{Corporate Event} Bright Orange and Cream Anniversary Invitations

Orange and cream white corporate custom-designed pocket invitation

I was thrilled to hear from Cessy Meacham recently when she contacted me about creating an invitation ensemble for a big bash celebrating the 5-year anniversary of her travel agency, Anytime Travel Solutions.  I worked with Cessy several years ago on her first-year anniversary invitations, so I was very aware that this busy lady knew how to celebrate in style!  This time around, though, she was doing it even bigger, with multiple events taking place over a weekend, and she wanted to host several of her out-of-town clients at a local bed and breakfast, as well.  So we created several invitation iterations which allowed her to invite different guests to the events meant for them.  Here’s a snapshot:

Anytime Travel Solution’s colors are orange and gray, and one of their many specialties is travel to Italy and the Mediterranean, so Cessy asked to use the Florence coat of arms on the invitation.  We incorporated the design into a bright but sophisticated orange and creamy-white invitation.  The main invitation for her out-of-town guests is a long, folding pocket invitation, printed with their logo and a column of the Firenze design on the cream cover.  It opens to reveal the orange interior, the invitation, and a pocket containing pertinent information.  Additional invitations were created for local guests, inviting them to her ribbon cutting celebration and a special dinner.  We chose matching orange envelopes, with return address printed in dark gray on the back flap.

Congratulations to Cessy and the team at Anytime Travel Solutions on 5 years of stellar service!  And thank you for asking Dogwood Blossom Stationery to be a part of your celebration!

{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.

{Fresh & Sweet} Daisy Wedding Invitation in Tangerine & Sherbet Pink

Tangerine and sherbert pink are perfectly fresh colors for an outdoor summer wedding.  A long and slender wedding invitation, featuring an orange and pink daisy trio tells of the relaxed and intimate wedding that’s to come.  I’ve always loved the idea of outdoor weddings – and had one myself!  There is something about fresh air, cool breeze, and warm sun that makes me feel easy and comfortable.  I imagine this wedding to have brightly colored, unmatched linens popping with patterns, sweet and juicy watermelon slices served simply and without any fuss, and a wedding cake whose Gerbera daisies in light pinks and oranges match those on the invitation.
