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

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!

Florence + Cooper Wedding / Nashville

There is just something extraordinarily special about getting married at home. It's a space filled with family memories that welcomes in the bright future ahead. Florence & Cooper celebrated their wedding nuptials at her grandmother's home. A grand space filled with character and Southern hospitality, and a space that has been truly loved by the family. The couple put their own touches on the evening to make it feel true to them while blending in both families. Florence's mother, Libby Page, wedding planner extraordinaer, made sure the evening went off without a hitch! We loved being a part if it all. See more on StyleBlueprints feature

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.

Brookside engagement party - Wales, Tennessee

We get to be included in some really fun events for clients, but rarely are we invited guests! This summer engagement party was the exception, because it was one of our friends! The festivities took place at the brides parent's country home, Brookside, in Wales, Tennessee. Beautiful rolling hills, a Greek revival home built in 1845, yummy southern fare, and rosé flowing. It was personal, and inviting, and lovely on every level. Straight out of the pages of Garden & Gun magazine. In fact, the home was in the magazine at one point… See here.

Needless to say it was a joy to be a guest and also a joy to create all the graphics for the evening. Florence & Cooper are a lucky couple and we look forward to continuing the celebration up until their big day!
