Hocus Pocus 3rd birthday Party

Have you ever seen the movie Hocus Pocus? Please say yes! It's hilarious and ridiculous and we got the opportunity to create an invitation all around this spooky film. A birthday party for a little gal named Lily, turning 3 right around Halloween.

The concept was to create something interactive and super fun since it was going to kids. We die-cut a witches hat and designed a pull-out of the witches striped stockings. Took a bit of maneuvering and testing, but wowza - it turned out every better than we'd hoped. 

quite a spooky witches hand coming for that hat!

Magnolia Blooms / Oh So Beautiful Paper / Nashville Wedding

SO excited to share this post. It was an incredible collaboration between some of the best minds out there and we worked so hard as a team to bring these designs to life. The bride and her mother came to us with magnolia dreams and we did our best to make them come true! See this suite featured on Oh So Beautiful Paper

The Save the Date was letterpressed in blush + gray and we created a custom illustration of Cheekwood, where the reception took place. They loved the idea of a bookmark so we created this magnolia pattern to wrap around the card and be a keepsake for guests.

We also designed this holiday time engagement party invitation. Same feel, but with a festive hint of gold foil and a colorful liner. 

Then for the big day we revealed our plans for a custom magnolia wrap that held all the details together. Inside this luxe invitation was letterpresses + gold foiled and edge painted. Such a gorgeous impact of just how special this wedding would be. The wrap even had a pocket that tucked all the detail and rsvp info neatly behind. The magnolia tree we illustrated was repeated on the custom wax seal.

Even the blush from the save the date made an appearance on the rsvp card and envelope. We really wanted to the suite to feel like you were revealing another level of detail as it unveiled!

All these details carried over into the day of items as well. I love the cohesiveness to this wedding. We got to flex our creative muscles and create outside the box for sure!

Downtown Nashville, Rooftop Celebration

Seeing that we're in Music City, we get asked to create Nashville style invitations a lot. Always trying to reinvent our wonderful skyline! This engagement party took place on a rooftop so we came up with this design as a different take on our downtown skyline. A dreamy nighttime scene with buildings in the distance. We watercolored the background, then used copper foil on top.

A Taste of Tennessee, watercolor invitation

The sights, sounds, and tastes of Tennessee spread across this watercolor painting to give guests a sense of whats to come. We created this custom design for The Tennessee Economic Partnership. Little east, west and middle of the state all represented. A pretty watercolor map and we topped it off with stamps of some Tennessee kings.
