Darling Dexter DIY

Whitney created some of the most beautiful DIY paper projects for her recent wedding — and lucky for us, she's now consolidated those projects into one post for some fabulous wedding inspiration.  Her ceremony programs were a particular favorite of mine.  Check out the full post, with links to the originals, right here.

Today I love…

It’s been a long, rough week (at least for me), so I thought I’d this morning off with a bit of inspiration…

I’ve spent quite a bit of time in eastern Africa and have a few Kuba cloths that I’m not quite sure what to do with.  I don’t think I’ve got enough to cover a sofa, but at least now I have a few new ideas!

I’m loving the folk-art quality of this table runner.  Right Maggie?

I know, I know, I’ve posted photos of anemonies before… but I love them!  And this bouquet of black and white anemonies is just the epitome of classic beauty.

I want this yellow wallpaper.  And the red piping on the curtains?  So fun, and a great way to incorporate red into a room without it being too overwhelming.

Cheree Berry — Wedding Invitations

As promised, here is the second part of my three-part feature on Cheree Berry – wedding invitations!  During the custom design process, Cheree looks for inspiration in the details provided by the client, such as photos of the wedding dress or flowers, story of how the bride and goom met, or even the wedding location.  Cheree works with her clients to pull all these details together into a wedding invitation that uniquely reflects the client’s style.  Here are a a few of my favorites:

{oiseaux d’amour}

Save the Dates by Cheree Berry

This is the first of three posts featuring Cheree Berry designs.  Cheree has created some of my all-time favorite invitation and Save the Date designs, and I am so excited to be featuring her work today! Chances are you’ve already seen Cheree’s work in Martha Stewart Weddings and Modern Bride, among others, but just in case you’re not familiar with her work, here’s a bit of background on the creative force behind these lovely designs:

Cheree is a former graphic designer for Kate Spade in New York City, where she partnered with Crane & Co. to create the Kate Spade wedding stationery album.  In January 2006, Cheree launched her own custom paper line, Cheree Berry Paper.  Cheree is known for whimsical designs, including envelope liners inspired by vintage wallpaper, unexpected paper sizes, and touches of gold foil.

Today we’re starting off with Save the Dates.  I know a lot of you are in the process of looking for inspiration for your Save the Dates, and Cheree Berry is full of inspiration, whether its simple Save the Date postcards or multiple pieces with accommodation information:
