Styled Shoot - Southern Bride / Homestead Manor / Nashville Wedding

Summer in the South - Southern Bride Magazine: Sara Fried with Fete Nashville contacted us to work on a styled shoot with some talented local vendors. We teamed together to come up with this beautiful spread of inspiration for brides out there. Our part was the paper goods so we watercolored a bird pattern and ran from there. A pretty invite and a menu with a wax seal detail. The flowers and linens really tied it all together.

Chinoiserie Flower Power - Styled Shoot

Our pal, Sara Fried of Fete Nashville organized a styled shoot with some local vendors and we were lucky to partake in the fun. Here's a peak at one of the vignettes we created. Currier painted the chinoiserie pot and FLWR provided all of the gorgeous blooms. This idea would certainly make a big impact at an event.

Scout Guide: NEIGHBORS TO WATCH

If you haven't picked up a Scout Guide before, you've got be on the hunt for a copy. Anytime I visit a new city I try and pick one up. It's a great, highly-edited, guide of local businesses. We were thrilled to be in the Nashville version another year. Here's our ad below, shot by Leslee Mitchell. And you can check out our little interview over on their blog: TSG Nashville

The American Heart Association Luncheon

This is one of our favorite events to work on for our client. Each year she hosts a group of women to gather for a small lunch at her home, in support of the Heart Association. Every touch is meaningful, feminine, and with the purpose of thanking the generous supporters of this special  charity.

For this years invitation we created a watercolor pattern and florals in red & pinks. Then layered the papers with a die-cut heart in the center to add some depth and make it unique. When we cut out the hearts, we deiced those shapes would be perfect as thank you tags. The entire luncheon was thought out and every detail, down to the take-away heart keychain gifts and embroidered cocktail napkins, were thought of.

Bright Lights, Big City / Pre-Grammy's in New York Bash

We got a call back in the Winter about creating an invitation for a pre-Grammy's party. Yes, those Grammy's. To say we were excited is an understatement! The Grammy's were moving back to New York after being in LA for 14 years, so this was a big deal. We really wanted to play up The Big Apple so we created this watercolor, night skyline. The watercolor painting actually pops out of the frame to reveal a pool. This Nielsen Pre Grammy Bash was held at The Pool, New York (which has an actual, square pool in the center) so we found it was a clever way to allude to the evening.
