The Woodsy Wedding on Ruffled!

When my daughter and her new husband found out from their fabulous photographer, Braedon Flynn, that their wedding would be featured on Ruffled blog they were beyond thrilled. They truly loved their wedding day because everything about it was so completely them, and to have others think it's big-time blog-worthy is certainly flattering. And nothing could make this MOB, paper goods creator and co-event designer (there were a few creative brains at work) happier! Go on over to Ruffled and check out the whole post and gallery. And if you haven't seen the invitations in a previous post check them out here.

Autumn Personalized with Pumpkins!

This is my trial year for scarring pumpkins. Last year while visiting a barn that is a venue for weddings I saw a pumpkin that had "Here Comes the Bride" across it and it fascinated me. I said, "How on earth does one do this?" and the owner gave me a few pointers and I went from there. I've had fun watching them grow and see which scarring tools worked the best. I decided some classic Halloween words would be fun as well as friends' names and a couple wedding related ones too. Next year I'm really going crazy. Yikes!

Tailgate Party on the Eve of the Big Game - Ticket Invitations!

They are Notre Dame fans and super fun clients of mine and they are having yet another sure-to-be-fabulous party. On the eve of the Maryland vs. Notre Dame football game the party is at their house. And if their friends don't have tickets to the game they at least have tickets to the Tailgate Party!

And the gold paper clips? It just seemed like the perfect little detail. Whenever my husband and I are given tickets for an event they are paper-clipped together and put in a simple little envelope. And both of the teams share gold as a school color.

Sometimes a client has a style or theme in mind, and sometimes I just come up with something that I hope will peak the interest of the recipient. This time when I asked my client if she had an idea of what she wanted she said "a ticket, maybe?". So a bunch of tickets is what she got! Since this party was actually auctioned off of at a school fund raiser I decided that along with some silly "fine print" I should add a thank you to the bidders as well on the backside of the tickets.
If you're going to a tailgate party don't forget your pom poms!

Beverage Label Save the Date

Well, the clients liked the label the best so I made some final tweaks and they are out the door tomorrow! Having dark envelopes meant a coordinating mail label was needed. It's certainly not the standard fare that is found when one opens their mailbox so this save the date should be fun even before it is opened!

Engagement Party with Decorations in Hand

The wine? A "Special Engagement Reserve" in honor of the newly engaged couple.

A special "Diamond Ale" beer!

The super fun thing about custom labels on party beverages is your guests help set the theme of the party by carrying around the decorations. Let the party begin!
