Wedding Day Paper Accoutrements in Shades of Green

Two maps were needed for their welcome bag card, Old Town Alexandria, VA and an area of Washington, D.C.

Their C & C logo dangles from the program

Birdcages and birds with pretty shades of green and white florals were the theme for this wedding and reception in the Washington D.C. area. The bride shared photos of the fabulous and slightly rustic birdcages, a charming variety, she planned to use and I'm sure it looked fresh and lovely. With that touch of rustic thrown in it seemed the natural jute twine would be good to wrap around  on the programs to hold the circle tag. Their logo is on one side and an Ecclesiastes "A cord of three strands is not quickly broken." verse is on on the other.

Graduation Party Chalkboard Invitation

This high school graduate wants to become a teacher so an old schoolhouse theme was chosen for the party. The grad's favorite colors are red, black and white which hardly seems old fashioned, that is until you throw a little burlap into the mix. A printed chalkboard, a touch of red check ribbon and kraft paper envelopes are setting the scene for the guests. I don't want to spoil any surprises but I think there will be fried chicken, mashed potatoes and number 2 pencils!
