Wine Country Wedding in Napa

Happy Wedding Wednesday!!

A weekend in Napa in and of itself is amazing. But when you add a wedding inspired by a soft color palette and the beauty of wine country, you get one unforgettable weekend. When Meredith and Toby tied the knot last summer in Napa, their wedding weekend was just that. The couple met while attending Stanford, where he played football and she was a swimmer. Toby now plays professionally for the Minnesota Vikings. They've always loved Napa, and thought it was the perfect balance between Meredith's southern roots, and Toby's west coast ties!

They came to us for help create their wedding welcome basket, as well as other finishing touches for their big day! Utilizing a pale pink and turquoise color-way, (which was so unexpected and awesome for the wine country!), we created goods ranging from welcome packets to cocktail napkins for the reception. Grab yourself a glass of vino, and check out this must-see wine country wedding in Napa!

An essential for wedding guests after a late night of celebrating...custom "do not disturb" door signs for the hotel!
The couple's table numbers were adorned with pictures from their childhood. Such a cute idea!
Cheers to the happy couple! Thanks for celebrating wedding Wednesday with us, we hope y'all loved their wine country wedding in Napa!!

Winter ONE-derland Birthday!

It's definitely winter here in Chicago!! We're working from home as -30 degree windchill whips through the Windy City, but today we're reminiscing back a winter one-derland first birthday!! Back in December, one of our photographer friends threw her son, Johnny, a sweet snowman party to remember! 

For Johnny's invite, we used an adorable picture of the birthday boy, and added some winter fun!! The winter wonder (including blue and green snowflakes) carried over from the invitation to the envelope liner for a great surprise when guests opened their invitation. And we can't forget about the monogrammed snowman who also graced the liner...adorable!
Mom, Julie, took all of the goodness from Johnny's invitation and created an amazing party!! Some of our favorites from this beautiful tablescape include a banner full of pictures of the birthday boy, sweet treats that match our invitations, and of course--that snowman cake!
Hope Johnny's party warms your heart as much as it warmed ours!! Thank you to his mom, Julie, for her amazing pictures! Want more of Johnny's party? Make sure you check out his feature on Amy Atlas! So exciting!!

Sugarplum Birthday Party

Happy Friday!

As we're currently trying to survive the second polar vortex of 2014, we have visions of sweet sugarplums dancing in our heads. January? When they're as sweet as this sugarplum birthday party...absolutely!

For birthday girl Preston Avery, her mom wanted to celebrate her December birthday, as well as get her guests in the Christmas spirit! So she came to us with the idea of throwing Preston Avery a party based around our favorite line in "Twas the Night Before Christmas." With visions of sugarplums filling our heads, we got to work on the sweet invitation.

Prior to Preston Avery's birthday, her mom had the sweetest photoshoot inspired by her sugarplum birthday party! We used pictures from the shoot (which included sparkly baubles, candy, and fun treats) as inspiration for our designs. For the invitation itself, we included one of her pictures and adorned it with sweet treats and of course...her monogram!! The invitation was complete with a precious plaid envelope liner.
