orchids and high heels and pink, oh my!

these are absolutely over the top ... and fabulous because of it.  thank you to my dear friend andrea of superfine bakery for tipping me off to them. they have inspired a new romance with pink and with orchids, and i am excited about the paper designs that may grow out of this.


plus, i think i need to track down a pair of them just for myself.  just ... because.

cake pop birthday announcements

yet again, i've found myself working on something truly extraordinary with two of my favorite clients, who are about to celebrate one year with their twin baby girls.  never a couple to go the traditional route, they wanted to announce and share the girl's beautiful birth ... and beautiful birthday cake ... with all of their loved ones in a fun, unique way.  i think they nailed it.


this tri-cut foldout opens with a thermography printed announcement, featuring a line drawing of the girls' cake, trimmed in sparkly swarovski crystals.  in the center spotlight is a glorious photo of the girls enjoying their custom birthday cake, decked out in sparkly rock candy!  finally, this announcement offers each guest four delicious cake pops by sweet e's bake shop ... yes, each dipped in sparkly red, yellow and purple sugar.


each foldout was then tied in yellow satin ribbon and shipped in hot pink gourmet food boxes with custom labels.  who wouldn't want to celebrate these girls with a fun-loving (and totally yummy) announcement like this?

crocodile skin + bling = one-of-a-kind beach wedding chic

in the spirit of sharing some of my favorite work, i just had to post some new photos of possibly the most fun custom wedding invitations i've ever done.  i'm calling them crocodile glam, and can't wait to set up the official photo shoot.


the details: white faux crocodile skin book-fold folios featuring the couple's monogram in genuine swarovski crystals, lined with banana leaves, stacked with an array of itinerary inserts, all highlighting an embossed invitation backed in black vinyl crocodile paper.


the best thing about them?  the couple told me most people refused to send back the rsvp cards, as they hated to disassemble something so artfully made!  some have even displayed the invitation like a piece of art or a photo in their homes — like the couple themselves.

if this doesn't inspire creative couples to believe they can walk on the wild side in high style, nothing can.  bravo, nikki and chad!

the white party

recently, two of my favorite clients (for whom i've done wedding and birthday invitations) contacted me about throwing an out-of-this-world white party.  naturally, i was delighted.  they were looking for a mix of mod and bling, with one simple goal: make it impossible for the guest who opens the invite to decline.

White Party Invitation CONCEPT.
above is the winning concept, while below is the final product.  what do you think?  ultimately, my gorgeous clients were floored — so much so that they invited me to the party!  i love my job always, but sometimes, there are extra special perks (like the amazing people i get to work with) that make it less of a job and more a dream.  :)

White Party Invitation: FINAL.
