Lattice is here!

As I mentioned earlier, I was inspired to design an invitation using Poppy as the main color component. Lattice is the wonderful result! Hope you like it!

orange crush!

Inspiration . . . I have been seeing a lot of orange recently - and I love it! A bright orange like our Poppy Colorscope goes so well with just about any theme. It can be rustic if paired with Chocolate. Or it can be fun and whimsical when paired with Chartreuse or Blossom. If you really want to be chic, put it with crisp white or industrial grey. Check out these orange Dahlias too! I LOVE Dahlias (hey, it's my daughter's middle name). Hmmm, I feel a Poppy orange invitation brewing . . . stay tuned.

These drink stirers caught my eye for their pop of bright orange color and sleek modern style. Also, LOVE this J.Crew Mirabelle dress in this "Orange Peel" color. Why didn't they make bridesmaids and wedding dresses when I got married!!!

keeping busy!

Well, the busy wedding season is upon us. I don’t think I’ll ever get used to the seasonal nature of this business. I really shouldn’t even be sitting here writing this - but I am. I need a break and the little one is napping! (In case you don’t know, I have a seven month old, gorgeous baby girl.) I’ve been trying to figure out what the “trends” are this season. So far I don’t see any except that they are the same as last season. Seems like large floral motifs are hot (again). Our Bloom design is a bestseller!

But right now I am loving our Daisy wedding invitation, it’s a new design we added recently. We used Curry Colorscope paper as a backing, which I love because it’s not your typical daisy yellow.
