{Calligraphy Monday} The Blessing of a Sister


Hello there and Happy Monday!

We hope you had a wonderful weekend; ours was filled with a baby shower (Kylie's baby shower!) and consultations with new brides! Such a busy and wonderful time of year.

Today we wanted to share this beautiful gift we created for a client wanting to honor her big sister Tiffany. She came to us with this sentiment and asked if Jillian could write it in calligraphy on this floral textured paper.




The result was a beautiful, heartfelt gift that we know her sister will treasure for years to come!
Let us help you come up with a unique, thoughtful gift, perfect for a birthday or the holidays!

Enjoy this Monday and see you back soon :)

{Happy Fall} Autumn Place Cards


With October and Halloween behind us, our minds are focusing on the month ahead…November!
The weather gets chillier, plans are being made for Thanksgiving, and even a bit of holiday shopping gets started…it's a wonderful time of year!

I love how Emily of Jones Design Company described November in her recent blog post:

"November feels like comfort. Cozy. Warmth. Crackling fires and spiced cider. Brown, crunchy leaves, and chunky-knit sweaters. It's a time to be grateful, reflect, eat once-a-year feasts and usher in the most wonderful time of the year."

We couldn't agree more! :)

To get your creative juices flowing for some of your November gatherings, we wanted to share these autumn place cards we did last year for a client:






A little kraft paper, card stock in fall hues, and sweet little critter embellishments make these fun and festive for your autumn table. Let us know if you have a particular theme or color scheme in mind and we'd be happy to help you create something that coordinates perfectly!

Have a wonderful week, and don't forget to stop and take in the sights, sounds, and smells of fall! :)

{Halloween Ideas} Dressed Up Pumpkin Centerpieces


Hi there!

If you need a last minute decorating idea for your Halloween gathering this Friday, look no further! We're sharing these fabulous "dressed up" pumpkin centerpieces we did recently for a client throwing a  Halloween party…the best part? Guests got to take a centerpiece home!


We used a variety of paints, ribbons, and embellishments to take these ordinary pumpkins from festive to fabulous!


It's amazing what a little ribbon and rhinestones can do, isn't it?


Simply take your favorite ribbon and tie it around the stem, and voila! A fun and festive centerpiece.


I love the colors of this one…how great would this look if you were doing a black and white themed party?


You had me at glitter! The burlap ribbon and cute little squirrel can take this pumpkin well into November.


Metallic paint on a pumpkin makes a gorgeous statement! Again we embellished this one with rhinestones, a little owl, and faux flowers and leaves.


Tying a simple ribbon sash around the middle of this pumpkin (and around the stem) takes it up a notch.


Another style that could easily grace your Thanksgiving table!

The nice thing about the pumpkins in the gold, orange, and brown tones is that they can easily transition from Halloween decor to Thanksgiving centerpieces…especially the ones with faux leaf embellishments!

We hope you have fun decorating your own fabulous pumpkins this week, and we'd love to see pictures of your creative ideas! Feel free to share! :)

Have a wonderful Wednesday :)

{Calligraphy Monday} Outlander Shoot Featured on Green Wedding Shoes


Hello and Happy Monday!

We have some exciting news to share today! Recently our own Jillian Yee-Pham did some calligraphy for a wedding shoot styled by Joyce of La Vie Le Gage Couture Events. The shoot was based on the Outlander books by Diana Galbaldon, which is now a hit television series on Starz. She did the calligraphy for the vows and the apothecary notes shown below, and the gorgeous photos below are by Lisa O'Dwyer.

The shoot is featured on Green Wedding Shoes today as well!




And here are a few additional close-up shots of the calligraphy that we took in our studio before the shoot:

{Wedding Wednesday} Beautiful Orange & Navy Wedding Invitations


Hi there!

Today we're showcasing some gorgeous wedding invitations we did for a wonderful client a few months ago. Sofia and (her now husband) Dmitry got married in Miami earlier this year, then decided to do another wedding celebration in September with family in Spain! What a marvelous idea! :)



We did a shimmer card stock enclosure, then matted the actual invitation with navy card stock. The orange printed border gave it a nice pop of color without being too bold, and the gorgeous orange satin ribbon finished it off with a look of luxe elegance. It's fresh and sophisticated at the same time. Who wouldn't be excited to receive one of these invitations?

We were thrilled to be a part of Sofia and Dmitry's wedding celebration--thank you for the opportunity to share in this special time in your lives!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

{Frosting Friday} Royal & Sweet Birthday Card


Hi there and Happy Friday!

Ahhh, Fridays are the best, aren't they? Especially in the midst of school commitments, work, football games, errands, and everything else you have going on in the fall, there's just a sense of relief when Friday arrives.

Today we're sharing one of the cards we designed for our friends at Sweet E's Bake Shop. It's a sweet birthday card with a fun, embellished, 3D cupcake on the front :)


These can be found in the shop, along with many other designs that we've created--and will be sharing on the blog in the weeks to come. So stay tuned, and also stop by Sweet E's to see the selection! And don't forget to pick up a sweet treat of course while you're there! ;)

And if your week has been especially busy or hectic this week, then this sentiment goes out to you too, even if it's not your birthday--you deserve the royal treatment! Take some time this weekend to get a pedicure, read a magazine while sipping your favorite latte, or simply put your feet up and take in the beautiful weather. Whatever you do, take some time to relax and enjoy!

Have a great weekend!
