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.

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.

Recently featured on Wedding Chicks, this truly unique shoot depicts what it would be like to be wedded in a garden wonderland. Forget small splashes of color, this shoot embraces bright, vivacious hues of popping pinks and outrageous oranges to make a dazzling kaleidoscope on the greenscape of the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs. Perfectly planned by Mobella Events, this shoot was captured by the talented Rachel V Photography.

An absolute paradise for any sweet tooth, Two Sweets Bake Shop created a stunning dessert buffet complete with brownie-stuffed tulips, naked cakes, chocolate-drizzled baked pears, pina coladas, and adorably unique gumball necklaces.  Everything Cake created not one, but TWO amazing and perfect cakes – one bright, bold and whimsical, and one colorful but quietly muted.  Pair the out-of-this-world treats with the extraordinary floral by Lee Forrest Design and rentals and decor by A Chair Affair, and the look is absolutely stunning.

We created a layered invitation featuring bright orange, pink, and green botanical-style florals, colorful butterflies, and bees.  To help tone the bright colors, we included a shimmering pearlized gold layer and a custom-printed contemporary-patterned backing in light blue.  The suite included a custom envelope liner printed with the same blue pattern, and the response envelope was detailed with buzzing bees.  Place-setting menus reflected the style of the invitation.  We added an emerald green hummingbird, kept the pearlized gold as the backing layer, and affixed mini butterflies in a selection of bright colors to the top corner of each menu, which added a unique dimensional touch.

For a huge dose of color, we created an escort card display using die-cut “fluttering butterflies” in fuchsia, tangerine, chartreuse, lilac purple, and sky blue, printed with guests’ names and table assignments.  We created a sweet “Meant to Bee” strung banner that can double as an aisle sign at the ceremony and a decor item on the dessert buffet or cake table.

One of our favorite details of this shoot was the confetti bar!  We created simple die-cut signs for this super fun display of colorful puff balls, paper shreds, and sequin confetti.  Seriously, is there anything more festive and fun than a confetti toss?

{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:

FFGC December Display

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.
