Carnivals and Spanish Lace

Heidi from Zenadia Design sent over a couple new additions to her invitation portfolio, and I was so excited when I opened up the photos that I couldn't wait to share them both with you!  The first invitation design was inspired by a carnival, and features big red + white stripes and game ticket details on the rsvp:

From Heidi: This invitation features a laser cut outline to match the design on the merry go round and a hand drawn illustration by Francis Birchfield.  Reply card is embellished with vintage carnival tickets and red and white stripes line the mailing envelope.


The second invitation has a more vintage-inspired design, featuring lace details and a Spanish feel:

Spring Magnolia Wedding Invitations

Now that the trees have finally started blooming here — from the magnolias to the dogwoods to the cherry blossom trees — I haven’t been able to get these magnolia wedding invitations that Sarah posted a while back out of my head:

With magnolias illustrated by Jen from Swallofield, Sarah created these invitations for an upcoming wedding in South Carolina.  I love the color combination of peach and light gray, not to mention the blind debossed magnolias on the main invitation.  So pretty!

Small + Delicate

Happy Monday everyone!  And happy Passover to those of you celebrating this week.  As we do nearly every year, we'll be going to a seder tonight with some very good friends and I just can't wait for this evening to arrive.  So in the meantime, I thought I'd help pass the time with these beautiful necklaces from Stone + Honey and Polli:

I don't usually wear a lot of gold jewelry, but lately I've been drawn to small, delicate, and intricate gold necklaces like the ones above.  The honeycomb pattern from Stone + Honey is definitely on my wishlist, but I also love the whimsy of Polli's tea time necklace.

{happy weekend!}

Whew… today has really gotten away from me!  But happily it's Friday, so the fact that I seem to be operating on a 2-hour delay today doesn't really bother me.  Hooray weekend!  But in the meantime…
