Michiko + Brian - "Eat. Drink. Be Married." Wedding Invitations

One of the greatest things about my job is getting to know clients from all over the world who work with me to design custom wedding and event invitations.  Michiko contacted me all the way from the Yukon for help with the invitations for her special day.  She and her fiance, Brian (a chef), were looking for an invitation suite that reflected their love of all things foodie!  She spottted my "Eat. Drink. Be Married." Invites on line, fell in love, and asked me to customize the design to reflect their Pink & Apple Green color scheme.  So fun!

Oh Baby! - Our Big News + Jenn's Irish Baby Shower Details

Miss me?  I'm finally breaking my long silence in cyberspace and trying dip my toes into blogging again.  I've been working on a ton of fun projects, trudging through the first trimester pregnancy  blahs, and trying to wrap my head around the fact that the new little one meant to complete our happy family is actually (eek) TWINS!!

I'm happy to report that I'm now well into my 2nd trimester and the intense morning sickness (double the babies means double the yuck!) and bone deep fatigue have mellowed into something a little more manageable (I can actually manage to stay awake past 9 o'clock now!)  So I finally have a little time to post some pics of my latest (and not-so-latest) projects.

Up first: Details from Jenn's St. Patrick's Day inspired Baby Shower whose invitations I featured all the way back in April!  For the shower itself, we chose an "Irish Blessing" theme for the printable decor items and I love how traditional themes blended with a modern aesthetic for a fun, fresh look! 

Guests were greeted by a banner proclaiming "Welcome Beautiful One" in Gaelic.

 Guests signed a keepsake poster to be framed and hung in the baby's room!


Cupcake Toppers featured blessings for Baby M's future including "Joy", "Love", Strength", "Wealth", "Health", & "Friendship" in English on one side and Gaelic on the reverse!

Guests left with little bags of leprechaun's gold (chocolate coins) tied with custom favor tags featuring blessing messages.

"May your home always be too small to hold all your friends!"

Congratulations, Jenn, on you new baby girl!! (And thanks for sending over these photos so I can share!)
