Christening Invitations

My long-time client, Dana, asked me to design the invitations for her son's Christening. She wanted something using baby blue and silver with some sort of embellishment. This is what I came up with-- a white metallic card with a blue and silver argyle pattern and a silver satin ribbon belllyband that wraps around each invitation:

I also created matching stickers that they used on the centerpieces:

And finally, I created a printable thank you card for them:

Twist Card Save the Dates

Stefanie and Chad are getting married next summer and are using gold, pink, mint, and green for their wedding colors. They loved these fun twist cards, especially since they provide room for hotel info for their out of town guests! We also made mini magnets and attached them to the twist cards for the guests to put on their fridge.

Stephanie & Peter's Luxurious Fall Wedding Invitations

I've been waiting so long to share these gorgeous wedding invitations!

Stephanie and Peter are having their wedding here in NJ and it's going to be quite the affair! We wanted the invitations to be luxurious and set the tone for their event, as well as incorporating fall colors.

We went with a deep orange dupioni silk book fold style invitation with a chocolate brown satin ribbon accent and some bling on the front that is shaped like a tree.

The book folds open up and reveal the invitation -- printed on a textured cream card stock, it incorporates 2 patterns as a border, with a crest-style monogram at the top that is accented with Swarovski crystals.

The enclosure cards are tucked inside a silk pocket and include a double sided directions card and an RSVP card with envelope.

Each of these invitations was mailed in a gold mailer, designed to protect those crystal brooches. Diecut labels were created to match and were printed with the guest addresses.

For far away guests, we created a more economical version with a copper metallic pocketfold and ribbon and monogram bellyband.

Antique Gold + Creamy White Wedding

I worked with Maryam and Hamed on their wedding invitations, as well as their wedding day stationery. We used antique gold and white metallic card stocks on all of the pieces and designed them to coordinate with the invitations.

Square booket style programs feature their monogram on the front, and white satin ribbon binding:

Mini menus are double layered and are about the size of a piece of paper folded in half both ways:

Tented signature drink sign:

Placecards are put into these mini frames and also serve as favors:

Finally, guests are surprised with these cute thank you tags
 that hang from the rearview mirror of their cars:

Congratulations Maryam and Hamed! Special thanks to Kisha from Pure Ambiance Events!

Autumn branch wedding stationery

I worked with Jenny Orsini for Tara's wedding reception stationery. The vision was to have rich fall colors and incorporate some branches with a small bird accent. Since gold was one of the colors, I suggested using gold foil on the menus, and they were a huge hit!

Close up of the foil:

Jenny requested mini envelope placecards -- these are perfect for couples that need as much time as possible to make any final seating arrangements!

Congratulations Tara & Michele and thanks again to Jenny Orsini Events!
