Bride & Bloom {sneak peek}

We are blushing! We were recently asked by the wonderful Dallas-based wedding planner Gabrielle Tucker (super sweet gal!) from Faire La Fete Productions to create a custom invitation and coordinating stationery for the funky Asian-Chic-inspired tabletop design project she was designing for an upcoming issue of The Bride & Bloom (which is a gorgeous magazine by the way!). Naturally we said "absolutely"! We designed a gold silk box with rich a red cardstock invitation & cards with black raised printing...and here is a sneak peek collage of photos shot by the talented Cesar Perez.

Here is a list of the fabulous vendors involved in this creative editorial project:
Gabrielle Tucker - Faire La Fete Productions

Marion Marshall - Absolutely Blooming
Cesar and Tanya Perez - Perez Photography
Corina Van Sluytman - Bella Invites
Carrie Sellman - Carrie Sellman Designs
Meagan Hayes and Brana Velvin - RSVP Soiree

I will post more once the magazine hits the newstands....stay tuned!

New Silk Designs

Introducing the newest additions to our "Prestige Collection" - the sparkly "Blush Champagne" features a silk backing, Imported Italian shimmer cardstock in a pearly white, satin ribbon belly band in a shade of blush and a brilliant crystal buckle.

The rich "Truffle" design has a brown silk backing, Imported Italian shimmer cardstock in an ivory shade and matching brown ink printing. These two new designs are super practical too, as they both have a cute pocket on the silk backing to neatly hold the Reply card, Reply Envelope and Directions card.

Please note that the colours of the silk backings and silk boxes can be completely customized, we have over 200 different swatches to choose from - just email us the image (dress, flowers, etc.) that you are trying to coordinate with and we'll use our expertise to match it! Just keep in mind to place your order early, as it takes our supplier about 4 weeks to create your custom backing or box. Cardstock, ribbon and ink can also be customized to create that unique and original design that is totally you!
