{happy weekend!}

Happy Friday everyone!  The siren song of the weekend is absolutely calling my name today.  I’m off to go check out a new-to-me farmer’s market (I can’t get enough of all the amazing summer fruit and produce!) and then get the house ready for a visit from my husband’s parents this weekend.  I’m looking forward to showing his parents around our new neighborhood (it’s their first visit since we moved back in January) and to a visit to one or two of the Smithsonian museums (we usually save trips to museums for a visit from out-of-town family or friends).  But in the meantime…

The World on a String…

Oh my.  The newest letterpress print from SeeSaw is all sorts of adorable…

Designed by SeeSaw intern Aymie Spitzer (great job Aymie!) and printed in three colors – pink, yellow, and blue – for a complete steal at $7.  I’m completely smitten.  Check it out right here!

Summer Cloud Wedding Invitations

With the summer heatwave beating down on the East Coast this week, I’ve been dreaming about an escape to the beach (or the mountains, really anywhere with a breeze and cooler temperatures).  These dreamy cloud invitations from Moontree Letterpress remind me of breezy afternoons on the beach, just watching the clouds roll by in the sky:

Jeremy + Jennifer’s Yellow and Blue Modern Floral Wedding Invitations

I really couldn’t be more excited to share these invitations (and Save the Dates!) – exactly one year ago today, Jeremy won a Save the Date contest sponsored by Delphine.  Since his fiancée was out of town during the contest, Jeremy took a bit of groom initiative and submitted an awesome inspiration board for a fabulously fun wedding full of camping and canoeing, and won!  Well, today Jeremy and Jennifer are back with their beautiful blue and yellow Save the Dates and wedding invitations – all based on Delphine’s hibiscus design:

From Erika: I was so excited when Jennie and Jeremy won the contest last year!  After exchanging emails with Jeremy, I learned that they are getting married at a camp (canoes! fresh air! adorable!!!), their favorite colors are yellow and blue, and they wanted to impart a fun, breezy, fresh and modern feeling with their invitations and save the dates.

We agreed the Hibiscus design was just perfect for them, letterpress printed in “mimosa” and “bleu” inks on bright white paper.  The flowers are little scribbles and helped keep the design on the informal side, which is perfect for their location.

The “stitched” border brings in their love of fabric, which they will be using in the decor at their wedding.  We paired it with bright yellow envelopes, so guests would know something fun was in the works before they even opened up their mail.

I’m completely in love with the entire design, from the bright blue and yellow hues to the stitching detail and sweet floral element.  Congrats again to Jeremy and Jennifer, and thanks so much to Erika and Delphine!
