Kraft paper is one of my favorite materials any time of year, but even more so during the holiday season. I love the combination of kraft paper (or even chipboard) and white lettering for party invitations and place cards. You can also use kraft paper lunch bags as easy menus for holiday dinners or attach little flags to toothpicks or straws to help guests keep track of their drinks for a New Year’s Eve party. Since Thanksgiving is next week (!!), I thought I’d round up a few of my favorite kraft paper details…

Happy Friday everyone! My husband just reminded me that we’re heading into a long weekend (he keeps track of these things more closely than I do, apparently), so that’s nice! I was already looking forward to a laid back weekend, but am grateful for the extra day to catch up on errands and hopefully relax. But in the meantime…

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
— Steve Jobs, 2005 Stanford University Commencement Address
Leslie and Ryan’s woodland-inspired wedding invitations come to us from designer Yvonne Pingue and photographer Scott MacDonald. The modern invitation features a double-sided design inspired by the natural environment of wedding venue on the California coast and the couple’s love of music. I love the way Yvonne incorporated pattern and bright color into the invitation to retain a modern design sensibility.
From Yvonne: For Ryan and Leslie’s wedding invitation, I wanted to illustrate their love for both Big Sur and music, while keeping it clean and modern. Their wedding was taking place at the Henry Miller Memorial Library near the coast, so I knew I wanted to incorporate the ocean. They are also die-hard music fans and travel all over the country for music festivals. I researched music posters for inspiration and tried to integrate that style with the natural environment of Big Sur.
