The Nautical Look!

Hi there!

Well, as many of you know we attended the National Stationery Show in NYC about a month ago and have been busy little bees ever since! We are so thrilled about the stores our wholesale line is going to be featured in all over the country! We feel so unbelievably blessed!

Also, we have some breaking news....we are in the midst of updating the website with a....DRUM ROLL.....A SHOPPING CART!!!!! Are your jaws on the floor??? We know! Such exciting news! It will be a month or so before it is revealed, but we are going to continue doing swanky custom work and just extend our preset designs for online ordering! Easy, Breezy....and swankiness for everyone!

As summer approaches and we feel the heat here in the south, we are constantly seeing nautical images, whether it's a boatneck navy and white striped sweater, a yellow bikini with rope detailing, or a canvas tote with anchor prints. So, we thought we would share with you all the nautical looks we have done, to get you in the spirit as well!

A few months ago, bride Caroline came to us wanting a special invitation for a sailing cocktail party she and groom Withers were having for their destination wedding in Rhode Island. We designed the below custom invitation with lined envelopes, and hands down this literally may be one of our favorite invites we have EVER DONE. (and we have done a lot of invitations.)








Of course we had to also do matching koozies, cups, and napkins to keep the C&W and rope theme through out. Absolutely stunning, don't you think???!

Next we have a few weddings that we did last year that we are still not over. The next two were in Nantucket, and were through event planner extraordinaire Nicole Whelden! Her company, Unique Nantucket we have worked with on many events and her work is amazing!

First we have a sign from the Thursday night party we did, where each guest upon arrival would pick up a sticker to wear symbolizing whether they were an FOG or FOB; a friend of the bride, or a friend of the groom! How clever is that?!




And then we have an exquisite wedding we did, where we created an anchor logo with the bride and groom's initials and used it throughout the weekend's special touches! It was on everything from the menu cards (shown below) to the welcome boxes for each guest and t shirts given from the groom's family. It truly made such an impact visually and was the most spectacular event we have ever had the privilege of being a part of!









And is this not the most adorable idea? Kids don't want or NEED fancy welcome boxes..they want beach pails! And of course what beach trip is complete without goldfish..SNACK OR SWIM!

















Then lastly we have OBA Canvas company out of Orange Beach, Alabama who we did some logo and business card ideas for! We loved ALL OF THEM! How can a girl decide which one is best??? We sure can't.




Well, we hope that everyone is getting some time this summer to spend with their families...and really hope everyone is getting to enjoy the BEACH!!! What is more Nautical than that???!!

XO,

Nico and Lala
