When Two Sweets Bake Shop asked us to be a part of a styled shoot inspired by every little girl’s dream ballerina birthday party, we couldn’t pass it up! This party look is perfect for little girls who want to grow up to be ballerinas and looooove pink!

For these super-special invitations, we used blush and pink and more pink and white.  We used a tri-fold invitation with a die-cut flap of scalloped edges, tied with a pink satin ribbon and a round tag with ballet slipper.  Inside, a pearl white custom die-cut invitation, coordinating with the folder flap shape, contained the invitation wording.

For a special and festive touch, we used cone-shaped menus that doubled as napkin rings, printed on pearlized white stock and tied at the back with blush satin ribbon. For place cards, we printed a tiny banner with each girl’s name, and attached it to the stick of a gold glitter cake pop. Ballet slipper artwork was used on our favor tags for the pink goodie bags, with a simple “Thank you!” note on top. For a little extra fun, we attached tags that said “ballet” to pink satin ribbon wands.

When you walked up to the dessert table, the first thing you see is a banner with each circle letter spelling out “ballet,” strung together with soft pink satin ribbon. The “Happy Birthday, Maya!” sign featured ballerina artwork on a pearlized background. For each dessert, we designed custom buffet tags in a pinstripe pattern of ballet pink and soft white, backed with shimmering gold tent cards.

We had a blast working together with Two Sweets Bake Shop, who designed the party and created the delicious dessert buffet, along with Bluegrass Chic, who made gorgeous pink and white floral centerpieces! Our favorite parts of the day, though, were the happy faces, giggles and large smiles captured by Bumby Photography. These little girls squealed with delight upon entering the party room, and within minutes, their faces and fingers were sticky with sweets!

Boheme Wedding ThemeBohemian Wedding Ideas

We had been feeling the need to do something a little different when we developed this Moroccan-inspired shoot with Bumby Photography, Bluegrass Chic, and Two Sweets Bake Shop. We imagined a contemporary bohemian wedding with loads of color, textures, and patterns.  To start, the grassy outdoor space was decorated with gorgeous shades of bright fuchsia and medium pinks, orange and teal, accented with dangling florals, glass bubbles, gold elephants and comfortable seat cushions.

We were inspired by ikat, and designed the die-cut tri-fold invitation with a coral, teal, tangerine, gray and yellow chevron + ikat pattern with a gold border. This colorful bohemian wedding invitation was adorned with an antique gold tassel and cord.

At our outdoor table, our round menus used rings of coral and tangerine with gold tassel accent, and were placed atop intricate pewter chargers. Woven chargers and gold flatware by A Chair Affair, and colorful floral arrangements by Bluegrass Chic mixed with bronze and gold vases and candlesticks completed the tablescape.

For a unique twist on escort cards, we created round tags in turquoise, tangerine, papaya, mocha, and magenta, and hung them on woven baskets with gold tassels. We continued these bright colors and ikat pattern in our dessert buffet signs, which looked perfect next to the pink lemonade cupcakes, hand pies, naked cake, and other sweets made by Two Sweets Bake Shop.

Citrus Style Movie at The Peach Tree House from Riant Films on Vimeo.

When we were given the opportunity to work with some of our favorite event professionals for a styled shoot to feature a newer wedding venue, we jumped at the chance! Bonnie from Mobella Events had a vision to highlight the Southern style of the sweetly-named Peachtree House: a styled wedding that was all about the bright citrus colors of our sunny state and vintage touches to accent the history of the home. So many beautiful elements brought this shoot, expertly photographed by Bumby Photography, to life.

We chose whimsical, classic-looking artwork to adorn our invitations and paper goods. Wreaths of oranges, lemons and limes dotted with orange blossom and coral-colored floral created a focal point for the invitation, menu, and dessert buffet sign, and garlands of the same artwork topped the smaller paper pieces. Each piece that we created was backed with bold, juicy-colored paper in a fun, bubbling pattern.

Our custom invitations had an extra-special touch: we used tangerine orange satin, meticulously folded at the corners, as a unique backing. The invitation had two layers of bright paper on top of the satin: first, a layer of tangerine orange to coordinate with the fabric, then a layer with a custom-designed lime green pattern. The couple’s names were printed in bright coral in the center of the wreath artwork. The menus continued the wreath artwork, but with the couple’s initials casually jotted as “m + j” in the center.

