Brides, Babies, and Birthdays!

Lately I have been creating invitations for events other than weddings and I have to say, it has been quite fun!  I enjoy creating new invitations and these invitations are no exception:

Baby Shower invitations for a St. Patrick's Day shower - can you spot the 4 leaf clover?

1st birthday party invitations for a little cutie pie: 

Baby Shower invites for a mommy to be:

And some awesome bridal shower invites:

I am very busy working on finalizing invitations for the first spring weddings, stay tuned to the blog for more to come!

Fun, Fancy, and Fabulous

Previously I shared with you the invitations that I created for a bride having a peacock themed wedding.  The invitations were gorgeous, classy and lots of fun:

Then of course, Remaking Memories created this awesome magnet that I gave as a special gift to the bride and groom:

After the initial invitations were done, I met with the super creative bride and we got to work creating lots of other items for the wedding and reception.  We started with this menu card:

 I created several signs that were displayed in various areas throughout the reception:

 Then came the wedding programs:

And custom thank you notes:

The next piece of stationery was my absolute favorite.  Remember when I said the bride was super creative?!  Well, here is an example of some genius - - she had me create Wedding Mad Libs to be placed at each place setting!!  The guests filled out the Mad Libs in tribute to the bride and groom; how fun is that?!  I was so excited making these, I cannot imagine the fun that the guests had filling them out. 

The Mad Libs were folded and were placed under the menu cards at each place setting.  When each guest received their Mad Lib, it looked like this, ready to be filled out: (minus my finger holding it down, of course!)
Then, after the guests had fun filling in their goofy answers, they opened it up to reveal the 'Wedding Prediction' they had just created for the newlyweds:

I can see how this personal and unique touch can be treasured for years to come.  Great idea, Mandy!

And lastly I would like to share the seating chart that I created.  This 18x24 seating chart poster was printed and framed in a black frame.  The chart was stunning, just like the rest of the wedding details:

This wedding was filled with thoughtful, fun, and fabulous details.  And of course, the bride and groom are pretty fun and fabulous themselves.  Cheers to you, Mandy and Nick.  I wish you many years of wedded bliss!
