A Second Reception Invitation

Let the celebrating continue! When a wedding is just too far away for some friends and family to attend it sure is nice to have a post wedding party in the bride or groom's hometown. This couple was married in May in the Washington, D.C. area and their second reception is in San Diego, the bride's hometown. The mother of the bride wanted to incorporate the same designs that I used for their wedding day paper goods as she too has a love of birds. The crisp white and shades of green work for summer as well as spring invitations. A simple single card can be rather fancy when placed inside a thoroughly decorated envelope, don't you think?

Golf and Wine and Turning Sixty

How can wine and golf be combined? At the 19th Hole, of course! This birthday boy loves golf and wine so it was the obvious choice for the party theme. Lots of wine and golf terminology was used... like vintage, "a very good year", Syrah, hacker, sandbagger, "no spikes". And a "Moore's Marker" wine label for the birthday boy that was used on the welcome sign and the water bottle labels. Here's to the birthday boy!

Take Note! Stationery for a Special Touch

Stationery is a great host/hostess gift in my book. And I had the chance to create some especially for some dear friends. Last month my husband and I stayed and visited with them in their home in Massachusetts for a couple days. They moved to this wonderful town, Newburyport, a few months ago and what a lovely town it is! The best part is they are walking distance to just about anywhere one would want to go. And their home is probably about 200 years old with these amazing, original, wide plank pumpkin pine floors. They both have a traditional and classic style, and she loves her garden so I think these just might fit them well.
