invitations: Falling Foliage

My friends Irina + Daniel are expecting the arrival of a baby boy next month. It’s always exciting when your friends start having babies; it’s endless adorableness all over the place. The couple wanted to have a nature-inspired shower with lots of green foliage. So for their invitations, I cut out nine leaves and one pacifier for each set. The foliage pieces were secured with a dab of glue and given a piece of mint washi tape across the stem to make them look like they were taped instead of glued down; the pacifier was hung from a piece of metallic silver string. The invitations were then coordinated with recycled kraft envelopes and sealed with metallic silver circle stickers.

Real Wedding: Tanya + Joey

Last summer my sister got married and I’m only now getting around to sharing a little of the paper goods + details in action. I got to do both the stationery and help her with styling. She did most of the brainstorming herself, but it was fun getting to work on several DIY projects throughout and constantly sending her ideas from Pinterest. I also put together an inspiration board for her before we got down to the nitty gritty.

You might remember her bird themed wedding stationery that I shared a while back, but I didn’t show you everything. Here’s a little look into the blessing tags that guests got to write on and pin (I hand painted mini clothespins mint) onto twine string looping between trees. A welcome message inserted into a mint frame was placed on the guest table and a “love is sweet” scroll decked out the cake table. The chalkboard table numbers weren’t captured, but I did a DIY post on them earlier. Other than that, you’ll find everything below and the program over on the stationery blog post.

My sister decked out us bridesmaids in custom-sewn mint dresses and the groomsmen in charcoal suits with their sleeves rolled up. I think the color palette of mint, peach, and ivory was swoon-worthy — and the bouquets were to die for.
