This post goes out to my girl, Shana. She had seen my navy and pink post and mentioned that she also loved this combo. So, this is for all you ladies out there who love the chic and elegant color blend of pink and grey!

Found this absolutely adorable save the date idea from one of my favorites, Oh So Beautiful Paper, and HAD to share it with you! Enjoy!

Here’s what designer Kate had to say about the save the dates, “Kate & Steve wanted to incor­po­rate kraft card­stock and twine – two very pop­u­lar trends right now – and the color green. The over­all look they were going for was some­thing a lit­tle rus­tic and organic with an ele­ment of ‘fun.’  I designed a mini pull out bunting for the save the date invi­ta­tion that went inside a mini enve­lope, which also had some accom­mo­da­tion details.”

Here’s a happy little post for Friday!!!

One of my lovely former brides, Heidi, asked if I could help her out with designing birth announcements for her new little bundle of joy. Of course, (since I’ve got baby on the brain myself) I happily accepted! Baby Farrar’s gender was going to be a surprise, so I created both a set of pink and blue invitations. Once little Ethan was born, we joyfully went ahead with the blue. In keeping with Heidi’s beautifully decorated nursery, we chose to use a cute little owl icon. The rest she left up to me!

Thanks to Alison and Travis, over at Bowerstock Photographers, I have a few photos of how the announcements turned out! The talented duo also photographed Heidi’s maternity photos as well as the adorable pic of little Ethan featured in the announcement.

Yes, I have yet another color combo obsession…pink and navy. I was thrilled to find out my latest bride has chosen this color palette as well! (I get so excited about designing with colors I love oh-so-much!) So I thought I would do a little research on what has been done with these vibrant shades. Here are a few things I found (on Pinterest and Style Me Pretty) and wanted to share with all of you!

I found this gorgeous invitation on the Oh So Beautiful blog. They are actually 50th birthday party invitations, but, personally, I think they could be a wonderful starting point for some oh-so-beautiful wedding invitations. Plus I’m a sucker for pink peonies! In fact, I just used similar artwork for one of my favorite invitation sets of the year. To check out that post, simply click here.

Designer Heidi from Zena­dia Design says, “This invi­ta­tion was designed for a 50th birth­day party. Kathy, the birth­day girl, loves peonies and pink and wanted to incor­po­rate them into her cel­e­bra­tion. She also loved the look of let­ter­press and wax seals.  We designed an invi­ta­tion for her with two color let­ter­press, a cus­tom wax seal, and beau­ti­ful cal­lig­ra­phy. Also in the suite were table num­bers, favor boxes, escort cards, menus, and cup­cake and candy bar signs.”

Beautiful work, Heidi!!!!!