In addition to the sign and tags that we signage to describe the citrus-dotted treats on the crazy-fantastic dessert buffet by Two Sweets Bake Shop, we created a custom “Just Married” sign for the back of the classic getaway car from Cole’s Classic Cars. The bold colors that we used on the ribbon banner-like sign popped when affixed to the bumper of the pastel green Chevy.

Bright floral by Bluegrass Chic, country chic pieces from A Chair Affair, custom chalk pieces and seating board by Chalk Shop and vintage furniture from RW Events rounded out the eclectic look for this shoot. We were happy to create pieces that honored the era of the home while still bringing a bit of modernity.

Want to have a cohesive look for your wedding from start to finish? Our pieces can help you with that – from custom save-the-date, the perfect invitation, fabulous and functional day-of papers, and finishing with thank you notes and everyday stationery.  Just contact us for a consultation so we can get started.

Earlier in the year, we were thrilled to be a part of a Southern glam styled shoot to promote the grand opening of the new Ocoee Lakeshore Center. We worked alongside talented event professionals, including Bumby Photography and perfectionist planner, Anna Christine Events, showcasing Southern sophistication in the ‘Sweet as Tea, Meant to Be’ theme. The array of soft green, buttery yellow, vibrant peach, white and gold gave the shoot a welcoming atmosphere.

The romantic color palette flowed through our custom invitations and paper goods as we used a folding invitation with a custom, delicate vintage floral pattern on the interior, and a gold foiled monogram on the exterior.  Response enclosures were contained in a moss green satin ribbon-lined enclosure band with die cut monogram.

We carried the exquisite shape of the invitation over to the exclusively designed dinner menus that were nestled into a pocket of white satin on each gold charger from A Chair Affair. Adding a pale green border and a floral element, they matched the place cards that were attached to tea bags with complimenting ribbon. The table numbers were gold foil with a chic vine detail on white card stock.

For the drink and hors d’oeuvres menus, we layered the Southern selections on top of the floral card stock carried over from the inside of the invitations, giving a lovely framed effect to the display. The custom made Arnold Palmer take-home bar favors detailed the recipe for the Southern cocktail.

From the floral arrangements in white milk glass vases with a hand-picked feel, to the intricate detail of the five-tier wedding cake designed by Cut the Cake, to the whimsical flair of the ‘Meant to Be’ pennant-style banner, we loved the Southern elegance of this shoot!

Last month, we were a part of the Perfect Wedding Guide Orlando networking event at the new Up The Creek Farms. The entire evening had a warm, welcoming atmosphere, thanks to the coordination and styling pros of L.I.F.E. Events. The venue has a rustic atmosphere that was amplified by the vintage Southern decor. Colors for the evening were hues of coral and navy blue with touches of sunshine yellow, which was seen in the vintage furniture brought by Crystal and Crates Vintage Rentals, the floral arrangements from Buds Etc Floral Studio, and the cake by Best Little Cake House, and our paper goods. We’re happy to share some beautiful photos by Bumby Photography.

We created fun, whimsical pieces for this event. Our custom fans did triple duty! Guests could cool themselves, use the fans as props in the photo booth, and also read the credits for the participating vendors. On one side, we printed old-Southern sayings like “Bless Your Heart!” and “I Do Declare!” while the other side was printed with the list of event sponsors. The curved frame die-cut shape gave the fans a pretty and classic look. Floral artwork in shades of coral decorated the corners of the fans and was also featured on the rest of our paper goods.

The custom table cards were another cheeky element that we made especially for this evening. Mounted on navy blue tent cards, we created signs with stereotypical Southern “tips” such as “Be a one-person welcome wagon” and “Have a signature cocktail.” The cards were backed with various patterns of coral plaid behind a layer of sunny yellow card stock.

P is for Pie Bake Shop provided a dessert buffet stocked with traditional Southern treats. We created round signs on picks for many of the desserts, including pecan pie, s’mores, and berry and lemon cream “cutie pies.” Each of the signs featured a single flower to follow the artwork motif. For the specialty “hummingbird cupcakes,” we made a sign on a navy tent card in a similar style to our other table cards.

We love designing invitations and paper goods that are unique and created specifically for a particular event. Make sure you’re following us on Facebook to see examples of our work.

