DIY Spring Daisy Party Garland

Spring has sprung and it’s time to start showing it in your party decor! The first thing that I think of when you say spring is daisies. So it only seemed fitting to find a way to incorporate it into some party garland. And make it a garland that you can re-string to change up the wording for any occasion, now that is some win-win party decor. Here’s how to DIY your own spring daisy party garland. –Lauren

Now string your garland and hang!

Tip for stringing: create a “needle” with a small piece of wire to make getting the string through the cork easier.

Leah + Kyle’s Matte Gold Foil Wedding Invitations

I’m loving every detail in these wedding invitations from Sam and Kelly of Deliver. Art Deco-inspired details, classic typography, and stunning matte gold foil? Yes!

From Sam and KellyOur bride, Leah, was inspired by her delicate 1920s engagement ring. She had the brilliant idea to create a wedding that centered around the era in which her ring was made. We used the things that she loved most about her ring as inspiration for her invitation design: vintage details, delicate but ornate line work, and of course, gold.

The typography lends itself to the vintage details, while the gold and soft gray creates a sense of elegance and glam. Her entire suite was printed with a matte gold foil on a natural color paper.

Lola + Ryan’s Hand Painted Tropical Wedding Invitations

I’ve been loving tropical details of every variety for nearly a year now, so of course I’m loving these lush botanical wedding invitations from Kacey at Hoopla Love. The beautiful greenery and watercolor elements are so perfect for a tropical (or tropical-inspired) wedding! And the combination of soft pink and tropical green may just be my new favorite color palette.

From Kacey: This design was inspired by a lush garden wedding. Brides often ask me to design invitations that match their wedding flowers. For this suite, we focused on the detail within the greenery instead. The greens, subtle teals, and hints of blush infused within the gorgeous leaves creates a fresh, colorful but sophisticated look.

I love the versatility of these invitations. The botanical design and bright, rich hues work for a wedding in a tropical setting, or any garden, spring, or outdoor summer occasion.

Botanical-Wedding-Invitations-Hoopla-Love-OSBP5

The artwork was hand painted with watercolors. The pink, cream and orange mini pom-pom twine that binds the suite together is one of my favorite details. I found it at a vintage trim shop in New York and have been waiting for the perfect invitations to pair it with!

William’s Letterpress Calligraphy Birth Announcement

Happy Monday everyone! I couldn’t resist starting the week with these beautiful baby announcements from Sarah of August Blume for her youngest son, William. Sarah combined a hand drawn arrow pattern with beautiful calligraphy and a sweet photo of her handsome guy. A perfect combination!

From SarahWhen I was creating the birth announcement for our son, William, I wanted to reflect our gratefulness for him and his health. With a rocky start in this world, he spent quite a bit of time in the NICU. William is truly a gift, and we are so very thankful for him!

The announcement was letterpress printed on double thick 220# Lettra, and features a blind impressed pattern of hand-drawn arrows. The belly band was flat printed on one of my favorites – French Paper’s Sno Cone cover.

I commissioned Angi of Angelique Ink to letter his name in a soft yet still boy-friendly hand. My sweet and incredibly talented friend, Beth Morgan, drove over 7 hours to photograph William when he finally came home from the hospital. Letterpress, custom calligraphy, and a sweet baby! Three of my favorite things. Although, the baby takes the cake.
