Lindsay and Ryan’s Illustrated Wedding Ceremony Programs

We saw Lindsay and Ryan’s beautiful wedding invitations from Melissa of Atheneum Creative earlier this morning – and Melissa was also kind enough to share the ceremony programs that she designed for this beautiful wedding! We so rarely get a peek into a full ceremony program so I thought it was worth highlighting in case any of you are on the hunt for some ideas and inspiration. Melissa created custom portrait illustrations for the entire bridal party and illustrated the order of the ceremony. So fun!

Today I Love…

Over the past few weeks I’ve developed a major thing for ceramics. I’ve always had a soft spot for pretty plates and mugs, but as I’ve discovered more independent artists making hand crafted ceramic goods that soft spot has grown into a full on obsession. Their Instagram accounts also tend to be some of my favorites, fueling the OMG I have to have that right now please feelings even further. Today I thought I’d highlight a few favorites!

Wedding Stationery Inspiration: Jewel Tones

As the colder months approach, most think it’s time to put color to the side for a while. Maybe you want to save the neon details for a spring or summer wedding, but why not incorporate your favorite colors in a deeper shade using jewel tones? Were you hoping for a bit of pink in your winter wedding? Try a berry shade. Or maybe a pop of green? Try emerald. Here are some of my favorite jewel tone stationery pieces for your wedding day! - Lauren

What are your thoughts on color for the fall and winter? Do you stick with muted tones or continue on with your favorites from the warmer months?

Book Preview: Make & Give

I was absolutely thrilled to receive a review copy of the amazing new book Make & Give by Erin Jang and Steph Hung – I’ve been looking forward to this book for a long time! I’m a longtime fan of Erin’s design work and Steph is an amazingly talented stylist, so you know a collaboration between these two talented ladies was just bound to be good. I also admire Erin’s ability to come up with (and execute!) the most amazing party themes, from birthday parties to baby showers. Erin and Steph designed the book themselves with an emphasis on bright colors and a modern layout – and the results couldn’t be prettier!

Make and Give Cover OSBP Book Preview: Make & Give

Make & Give features 35 modern and meaningful craft projects for a variety of everyday occasions – not just birthdays and holidays. I love that the projects can be completed by crafters of all skill levels with commonly used materials! It was hard to pick favorites from the 35 projects, but I really love the Custom Growlers and Progressive Date projects – such fun ideas!