Imagine a wedding on Halloween…what do you envision? Instead of the commercially prevalent orange pumpkins and witches riding on brooms, a more glamorous route was taken for this styled shoot. We were so excited to work with some of our favorite event professionals, including Lee Forrest Design, Two Sweets Bake Shop, Everything Cake, and Bumby Photography, at an amazing location–the stunningly dramatic Grand Bohemian Hotel Orlando.  Imagined by Two Sweets Bake Shop and designed in partnership with Mobella Events, this team of wedding pros produced a romantic look full of candles and decadence with touches of whimsy here and there.

Rich purples and vivid red were used as accent colors to the inky black and gleaming gold that took center stage for the color scheme. Both the invitations and the menus used gold foil on black stock. The invitation was layered on top of gold metallic and black stock with a thick black satin ribbon tied in a bow on one side. Gold foil was used to create an ornate frame-like border around the playful text: telling guests that “the wicked pleasure of your company is requested” and reiterating the slightly morbid sentiment “’til death do us part.” Branch-like artwork capped the top and bottom of the invitation, and a tiny bat was placed at the bottom for a classic Halloween touch.

The same artwork from the invitation was used on the black menus. The round shape of the menus was created by die-cut to fit perfectly on the vintage china from A Chair Affair. We assumed that the cake from Everything Cake was a “death by chocolate” cake! Speaking of decadence, Two Sweets Bake Shop outdid themselves with the amazing dessert buffet. We created tent cards for the various sweets (also gold foil on black) that warned guests: “antidote as yet unavailable.” Bats and skulls and cross bones added a decorative accent that brought back the Halloween theme.

We channeled classic Halloween decor when creating the escort card table. Using our new printed wood technique, we created “tombstones” for the escort cards along with a sign for guests to “find your resting place.” Each card read “here lies,” then the guest’s name, the their “plot” number (the table number). The cards were placed amongst moss for full graveyard effect. The guests knew they were at the correct table when they found the coordinating printed wood table numbers listing their plot number.

We loved that this shoot was so detailed! From the tiny spider on our escort card table sign, to the rosary cross in the bride’s bouquet, to the Day of the Dead figurines on the dessert buffet, everything was so well thought out. We could definitely see this styled shoot translating into a real-life wedding full of beautifully personal touches.

If this dark glam look is totally “you,” contact us for a consultation. We can help you create the perfect paper goods for your wedding or special event.

It may be the end of summer here in Florida, but we’re thinking about cooler temperatures. We were honored to be a part of this wintery photo shoot in 2012 with Bumby Photography (then known as Kristina Grimm Photography). This styled shoot was even featured on Style Me Pretty! Make sure you read the feature here.

The look of this shoot reflected the rustic touches of the location, Wekiwa State Park Boys Youth Ranch, with blue tones, silver, and warm white. We created our invitations and paper goods using icy blue and kraft-colored stock with snowflake borders and a pinecone motif.

The invitations were printed on matte white, layered onto cool blue shantung satin, and backed with a textured white stock for a luxe, layered look.  A rustic brown pinecone was featured prominently at the top of the invitation and on the response envelope. A sky blue embroidery pattern was used as a border, and also lined the invitation envelopes. Both the invitation and response card were enclosed in kraft brown envelopes. We added a bow in blue twisted paper eco-twine wrapped around the envelope for a finishing touch.

Pinecones and snowflakes continued through the rest of the paper goods that we made. Our napkin-cuff menus were printed on matte white and layered onto kraft and designed to wrap around the napkins for a pretty presentation. We also created a “wedding this way” sign to direct guests to the ceremony, which was tacked to a pine tree and accented by some of the beautiful floral by Fairbanks Florist. To complete our stationery suite, we made simple white escort cards with each guest’s name printed in a lowercase handwriting script, then layered the cards onto sturdy, textured white tent cards.

The winter wonderland really showed through in the rest of the decor as well. The all-white wedding cake by Everything Cake featured white nonpareils and sparkling white sanding sugar to represent the snow that Floridians can only dream of. Hand-painted appliqués in icy blue and silvery gray completed the stunning four-tier cake. We also especially loved the bouquet! Creamy roses and softly-colored flowers were mixed with silver-toned dusty miller and smoky succulents, all wrapped in burlap and tied with brown string.

If you are planning a winter wedding, and were inspired by this look, contact us for your design consultation.
