{News} Dogwood Blossom Featured in FFGC's December Display!

We at Dogwood Blossom Stationery are proud to announce that our work for this Woodsy Winter Wedding was included in the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs’ December wedding display! Our wedding invitations and paper goods were custom-created to coordinate with the display. Check out some stills from the display –beautifully captured by Rachel V Photography – below:

For the wedding invitation, we created a custom monogram using a vintage-styled wreath with hand-painted white mistletoe berries and carried the painted mistletoe motif through to the menus and other paper goods. Printed in mossy green on Kraft brown paper, then layered onto textured stark white cotton paper, the invitation is woodsy and rustic, but still formal.

Look at how this menu goes beautifully with A Chair Affair‘s’ charger plates, Cloud 9 Wedding Flowers’ décor, and even the jewelry provided by Swarovski’s Touchstone Crystal Jewelry!

A slim moss green ribbon and wreath-with-hand-painted-mistletoe-berries motifs are the finishing touches that make these perfect without going over-the-top!

{Real Wedding} Jessica & Adam's wedding featured in Space Coast Bride & Groom mag!

So excited to share with you the big news of one of our newlywed couples, Jessica & Adam, having their wedding featured in Space Coast Bride & Groom magazine!  As you can see below, their October 22nd wedding was gorgeous!

Jessica and Adam chose a palette of pale gold, caramel, and ivory for their wedding invitation and paper goods.  Delicate lace and classic timelessness were major pieces of their vision, so we created a folding invitation (below) with an ivory lace overlay and satin ribbon.  We added a letterpress monogram to the front and a topaz crystal.  Inside, their invitation is letterpressed in caramel and enclosures are contained within a band.  A custom-designed scroll-and-flourish motif adorned all pieces of the invitation ensemble.  Breathtaking calligraphy by Grace Edmands Calligraphy put the final touches on this truly luxurious invitation.

We then carried the color scheme, design, and style from the invitation into their ceremony and reception papers.  Their wedding programs contained the same satin ribbon as was used on the invitation, and the menus, escort cards, and table cards contained coordinating motifs and scrollwork.

Thanks Jessica & Adam for letting Dogwood Blossom Stationery be a small part of your big day!  And congrats on having your wedding featured in Space Coast Bride & Groom!

{News} We've been featured in Orlando Wedding magazine!

More big news!  More excitement!  Orlando Wedding magazine featured two of our Welcome Bags in the Spring/Summer 2012 issue, out on newsstands right now.  As the article says, welcome bags are a fantastic surprise for out-of-town guests to find in their hotel rooms.

Celadon green and tangerine, hot pink and emerald green wedding welcome bags

 

Our welcome bag, featured on the left, was created with a Kraft paper gift bag with twisted handles.  It was stenciled along both sides with a celadon green peacock feather.  A square tag, printed on cream, is attached with a tangerine orange ribbon.  A closing clasp is created for this bag using jute twine that loops around the welcome bag tag.

Our welcome box, featured on the right, is a custom-created hot pink box.  It is adorned with white ruffle ribbon and emerald green satin ribbon.  A white faux chrysanthemum sits on top of the box and holds in place a round welcome tag, printed on pearlized white and adorned with two Swarovski crystals.

Have you been scouting for unique welcome bags for your out-of-town wedding guests?  What are you planning to include in your welcome bags?  Contact us at Dogwood Blossom Stationery to begin custom-creating your welcome bags!
