Whimsical Pink and Navy Wedding Invitations

Navy and pale pink is just such a great color combination. It was the color palette for this year’s Paper Party invitations back in May – and I’ve been a fan ever since! These wedding invitations from Designed by Jaclyn were created for Jaclyn’s sister and combine a modern sans serif typeface with whimsical script and beautiful line illustrations! I’m also loving the navy and pink color palette for a fall wedding!

From JaclynA light and airy invitation design with hints of floral touches and modern typefaces set the tone for the event. We used a clean sans serif typeface paired with a whimsical script to create a playful feeling to the invitation. We were lucky to have the main invitation letterpress printed by a lovely local studio, Dependable Letterpress, which added a touch of texture and luxury to the suite.

Along with the invitation, we included an illustrated map of the venue. Inspired by a few of the couple’s favorite things, I tried to incorporate a few subtle personal touches to the map illustrations that would add personality without overshadowing the information, like the Golden State Warriors logo (the groom’s favorite team) and an illustration of two otters holding hands (the bride’s favorite animal).

To complete the suite, a RSVP tag and navy baker’s twine was used to tie the invitation pieces together and add a pop of color. My sister and her now-husband absolutely loved their invitation as it reflected both their personalities and the spirit of their wedding day.

Happy Weekend!

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a beautiful week! We’re expecting another crisp Fall weekend here in DC, and I’m really enjoying these clear days before the temperatures get cold. Sophie is studying trees at preschool this month, so we’re planning to go collect some leaves and acorns this weekend! But in the meantime…

Decorating with Copper

Copper is one of my favorite metals any time of year – but especially in the fall and during the holidays! I even get a bit giddy whenever I see greeting cards, wedding invitations, and business cards with shiny copper foil. For my latest eBay guide I thought I’d go beyond stationery to share a few favorite ideas for incorporating copper into your home décor, from kitchen accessories and barware to vases and planters! So if you’re getting your home ready for holiday guests, or just want to bring some beautiful copper touches into your home, you can check out the guide right here – and find a collection with some of my favorite copper pieces available on eBay here!

Pretty Paper in the Office: Globes

Whether you’re an avid traveler or have been eyeing one simply for décor (or both!), there’s no denying that there’s something enticing about a globe. As a child, I had a globe with topographical relief that I would spend hours with, studying the tallest mountain ranges around the world. Depending on the style, they can be beautiful and functional pieces of art or a touchstone to past adventures and future travels. I’ve put together a roundup of a few different globes you should take for a spin in your office space. – Julie

Fresh Cut Paper Flowers: Ranunculus

I’ll take a room full of ranunculus, please! I tend to love these blooms overflowing in large vases, but my new ceramic whiskey jug was just begging to be used. A dainty grouping on the porch is equally adorable, wouldn’t you agree? The best thing about paper flowers… your favorite variety doesn’t have to be in season to make a statement at home. Cheers to taking in some ranunculus goodness in the middle of Autumn, friends! – RachaelFresh Cut Paper Flowers: Ranunculus / Appetite Paper for Oh So Beautiful Paper
