Passport Invitation

Amy and Jeff wanted to keep in theme of their destination wedding and I did a boarding pass save the date for them. For their wedding invitation, they decided on doing a passport. The design includes a twist of a starfish and seashells on a lagoon metallic cardstock and the inside pages resemble the real passport with their wedding info. There can be mulitple pages including accommodations, activites, travel agent or wedding coordinator info. The options are endless. This invitation completes the look for their Mexico destination wedding.

Kelley & Brian

This save the date is one of my favorites. Kelley and Brian love the simplicity of the blue and green stripes and seashell that remind them of the ocean. How could any of their guests' forget their wedding date with such a pretty save the date.

Kian's 2nd Birthday

Laylee and David's son is turning 2 soon. How time really flies. The theme she choose to have is Disney's Cars. Laylee picked this because Kian loves to play with little toy cars and he puts them in his pocket when they go anywhere. How cute.

50th Anniversary

When I was at the Houston Wedding Showcase, I met Joyce and she was interested in doing invitations for her parents' 50th anniversary celebration. I was definitely honored that she choose me to do the stationary. Usually I am doing wedding invitations and to think, 50 years later, they are celebrating the vows they shared with one another the day they got married. Happy 50th Anniversary to James and Sylvesta.

Silver & Red Pocket

My friend Shehanie that I've known since I was 15 called me a couple of weeks ago (and I haven't talked to her in over a year) and said her sister was getting married. They wanted to come over as soon as possible to do Rae and Jeffrey's invites since it was a quick engagement. Rae found a design she liked and went with a silver, white and cranberry. She loved the soft touch the cranberry ribbon gave to the sleek silver and white pocket invite. The back of the invitation is a pocket which hold the response and accommodation cards.

Tropical Boarding Pass

Amy and Jeff are having a destination wedding next June in Mexico. Instead of send a regular 'ol save the date, what better way to announce their wedding than to send a save the date that replicates a boarding pass. Amy's custom design was integrated with seashells in mixes of blues and bright pinks. How tropical! Her wedding invitation is going to look like a passport. I can't wait to get started!!!

Beach Magnet

I met Debra with Designer Destination Weddings at the Houston Wedding Showcase. Within the last week of meeting with her, she has sent many brides my way. They all want save the date magnets. Since I've never done them before, it's been quite the experiment. Although my first one turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. Erin McClure LOVED her magnet and I definitely am excited about doing more.

Diaper Cakes

So here's how the story goes. My friend Angie tells everyone that I can do anything. And I mean anything! Angie had a baby shower last February and I made her a diaper cake. Her friend Buddie asked if I could make her a couple of diaper cakes. Of course, Angie says, "Yes, Thao can make it!" Buddie emails me and asks for a football and baseball themed diaper cake and a tiki/hawaiian themed diaper cake for a boy. How cute! I had a lot of fun making them and it was different since it didn't have anything to do with paper. I hope the soon-to-be-moms enjoy them as well.

Bridal Shower

Michelle called me last week and ask if I could whip up a quick bridal shower invitation that she would be hosting with family and friends. Of course I was happy to! Gen's colors were cherry red and silver and I quickly came up with this invite.

Paisley Invitation

Heena and Zul were referred to us by a good friend of mine and Ben's. I met with them a couple of weeks ago and learned that they would be having a traditional Indian wedding lasting 2 days. Heena picked out the one she wanted right away and we played with the colors of antique gold, dark pink and orange incorporated with a touch of paisley. She said that it would tie in with the Indian theme and the henna drawings that she would have on her wedding day. How awesome is that?
