Brunch and Bubbly Bridal Shower

well hello bow!

Pink champagne? You bet. But also grapefruit juice Mimosas (yummmmm) were served at this darling bridal shower. Beyond the party being a brunch, this client/friend wasn't sure of the theme she wanted to go with so we had an amusing time bouncing ideas off each other. I ran across a photo of a pink grapefruit mimosa and that got me thinking... and thinking. And knowing the hostess/client/friend has lots of black accessories to decorate with, this black and white check ribbon amongst my rolls added a fun twist on a classic black/white/pink color theme. Throw in yards of black and white checks for here, there and everywhere, a black bottle split of champagne for each guest and yummy food, and this gal pulled together a charming party!

A Random Party and a Random Invitation

'Pebblestone' is what we call our outdoor place for parties
All the random reasons for the party spelled out in the invitation
I can always count on my son-in-law Bill to dress in the theme colors
Pink with just the right red looks great together
Sometimes I look for an excuse to throw a party but this early fall party was a request of my daughter's. She and her husband were going to be in town visiting from Denver and she had just turned the big 3-0. Of course we'll have a party! 

Paper Source had a screen-printed paper that I couldn't resist earlier in the summer, a pink and red pennant bunting print, so that became the theme for the party and the paper I used for the invitation. I couldn't figure out exactly what I wanted the invitation to say, so... well... I just wrote the words like I was leaving a voicemail message and then ended with the date-time-place-rsvp stuff. Casual and fun, the invitation and the party!

Woodsy Montana Wedding Invitations

a simple postcard Save-the-Date
a natural oatmeal paper on a pecan woodgrain paper
a map that maps out the weekend of activities
envelope liners are fun!
A logo that included an antler is how this wedding suite started. The couples logo combined with natural papers throughout set the tone for this lovely wedding in Bigfork, Montana. Sometimes I fall in love with a paper and right now it's the Envelopments Barque papers. Unusual and rustic and perfect for this wedding.

Baby Shower at Camp Mistwood

Mistwood deserves its own logo

A Compass to guide guests to the baby registry
"Mistwood" actually is the name of the residence where this couple's baby shower took place. So turning it into "Camp Mistwood" was an easy decision! The wood grain paper, Pecan Barque, from Envelopments added the perfect rustic touch in the envelope as well as on the invitation itself. And a few pine needles added that touch of nature to complete the package!

A Fun and Active Sixtieth Birthday Party

This Birthday Gal is the active type. Apparently REALLY active! So the celebration will have a touch of that "get out there and go!" with the party-ers going on a bike ride before the serious celebrating begins later in the day. Blue and aqua ink with some kraft paper for a touch of casual beachy sand gives the feel for their afternoon ride along the coast.

Wrapping up Christmas

"Brown paper packages tied up with string" were my favorite wrapping thing this year. And printing on old paperback book pages to create the letters for the name bunting was quick too. Some packages had red velvet ribbon simply tied in a square knot, some had a red and green plaid ribbon, and a few had a burlap ribbon with a Christmas-y print on it. All were wrapped in brown paper, of course!
