Quick Pick: Fox & Fallow Wedding Signs

These gorgeous chalkboard and timber wedding signs from Fox & Fallow were one of the biggest hits at the 2015 National Stationery Show back in May. It’s easy to see why! Each sign is printed in white ink on chalkboard and stained wood – and you can even add your own details on some of the chalkboard signs. Just beautiful!

Pink and Poppy Bridal Shower Invitations

These modern bridal shower invitations from Lauren at Charm and Fig feature geometric shapes and fun floral patterns! Lauren drew her inspiration from the brunch venue: The Crosby Street Hotel. Such a fun place for a bridal brunch!

From Lauren: Stephanie’s bridesmaids held her bridal shower at the Crosby Street Hotel in New York, and Stephanie sent them my way for her invitations. We used the Crosby’s funky interiors – with its bright colors, mix-and-match patterns, and unique shapes – as inspiration for the invitation design.

The invitations and inserts were digitally printed and feature Stephanie’s favorite florals, color blocking, and a theme of blush and navy throughout. The shower hosts also wanted to include blank cards for guests to write their favorite memory with Stephanie and attach to their gift. I loved this idea, as it didn’t put guests on the spot at the shower.

Instructions

Step 1. Begin with four paper Garden Roses. Using floral tape combine the stems and create a cross pattern.

Step 2. Add in the Sweet Pea Anemones, alternating within the Garden Roses and securing the stems at the base with floral tape. Secure another Garden Rose in the center of your bouquet using floral tape.

Step 3. Around the center Garden Rose, alternate two baby pink and white anemones and secure the stems with floral tape. Place three Bubble Gum Anemones around the center Garden Rose and secure the stems with floral tape. Add in the remaining Two White and Two Baby Pink anemones at the bottom of your bouquet. Secure the stems with floral tape.

Step 4. Trim the stems with wire cutters for a clean finish at the bottom of the bouquet. Add in fresh foliage from your garden or local florist – or add in silk greens for less maintenance. Simply secure the foliage with floral tape at the base of your bouquet and add fabric and/or silk ribbon for the finishing touch!

The tags and labels are ideal for wedding favors – can’t you imagine the round labels on jars of homemade jam or local treats for a summer wedding?? We also loved the idea of pairing the printable tags with welcome bags for out of town guests. I just love the gradients in the watercolor lettering and illustrations!

For the postcards, we wanted to mix things up a bit – we thought they would make a wonderful alternative guestbook! And these postcards are the easiest things in the world to use. Just print and fold along the fine perforated lines – no cutting or measuring required!

The tent cards make the most perfect place cards and escort cards! And as much as I love calligraphy, I know it’s not always in the budget. And that’s the beauty of these printables – just add your own text using your favorite fonts! I used two fonts from calligrapher Molly Jacques – Brushy (one of my all time faves) and Asterism.

If you’re like me and you think dessert is the best part of any party – you can also use the tent cards to highlight flavors of a donut, cookie, or macaron bar!

Wedding Stationery Inspiration: Chalkboard Details

I love the versatility of chalkboard details at an event. They can be styled with everything from a rustic theme to something more elegant, but the best part is that they are easily customizable… which includes being able to use those details over and over after your big day. And you aren’t limited to buying boards in specific pieces anymore, there are great papers that can be used in any of these applications! Here are just a few of my favorite day of wedding details executed with chalkboards and chalkboard paper. –Lauren
