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. 

Event Planning: H3 Events

Calligraphy: Val Cole Calligraphy

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!

wedding at Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards

Knowing the sweet bride, we were already excited about this particular wedding, but when we heard her location was Pippin Hill Farm, our enthusiasm pretty much doubled. The farm & vineyard is set in the Virginia countryside.

The bride really wanted to incorporate the landscape so we designed a custom watercolor that showed the Pippin Hill Barn and scenery + included a touch of hydrangeas and greenery that would be incorporated in the wedding. We used watercolor finish paper and backed the save the date with a gray woodgrain cardstock. Hope you enjoy all these dreamy pictures by Laura Gordon

The whole wedding suite featured various textured papers and soft colors. We also took some of the illustrations from the invitation and carried them through on the day of materials. Napkins, programs, and welcome bags. Lots of beautiful items for a beautiful bride.

Every single item you created for the wedding was absolute perfection. I wasn't the best at articulating my vision the first few tries, and despite my shortcomings, you nailed it. All of it. And then some. 
Your creations helped direct and reinforce the feel  and theme of our engagement and wedding weekend. I can't tell you the number of  people telling me who told me everything you created was so me. That is a true testament to y'all. You all are an absolute delight and it was a pleasure working with you.

The Nashville Symphony Fashion Show with Zac Posen

Typically we're both running around town in jeans, flip flops, and no makeup. Not the most fashionable gals in town, but despite that we do appreciate fashion and love looking to it for inspiration. So when The Nashville Symphony Fashion Show approached us to help with this years event along with You're Invited, we felt pretty fancy. Zac Posen was this years featured designer so we went right to work playing around with his designs. We created an embroidered watercolor floral design based around on of the gorgeous fabrics. It became the visual inspiration for the whole event! The patrons party, the bar, the programs, the paper flower wall (wowza), signage, it was all amazing!
