Jungle Diaper Cake

My friend Sara is due next month and a couple of weeks ago, she had her baby shower. I thought it would be more personal to make her a diaper cake with some onesies included. I thought that a jungle themed cake would be cute. Little did I know that Baby Boy Parsa's bedroom theme was a jungle. Sara and many other loved it.

Garden Wedding

Kayla and Juan Pablo knew that they wanted a garden themed wedding next March. I created a mix of greens and purples with a touch of butterflies. Beginning with the Save the Date, they loved the one that I did for Meladie and Scott a while back. I used the same format and changed it to their colors and then we did a magnet instead of a flat card.

For the invitations, they wanted to include as much info as possible for the guests from the accommodations to the map and directions card. Their guests will be thoroughly prepared. I used a green patterned metallic paper to add a little flair to the invites.

The garden theme will be carried all the way through their wedding with their wedding program, table number and menu trifold, escort cards and ending with their thank you cards. What a pretty wedding this will be!

Handmade Papers

Lauren and Kevin
met with me a few months ago and first choose a modern invite with a pocket fold out. Over time, Lauren found this handmade paper and decided to go with an invitation that integrates a love letter style. She emailed me her ideas and instantly I fell in love with the concept. When I received her sample paper in the mail, right away I went to the printer to see if it would feed through. After printing her invite, I had to email her even though it was midnight. Lauren said she "got teary eyed" just looking at it. Here is her finished wedding invitation. I love it!

Square Invite

Jennifer and Jason decided on something different and unique. Going with a contemporary square invite, they didn't want all their inserts to just fall out of the envelope when their guests received it in the mail. I designed an invitation that solved just that. On the front of the invitation is their regular invite, but when flipped over, there's a pocket that holds everything in place. Brown and different shades of green are their wedding colors. Jennifer loved the completed look of the ribbons.
