Perpetually Chic’s Letterpress + Calligraphy Business Stationery

I love love love a beautiful business card – who doesn’t?!? So I was thrilled when Sarah from Studio SloMo sent over the letterpress and foil stamped business cards and custom business stationery that she designed for her friend Lauren of Perpetually Chic. I love the crisp navy and white color palette – and of course the beautiful calligraphy logo by Julie Song Ink!

From Sarah: My good friend Lauren Craig of Perpetually Chic came to me for help in redesigning her blog from logo to stationery to website. She loves all things simple and timeless which comes across well in this paired down set of business stationery. We used a white and navy duplexed paper with letterpress printing on one side and white foil stamp on the other for her business cards. The clean letterpress printed notecard showcases the “Perpetually Chic” logo Julie Song so beautifully hand lettered. Lauren typically uses a metallic gold pen to address the deep navy envelopes.

DIY Tutorial: Mini Disco Ball Place Cards

Every now and then, I think people love to see a quirky, maybe even out of place detail, used in an interesting way. These are the conversation starters and the little things that make your event memorable. So when the disco ball started making its way into tropical destinations, I just couldn’t get enough of the boho beach vibes mixed with something usually saved for the club or ballroom. I decided to stick with mini versions and turn them into a super fun place card and favor all in one. These could also easily be made in a larger version as a vase or pot if you are looking for a little more bling to add to your table! – Lauren

Supplies

Small succulents or air plants

X-acto knife

Awl (or something just as pointy and made out of metal)

Your choice of name cards

Step 1: Remove the ornament top, this will be the bottom

Step 2: Flip over and begin to remove the top mirror pieces with your knife, stopping once you have a circle that is about 1″ in diameter

Step 3: Use the knife to cut into the styrofoam around the circle, pop that out and dig into the foam with the awl to create a bowl for your plant.

Step 4: Plant your succulent or place your air plants inside and you’re done!

So make sure to pick lightweight plants that aren’t too tall. Finish your table design by adding some candles to the table. The disco balls will catch the light and add a fun light show on the table. Plus with all this glitz at each place setting, you won’t want much competing with them! Photo Credits: Lauren Saylor for Oh So Beautiful Paper
