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!

Event Industry marketing by Beat Creative, ribbon cutting

Last month we had the pleasure of creating designs for the Event Industry Marketing by BeatCreative’s ribbon cutting ceremony. Christy from Anna Christine Events coordinated this exciting office grand opening event for our friend and colleague, Michelle. Bright, cheerful pops of hot pink and orange were included in every aspect of this event from the invitations to the delicious dessert table.

As a part of the ribbon cutting ceremony, guests took turns signing the ribbon before Michelle cut it in half with her giant scissors. To add to the excitement, confetti cannons filled with orange and pink paper shot into the sky and guests released balloons into the wind. The remainder of the event was spent socializing, and enjoying the amazing catering, like the nitrogen ice cream food truck from Three 2 Oh!

The invitation was the first design we created for Michelle, and became the theme for me to use on the additional paper goods. We were sure to include the “B” logo on all of the stationery because branding is particularly important to this client! Descriptive menu cards were placed on the dessert, food, and drink tables. Foodie Catering provided gourmet watermelon salad, chicken tacos, and Asian meatballs; while Two Sweets Bake Shop and Party Flavors delivered sweet treats for the dessert table.

We recently had the opportunity to take part in a fun Sweet 16 photo shoot and open house at the new Ocoee Lakeshore Center. The colorful pop art theme made you feel as if you stepped right into a comic book. In Style Imagery captured every detail from this “pop-tastic” shoot!

Living sculptures were among the entertainment for the evening. The models’ makeup, by Live Art by Julie, was true to the Pop Art theme. The dot pattern, dramatic lines and bold lips were inspired by the work of the Pop Art Movement leader, Roy Lichtenstein. Two Sweets Bake Shop provided delicious treats from cupcakes to popcorn, and on the menu from Puff ‘N Stuff were mini donuts and milk and gourmet meatballs.

We had fun channeling our inner comic book artist when designing the invitations and paper goods for this shoot. Big bright letters inside of dramatic speech balloons, captions, and the ever popular sound effects (POP!) were all details included in the design of the paper goods. Our work was seen all over the event, from the birthday girl’s chair sign, to the signage for the dessert buffet, to custom round menus. We even designed the artwork for the custom vinyl cling on the DJ booth!
