{happy weekend!}

Happy Weekend everyone!  Even though I’m still dragging a bit today, I had the best time in New York yesterday – getting to catch up with some of my favorite blog buddies and meeting so many new people at a blogger’s get-together organized by the Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia team!  And even though it’s been a wonderful week, I’m beyond excited for this weekend to get started – my husband and I are going to see Arcade Fire tonight!  But in the meantime…

Happy Friday everyone!  Wow, I don’t know about you, but this week just totally flew by for me!  After one busy week and with expectations for another one next week, I’m definitely looking forward to a relaxing weekend.  If you’re looking for a bit more papery goodness this week, check out my second California wedding invitation post over at the haystack needle!  Otherwise, I’m off to go meet up with a friend about a fun new project that we’re working on (I can’t wait to tell you all about it!) and get started on the weekend.  But in the meantime…

Modern Rehearsal Dinner Invitation

Happy Monday everyone!  I have two gorgeous invitations to help start off your week – invitations to a wedding rehearsal dinner, and then the invitations to the day-after brunch – both from Tova Glenn at Brighten My Day Studio and printed by Patrick Masterson.

First up, the rehearsal dinner invitations in a gorgeous chartreuse and gray color palette.  Tova incorporated a woven pattern into the design inspired by the modern décor at the rehearsal dinner venue, the James Hotel in downtown Chicago:

From Tova: We played off the look-and-feel of the James Hotel, a very modern, clean hotel with beautiful vintage patterns throughout the décor.  We all fell in love with the lines of the woven pattern, and mixed up the old-meets-new by pairing a classic serif font with a bold and modern sans-serif typeface.

The stock on both cards was a double thick museum board, and we paired it with a chartreuse envelope.

Gorgeous!  Check back a bit later for the equally-beautiful brunch invitations!

Happy Friday everyone!  It’s so hot and humid at the moment here in DC that I can’t really think about anything other than giant iced teas and air conditioning.  I would wish for a hammock like the one below, but it’s almost too hot even for that!  Hopefully it’s a bit cooler where you are and you can get outside to enjoy your weekend.  But in the meantime…
