Wedding Invitations — Bird and Banner, part 2

Bird and Banner was one of the first invitation design studios that I featured here, just after I started blogging back in September.  I love, love, love the work of Bird and Banner, so I wanted to save some of their work for a later time – and what could be a better occasion than my 300th (!!) post?

So, continuing my recent infatuation with handkerchief wedding save the dates and invitations, this gorgeous invitation suite was hand-printed on vintage hankies and post cards:

This engagement announcement was inspired by the groom’s regular trek from DC to NY via the Chinatown bus:

This invitation suite combined hand-printing on fabric with letterpress for an unbelievably gorgeous result:

Handprinted Save the Date post cards:

Love the elegance of this black and white suite featuring stitched ribbon for a Spring wedding…

…and lobster bib Save the Dates for a Fall wedding in Cape Cod:

And I love these photo booth Save the Dates (and vintage stamps!):

Four Seasons Postcards – Bailey Doesn’t Bark

I’m a huge fan of the ceramic pieces from Bailey Doesn’t Bark, but today I noticed something a bit different – these four seasons postcards, each with a tree representing one season:

I’m completely smitten with the simple beauty of these postcards.  You can find them right here.

p.s. Did everyone see these gorgeous table numbers that Ez just posted on Creature Comforts?  She was inspired by a mustard and blue inspiration board from snippet & ink.  The table numbers are available for (free) download right here.

{bonne weekend!}

I'm heading out a bit early this afternoon.  I hope everyone has a wonderful long weekend – I'll see you all here again next week!

Pearl & Marmalade – Habitat Geometrics

I'm loving this new note card series from Pearl & Marmalade called Habitat Geometrics:

I love the mix of natural forms and the geometric prism design.  As Pearl & Marmalade says:  So one day we put Critters + Geometric Forms + Botany in a cotton candy maker and this note-set was what came out!  The four-part series includes a praying mantis, a sting ray, a crested crane, and a snail.  Available separately or as a set right here.
